I might be interested in one of these ugly buggers as a run about it Thailand if I can use the mid mounts.

Nice to see action in the mid size bike world, you now have a lot of choices. Do the Hipsters really buy that many bikes? I have NEVER seen a Hipster on any bike, mostly I just see them walking down the middle of the street carrying signs and breaking things.

Ugly, indeed. What's up with the 'easyrideresque' rake on that tiny little eyesore of a tank?

The right advertising firm will convince the so called hipsters that they aren't quite complete until they own a Honda Rebel. It's called marketing and it works, maybe a little too well.

Tru dat, Ryk - A good sales pitch has led me to a less than wise purchase a time or two as well. And believe it or not - I'm not as dumb as I look.

I actually like the look of it better than Harleys 500, wont sell as well though, wrong name on the tank.

Does anyone actually buy the HD 500? I thought it was just for training new riders. The Honda does look funny. I think the Enfield is best in class.

I believe they sell a few in Australia.Something about the 750 HD isn't legal for new riders or whatever.

I'm seeing quite a few of them down here..650cc is as big as a learner can have so I dont think the 750 will ever come here.

We have the 750 over here...but in the showrooms alongside the other HD options this thing just looks like a poor relation.......quality of ancillaries eg forks, brakes, paintwork and general finish just looks, to me at any rate, shoddy.
I've only seen 1 on the road so far.
Are they selling better across the pond?
