Sounds like you're bashing Harley?
From what I understand, the engine is totally redesigned albeit it looks similar.
As I recall, Yamaha used the same old "tired and true" engine design from 1983 right thru to 2013 in their Venture line ... what's that... 20 years? At least Harley stopped putting cassettes in their bikes several years ago (did they ever have a cassette player?) and went to FI a long time ago. Yamaha continued to use carbs in their big tourer .. And what is mother Yamaha now offering in a touring bike?
I don't care what anyone says, at least Harley continues to upgrade and improve their product, cater to their clients, and stay in tune with current technology.
