Bought one :o)

Have placed my order to for a new XV1900. Picking it up on 17th Sept. Managed to get if for 7499, that's about $12500 US, which I thought was a good deal. How does that compare? Can't wait as this is my first cruiser after years on just about every other type of bike

Its fantastic. Much smoother than I imagined it would be and far easier to handle at slow speeds. The centre of gravity makes it feel a lot lighter. As I am fairly short (5'9') I find that the bars are a bit of a stretch when fully turned but I have ordered some Baron Bar Risers which will sort that out. Fuel consumption is surprisingly good for such a big bike. I am very impressed all round and I cant fault it.

Congratulations

congratulations on the new bike. Your price sounds good and the bike too. I agree the bike handles good for its size and weight. The balance front to rear is improved and the center of balance is lower than older models. The Aluminum frame I guess helps this. Is also better counter balanced engine also.

Wonder if you see many Yamaha's in London? Do you turn some heads when you ride by on your big V Twin? Here is Ohio Yamaha is popular but Harley out numbers us in Cruisers. Lots of smaller cruisers but numbers shift to Harley as the cost goes up. The Stratoliner has more performance and I believe an edge on reliability. Harley has the image. Sport bikes are popular with the younger riders. Most look really uncomfortable, the sport touring bikes look good. The Japanese are most popular there. BMW and Triumph have some nice bikes. Not quite as popular.

I am always curious when I see experienced Harley owners' comments and perspectives on the Liner. I was set on HD when I was looking this summer to upgrade from my V-Star 1100, and rode all the touring models. I still love Harleys, fantastic looks, sound, fit and finish, and accessories available by the boatload. But the power, value and, well, sophistication of the Liner (power, handling, oil-cooler, aluminum frame, shifting, braking, parking lot maneuverability, and did I mention power?) won my heart and wallet. This is only the fourth bike I have owned, but I can't imagine anything nicer than that sweet 113-incher singing to me through the Cobras. This puppy rocks!
