just been reading various things on the interweb about the new Polaris machines.
They certainly look interesting and I do like the styling of the engine. I'm less enamoured of the styling of the bike overall, the ergonomics look "wrong" to me - the whole modern "low seat, high footboards, pullback handlebars" proportions seems somehow not right, along with the ever-longer wheelbases; perhaps it's just me?
I'd have liked to see a modern Scout. I know someone who has a Kawasaki Drifter, the 800cc one, and apart from some slightly "blobby" styling it is a tidy bike and very good to ride. Still, there it is.
I'd ignored the various S&S powered machines on the basis that they really weren't Indians in any meaningful sense of the term. However, these new bikes aren't AM Harley clones with minor styling changes; they aren't Matchlesses or Royal Enfields, either.
What do people think?
