Re: Honda VTX 1800 = cool cruiser

It has been only a matter of time before the Japanese bike manufacturers realized that Americans don't really like slow cruisers. They buy slow, poor handling Harleys with bad breaks for $13,000 to $20,000 and then spend thousands more making them go faster, handle better and stop without giving you a heart attack. The VTX - on paper - seems to have the performance of an after-market Harley and doesn't look like a Harley clone. If the bike turns out to be what it seems, this will change the cruiser market. Harley, by the way, is already coming out with a much higher HP, water-cooled engine. So we can expect to benefit from an upcoming power-cruiser war.
