Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

I'm sticking with my first prediction from the earlier bike release; I'm going with a cafe racer-style bike.

'15 Magnum X-1

'15 Kia Soul EV, blue and white

'13 Cadillac ATS, 2.0L Turbo Premium, blue with black interior

'12 Vegas 8 Ball - Arlen Ness HD cafe fairing, MBW LED signals, side-mount plate, factory cruise, heated grips, Corbin heated seat, more...

'10 Cross Country Tour, black, way too much to list now. Some videos are available here: My Youtube Channel Feed - SOLD!!! *sniff*

'01 Honda Magna, black, too much to list

From the pic they posted it appears to be a black (surprise) Kingpin plus diamond cut cylinders, minus chrome cylinder head covers, minus inverted forks. Surely it has the steel spoke wheels running tubed bias plys, handlebars that mimic insect antennas, an odd sized wheel or two.

Chrome may not get you home, but apparently style will make you a pile...

I was hoping for that too but probably not. It only has one brake line and if they made a cafe racer it'd more than likely have twin discs like the Hammer.

2007 Hammer, 260 Metz, Shotgun exhaust, S3 cams, LED hidden turn signals, HID Hi/lo headlights, a few Ness accessories, S&S intake, PC3, and dyno tune.

Sorry, but after the hype around the Hard Ball reveal you will have to excuse me if I don't hold my breath

If the picture is actually a "sneak peek" then I agree. But maybe they will still go with the café racer and, keeping with the Hard/High Ball theme, call it Humongous Ball

Victory will bring back the round headlight with this model.safe_image.jpg

Since it's last 2 models came out with matte paint and ape hangers, this new model will very likely have those features as well. Also considering the Kingpin 8-Ball has gone away, a safe bet would be on a matte black, throw back round headlight, and ape hangers Kingpin.

I only have one question left to be answered on the 20th: Will it have factory removable hard bags?

By the way, I'm digging those cheese wedge replacements for my XR - if they fit, I'll buy a pair as soon as they're available.
