I was listening to a marketing guy talk about tricks they use the other day. One of their old ones is to sell two products that are very similiar with one having more bells and whistles. They then set the price of the lesser object very near greater object. Almost always, humans will buy the greater object thinking the are getting a lot more for their money. Fact is, the mfgs are cleaning up on low cost, high margin bells and whistles.Not even sure why they make a 500 if read the specs the frames and most else are the same for the 500 and 750 except Engine Displacement .. But we will see .. But they had good luck with the 883 and 1200 on the same bike with 90% wishing had gone with 1200 to start ..
It's great your daughter rides a Sportster, nice you could go for rides with her.I hope they sell a lot of them, the more kids on motorcycles the less in cars texting on their phones. If I was a youngster I think I would still rather have a Sportster though or a smaller cc Triumph.
Here's a couple of pics of my 16 yr old daughter on her Sportster. I know no one cares but I'm to proud of her not to sharethumb up
Red line is 7000 - 8000 RPM'sAnother bike with the Revolution engine. Roughly half the size of the V Rod motor. It could be interesting to ride. I don't know how it will be accepted though. It's going to need to be revved a lot more than traditional TC Air Cooled or even the current V Rod to get power.
Honestly, I think it is a good idea. It seems to me that the MC is trying to slowly integrate a "new" and technology into the mainstream.
First thought on Harleys release of the 500cc and 750cc models… Interesting.http://rideapart.com/2013/11/2014-harley-davidson-street-750-and-street-500-official-photos/
Smaller than expected, water cooled, and made in India. Will wonders ever cease?
