I agree. The peanut tank defines the Sportster as far as I'm concerned. I like low, but give me the 883L version, which features the peanut tank, then give me a 1200cc power plant. Until then, I'll keep mine.Originally posted by roycrown
It looks OK and will probably sell, although I personally would have prefered the traditional smaller tank.
I always thought the motor defined the Sportster. There have been many tanks on the XL's, the peanut being only one, and any of the new peanut tanks are too damn big anyway. Once they stretched the Peanut tank, it stopped being a true Sportster tank, at least by using some people's logic.MadCity said:I agree. The peanut tank defines the Sportster as far as I'm concerned.

In order to make a sporty as low as the BT's you mentioned, they'd probably have to change the design of the frame to sink the seat lower.nidan said:If they want to build a low 1200 sporty you think they would be able to get lower . The 883L , Low Rider , all Softails and the V-rod are all lower laden
According to early model year official HD literature (2 months ago), only the FRONT muffler on an 883 Low was to have a cat (AND Touring rigs!).Xena said:Judging from the video it looks like are targeting women with this bike.
I like everything about the bike and would even consider trading my 883, but wondering if it has the cat in the muffler.
