What is wrong with the gearing? I hear bump to 1200 and it really has a lot of power.The 883 really is a starter bike because of the gearing. It's a joke.
This one makes me laugh a little. Cause you got the harley guys going its not about power I want to drive slow and enjoy the pretty scenary. I have said not having power is a safety issue when it comes to passing. But from what I hear the low end power is not an issue with XLs, they are quick off the go.They'll also tell you the 883 doesn't have enough power to get out of it's own way.
I was thinking about a single seater, sat on a bunch at the bike show. XL was comfortable compared to metric stuff. I have thought hopping one up would be fun. Though I was told you are going to be stuck with it, cause it is XL with no resale value. Not sure that would stop me if it ever play out right.
