      Inverted forks too. Funny you should post this, I was just watching a Roadglide v. Chieftain video last night and the guy was saying he felt there'd be a fixed fairing in Indian's future. Not thrilled with the look of that water-cooled motor; I hope they make it look better. Kawasaki has done a good job with that, especially with the drifter.

        +1 on the water cooled engine comment. That is my biggest complaint about water cooled motorcycle engines, they all look like turds! IMO the engine is the "jewel" of the bike and the designers need to dress them up a bit when they are water cooled. It seems like the idea now is "its just a power plant" not that it is a very crucial part to the over all aesthetic of the bike.

          Right back to the not-so-successful Polaris/Victory styling I see, except for the Honda VT1300 looking top covers.
          Maybe they deliberately used some 'interim' parts they picked out of the old Victory bins for pre-production stealth runs.

          I rode a fixed fairing bike for 16 years, stable as a rock at any speed.
          They seriously need to rethink the look of that engine and big honking Model-T radiator if they plan on stealing customers from HD (RG) or even Yamaha (Eluder/Venture).
          Yuck.

          I'd like to see what the whole thing looks like. The motor looks like a Scout motor. The front wheel/ forks look Victory.
          They posted this last week on the Indian forum and Indian asked them to take it down. They naturally obliged and not along took down the pictures, but deleted the whole thread.
          I do like the look of air cooled motors, but am really warming up to (or cooling off to as it maybe) the thought of a less hot motor between my legs.
          owning a motorcycle is not a matter of life or death, it is much more important than that

            Wait until the radiator fans kick on in traffic.
            Radiator bikes are anything BUT cooler between the legs.
            LOL
