Not a fan. This feels too much like Indian chasing Harley. I think the leather looks great, but the style of the bike is too much like the glides out there. The plastic wind screens for the legs look cheap. The arm rests for the passenger make the thing look like a dental chair. I'll admit the rear trunk looks great and the way they incorporated the passenger seat into the bike is clever. I just can't think that I'm looking at another model of Harley.
My two cents

In other news, Polaris also released a new factory custom Victory Magnum


And the highly anticipated three wheel vehicle, the Slingshot


It looks like Polaris is trying to grow exponentially

My 2010 Ultra CVO Went out the door @35,900 and $900 extended warranty, that was 4 years ago. Then Headers,Cams,Vision tuner, auto tuner, stage 1 all to get the power of the 111 today, so add in another $4,000. The bike is great at lets say 41k invested all in on a 4 year old machine, again still a great bike, but lets say the Road Master rolls out the door at $30,000 all fancied up, we are still miles ahead on cost compared to a CVO Ultra 2014 $45k. I will say, spend the money you say on some fantastic road trips and say in nice places and eat good food for a few years!! Hello affordable Road Master

Don't feel bad, I toss out over $31,000.00 in accessorizing my 2008 anniversary Ultra Classic HD plus buying to, there's another $27,000.00. Granted it took from 2007 to 2014 to add on to it.
But, that all changed when I bought chrome (surprise stuff) for my lady, HD kept back ordering one front rim ( stock ) in April 2014, she wrote to them, no type of answer back. I called them. We know, but sorry for your problems. I then wrote and sent citified letters to ALL twelve broad of Directors. They had only (1) one of them call the dealership (But not us) asking questions on how long have they known us, and what kind of people we are. That was just this November 2014.
Later I saw an advertisement about Indian, went out saw it, rode it. Now getting ready to buy it! Thanks HD, I'm never going back to you!
