Better, or worse, I'm not yet sure. But certainly dated, and rather common. I mean, if you're going to do custom on a new platform, try something original.

I didn't like the HD bags on the Vision but I think on the Yamaha they look really nice. The lines work well and I'd certainly ride it.

I have it on absolute authority that it doesn't have enough horsepower.

I have thought that since I saw a few Dyno sheets .... But the more I watch my tach when I ride, the more I realize, I would do better with a power band like that. If only it didn't cost 26k plus, lol.

Ness and Yamaha. You guys have after market.
I test rode the Yamaha Eluder and loved the low-end power. I also liked the riding position but didn't like the look of the Eluder from a side view without the rear trunk. Corry Ness knocked this Yamaha Eluder out of the park. :biggrin::headbang: The rear fender and saddlebags make this Yamaha Eluder look like a better rendition of the Harley Road Glide in my opinion.

I heard they were going to come up with a custom tach for it, but when they saw it in action they realized that all they needed to do was connect a torque meter directly to the crank to read out.. rpms were unnecessary.
