The Yamaha Bolt blew away the Harley Sportster.
It must be rigged I tell you
I like the bolt. If i didn't have a little ninja 650, that would have been a good contender for a 2nd round town bike.
No Surprise to me ..
While I'm not sure it would have made a lot of difference, it wasn't quite fair to compare an old carbureted 883 to a new fuel injected Yamaha. The new Sporty is fuel injected and has more HP and torque due to better fuel management.
So you think the newer FI Sportster makes more HP?
"The Bolt beat the Sportster"
"Yeah, but what won't?"
No surprise here, my wife rides a 650 yamaha classic and walks away from my buddies 883 hugger anytime
Yeah but it's not a Harley.
Well, even the new street 750 sucks the doors off the sporty at the 1/4 mile, doing the quarter in the mid 13's. The bolt runs it in about the same. The sportster I hope with the new electric bike (livewire) and the street models are out the door soon. Looks like Harley MIGHT be considering joining the rest of us in the 21st century.
An Ironhead. Sportster, Roadster, and a 1200cc Blockhead later, and I had no doubt the 950cc Yamaha would win. Did anyone think the Snortster had a chance? Kg
You had an Ironhead too? Oh the stories I could tell about how much I hated that bike...
