Anyone keeping up with the news? I think the engine looks great managed to mimic a side valve pretty well for a OHV engine. Sound clip is interesting as well, % of USA content should be high. Hoping for some spy shots soon.

There was a thread or two floating around on this. Love their ads poking fun at Harley, and pretty curious to see what they come up with to jump into the market. Sure have a pretty engine, so I hope the bodywork and frame do it justice.

The Chief looks to be direct competition to the Heritage. All I gotta say is it better beat a Heritage by $1K at least to be competitive.

If they have baggers, more than $2K difference. You gotta win them HD riders over. Fortunately they have the Victory quality and performance vouching for their capabilities. I really hope they put a hurtin' on HD.

At Bikeweek they had a running engine.. Sounded GREAT!! All the parts were matched up with the older engine.. Carb/FI on the correct side etc. I asked about a frame and they were still working on that "minor" problem.
Can't wait to see the whole bike together...
I'm not a cruiser guy but my Father rode Indian.. HATED harley riders...
