COL­LU­SION, ETC.

Cycle World - - Intake -

I'm con­vinced that your cov­er­age of new Har­ley-david­sons is in col­lu­sion with the guys who pop­u­late their cor­po­rate and deal­er­ship web pages. The de­tails are thor­ough and ac­cu­rate, right down to the last chrome nut, but one rarely sees a hint of the MSRP. They must en­joy that look of shock on cus­tomers' faces when they walk through the show­room. BOB GOMOLA DUBOIS, PA

We cer­tainly should have pro­vided pric­ing in the Oc­to­ber is­sue, but H-D does plainly list pric­ing in its web­site, and you’ll find in our Her­itage Clas­sic 114 test and Street Bob side­bar prices are clearly listed.

Af­ter re­view­ing the Sof­tail lineup it ap­pears there are no H-D cruis­ers with a "stan­dard" rid­ing po­si­tion. That's pretty weak. PAT CUR­RAN RED BLUFF, CA

Pat, this is the “cruiser” lineup. If Har­ley­david­son ever builds an­other sport­ing stan­dard like the XR1200X, more peo­ple who say they want a stan­dard-style bike from H-D should buy one. But you can fit mid-mount con­trol to the Fat Bob, for ex­am­ple, and that’s pretty close.
