Last week Morrillu officially introduced us to the Harley Davidson XL1200V Sportster Seventy-Two. A model that makes it very clear how they think of Harley Davidson that classic looking motorcycles have to be. Ape-Hanger handlebar, Peanut tank, Slash Cut exhausts, Metal Flake paint, Pinstripping on the tank are all the accessories that one of these Milkwaukee twins needs to remember what motorcycles were like in the seventies of the last century.
Of course, it is one thing to see it in photos and another a little different to see it filming, even through a video produced by the American firm. As indicated in the entry published in Derestricted, we can consider it quite typical and topical. But since it is what they are looking for, we have to consider it a success. Although to finish convincing me of the classic of a motorcycle like this they would have to re-manufacture the 750 cc engine that was a good part of the spirit of those first Sposrter. The benefits and others remain for other brands less concerned about what their bikes look like in the California sun.
