No, as a rule, RideApart are generally clueless and more of the cheerleader squad.
On the other hand, HD deserves all the cheerleading it can get on that bike, as it's an outstanding effort from them, and I'm speaking as a "Harley hater"
Of course that's a 100% marketing showpiece, as its main purpose is to gauge people's reaction. Harley got really burned on the V-ROD and their core market is so conservative, it insists on IC engines where the last engineering improvement was in the '60s. They're seriously swimming against the current here. Harley has to sneak things in like fuel injection, ABS, and water cooling and STILL make it look like a '60s aircooled dinosaur.
I'm glad to see they're teaming with someone and not pulling the usual know-it-all attitude that they do.
