It weighs 578lbs, the seat looks uncomfortable for more than a 20 minute ride, it's powered by a Harley motor and it costs $78,000.
If I was in the market for an exclusive power cruiser I think I'd go for a Diavel and spend the other 50 thou on hookers and blow.

Holy ! I thought it was a decent looking bike until I saw the price tag.

I see more archs than actual arches. I agree with Bubblebee Diavel or MCV Dragster for power cruisers. Even though my Diavel spent most of its short life with me in the shop, they are great bikes in concept at least.

I thought the over-priced, Harley-based off-the-shelf "custom" motorcycle days were done?

Yep. More of the same ol' lame-o.

You can buy a very nice bike with just the "reservation deposit". But I guess for the uber wealthy, it's just a number.

So it's under powered, over weight and cost way to much.

Sounds like my x wife.

I like the new Confederates, but I also like the older Cat.

Pricing on a used one is surprisingly lower than you would expect.
