Some of the tech i like, but some of the design puts me off a little. Kind of give me a mid life crisis feel on some parts of its design.

Edit: I just read a review at Ultimate Motorcycle that put the dry weight at approx 645 lbs. Much more believable than 427 given in the link above.
Maybe they are considering "dry weight" to be no fuel, no battery, no engine... :D

I'm gonna guess mid $20K. The limited release TFC Rocket 3 with all the up-rated parts/carbon fiber was $29,900.
We’ll see. The marketing hype describes it as the absolute best of everything, so it’ll definitely be right up there.

Not my cup of tea old chap. I did borrow a Rocket 3 for a weekend. It was a giggle, especially demolishing a tryer in a 911. But I wasn't sorry to give it back.
My wife liked it very much. The vibes in particular. Nudge nudge wink wink.

And what does that say for you?
