    Pretty nice bike for sure.  The 116 engine with at least stage II mods makes good power.  I've seen many posted dyno charts with a basic Stage II setup right at 105 HP and 130 TQ, this in a bike that weighs only 700 Lbs.  So depending on who the rider is and if their bike is modified, this thing could very well eat your lunch if you try and play around with it.

    It is definitely a nice looking bike and I would have no problems owning one, but it doesn't scream the looks that a Raider has.

      I don't understand why the manufactures wont rack out the forks like on Raider and Stryker.
      Personally I think that's what makes or Yammy's look better then most other bikes.

      Agreed!

      Oh and that Indian doesn't have the look of the Stryker either.

      My guess is they're trying to stay within the classic lines of the older Indian bikes. Going for a modern look without too much nostalgia mixed in.  Still not paying $18K for that bike or any bike, not even a Raider....LoL

      Yep, a bad-azzzz sleeper, but I'll stick to my Raider with the bling and the goodies!!  We all like what we like!!    O8O


      There's no substitute for cubic inches and a good engine management system!   Hmmm, well maybe a blower, NOS or turbo....

      I'll take my Raider over any bike out there, the Mistress D will be the last bike on 2 wheels I will ever own.

      I got excited about the new chief when I first saw it.  If you haven't already, go throw your leg over one.  Maybe its just me but I found the ergonomics absolutely awful.  Low seat, high foot boards, and a long reach to the bars made it feel very awkward.

      It is a great looking bike, impressive motor specs too.  But I think rider posture was an afterthought.  I bet the bobber version's mini apes would help a little bit.

      I felt the same way. The bars fit me great, but I felt like I was folded in half with my knees to my ears.

      My understanding of this bike is the foot controls can be moved to three different positions, with the furthest forward this might feel better

      That may help.
      When you use the bike builder and add on forward controls you can actually see the leg position change in the animation.
      If you look at the picture for the different models you can also see leg position change
