I think it looks pretty good, but I'm not a Harley only person. As far as the turn signal on one side, I switch from my Harley to my KTM all the time and it really is incredibly simple. Some of the lines of the fairing have a resemblance to several different motorcycles if you look at it from the right angle but there are only so many things you can do with a fixed fairing. It looks like it has longer footboards then HD and the ergos look like it may fit a wider range of rider size. Won't know that until I demo one. I've had three Harleys, an 08 Fatboy, 2012 Road Glide Custom, and my current 18 FLTRU. My current is my least favorite of the three. I'm interested in how it performs compared to the advertised numbers it's getting. Not saying this will replace my 18 but I'm keeping an open mind.

I saw one set of bars on the accessories tab the other day that has somewhat decent rise, after pulling back about 9". The shape was odd, to say the least.

The Chieftan is similar in that the bars pulls back from the fairing and then up; it must be quite a bit of work to replace and I can imagine aftermarket support will be very limited.

I still want to try and ride one of these, the tech intrigues me somewhat.

I saw the bars in Adam Sandovals video. I think this bike will sell. Have you read the Cycleworld article? Not a bad thing to say about it. I can't wait to ride one, all the performance and handling we've been asking from Harley for 4 years. I have a feeling my street glide will be gone and one of these in red will be my next bike.

The bars are adjustable for different preferences and rider sizes. Some like bars lower or pulled back because of shorter reach or you can move them up and have mini apes. Can save 1500 bucks instead of taking bike to dealer to switch out bars like 70-80 percent of us Harley riders do

I looked up the base model because I like chrome, but it only shows it in one color. Is that true or am I missing something? Tried to find the color chart on their site but no luck.

Nope not missing anything. The base model is one color, the dark horse is 3 and the limited is 3. Most of the Indians are only available in a couple colors.

Base model only comes in titanium metallic for now but sure they will offer other colors in future. Nice color though
