I think we’ll see the Meteor in the next two months then the 650 cruiser by the end of the year will be REs next release. The 650 Himalayan I believe is at lest a year away.

Seems they are introducing a sport version of the 350 next, something to compete directly with the Honda Highness. I like the looks of it and would consider one if they import it. But in truth, I have enough bikes.

Here in the NW we have to jump on the freeway for short spurts to get around the city. The much loved  discontinued 500 singles would do that. From what I’m see hearing the 350 is/will struggle at 60-70.  For that reason I think the 350 is going to have a up hill battle selling in the USA. 

I know what you mean “ But in truth, I have enough bikes.”

2008 AVL Bullet Electra Gray
2010 Bullet G5 Deluxe Black
2017 535 GT Continental Red
2018 Himalayan White

You would think they would get a move on now the bullet is discontinued surely it cant take that long to put a 650 engine in a motorcycle frame.
