This bike if very quick for a Harley and is geared quite well for maximum acceleration. The simulation shows that the bike is only about 0.1 second off of its ideal gearing setup, so Harley obviously designed this bike for straight-line performance. But like most Harleys, this thing suffers in the curves and its lackluster track times will show that. Although it will do the 1/4 mile in 14.3, it cannot hang with average cars on most tracks. It tends to beat most cars off the line but as soon as it hits the first corner or large sweeping curve, it will generally fall behind and never catches up after that. You could probably chalk that up to a chassis that was built for cruising and inadequate tires. This bike definitely isn't at home on the track.
