Before I get into my review let me say first off that I owned my VTX 1300 S for 5 1/2 years and loved the bike. I did every mod I could think of to the bike and still found myself wanting more. The VTX is a fine machine I just found myself bored with it and was ready to upgrade. I had a brand new 1800 N picked out and was ready to go do the deal and then I stopped and looked at the Roadliner. You probably have figured out by now what bike I bought. This particular bike is the S model that has all the chrome goodies on it like the Spec 3 VTX's. It also already had the Yamaha windshield, backrest, saddlebags, crash bar and Yamaha's 2 into 2 pipes. The bike is 1854 cc V Twin, belt drive. The power and torque is amazing. The bike has an aluminum frame and weighs right at 750 lbs. Stock horsepower at the rear wheel is said to be 91 and 117 ft. lbs of torque. Crankshaft horsepower is 101 and torque is 124. The bike also has a single monoshock rear suspension, hydraulic clutch, dual front discs and single rear. I think the nicest feature of the bike is the removal of the driver seat is done with the turn of a key. Fit and finish is second to none. Very little plastic on the bike. I'm very pleased with the bike so far. If it is as trouble free as my VTX I will be very happy.
