Did this video help you?

Bacon Dog: Redwings vs Sketchers. One is the original, the other is newer and made in china, the other is heavier and heavy duty, classic and can be re-soled. The other is more sporty, handles better and is lighter weight but does not last as long. 

roundingcorners: let's do a drag race and forgo proper riding equipment from the waist down. . . typical cruiser mentality.

ziah Reid: I like the harleys subtler design, and with the harley you always have the option of a 1200 conversion. I know harleys are outdated in their design but that's part of the reason why I think their cool. Not the chromed out ones with the restrictive fish tail exhaust tips but the more classic looking ones.

Dragan Marj: Why would you compare a 2001 model with a new bolt, makes sense if you don't want to have a fair race, lol!

Harley Russell: If this were a sportbike comparison then power would really matter, but on cruiser bikes [or more standard-style cruisers like the Sportster] I don't find power to be nearly as important.

clinicalpsychologist: try that with a Night Rod and the yamaha will be way way behind

FMJFilmMedia: I don't know I am more drawn to Harley than jap bikes. I know for a fact that Harley's are more expensive to buy and fix. You do get your money worth with jap bikes. But I will still own a Harley. HD Road King owner.

Ray Wilson: Ok they say the bolt is faster and a better bike but yet the 883 still out sells it. I had an 07 883 and put 32000 miles on it I raced a lot of other bike and let me tell you I could out run most all of the other cruisers in the 900 cc class and I got beat a few times but not very often. Secondly why do all the other bike have to compare themselves to Harley. Is that because Harley is the standard that all other need to be held to 

Jamie Nichols: What year was the bolt? Although the sporty had less miles, it's 14 years old from when I'm watching the video... I'm trying to be fair, but a dozen years of technology tilts the scales. If ya want to run it against my 2014 breakout let me know... I'll kick your ass... haha

Roy Diedesch: That's not even one of the F.I. sportsters.....I'm not a harley guy, but this doesn't seem even remotely even...smh

Thrillcekr: Yamaha has a bigger engine and costs more. What exactly got proven there?

DrJekyl30: @Vanrocco thanks for your comment. You are one of those that makes sense. But you have to agree, well you don't have to but most HD people are like cult members. I was watching a movie called children of sorrow. Watch that movie and dig where I am coming from. Some people can be talked into anything and if you speak in the right manner you got them hooked.

JACKSONLEWISOFCANADA: you mean an engine with almost 100cc more power won? wow thats surprising!!!!! NOT!!!!!!!!! this point of this video is really to be pointless.....

brian meister: sorry, but even though the 883 is a 2001, it still has 70 year old engineering. And just think, now that Harley has a production facility in India, the quality can only improve, right? Want American made? Want quality and reliability? HD is none of the above. 

lottsalasagna: Take them on a 500 mile ride and see what bike will be in front.

LBKewee: Same bike my ass. 13 year difference in models and no EFI on the Harley?

Tim Mitcham: First of all, both companies make good quality products or they could not stay in business. HD was founded over a hundred years ago in the U.S., making it an AMERICAN company! Yamaha was founded in 1955 in Japan, making it a Japanese company! When I was in my 20s riding my Harley (This was way before they were considered "cool" like they are these days. You know, B4 American Choppers, when Jesse James was still a kid and all the "big money" people had not started buying Harleys faster than the factory could make them.), I was asked how fast mine would go. My answer- the speed limit. I'm NOT a prude. I have driven cars upwards of 140 MPH. Now I wouldn't mind having a Bolt to ride. It looks like a pretty nice bike. But, after all is said and done, the Sportster IS a HARLEY DAVIDSON and the Bolt is JUST a Japanese made Yamaha. I am American born and raised - so is Harley Davidson. Given a choice, I would HAVE to go with the Sportster. BTW I have 2 Sportsters in my garage out back :-)

mike kent: Of course the yamahog is going to be faster the motor is bigger not by much and it's fuel injected what do u think is going to happen, throw some pipes on her jet the carb put a k&n air cleaner on her and then try it I bet the sporty wins. Harley all the way. 'MERICA!!!!

CarAudioJoe: 2:13 LOL@ Reslut

Octavio Segura: Ahyyy! como son mamones! la sportster no es para correr, a vista es mas bonita y montandola es de agradable sensacion, por otra parte en un año la H.D. valdra igual o mas y la Bolt?.... al fierro viejo!!

cengiz karacan: omparayı ona vermem 883 nıce xv950 bad

Donny Dittmer: Harley is carbureted of course the fuel injected bike is going to win. idiots

Ray Charles: The guy on the Harley needs to learn about giving it all throttle in a race. I never heard of someone in a race NOT giving it all the available throttle. If that's how Harley makes it, they've really gone down. Likely, Bolt wins anyway.

Scott Heldman: What a stupid drag race test. Did you really pair a new bike against a 2001? And, then say, "the bikes are the same."

BrandonPrive1432: same resluts, lolol

Richard Einstein: I have a Yamaha 1700 Road Star and it absolutely destroys Harleys.

thejudgehasjudged: Always liked my Yamaha's and I've had a few but I'll be keeping my Super Glide I reckon. It's a steam engine and I love it :-)

Thomas Dennis: Performance wins. when I see H D's racing with Yamaha's on a track we will see who the winner is every time.

suseno andeskem: jos gonjos harlly I LIKE HARLLY

Jimmy Martin: I think ya missed the point. If you want to go fast get a sport bike. If you want to be cool get a Harley. If you want to be a rock star build your own. If you want to look like a dork buy a bolt and stand around telling everyone that you paid Harley money for a yamahaha. Oh its faster than the slowest Harley but slower than every crotch rocket..

journeyquest1: You will ALWAYS be able to get parts for a Sportster. But when the Yamahopper gets so many yrs they will discontinue parts. Plus its not hard to make it a 1200 after you get a few miles on it. Ill take the HD. More options.

aaron katz: What's the big deal? I bought my 883 because I liked the style more than any other bike. That's my opinion. The bolt looks like an 883 knock off to me. While it's definitely faster, I didn't buy a 600 pound motorcycle to race nor did 99% of riders. And if you did buy a motorcycle for racing, it wouldn't be either of these bikes.

brad hager: +Cruiser Customizing what kind of windshield is on that bolt?

Dillon Anderson: You guys have to admit this is not a fair race. Even if you don't like Harley, that sportster is not only an 883, (should have been a 1200) but it's over 10 years old. I don't care that it's only got 1000 miles on it. The '14 technology alone is far better then '01. And it still barely beat that bike. I think the race would have been different if you put a '14 1200cc sportster against that brand new bolt. You can't deny that no matter how much you dislike harley

Mike Smith: Did any one else notice at the end of the video, it said "Resluts?" That girl is not only a slut, she's a Re Slut! ;)

Allen Gardner: My 2014 883 would be at it. I know that for a fact. This is not really fair at all. But people will do whatever it takes to sell products to the masses of idiots. Apparently they will defend themselves as well. Even tho its clear this is total bs. I like both bikes. But come on people. 

Johnnie Smith: It's so plastic it's pathetic! When people can't afford a HD they always think thier pile of plastic is better, knowing they wish they had a HD! Save up your pennies for the real thing!!

DrJekyl30: Why are all the HD guys bringing up the 1200cc Sportster? That bike is 250cc larger than the bolt. Bolt vs 883 is a more fair comparison if there was one. Of course the Sportster 1200 would beat the Bolt. But don't get angry when you see an HD lose to another brand. Tell you what, put your 1200 Sportster up against my Raider and see how you come out. Is that a fair comparison? Now as far as speed goes, we all know that all HDs are slow until you spend an extra 5 to 7k to beef up your little 60hp stock bike. But you HD guys have a beast in your stable called the v-rod and you won't even consider that an HD. You HD guys kill me LOL. Buy what you like, ride what you like and leave it at that. Far as resale goes, I'm not ever looking to sell my bike. My Raider is a beast and wait til you see the finished product video.

Databyter: This vid made me smile, the comments make me laugh. Enjoy your Harleys gentlemen, I'm saving up for my Yamaha. To each their own. The bike I want is ugly as hell, but it looks good to me because it is honest and does what I want it to. Not interested in peg scrapers anymore.

Matt Drake: Bolt Vs 883ci Sporty. How about Bolt Vs 1200 Sporty

Vanrocco66: So the Harley wanna be with EFI was slightly faster then the 13 year old legend. ... Check back with me in 2 years when both are for sale. The Yamaha won't be worth pickle while the Harley will still hold value and will sell much faster simply because people want to own a Harley. 

armed4freedom: Allen Gardner shut the hell up, no your 883 would NOT do any better at all ever in any universe. Your completely full of crap. The 883 is widely known to be under powered and slow for the 800cc category. Hell an old intruder 800 absolutely destroys an 883. Hell it eats up my 1200 sportster. Get over it man the 883 is a cruiser in EVERY way, its slow as hell.

Joe Martin: No surprise here. The 883 is a slug. I'd like to see the Bolt go up against a 1200 Sportster. I think the outcome would be different.

brad hager: what kind of windshield is on that bolt?

Jack Smith: The harley looks much nicer , And i dont see it matters which one is faster thats not the point of these types of bikes .

KINGCOIL1973: Yeah that "bolt" looks like a virago to me. Wonder if Yamaha ever fixed that starter problem? In 20 years the 883 will be worth more than it is now and the Yamaha will be on craigslist for $200 because someone tried to make "something cool" out of it and lost interest and the title! Hahaha

iFDW: These comments are pathetic. Theyre bikes people. This isnt politics! Buy and ride what you like.

Frank Aubert: Here ya go :-0 Here we go with the first recall for Yamaha, or Star, if you prefer, nifty Bolt machine. The campaign has number 12V298000 and affects at least 3,900 motorcycles. The NHTSA report claims the bikes' engine may stall due to a wiring error: certain wires may have a slack or sag and the wiring harness may touch the exhaust manifold. The heat would cause the cables to melt and possibly short circuit. If a short circuit occurs, certain fuses would blow and this will most likely cause the engine to stall while riding, increasing the risk of a crash. Yamaha announced they will begin the recall in late July after notifying all the owners. Dealers will check the wiring harness and secure it away from the exhaust manifold. In case damage is detected, the harness will be first replaced. Bolt owners can get in contact with their dealers or can call Yamaha at 1-800-962-7926.

epiphoneplayer: I work at a dealership, it's not like this is the only comparison. Stock EFI 883 dyno compared to the bolt is a good way to see that all around the bolt has the edge. (The 883 has .1 more horse power at a higher rpm the bolt has 4 more foot pounds of torque at a lower rpm) So say what you want but the yamaha bolt truly is more reliable, faster, costs about the same (unless you go for the R-spec, which rides a lot smoother) we also sell harleys. It's just personal preference for some. Others just have to get Harley because of the name. Some can only get financed by Harley (because they take anyone) so again performance, comfort, and reliability goes to yamaha. That's just a fact. No need for argument.
