Did this video help you?

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.

Oscar V: hmm....I think I'll buy the Bolt

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. 

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. 

Buddy Vibe: I have an 883 sportster that a Honda 450 would beat in a drag race, but bottom line is your still riding a jap bike.. no thanks

DrJekyl30: @Millinium, see we were having a great conversation and then you had to go and ruin it lol. The only influence movies had on me as far as motorcycles go is watching guys riding with the wind in their faces with no helmets and just being one with the bike. As far as who looks cool on what bike, not a concern to me. Far as I am concerned I am the only cool one that matters to me. I could care less what kind of bike anyone else rides. Ride what you are happy with. I would never buy a certain type of bike because someone else looks cool on it or because someone else bought it. That's some gay crap to me LOL. Cuz you look good on it doesn't mean I will. But hey man to each his own. Ride on my friend.

Johnny Buipham: I just got my R-Spec today, he's a sweet boy to ride

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.

Cybeq: This is an interesting comparison, but nothing more. Cruiser buyers typically aren't interested in performance numbers like 0-60, 1/4 miles times, or top speed. If they were, they'd be shopping another category altogether. I'll keep my Sportster.

Ignacio Martinez: Harley Davidson 1200 custom vs Bolt?????

geoff carl: Please stop what you're doing and never do it again.

Rick Fortuna: A 2001 with 1000 miles on it does not make it a new bike. It just sat in someones garage and not driven which can do damage to the engine. I like the Bolt but this is a very poor comparison. 

Kevin Clifton: Today we have 2 bikes 13 years apart but still matched haha there's so many things to factor in over the 13 year period between bike building why not get 2 bikes of the same year? 

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

knox2613: It's funny reading these comments about speed when neither of these bikes were built for speed. Heck, take a Harley or Yamaha 1200 cc cruiser and put it up against a 600 cc sport bike and the 600 wins every time. A bike is only as good as its intended purpose. Stop making either of these out as "fast" bikes - especially that little 883.

Robert Jeffery: If the Bolt is so good in it's own right How come it tries so f,,,,,,n hard to look like a Harley Sportster

Mark Fulcher: Still rather have the Harley. Each to their own though

RICHARD HILL: My carbed 1200 sporty would eat that

Robert Johnston: Total bs! They where not even pushing that sportster. My 01 883 would go 0-70 in 4 sec

mike Thompson: whats the point harley davidson is not meant to race...they are meant to cruise...plus 883's arent menat to be fast anyway

Ben tentwentytwo: Lot of butt hurt HD owners trying to defend their archaic tractors. So what if someone's made a bike that looks like a sportster, not everyone wants to ride a chrome covered rattling bucket of bolts. May be HD should take the hint and start producing more efficient, more reliable bikes. 

Tavga Hawramy: YAMAHA BEEN A STRONG SELLER FOR LONG

windwardsun: worst comparison ever. older vs new . 883 vs 950 you wanna borrow my 1200 sporster 07 . 1000 miles . 

MrDirtBeard: bike A vs bike B.. just to see how the two compare. It isn't a 'which bike is better' comparison.

Tim Youngblood: Are you kidding me! That was not even a race.

Brian Anthony: Clearly the Hardly Davidson lost. They don't build good bikes. haha! Good Video

greg gehrke: What ever . Love how the japs are still trying to make there bikes look the sporty

Billy G.: Of course the Yamaha will win. Its against an 883. I don't know why HD makes it. Put it up with an older 1000 sportster, or even an older 900. I had a 72 1000 sporty that would rip asphalt, and concrete up from the road. The 2004, and up 1200 sportsters will take it too.

Donald Oberloh: Yeah. Ok

Russell Hopkins: Alll bark and no bite. Harleys new slogan.

Dallas Bruhn: I HAVE A 2012 SPORTSTER 1200C. I have beat every car and bike except a v-rod bike. the harley 883 must be a dog compared to the 1200

Jerry Wu: regardless, it depends mostly on gearing at low speeds. a GTR is slower than a doge neon from the starting line...

M Briggs: Now try a Sportster 1200 and see what happens.

brianreynolds188: Heck let's put it up against my vrod now I have the bigger engine duh

framfull: Better comare it with Yamaha R1. Crap anyway, nobody buy these bikes for drag racing.

Joe Frazier: my aprilia shriver 750 burn them both up

xarrow81: Why not race against the 1200? No one cares about the 883!

aoes16: I got a yamaha bolt and I eat these sportsters all day long, from a dead stop, or cruising on the freeway. These sportsters are over rated, yamaha has done a way better job on this bike.

Matt Groves: It always makes me laugh when people talk about how unreliable Harleys are. This isn't 1979, buddy. Even with a 20+ year old engine design, Sportsters will last as long as anything else on the road. Look it up and you might learn something. Also, Evo motors are notoriously easy to work on. I don't know what kind of mechanics you've been taught but clearly they are sub par. Maybe you should go to your local community college and take "This is a wrench" 101 lol.

albert person: I think the Harley street 750 would be a better comparison for the bolt. Makes almost(just short by a few hp and tq) the same power numbers with almost 200cc's LESS displacement.

Bubba Price: A better comparison would be to use the 2013 harley iron. Although the stock iron is pretty slow still I stuck 1200 kit on mine now it flys :) 

CrazyAlvis: HAHA My 750 Norton would eat all of these bikes!

SandBlast714: I wonder how it would hold up against the 1200 sporty

hobman: Nice riding gear....lol

HHUGGER .: compare bikes of the same year, for the test to be valid. It is the least that can be demanded.

poodlenuts: both are nice but should have tested with a newer sportster

rnv069: and gumby needs a parking block to do a burnout .... 

Randy Heim: this is the dumbest comparison ever…..
