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.
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.
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.
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 I know harleys are outdated in their design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
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.
Thrillcekr: Yamaha has a bigger engine and costs more. What exactly got proven there?
JACKSONLEWISOFCANADA: you mean an engine with almost 100cc more power won? wow thats
surprising!!!!! NOT!!!!!!!!! this point of this video is really to be
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.
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.
Oscar V: hmm....I think I'll buy the Bolt
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
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.
roundingcorners: let's do a drag race and forgo proper riding equipment from the waist down.
. . typical cruiser mentality.
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!!
Robert Johnston: Total bs! They where not even pushing that sportster. My 01 883 would go
0-70 in 4 sec
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.
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.
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
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
RICHARD HILL: My carbed 1200 sporty would eat that
Tavga Hawramy: YAMAHA BEEN A STRONG SELLER FOR LONG
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.
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
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.
Johnnie Smith: The Yamaha looks flimsy compared to the Harley, we all know the Japs love
plastic. Everyone has their own preference, safety should be everyones
first priority not how fast you are compared to other riders.
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.
Kannan Muthuraja: iron 883 the legend forever,no bike can grab those rep it has
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?
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
geoff carl: Please stop what you're doing and never do it again.
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.
Matt Drake: Bolt Vs 883ci Sporty. How about Bolt Vs 1200 Sporty
brad hager: what kind of windshield is on that bolt?
Mark Fulcher: Still rather have the Harley. Each to their own though
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 .
edgar4973: efi vs carbs? 13 years difference. why people want to beat Harley? why
these bikes look like Harleys? sound like Harley? and why year after year
all the motorcycle brands compare them self to Harley? and the comparison
is always on older Harleys and lower horsepower than the motorcycle they
bring is like a 21 years old person with 165lbs vs a 35 years old and
235lbs. who will win??? sr you have a mosquito brain. nice vid!
MrDirtBeard: bike A vs bike B.. just to see how the two compare. It isn't a 'which bike
is better' comparison.
Daniel Graham: okay I bought an '06 883 cuz it was what I want to ride.-it's never given
me any problems and I hang all kinds of silly decorations on
it--windshield,pipes ugly pegs etc. It does not leak oil unless I open it
wide then it blows by the umbrella valves--- Pos Crnkcse Ventilation---and
yes this year I am tappin it out cuz I want to!!! So I hope you bought the
bike you liked and are having as much fun as I am having with mine---what
the f*&^k is wrong with you sphinctors???
Graham Monette: Wow, didn't see that one coming, is there ANYTHING a Harley can do better
then any other bike? asides from make copious amounts of noise and shake
itself apart while burning oil since new? I think not
Enarro54: How do you compare an 883 "carburetor" that is like a 1995 model vs a brand
new fuel injected bolt?!?! Of course the bolt will win. He says their both
new just because of the low miles haha. I want to see a brand new 883 vs a
brand new bolt same year! My fuel injected 883 smokes my friends 1994
carbed 883 waaay worse than this bolt did. And yet sooo many people will
give the japs money cuz of this little stunt instead of keeping it in the
good ol USA.
greg gehrke: What ever . Love how the japs are still trying to make there bikes look
Donald Oberloh: Yeah. Ok
Ignacio Martinez: Harley Davidson 1200 custom vs Bolt?????
Jerry Wu: regardless, it depends mostly on gearing at low speeds. a GTR is slower
than a doge neon from the starting line...
Raul E. Menjivar: I think the choice of a bike should reflect on the intention of what you
need it for. A Harley is a Harley and will never loose it's reputation.
But, despite that Yamaha copies their style, their price and reliability is
pretty good. At the end of the day it's who is going to give you more gas
Pro Caliber Motorsports Vancouver: 2014 Yamaha #bolt vs #harleydavidson #883. Watch and decide, then get into
#procalibermotor #vancouver for yours. http://ow.ly/nCnFP
M Briggs: Now try a Sportster 1200 and see what happens.
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.
brianreynolds188: Heck let's put it up against my vrod now I have the bigger engine duh
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
