Did this video help you?

iniakpmarc28: Just proves how slow Harleys are. The brakes and handling are crap too. If it wasn't for the badge on the tank, no one would buy them. They are ad mans dream though. (And before you ask, I've owned two Harleys, both were crap).

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

Matt Dennis: I was horrified when I notice the one rider wearing slippers. Anyone who knows anything about riding a motorcycle knows you wear boots that cover your ankles. And if a person is thinks this is not important, at least tuck in your shoe laces. Shoe laces have gotten caught in moving parts.

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!

Jim Kallay: It is the fact that Yamaha represents the country of Japan. Remember, they are the ones that sucker punched us on December 7 1941? Piece of crap cowards in my opinion. And if you buy one then you are a traitor to your flag, Old Glory. That's the one we fly in our front yard because we are proud and support our country to the end. Right? I pledge allegiance to the flag! Buy American and support our Nation or get out!

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

J Martin: NO SURPRISE THERE.... Yamaha was a sure bet. Harley is not built for speed.... "Harley Davidson" is just a flashy name. I have a "SLOW BONE STOCK" Honda MSX 125 and it gets 100 miles per gallon {or in metric numbers burns 2.3 Liters per 100 km}. The only race mine "might" win is a "fuel ration endurance race" with rules like >>> Racers, Here are your ONE gallon rations of gas each to add to empty [completely drained] tanks. Whoever goes the farthest on this ONE gallon of gas wins...take your time...and remember, "this race is for distance" >>> NOT SPEED <<< That is probably the only type of 'Race' my slow-bone-stock Honda MSX 125cc Grom could ever possibly win . 

HeavyHitter5150: BOTH of these bikes are lame! The 883 is simply pathetic! And the Bolt? Smeh!

Doug Elick: Was there ever any question? My little Vulcan 500 LTD can take a stock 883. Is straight line speed what riding is about? Nah. Ride what ya got.

Richard Knight: I really dig how many people bash the crap out of Harley's but yet the gooks didn't know what a freaking V-Twin was until Harley sales went through the ceiling after the introduction of the 80 C.U. EVO... Go check out how many Harley's are shipped to Japan now, they don't even want to ride there own crap! LOL

Chris Millman: 2-1 Exhaust and a slightly bigger and newer engine... Of course the Yamaha is faster. My Victory eats them both as an appetizer and then follows it up with every other Harley for a 27 course meal... I never bought my motorcycle because it went fast though. These are both good starter bikes.

Jessie Kemp: Bolt resale value 3 years from now $2500 if your lucky Harley 883 $6k humm which one do I want?

Paulus ROSSINI: I don't like either bike,......

Tom Anjing: "Ledgendary"? Careful how you use words. The 883 is a ladies sportster. its never been a "legend".

GeorgeBonez: Why drag race these two bikes? Are either of them built for speed? nnnnNOPE! I don't get-it? I cant stand the HD 883's or the Bolt but the Bolt looks ridiculous so what's the point ? "Hey dude your bike is more pathetic than mine na nanna naa naaaaa???" Is that it? Like I said, I don't get the point of this vid...

T Quila: I dont, not like either. I love HD and I love Yammis, I have a 2008 HD fatboy 96ci, and a 2004 Yamaha Road Star 102ci, To me a Harley is a Harley and a Yammi is a Yammi. They both have 2 wheels. Sometimes I do wonder why in 2004 Yammi came out with a 102ci engine (stock) when Harley waited until 2013... I do have to say that personally, I prefer riding the Road Star...but thats me... Its not what you ride. Its that you ride.

George McKean: The Hardly Davisin is amerikan built, and is inferior. The Hardly is built for obese amerikan men that ride the countryside with their boyfriends while they rev their outdated loud engines at every red light. The Yamaha is built for real men, masculine men, and so it has reliability, more horsepower, and is not purchased by the fem-men of the colonies. Yamahas, as well as most other motorcycles are built to last. Hardly Davisins are built to rev up at red lights, making excessive noise, for men who sleep with other men.

dave rodkey: Just another of the nonstop "Highschool Harry" Jap knockoffs of Harley Davidson... I'll stick with the REAL Harley.

Simon Parry-Jones: I know which I'd still have, residual values on the bolt are disappointing to say the least, the Harley 883 sportster is merely the canvas on which to start your relationship, the Bolt is what the bolt started out with. Its not about drag racing, its about posing and cruisin, the Bolt is just a box of bolts (see what I did there?) the Harley has a soul dudes and dudettes!

Stan Z: Harleys suck I Harleys are ugly slow boat anchors what a waste of money all Harley guys are is image bullcrap. for the price of a Harley you can get 2 import bikes and have some money in the bank

Matt Williams: freaking stock 883 slow yes try a built 1200 or maybe my buell will smoke most jap crap bikes 

Smoke Signals: The guy on the sportster can't ride for crap. Embarrassing the HD name.

Ed boisvert: hmmmm a 2001 harley 883 is brand new.. interesting.. how about a NEW fuel injected 883 bored out to a 950. this race showes an apple vs an orange. these bikes are not similar at all lol 

Melissa Black: shame on the publisher of this video.. this is just in your face propegander and a money deal,thats all it is.pointless video,but then again there are alot of sheep out there!!!!!!

J. Prentice Parton: Useless comparison. 

1damnnut: maybe you need a better rider on the iron ?

REM44MAG: Difference is bran new yamaha has the harley beat on performance hands down. Harley however will hold its value longer, easier to find engine upgrades, and which with upgrades will out muscle the yamaha. I find it a lot easier to find someone to work on a Harley than to work on a jap bike. But the japanese bike will probably last longer. Not vibrate every nut and bolt off the thing, but vibration on a harley is part of the experience... Harley still wins hands down by the experience it gives alone, nothing beats that Harley rumble. If yamaha wants to really compete they need to build an FXR copy, only with a bitchin motor and good performing suspension and brakes. BUILD IT YAMAHA.

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!!!!

harleyhooligan: Still gay as aids!! Gook-cycles

Jrmcmlln: Smoked that Harley's ass! 

mopar340dave: Wow, an old smaller bike got edged out in a short drag race by a new bigger bike that is also a blatant rip-off fake Rolex ......lol.....that's great. Thanks.

Peter Bond: Yamaha is crap anyway...

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

Pedro Henrique Pestana Felippe: man, i dont want a bolt... I NEED THAT crap

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.

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 .

PeterDad60: Bolt has a bigger engine. Sportster has bigger following and handles better.

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 :-)

john endsley: A 2001 the ecm on the 883 we it did not have one the 883 did not get fuel injectors till 2008 miles don't matter. Tec matters....

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.

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. 

fivefootsixtriumph: 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. 

Charles Ellsworth: HDs won the AMA races this year......howya like that?!

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.

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.

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.

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

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. 

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!

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.....
