Did this video help you?

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 

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.

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

shaun perriera: That Yamaha gets on it but I still love my 883

D. Allen Martin: What made Harley an icon was that it was cheap and easy to chop / modify when guys were coming back from Nam and getting together to ride stateside. Half (or more) of the bike manufacturers today didn't even exist then, or their products were not available in the US at least. People think Harley is "the crap" just because they don't understand what MADE Harleys what they were, which they no longer ARE. Learn some history of bikes in the late 60's early 70's. Most guys I know who've owned a Harley have cussed them more than they've ridden them because they cost so much and yet spend so much time in the shop. If you wanna ride a Harley, fine, go for it... Just get off your high horses about those of us who ride something else. there is SUPPOSED to be a brotherhood among riders, not just among Harley owners. A nice ride is a nice ride, and the brand name only means something to trendies who wanna show off the size of their wallets.

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

world traveler: now run the 1200 sportster

J. Prentice Parton: Useless comparison. 

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.

menom7: Gee,a HARLEY Losing to a motorcycle that actually knows what it's DOING in terms of reliability,design,price,etc.??? Whatta Shocker!!!! Oh,and BTW...........water is WET too!!! LOL.

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!

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

edgar4973: lets compare a bicycle against a ducati MORON, anyway, i bet the resale price after t 200 miles is 50% off a Harley is 10% off after 200 miles

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.

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

GDepics: I don't know about this video, why don't we get an 883 that was built the same year as that bolt? That HD is carb'd, and the bolt is most likely efi. This...was not a good match at all.

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.

Stan Z: japan makes the best v-twins

Mike Brink: people please do some research some harleys are made in usa, but harley SOLD OUT tons of parts and whole bikes are made out side usa. Just like we have toyota honda yamaha nissan mistubishi ect..factorys here in usa they SOLD IN they pay american workers to build cars/bikes here in usa, while harley SOLD OUT if harley is so die hard american, then all bikes and harley products would be made in usa. they are LIARS coz they try to get u to buy into the made in usa idea. that idea was right in the 60's & 70"s but things have changed and Harley fans are in denial. So next time you see a guy on a new honda don't turn your nose up at them and think they are a traitor, coz that honda was probably made here in USA by an american, where as little do u know 3/4 of your harley was made in Taiwan. Do some research so u don't look like an idiot. 

Jam Ward: WTF was that? the rear of a strip mall. maybe 700 feet?? take them out on the road least 1/8 mile, 1/4 is better

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

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

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

brock12003: As far as I know the only two bike companies that are actually all USA are Victory and Indian. 

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

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.

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).

Mike Brink: People still stupidly argue about the whole harley davidson USA #1 we are the best BS. The fact is lots of Harley parts are made in other countries, shipped here, then assembled in USA. Buell says american motorcycles in big letters on the gas tank trying to get u to buy one, but take off the gas cap and underneath it says- made in Tiawan. that is 100% fact. Same with the "rice burners" -oh you're a fag-traitor if you ride honda or yamaha this might have been true in the 60's 70's before there were yamaha honda suzuki kawasaki mitsubishi etc..factories all over USA. Now there are tons of jap factories in USA that pay USA workers good money. I bought a used buell & when I seen the made in tiawan on the gas cap, I took off the big american motorcycles sticker on the tank. People should know what they are talking about before their mouth opens coz it makes them look like a poser-fag wannabe biker. I see a lot of what I call Harley posers, wannabees, and snobs, they have never rode a motorcycle before, go buy a harley and a t-shirt and try to pretend they are a biker & have been riding for years & think they are better than any honda riding non "biker". what makes a biker? Just coz ur a fat ass with a beard, leather jacket/vest, & nicknamed pork chop does not make u a biker. Multiple moto gp champion Valentino Rossi is way more of a biker than most people could be in a life time. If anything Harley Davidson co. are the sellout liars, still using the made in USA angle to sell bikes, when in fact they sold out and have parts made all over the world like a new plant in India, not Indiana India. Please do some research before u think your'e better than a "jap" bike rider. I own a buell and a yamaha I guess that makes me a sellout and not a true biker.

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!

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

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!!!!!!

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

harleyhooligan: Still gay as aids!! Gook-cycles

brock12003: I'm so done with crap Harley. they produce junk. They had their time and place, but it's over. Parts manufactured overseas, Yamaha probably creates more jobs in the USA these days. Japan has been an ally for 60 years get over it.

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 :-)

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.

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.

Stan Z: I say to all you bikers RIDE WHAT YOU LIKE AND BE HAPPY FOR ME HARLEY IS NOT MY CUP OF TEA HAVE A GOOD DAY

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. 

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

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 . 

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

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.

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!

Jrmcmlln: Smoked that Harley's ass! 

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

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

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 .
