Did this video help you?

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

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 The Hardly is built for obese amerikan men that ride the countryside with their boyfriends while they rev their outdated loud engines at every red light.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.

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...

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

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

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

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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

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!

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).

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

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

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....

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!

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

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. 

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.

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!!!!

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. 

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.

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 .

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

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.....

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..

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

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

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!!

Alex o: hmm....I think I'll buy the Bolt

Ivan Flores: Just like the video

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.

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

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."

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.

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.

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

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

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 

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 :-)

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.

nick coke: Great game , but the reputation and alignment system is messed up. Any normal gamer playing this game for the first time will almost always get the evil ending with out using guides. You pretty much have to save state before each town capture ( or restart the whole level on consoles ) and never use your main hero after once you get his alignment high enough.
Kirk Heideman: I think they upgraded the handle since you posted this video, the one I got has a rubber wrapped handle like their drills.
