The Vintage is a big motorcycle, but even with 753 pounds (dry) to move around, the 105 c.i. PowerPlus engine does a good job managing the mass. By the way, that rigidly-mounted engine uses no counterbalancers, so get used the sensation of vibration. Fuel economy isn’t listed anywhere but I get the feeling it’s probably in the mid 30’s; with a 5.5 gallon fuel tank, hitting the 200 mile range may be difficult. I didn’t get to spend my usual 1000 miles on this bad boy, but in my short time, I found it corners well, with respectable lean angles. Slow-speed handling felt sluggish—no doubt due to the relaxed 34-degree rake—but the floating-rotor, dual-caliper Brembo brakes up front were respectably firm and responsive. The clutch was a real workout on the Vintage, but all the controls are where you’d expect, right up to the center console knob. The six-speed transmission offers a comfortable rpm at freeway speeds with no surprises and no letdowns (except maybe for the persistent vibes). The large (and easily detachable) windscreen did its job nicely. With its whitewall tires and fabulous fit and finish, this bike really is the pinnacle of modern vintage, from the fringed leather quick-release saddlebags and massive teardrop headlamp, to the intricate Indian head fender ornament. Wearing a classic police motorcycle jacket is mandatory, though a passenger pillion is optional.
