Pavement. Asphalt. Concrete. Blacktop. You name it, the Roadster was made for it. Light the wick on this one, and you experience old-school muscle, pure and simple. The bottomless pit of torque pouring out of the 1200cc overhead valve V-Twin hits as deliciously hard as it did on racetracks a half century ago. Better in fact, thanks to high-compression, high-flow heads, performance cams and vibration-isolation rubber mounts. You get a wide handlebar and Silver, 13-spoke wheels that would make the '57 original proud. And a two-up seat, in case anyone wants to tag along as you sample the big buffet of road surfaces across this fine country.
