Not really my type of bike, but I really liked the look of it.
Indian Scout

Watercooled 1130cc V-twin with 6 speed gearbox, and priced in the UK at a reasonable £10,339.
More details on the British importer's website.
Needless to say, there are plenty of 'bolt on goodies' available for it.
An interesting addition to the 'big cruiser' market, and MUCH cooler than a Harley-Davidson!

2015 Aprilia Caponord 1200 Rally

Saw reviews of this online and really liked the look of it. Love the way that everything seems to 'flow' and fit together well.
Loads of electronic technology as well!
