[edit]

I don't understand the advertisement header. The claim appears to be that this article is WP:NEU. It reads to me as mostly a collection of facts about the models and released dates, which in inherently neutral. What are other peoples thoughts on this matter? War (talk) 11:21, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

I agree 100%. I do not understand the advertisement header. Joema (talk) 00:01, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

I totally agree. This are little more than published statistics and differences between the models. Απόλλων (talk) 14:43, 02 December 2009

The basic issue is that the content is written from the point of view of a Harley enthusiast, or someone who sells Harleys. It takes the tone that Harleys are the only motorcycles in the universe, and follows their development entirely in terms of comparison of the VRSC with other Harleys. For example, a neutral writer would describe the placement of the fuel under the seat and the use of a dummy tank as something done earlier on the Honda Gold Wing. Calling it a "power cruiser" instead of just a cruiser is advertising-speak. The remedy for these problems, and others, is to sit down with independent sources and write the article to reflect what those sources say.--Dbratland (talk) 21:54, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
