I have Rush 2.0. Sounds great at idle. Is very impressive when I crank it, but is respectable when cruising without over stimulating my ears.
I can tiptoe past a black and white without worry. And the neighbors don't complain (unless I crank it) And they dont really complain anyway.
And I already have tinnitus from aprin/meds problem. So I want to protect my hearing which is still very good. But I want the bike to sound like a Harley is supposed to.
I don't consider the 2.0 a compromise, but more like EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED.
That was me 40 years ago
