Interesting... a little bit too much RC51, MV Agusta and Ducati 916 / 996 in there though. Maybe it's just me.

I wish them success.

To make it "all-american". Oh what ... where was that motor designed? Where's it made? Where are a majority of the parts sourced? Ah, forget it!

It's better to have loved and lost than live with the psycho for life!

Ahhhhh makes sense. I rode one of those for the first time a month or so ago and it pulls reasonably well for a Harley.

If I remember correctly the price was low to mid $40k. Motorcyclist magazine did a test ride aboard one in this months issue. It amazed me how light they were able to keep the machine using the HD powerplant.

I too was wondering about the weight issue with that power-plant.

She's fat for a sportbike, the new Gixer 1k only weights 380 dry. i do appreciate the 520 chain, Olins, Brembo brakes, & Marchesini rims etc.; however with only 3.5 gal fuel capcity you'll be fueling it up quite frequently.

and for 50k... i'll pass.

Motorcyclist claims a price tag of $50k and complained a bit of suspension problems that supposedly will be fixed in the production model.

Raises a question, though. Why the heck isn't Buell using the V-Rod engine? Seems like a perfect move for an engine that's largely ignored by the Harley audience.

I'm not fat, I'm big boned. Besides, you would just be that much more frustrated when I passed you on a H-D/Porsche w/ no frame.
