I think I'll give it another 10 or so years before I start thinking about those.

The stupid kid should have known better, the tall gearing and short wheelbase make it all about the launch, and he was no drag racer. old dude just dumped the clutch and went for it.

Old age and treachery, indeed.

Same here, esp. with fuel prices (at the pump) in the US still about half or less than much of the world, but I do find them interesting.

this one has the 110 mile range, clutchless one speed. One of them actually has a 6 speed. If they were closer to $5k it would be tempting

That wasn't a full quarter mile either. Back in the mid '80s, I had an old Suzuki GT 380 (in line 3 cylinder, 2 stroke) that would only do 105 mph but, it would get there in a city block. I used to smoke (pun intended) 1000 ninjas & interceptors in an eigth mile sprint. Those guys usually looked like they were gonna cry as well but, in a full quarter mile race they would have shoved my face in the mud & sodomized me.

I doubt the Harley rat bike would have been too impressive against any 1000cc in line four, in a full quarter mile sprint. I've never ridden a Harley before & I got to admit I was surprised the Harley did so well in the short run they did. I'm not Anti-Harley though, I'm just not into cruisers. I could deffinately see myself on an XR 1200 or a V-Rod if a good deal came my way.

Any of these two would do fine for today.
