If a harley can do it, an airhead can too. Go gadget go.
Sales reports through the first 3 quarters of 2012.... http://www.prnewswire.com/news-rele...quarter-and-nine-month-results-175379331.html
"Retail Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Sales
Through nine months, retail sales of new Harley-Davidson motorcycles grew 6.0 percent overall, 6.2 percent in the U.S. and 5.4 percent internationally compared to the year-ago period."
Like it or not, HD and their demographic, isnt going away anytime in the near future.
I'm still a bit chapped about how they did Erik Buell. Poor guy can't even use his name anymore.
I thought he was selling race bikes under his name?
Well, yeah, Erik Buell Racing. It's just that H-D owns and won't let go of the "Buell" name. At least, that's the way I understand it.
But, on the other hand, he can do whatever he wants now without H-D getting involved.
Yeah, I keep hoping he'll get involved with motus.
Why? Do you want him to fail?
The Motus project is... interesting. Even if price were no object, I don't think I'd ever want one.
The bronze 110th Anniversary Road King looks classy to me.
My favorite HD right now is the V-Rod, because I'm not really into cruisers. I heard one the other day with Supertrapp exhaust that sounded amazing. To me, that is as far into the sportbike market as HD needs to go to get my attention. I'm 40, ride a supermoto, and could easily see myself on this machine:
If Buell were involved in it, he could probably use his connections and experience to help them develop a product line with more than cult appeal, and at less than an occult price.
Hmmm -- interesting statements.
I guess you have a different definition for "cult appeal" than I do. EBRs initial bikes for sale had a base price of 40K, although the new production line has a target retail of around 25K.
I'd love Erik to build a SPORT touring bike around one of those Rotax V-Twins.
I think the motus has little more than cult appeal, partially due to price. Ebr could help with that, I think.
It looks like what I was hoping to see in the 2014 model year has been pushed back to 2015.
So... what were you wanting to see?
I am thinking that the water cooled heads and the reverse trike (that leans) have been bumped back a year.
Ah. Yes. I want those, too.
A couple of really nice FXR's there, one running a twincam?? Cool!
I want a freakin' water cooled tour bike so bad!!! That is my only gripe about my Road King in Texas. Too freakin' hot!!!
get a mp3 ? it has storage, and isn't trying to be anything but fun.
