Whatever your opinion of HD, this bike looks spectacular.

Good looking bike, but it is still a Hardley Davidson.

I wish they'd tell us more details about the bike. Even as an HD intern they won't tell me or the other employees much about the technical details.

I think the bike looks good except the stupid rear fender and lack of a brake disk up front. We all know this bike will be faster than any other HD yet they decided to only run one disk up front. Dumb

I guess this bike will be brought around the country to different dealerships where you can ride it, and I really want to do that. I also wish solid plans were in place to sell it. I doubt this will ever be much more than a publicity bike.

I saw this leaked early this week and am really curious who they are aiming it towards. Look at the footpeg placement. Every other HD bike with "traditional" footpeg placement (street rod, all Buells etc) get quickly dropped out of HD's line up.

No info on regenereative braking yet. When I rode a Brammo, that was the strangest feeling of closing the throttle and having no effect on speed. Regenerative braking also allows longer range.

Not too shabby for HD, and an electric. But it looks too plasticy and "Made in China". (hehe, go figure!)

Do you think they will put in a vibrator for the "H.D." v-twin expirience?

The difference is, we know it. Honda doesn't claim to be Made in USA. Yamaha fans don't go around saying they buy American. etc etc...

Compared to most of the electric bike concepts that have surfaced this is definitely one of the better looking ones. Will HD's fanbase agree? It's a stretch but time will tell if this actually goes to production.

if it sounded like that i think it would be cool, how much extra noises would you think the rider will pick up? enough to say to the other harley guys "loud pipes no longer will save lives" so just speed away and wear gear
