I think this would sell well in California as a commuter if they keep the price down. Most of us ride less than 50 miles one way, and most employers offer charging stations for electric vehicles.

They've been saying that ever since electric cars were first talked about decades ago - and we haven't seen it yet. We've seen the technology go from lead-acid batteries to lithium ion batteries, but the capacity has not really increased that much in the past 100 years. Whether we like it or not there really is no viable replacement for the energy per gallon found in gasoline.

The only car maker that seems to be on the right track with batteries is Tesla Motors. They have a few models that can go well over 300 miles on a charge.

Anybody heard about this?


I read that as well.

4-6-8-10 wheels move the body, 2 wheels move the soul. No HD. My bike, a tent and a sleeping on a long ride makes me happy. The KTM seriously rocks🍻

I'm going to be 63 years old in Nov. and started riding in 1971.....so it will be 46 years next month. I've never owned a Harley, never wanted a Harley, and can say with 100% confidence, will NEVER own a Harley. I simply do not see the attraction to them and I have to say that they've never made one that i even remotely wanted.

This probably explains why......and is what interests me....




I'm a Lead Instructor for the largest Motorcycle Track Day company in the U.S. and spend many weekends teaching/ coaching folks how to ride on a race track like this one. NCM up in Bowling Green, KY.....

I have a 2017 road glide ultra and feel its a really fine bike ; however yamaha is just coming out with the new everything 2018 star venture touring bike and it kicks azz. I'm going to have it!!!! These kinds of bikes are great for just cruising and enjoying the open road which is what I'm doing right now in the west. For the old buzzards that poopoo harley they are talking from old school thoughts. Not one of them has ridden one with the m8 motor and new suspension. My racing days are way gone and sleeping on the ground is way way gone . Boomers rule cuz millennials wont have squat
