Cool!

Now, all those guys are going to run out and sell their I-4s and buy that great American sportbike like they all promised, right?

I was all ready to do that and then I found out that it was built by Rotax and I backed out. I mean, can't the Americans build a proper motor?

I think the new Buell made it on the top of my list of bikes I would never own. What an accomplishment!

It's cool to see a potentially competitive sportbike from an American manufacturer, even if it has a sourced engine. It's the Global Economy, and it isn't going away.

Why would we build a proper motor? I thought the rule of the day was Outsource, outsource, outsource. We should be looking to India for a proper motor.
