Complimentary partnership. Doubt it will result in any new motorcycle models though. Win Win thing.

Better make sure that beast is dead before you try to bury it...



I'm no Harley fan but they still generate more profit in a week than Polaris and KTM combined do in a year.

Yep I am sure Harley is worried about a niche bike like a Buell competitor .... Not like the big 4 have any bikes like that. Like someone said this has to do more with ATVs and snowmobiles than motorcycles

"Another nail in Harley's coffin ... "



That would make one.



If it was.



And it isn't.

Hey I rode a total of 75 miles last weekend..All of beautiful curvy everygreen lined roads... 1 mile in WA = 100 miles in Chicago, MN, WI, TX, etc... I think longride practices turns on cloverleafs...

First one was their failure to buy the Indian name ... Could have spawned a whole new line of bikes based on the watercooled V-ROD engine ... this was the second big blunder.... Buells could have been competitive with any sportbike in the world. Oh, I'm sure they'll remain profitable for a good while yet, but their best days are behind them unless they remove their heads from their anal fundament.

I am torn. I own Ski-Doo and KTM. The good news is I will have a dealer 20 minutes from my house. The nearest decent KTM dealer is over an hour in the direction I never go. With a dealer that close the 9fiddy might get a spot in the garage as long as they don't go tribal with the paint.
