Default Re: American company to fly soon

Where have you been looking? Was it local ads, craigslist, cycletrader or something else?



I haven't seen anything listed on craigslist and cycletrader seems to have mostly new bikes from Hysosung.



Just wondering.

Hyosung used an importer called Alpha Sport for a while. Then Hyosung figured they could set up shop and import the stuff themselves. They along with Fischer are at the Indy dealer show. I just hope you guys will give Fischer a break. I started my m/c insurance agency with NO money and now have he highest "earned premium" m/c insurance agency in GA. Took me 5 years but no one can claim they sell more than me. Fischer will survive with good marketing and patients. Just give 'em a chance.

Default American? company to fly soon

Looks more like a reason to be proud if you are Korean, but then Buells are not without international contributions, either. Ditto for the V-Rod "Family" from HD. Not that there's anything wrong with not being American. Everybody needs a job (including Americans).

HD suppliers are all over the world. Buell out-sources almost every part of the bike. Victory does the same. Automakers are no different. The Fischer guys saw an opportunity to out-source a hard to R&D part then so be it. The rest of the bike was engineered here. I'm sure that if a proper motor could have been supplied at a price that worked for Fischer's format they would've bought American. The question is will they have a properly back warranty?

Default Torquey American? motocycle to fly apart soon...

Wedging a 125 CID S&S into that light frame would be inovative, and American, I think?

Just kidding.
