I guess I am a nutwit, but this machine would interest me a lot more with a Hayabusa engine in it

I still think they need a leaning version if they want to appeal to motorcycle enthusiasts...

I read somewhere they applied for a patent along the lines of the piaggio three wheeled scooter. If so I would like to try it.

These things just don't appeal to me.

It has the worst compromises of a car and motorcycle.

An enclosed bubble that leans would be better than a wide, open air rig that doesn't.

That's Great. But does it come in a Hybrid-electric?

A friend of mine has one of those, he's past 70 and feels more comfortable riding it than his Wide Glide, I think they're pretty cool myself and a viable alternative to a regular bike.

Harley has some patents on a leaning trike with this configuration. Looks pretty cool too.
