Has anyone any hands-on experience with one of their bikes? They look trick, but a picture can be misleading...

Swedish powerplants = big bucks for parts. I looked at the Highland website, and they just had a clutch side shot of the singe, with nothing other than "Legendary power wrapped in a light weight package"

Legendary? For what? Collecting dust at some warehouse in Vasby? No mention of valve config, lower end, oiling system, etc.

Good luck. Not a good time to be launching a new line of Motorcycles.
