I say, go for the rotary - even solitary Soup Ape's need a job.............

Suzuki RE-5? no that wasn't a flop at all.... neither was the Norton Commander...

Why is it that nobody has tried a V6 in a bike? If they can try a flat six, and an inline six, then the V6 sould be cake. I bet it would make a nice motor configuration for a bike.

I think sticking with the cruisers and branching off into a Sport Touring line would work.

With thoughts like that, no wonder you are in the boiler business! :)

I believe it's because the problem is uneven firing-orders = weird vibes, and even "tuned" V-6's sound like crap.

Yes, they do. Nyah nyah nyah.

I've heard those V-6 Mustangs and Prowlers with loud exhausts. They really do suck. So there.

They should fit Wright R-1830s into cars. Now that would sound great! Especially if they kept the black powder starters. Yeeehaw!
