    I doubt it will sell to current Harley owners but Harley really need to break away from their current buyer demographic because younger riders aren't buying them (in volume).

    I have to say it's a much better looking bike than the Zero (it remains to be seen if it's a better bike to ride though).

  13. In Japan, electric cars have to have sound added to them for pedestrian safety. We discussed this a couple of years back on a noise thread. So some noise is a good thing.

    I do wonder what the gun is for.

  16. Safety feature. Car drivers will perceive you as a threat (eventually, once they hear about a few people getting shot for smidsy).

    I am a big fan of the clip on indicator/mirrors. Anybody know where something similar can be bought?
