I'd love to own one of these but I doubt the necessary improvements in battery techology will happen before I get to damned old. Imagine a 385 lb. bike with 175 hp, even more torque and a 300 mile range.

I hate people. No clutch..........right. Plug the fucking hole in the housing so it doesn't look like halfass shit on your concept. It's the little things.

I would totally rock this. Imagine the gas savings with this thing. I could ride to and from work for two days before having to recharge and then I could plug in at work and charge it on Mama DeCo's bill. Saaawweeet.... And Skipper geez little nit picky aren't ya? its a prototype model not for showroom. they just took the handle bar set from a dyna or a sporty and just slapped it on there. They are right now concerned with getting the thing trouble shot for bugs and getting ready for development. Relax, bro... You mad, bro?

I think its awesome. Harley should have done this style bike in a regular exploding motor years ago
