Whether this particular doc is fake or not is besides the point. H-D will come up with a bigger engine. Why? Because 1450cc is not cutting it any more. You have to be pretty ignorant of today´s cruiser market to regard it anything but a middle weighter.
2,450cc! Thats stupid. So is the 2000cc V twin, (Suzuki?) or the 2300cc Triumph. I just do not see any reason for a motorcycle engine to be that large. If people want then, fine but I don't see the point. You can go 190 with 1300cc!
