Re: I have heard...

Well that's basic marketing... ya can't announce a new modern watercooled twin a year before you release it because you'll kill sales of your existing bikes.

Re: I have heard...

I think i f you go back & listen to / read Eriks comments there is no "bashing" & he's not saying anything that isn't true, he just talks about some of the areas where air cooling has legitimate advantages... simplicity, light weight, etc

he doesn't sell a watercooled motor so he doesn't talk about a water cooled motor

once again, it's called marketing

Re: Predictions from the Great One

With roughly 50% of Buell's sales in Europe the continued fall of the "American peso" should help grow export sales...

meanwhile back in America with gas prices at $8 a gallon the 70 mpg Buell Blast will become the ride of choice for both former sportbikers and ex cellphone-yapping-fatass-SUV drivers
