Prolly 'cuz SVs don't make much money. Harley is smart enough to make bikes that rake in big profits.



Come on, where are the Harley haters? Already four posts and not one denouncing Harley for being an evil empire tricking lawyers and accountants into buying vibrating, oil leaking inferior air-cooled, pushrod engined motorcycles with incredibly low price/performance ratios.

Re: Another Record? Buy a 57 Chevy and make me happy.

What kind of R&D are you talking about? The completely new engine HD came out with in 1998/99? The constant small, actually functional improvements they make every year?

You must forget that Japanese companies, with the exception of full-on sportbikes and full-on non-80-class MX bikes, don't do that much actual R&D, especially on new engines. Jesus, I mean look how long Honda's been making the XR and Shadow lines without any changes. Both of those lines have been unchanged far longer than any HD model.
