It is a miracle to me that anyone outside of Honda and HD can afford to produce a line of motorcycles. Startup costs are high and the economic risk/profit ratio must be enormous. Surely the motorcycle industry, aside from the marquee names and pretenders to the throne, must be a tough sell to investors on paper. It's the classic passion vs. profit scenario. Thank goodness there are visionaries out there who are willing to take risks to produce cool motorcycles. Good luck Aprilia and MG!
