"The government views motorcycles as underpowered, cheap, polluting machines that clog traffic and endanger others."

-The power-to-weight ratio of most motorcycles is superior to pretty much all other forms of transportation.

-They're cheap only if made that way. Maybe they don't get to see many quality bikes?

-Polluting compared to what? Pedestrians and bicycles, yes. Cars, trucks, buses... no. Unless you're only seeing poorly tuned two-stroke bikes belching smoke, of course. Maybe there's more of them in the mix than in other countries?

-Clog traffic compared to what? Same as previous point.

-Endanger others? Puh-leeze! Ridden responsibly, I'd say motorcycles have a lot less potential for harming others (besides the pilot) than most forms of motorized conveyance.

My conclusion is the Chinese government may very well have it's scalp bumping up underneath it's colon. They're repressive enough, at any rate.

Harley has got to have some kind of angle or deal to sweeten the venture. On the surface, it just doesn't sound like a good gamble.
