I've never even heard of Delaware American Motors, though the "propriatory Apex design" 140 ci S & S V-Twin motor gives me a pretty good idea where they're at. So another clone maker gets aquired... big surprise there..

Referring back to the Zero thread- High end, high dollar bike that will be rarely ridden by their owners. Brilliant!
Let Honda or Suzuki deliver an $11,000 version of this technology and we're cookin'. But RUBs won't buy it and if they do they'll just look silly to their friends.
Make a Hybrid Goldwing or a KLR and you'll sell tens of thousands. Hybrid Chopper- you'll sell a few hundred as novelty items.

I can't agree. I don't think there would be much market for 700lb KLRs and 1200lb Goldwings..... well, maybe the Goldwings.

I wouldn't with today's technology. But in 5-10yrs when things become lighter and better engineered and the dry weights can stay as they are currently- would you?

"a drive-train design that uses three separate motors to maximize fuel efficiency"

Man, I bet that's gonna look goooood...

What do you bet it'll be a "fully faired" sickle?

Here's a question... Why hasn't anyone made an electric bike and called it a Hummer? Other than the trademark issue. Maybe the Chinese will make one and call it a HumJob.
