anyone heard of any HD techs being sent for training lately?

I mean yes, HD can keep it under wraps for a while, but water cooled CVO's would require a bit of training and as of yet nothing
Harley mechanics are trained? when did they start that?

Bunch of trolls. I knew the stories were true. Too many bridges for there not to be trolls.

I heard they are putting in diesels. They wanted quieter motors.

I heard they'll just hire Honda techs

When HD hired Porsche to help with the 1st design...didn't they come up with a V-twin and a V-4 engine? I believe they were water cooled. Sorta fugly. The V Rod was the end results after Willy G. redesigned the Porsche frame and body and the engine appearance. So if HD wanted to they have everything but money to make it happen. I don't think the stock holders will be willing to spend their dividends on a completely new engine, again. V Rod engine was a failure as far as money in, money out. And also, will the bagger nation buy them? At any cost. I don't think the V Rod engine has enough juice in it for the high torque baggers folks.

Maybe, but the OP heard it from Yorktown.

I heard liquid cooled 500 cc entry level bike I wish my bike was liquid cooled as hot as it runs. The temps are dropping up here so it's not as bad now.

I believe it is getting pretty deep in here and my riding boots are in serious danger of being overflowed with it!
