Looks like a merger with Ducati.

I can hear it now. This is proof Harley is going under.

it is a good move, as long as they add to their offerings and don't start taking away like getting rid of the dyna. I wanted a adventure bike and was waiting for the new BMW this next year that goes up another 15 horsepower to 140HP. But I might wait for this. Hopefully they gave it enough power and didn't market it like the Honda African twin. I am a big guy and want the power like BMW. Come on Harley, It says possibly a 1250 motor, man I would love if It was similar to the Vrod motor in that thing.

I am not understanding all the smart move comments on this one either. This market has well established bikes from BMW and the all the Japanese manufactures. So to break into this market would be tough.
It has to be priced right to sell ......

Good for them for branching out with motorcycle offerings and away from their traditional customer base.

Good luck to them for it as well. God knows it's a steep uphill battle considering their traditional HD owners.

Quite frankly, sales are dropping, midas well try to build a new customer base. Tear the band-aid off, just don't half-*** the effort HD...

"The engine is an all-new modular, with a 1250cc capacity, DOHC heads, and what looks like a 60 V-angle."

​​​​Possible new Sportster engine?
