    That's pretty much the end of Harley-Davidson. They would be really foolish to implement this plan.

    I read about that a few days ago. I just shook my head. I guess they are depending on the younger folks to cling onto that product offering because they know the boomers and older are not wanting it.

    I still can't picture a bunch of riders heading to Sturgis waiting on their bikes to charge up regardless of brand.

    Imagine when you are riding your EV MotorSickle and the batteries decide they’ve had enough and this happens between your legs….

    China is going to be a toxic waste land from these EV's.

    Sometimes I'm glad that I'm getting old. By the time this"woke" stuff takes over I'll probably be on the other side of the river

    I'm not too sure they'll actually head that way in the near future. Big companies (Indian and HD included) are all about profit, and they'd be missing on a big slice of the cake. Also, notice the wording there... "the future" is vague enough to mean nothing in practical terms. This feels more like planting a (marketing) seed for the next generation of consumers rather than an actual production plan of any kind, with a concrete roadmap and stuff.

    In the last 2 yrs they’ve closed about 180 stealerships. I’m curious to see what the next few years brings them

    My first thought was, it might not be their decision, is this a GOV decision?
