    If thats the case, I hate to think of what we're going to see come of the MV Agusta / HD merger.

    Yeah! Castiglioni bought it back for $1 after he sold it several years prior for over $70M. Then HD dumped $30M into it.

    The big question is how HD is going to write off this loss? On the loyal or new customers, shareholders, employees of the motor company?

    this will be the second time Castiglioni bought it back for a dollar.
    they ( HD ) will hide the loss under disolving Buell for sure

    I'll be in the minority and say that looks Bad AZZ! I love the peg position; looks like it'd be a comfortable ride. Is HD paying attention??? They should be...

    I would say NO!!!!!!!!!!
    if they were they would have kept Buell
    Now rumor has it they will sell the " fisher " at HD stealerships as an entry level bike.
    motor made in korea is no closer to an HD engine then a rotax. :doh:

    The Rotax engine was probably the best thing Buell could have done to get some real power out his bikes. They drop Buell and give away MV without gaining any technological intelligence from the deal. At least nothing we've seen so far...

    Its a great alternative to a V-Max, V-Rod or Rocket. I'd like to see it in the flesh though there is no way i'm trading my sportclassic for one!

    There is no alternative to a V-Max. In a class all by itself.

    It appears that many motorcycle manufacturers have been trying too hard lately...

    it looks kinda interesting to me. A new bike without an ugly pipe? Amazing. I wonder how it corners with rake and trail like that, can't imagine it's very good.

    Actually looks like they had a 3-way with a B-King.

    I don't hate it. Rider position and over all style seems interesing. Still. No danger of it winning me over from Streetfighter. Not that I would EVER look at actually buying a Duc with all the impressive new HONDA Models that are flooding our showrooms, Oh, wait a tic....
