Very interesting but like so many premium suvs they'll probably see very little off-road use I'd guess. The off-road bikes HD did come up with were less than inspiring. One of my dirt magazines in the late 70's talked about the orange one (can't remember the name) and it was faster in the second highest gear because it could't pull the top gear. They went racing and I think an oil line blew causing a dnf....can't remember most of it except it wasn't pretty especially when better stuff was available for way le$$. Still nice work but $47,000...wow!
I admire him for his innovativeness & for having the balls to go ahead with it,
BUT, it's just one man's dream,& no matter how many rich Harley owners there are out there, he won't even recoup his set up & manufacturing costs.
Custom one at a time bikes are very expensive regardless of the platform it is built on.
Now, you can get a kit to convert a Suzuki savage into a cafe bike for about $5000. No suspension, brakes, etc included in that price though. add olins front and back and you are out $20,000 for a single cylinder budget bike.
Here is a video of him
I have see the bike personally. Pictures don't do it justice so many little things on this bike. Would I own one yes but not for that price. I will keep my KLE650 http://carduccidualsport.com/
