Harley is a very successful mc company. I would deem such an aquisition as a good business deal for BOTH parties.

I can envision a WILD hybrid cruiser designed by M. Tamburini that I would be at the front of the line to buy.

Actually a big infusion of Harley cash would be a good thing. Regardless of what you think of the bike, their current business model works very well. Add to that the vast dealer network and it may be all good.

I agree with this. mostly.


I guess it depends on what you define 'would work'.


I don't want MV to go under. But I guess the elitist in me doesn't want it to be mainstream necessarily either.....
