I remember when the Vrod was introduced. Long time riders were clamoring for a fully water cooled modern motor in a touring bike. They should have at least released a new modern engine in the softails etc. to gauge interest.

Look how quickly they killed Buell. Buell would be a brand that attracted younger riders.

Management is very shortsighted.

"The company said it would fund its plans by comprehensively cutting costs."

As if they haven't already cut bike components to the bone.   >:(

There's lots they can do like, using Shinko tires, less refined metallurgy in parts and castings, softer and thinner brake pads and more.
