    Less range than the Zero, due no doubt to the lesser battery capacity. The new Zero SRF has a 110 hp motor, 140 lb/ft of torque, and a top speed of 124. Almost twice the price of the Buell, though. Still, good to see more stuff on the market (if it shows up...)

    Buell started with some really ugly bikes. I see he is ending that way, too.

    But isn't it good to see Eric back out there??? Anyway, 9 out of 10 new motorcycles are ugly anyhow, they're plastic & over-exaggerated features. Remember how classy H-D's FX bikes of the early 80's looked? Nice factory paint, deep chrome & awesome styling. Now all the bikes are getting that "futuristic" look, the look of class is history...Click image for larger version.

    It is great to see him back. I've met him. Great guy. Great engineer. Not so great with marketing, but if he could get the right people around him.
