I see both sides. For instance, I'm an American V8 guy. The sound of one of those bad boys opening up is unmatched. I'm sure a lot of the Harley guys feel the same.I like HD being progressive and looking to the future. Too many Harley people are mad about the company making a proto-type that is electric and totally different. I out grew crotch rockets when I turned 30, but it is still pretty interesting and I would love to see it in person. I am a fan of all motorcycles so I can appreciate it.
I'm guessing if they put this technology in a bagger they could almost double the battery capacity with the extra room (not including the bags, they could be used for additional range). I would guess with the weight increase it would be capable of 250-300mi. This is nothing but speculation on my part.They would probably be ok for the daily commute crowd but I like to be able to get out on a road trip once or twice a year and that won't cut it. I think they are claiming a range of about 170 on a charge.
It's a good start and I think it could be a hit overseas.
