A friend of mine sent me this link.

It looks like a CanAm Spyder that leans. Do you think H-D will ever make this thing?

Interesting idea, it probably would sell to those who are long time riders who don't keep the feeling of a two wheeler but have balance issues.

And those who don't want to downsize.

Anything is possible but I don't think it is likely either.

I'd bet they fix up the leaks before they build a sport trike...

I just saw an article in the latest issue of Motorcycle Comsumer News. Some guy from the midwest has plans to use and FLH series Harley to do a leaning reverse trike. The picture looks similar to the H-D drawing, except for an FLH frame. The guy is looking for investors.
Hmm. Do you think this may be H-D letting a design out the back door, just to see how well it is received by the current US motorcycle market?

Mainah's picture is just a Piaggio....they are all over Italy........So the technology obviously already exists....I think my BMW/Vespa dealer has them in stock..........Is Harley ready to build something that foreign to them? I doubt it........
