What do you think that means genious?

Porsche is a design studio as well as a manufacturer. They help other manufacturers makers with projects that do not involve sportscars.

Read it here, and I will ever quote it for you.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porsche

"Porsche also helped Harley-Davidson design their new engine in their newer V-Rod motorcycle."

You can knock it off with the puerile name-calling. Please have the same respect for me that I have for you.

Now, then.... Never did I deny Porshe had anything to do with it. It simply misconceived that Porsche COMPLETELY designed the motor.

I really don't know why this would only be for the European market though, it looks like it would be a great backroads carver, and around town bike here in the states.

Yes I know it isn't a superbike, so save it. But it looks like a bike you could really have a lot of fun with in the twisties if the pictures above are any indication.

Three more for you Tx,

Believe in what ever myths you want, but your engine was designed in Stuttgart.


http://wheels.coxohio.com/wl/Content...heelie1201.htm

".... the Revolution engine was developed for the V-Rod by Porsche Engineering in Weissach, Germany."

http://www.motoring.co.za/index.php?...icleId=2112389

"The Porsche-designed motor ....."

http://findarticles.com/p/articles/m...82/ai_85047970

"And that's what they have done with the 2003 Porsche Cayenne SUV, one of PEG most recent projects (others include the Opel Zafira body and the Harley-Davidson V-Rod's engine.) While Schiefer won't talk about the vehicle, he does say, "it will be a real Porsche and it will be a great "business card' for Porsche engineering.""

I never argued it was desinged in Stuttgart. I know it WAS.

HOWEVER, The motor was a joint-venture between HD and Porsche. There were engineers from both entities there and both had their hands in it.

You can site all of the articles you want. Until I see something from HD MoCo or Porsche stating it was a Porsche design, I will still to my guns.

Myth? Please.

I'm done here.

, I walked into the party late and everyone's already had their fun. . .
Either way, I think that's a kick motorcycle, and I'm not much of an HD fan. I would ride it, and +1 for originality. I'm proud of the fact that my bike does not look like every other bike i see at ASI or PP1 on a regular basis. JET

That is all that I am trying to get at here. The engine was designed in Stuttgart in the Porsche design studio by Porsche Engineers. It's a Porsche, along with the 911 and the Pontiac Fiero. :BangHead: :BangHead: :BangHead:



I have scene the production facility in KC, it's nice.

FIERO!! Are you s**tting me? :laughing6

I've seen 3 of those in as many days. Weren't they absolute junk?

As for the factory... I want to make it up there, eventually. There was a rather large V-Rod rally there 2 weekends ago - the 2nd annual. I'm hoping to be there for the 3rd and on.

I you not. The prototype Fiero was build on a 914-6 chassy powered by a 911 flat six engine.

Pontiac changed the production version to a POS.

Pontiac Fiero was design by Porsche???? Six cylinder or Four??? Either one are a piece of craps. The names saids it, Pontiac Fire-oh. I remember these things catch on fire a lot. It use to be my favorite car, GT. Anyway, go back to motorcycle.

How do you know so much about Porsche??? From the last topic we talk about air cooled you pull Porsche out of the hat.

BMW was the company that built great airplane and the world decided stop them from producing anymore, so they went with automobile and motorcycle.

I had two friends in Highschool that had fiero's. One was bad , the other really was .

They were both the 6 cylinders, but for some reason one guy kept his in mint condition. I think he was even in a fiero club. he had a holly carb with side induction. that thing was fast.

Rotary engines are simple in design but unique. There is a Rotary Perfomance shop, well known in drag races across from me. They used to dyno everyday but lately it is seldom noise:eh: .
