Porsche Revolution? I think not...

From a source I have very close to Harley-Davidson:

The “heart” of the V-Rod, the Revolution motor was born of an all American design, from the drawing board of a famed American race builder, Jerry Branch. That basic design was handed over to and further developed by H-D, resulting in the VR1000. That race-bread Harley motor was then sent to Porsche for further refinements. Though some fine engineers at Porsche did have a valuable hand in the motor’s later development, the V-Rod is by no means a “Porsche motorcycle”, any more than an air-cooled Harley is a “Japanese motorcycle”, the latter having some components and some engineering from there. The majority of the V-Rod components are made here in America, and each bike is assembled here in America, at the Harley-Davidson factory, by proud and loyal Harley-Davidson employees. And the styling, the “sole” of the V-Rod, you know where that came from, and it wasn't Porsche. The V-Rod is pure Harley-Davidson, with a forward-looking sole all its own, based on bold and unique styling, excellent quality, and race proven performance and reliability. In short, one could say it’s a Harley-Davidson Revolution!

I think he was talking about the VR1000... although the Revo was recently used in endurance.

Does HD even have any engineers? They only need stylists and designers. Nothing ever changes and you can buy carb to FI kits and just bolt 'em on.

:-p
