    They aren't that huge when you see them in person and they are very functional

    Wow, all the looks of a "crotch rocket" without all that "crotch rocket" performance...However, a Harley with a Rotax motor is a step in the right direction

    Buell = Harley

    This is probably the first step before they finally drop a water-cooled engine in a Sportster, which would go great with the fuel injection it already has. At least, that's the rumor I've heard on some Harley boards.

    Buell = Harley?

    I understand what you are trying to say but a Buell isn't a Harley and a Harley isn't a Buell.

    I'm still not sure how Buell == Harley

    Harley is the parent company of Buell but AFAIK they are 2 separate companies

    This engine will never be in a sportster Buell spent put their own assets on the line when developing and building this engine and they hold the patent to ensure this engine will only be in Buell motorcycles.
    I'm not saying the sportster will never go to liquid cooling but it won't be with this engine.
