Inline twin, like a Sunbeam S7. ;D

P Twin please.

( I think Msr. McQueen may be looking down on us with a wry grin over this )
I can break it better,,,,at night, in the rain, on the trail,, 20 miles from nowhere.

I vote parallel twin BUT if they're making this bike to take on Harley at home they may be more inclined to a v-twin to compete more directly.

My initial reaction was H-D has has twenty year head start in advertising with Billions spent in that department for RE to make any headway at all with a V-Twin.

And then a V Star rumbled past,,,,,,,

Well, as long as there's a contest;
How about a V-twin like a Victoria Burgmeister.
Just to be different...

Isn't it amazing what you can do quietly, with a little technology and a willingness to innovate? Hahaha! I'm guessing that the whole "Vee-Twin" thing is getting a bit long int he tooth for the general buying public ..... but I don't know for sure - my crystal ball has a chip in it ....  ::)
