Just looked at all the specs. If this were available right now I would actually buy one. It looks like they aren't going to start building until next spring though. By the time I got one my school would be over. Very cool though. And it takes a motorcycle license to drive if you noticed.

I've had a motorcycle license for decades. Gave up riding about 8 years ago. Just to dangerous in the Phoenix Valley . I think they give licenses to blind people here. I have already placed my deposit for delivery in the summer of 2014. Sometime before that I will meet them in Detroit. The distributor plans will be announced in 3 to 4 months. I will go there then. More info as I get it. Go to their facebook page..about a dozen videos. The test mule is in Wash DC area at the present time.

They have already gotten a shuttered GM plant in Louisiana that will employ about 1500 Americans to build them. All vendor relationships have been made over the last 24 months of planning. 36 month 36000 mile warranty. AC...Airbags etc. AND only $6800.00 . This is a LEAN company.

I too quit riding after having my daughter. Have had a MC indorse end since high school. I was about to start riding again then lost my dad last year when he was T-boned in an intersection in LA on his bike. No more Harley for me. This thing is pretty cool, saw that about the Louisiana plant. I really admire on their website how they put ALL their vendors and who they supply parts too, even the one about the body panels that only supplies them. Seems like they aren't afraid to put it all on the table to make people comfortable.

Spring is here, where are the cars?

Someone said they changed the date to be 2016 on their website?
Dave did you put up money with your reservation?
