I ride a Harley as most people do it seems, but while talking with long time Harley owner/riders the topic of horsepower from stock Harley bikes came up and most of the group can't understand why the power is kept at a low number compared to other brands on the market these days. As some pointed out, other brands have 100hp in stock bikes without modifications/rebuilds. Some felt the only way Harley could do this is to go with the V Rod water cooled engine which may be the case and some felt that Harley would be offering other models with the V Rod engine. With that suggestion several said that they would not buy one for it would not be a Harley and others said that if Harley did they would definitely buy one for the added performance. Last time I checked market share on bikes, HD garners some 50% of the U.S. market and 33% of world market so like the old saying goes "if it's not broke don't fix it..." Would be interesting to see a Road Glide with the V Rod engine???
