    $40,000 for a electric toaster I don't think so. Harley has lost it, their new bikes sales is failing badly, second hand market nearly giving away late model Harley's, I am starting to believe that Harley are in their end days.

    When considering the price don't forget to factor in greatly reduced running/maintenance costs. 
    It is an electric motor, compared to an engine - an electric motor has just a single moving part! No wear from pieces of metal rubbing against each other or opening/closing against each other, no springs, no gears meshing, no pistons, no cylinder/ring wear, no compression loss, no valves opening/closing, no exhaust/mufflers caboning up, no soot, no engine/transmission/primary oil, no seals/gaskets, no petrol costs, no fuel tank corrosion, no fuel tap/line leaks, no air leaks, no starter motor, no clutch, no gearbox, no oil cooler, no water/radiator, no ignition module/cam position sensor, no spark plugs, no injectors or carbs, no air filter, no tuning, no detonation or overheating damage, no vibration damage, no heat damage.
    The running costs saved per km just on fuel savings alone are quite substantial, then maintenance costs being low you would get a return on your initial money outlay soon enough.
    One disadvantage with high voltage power system is there would be much less for the owner to tinker with!

    Still aftermarket parts options - suspension, brakes, wheels, seats etc.
    Although with the bike coming with Brembo brakes & Showa suspension you would wanna keep them.

    But how long does the battery pack last.
    I believe they degrade over time?
    The more you recharge and if you use the rapid charge the more they degrade.

    This is just what I have read so I was wondering if anyone knows the facts?
