2015 Indian Scout Leaked!

Aug 02, 2014 - 4:49 PM - by NickJ


Looks like the LA Times dropped the ball on this one!

http://www.latimes.com/business/auto...801-story.html

The story has been taken down, but not before people were able to grab ahold of the image headlining the whole story! The brand new Indian Scout looks breathtaking! I was not sure what they were going to do with it. Would it be a scrambler; or a modern classic like the Bonnevilles, Royal Enfields; or would it be a straight shot at the Harley Sportster? Looks like they are gunning straight for the bread and butter of Harley's lineup!

Ready to Make History: Polaris Slingshot is a Reality

Jun 30, 2014 - 11:41 AM - by NickJ


Today is the day that so many of us who have been watching this secret project from Polaris finally get a taste of sweet sweet validation! We thought that Polaris has had something up their sleeves and today we got the word that the Polaris Slingshot is indeed going to be a reality, and the full release is going to be on 27th of July!

From what we can tell, and what has been rumored, the Polaris Slingshot is a street legal machine that has an open top, and apparently no doors. The Slingshot, from what we can tell from the Patent Drawings and Spy Shots, is a 3-wheeled vehicle that has two wheels up front and one in the rear. We are not 100% sure if it is a front wheel drive car, or rear just yet.

The details are a little light, but I can tell you from the screen caps from the Polaris Slingshot Teaser Video is this: Polaris is ALL IN on this new product, and they have abandoned the CVT in favor of a manual shift transmission... I say that they are "All In" due to the fact that you can spy in the video that they will likely have a full line of Slingshot Branded outerwear based on the fact that the driver is wearing gloves. This leads me to believe that the slingshot is, as rumored, open topped with no roof available!


Also, you see the driver is swapping cogs with his right hand instead of the "foot down and go" operation of a CVT transmission in virtually all of their full line of vehicles. An interesting departure for sure! I for one am excited to think that they have three pedals on the floor and a shifter for your right hand!

The next video is slated to release on July 7th, and subsequent videos all the way up to the full release on the 27th of July! It might just be a second Independence day for many of us!

As we have been watching the Slingshot for over a year, we have the premier place to read all of the news and rumors of what this new machine is and will be capable of! Polaris Slingshot Forum

Harley Livewire Specs

Jun 26, 2014 - 2:52 PM - by NickJ

[


Engine: AC Induction Motor
Power: 74 HP / 52 LB-FT
Transmission: Single-Speed
0-60 Time: 4.0 Seconds (est.)
Top Speed: 92 MPH
Drivetrain: Rear-Wheel Drive
Curb Weight: 360 LBS (est.)
Seating: 1
MPG: 60-Mile Range (est.)

Well this is disappointing... Range of 60 miles. No potato potato potato sounds... The bright side though... It is the best dang looking electric bike that I have seen yet.

It is not a production bike so I don't think they were super concerned with getting range optimization done right now. When/IF it even gets made, they will likely extend that range.

My question is this... What is the point?!? Bikes are already fuel efficient. Electric cars are designed for commuting, and bikes are already good at that with their current power plants. I also understand the progression of the science behind it as well, but I don't get the need for an electric bike from HD.

I don't know... I am not a believer that electric is the answer.
