I don't know much at all about the M8. But I understand it has totally new technology developed by HD. Apparently 4 valves per cylinder.

Harley needs to "get ahead of the curve" now. Stop trying to use "old technology" developed by others like electric motors.

They need to develop a cold Fusion engine to power the next generation of motorcycles.

(Note, just like Nikola it wouldn't be necessary to have an engine that actually worked. You just fake the demo and Bob's your Uncle !)
