Here's a twist. I wonder if Shineray paid HD, or if they just copied the design?

I read somewhere HD let the patent expire. So they probably copied it.

Yes, I believe the patents on the engine expired.

There is more about this bike than just the engine that was copied.

I agree, looks pretty good for a Chinese bike.
