I just found out about this liquid cooled model. Is this what we've been waiting for as far as a model which looks like an HD and is liquid cooled? If this has already been kicked around, please disregard the thread. If not, me likey and you?
No it's a fairly small, low performance scooter. Aimed at the Indian market. But the MoCo hopes it will act as an entry level scooter for the ladies, youngsters, and folks who are perhaps intimidated by the other offerings.
But it may be the writing on the wall. Both in what we can expect to be seeing in the bigger scooters as the EPA clamps down. And where we might see the scooters being built down the road a few years. The administration is quietly working to opening our markets to free trade from that part of the world.
The Asian market will make it or break it. If it sells well here, then the MoCo will import a bunch. If not, then it will join the other foreign ventures that were tried and found lacking.
It should give the dealer network some more experience with water cooled motors. As well as giving the MoCo a wet platform to build on. And based on wet vs dry cooled power output, it probably wouldn't need to be much larger to for it to replace the TC. With a properly tuned intake setup, it could most likely match a wethead 103 with less than a 1000 cc's.
