That looks great, a nice creative way to hide the radiators. Honestly first time I saw an Electraglide, I thought those fairings were radiators.

It looks a lot like the big-2000cc- Kawi that has water cooled heads.Why not just bite the bullet and use the V-Rod engine in the big twin bikes,they might even get new customers!!

The old timers would never have it! Given how the majority of their customer base is old timers, it won't happen. The Vrod has been out for over 10 years and it still is looked down upon by the "hardcore" members.

Yep, but the VRod is like riding on a milk crate. Had one. Sold it. Made all my broken parts hurt. If they made a VRod that I can ride as long as my Electraglide I would have kept it. LJM

so as a gold wing 1800 rider i know all about cooling fans and radiators. a quick look suggests that the hot air either is blown onto the rider's knees by the fans or else blown back against the oncoming breeze. not sure that is an efficient way to cool things down!!!

I am both a Buell rider and a fan of the brand. Having said that a V rod engine in a bagger is about as bad of a combination as you could get.

Maybe H.D.will have to revisit the NOVA project and build the V4 liquid cooled engine for the big twins.(no va means no go in spanish)
