the "V-Rod" makes use of an engine developed jointly with Porsche that, for the first time in Harley history, incorporates fuel injection, overhead cams, and liquid cooling. The V-Rod is visually distinctive, easily identified by the 60-degree V-Twin engine, the radiator and the hydro formed frame members that support the round-topped air cleaner cove. Harley gave Porsche the specs and said design. Quote Buell what Harley said "We have too many other projects going on." By the way the design was tested in Europe.
Even the first Buell racing was getting Kosworth liquid cooled engines. They were the first Ducatti prototype engines
So who do think designed it? Bosch fuel injection more horse power better throttle response, overhead cam more efficient, liquid cool are not all Harley innovations or Buell innovations. You know what Bill Gates said "Be a pirate". What you can not make steal and call it your own. So the origins of innovation are at best suspicious.
