Passed after the launch of the F4 and just before the F3 went to production. His son took over and expanded the company and production to what it is now.
One of the better things H-D ever did.

HD needed the water cooling technology that MV had already figured out. Air cooled was out in Cali and the Euro market they wanted, and they would have bled out more than 150mil to engineer that themselves. And they were smart enough to know it. They didn't want some beautique italian company, just the engineering that was already done.

They will need to dragged into liquid cooling by the EPA . As long as they pass the EPA they keep going with air cooled . Not realizing there are tons of us that were ready for liquid cooling years ago .

wondering about this
so they did nothing with the 150 mil LC technology?

Vrod was LC long before the MV purchase - and someone else's engine anyway
they came out many years later with Twin Cooling
just cools the exhaust port area of the heads - can't see that coming from MV

timing was terrible, bought MV in '08
and we all know what happened a year later
