Harley Davidson at EICMA

It's been 12 years since Harley Davidson first leapt into the 1980's with their liquid cooled V Rod.

Now they're doing it again with the re-release of the Honda VT500E Ascot... no, wait...

I find this video boring and confusing. It's boring 'cos it's 10 minutes long and it's confusing 'cos I can't understand what they're talking about and I'm baffled why the Astronautilus guy talks like Will Smith. If it was Will Smith talking I wouldn't be bored or confused 'cos Will would just tell it like it is.

He'd say -

"S'up y'all? This is the new 2014 Harley Davidson Street 500/750. It's a real Harley Davidson, but it's built for emerging markets so it's smaller, lighter and cheaper than y'all used to. And it be liquid cooled an'all 'cos in emerging markets, pollution, noise, performance and fuel economy are real important. We gonna release some in the 'States too 'cos we hope some Hipsters might like'em, but we not sho'..."

Then they'd cut to the bit of the video with the music and the shots of the bike. The whole experience would take about two minutes and people would say -"Tha's cool."
As it is, it's horseshit and even the people talking in the video clearly don't believe it.

-"It's tuned to handle any extreme cities across the globe."

What the fuck does that even mean?!! 

I dunno...
