Just my own personal, biased opinion, but I think AFT has seen the writing on the wall. If this sport is going to maintain the momentum it has re-gained, Harley HAS to remain involved - somehow. If H-D were to walk completely, or worse, be forced out by AFT regulation, without other brands with a similar following to fill the void, there's going to be a lot of empty seats in the stands! The Harley faithful may be dying off, but they still come to the races - by the dozens.So, I just looked at the 2021 HD lineup (at the HD site) No XG listed. Does the AMA allow it due to it still being made available in other countries? It's still homologated just not in the US.
Bill Gately of Bonneville Performance brought his first version of the liquid-cooled modern Bonneville to Williams Grove in 2019 with Jake Shoemaker as the rider. Since then, he has been polishing his combo with both engine and chassis refinements. The links below can point you towards the bike that Bill will be bringing to the 2021 Grand National tour. The rider is yet to be announced. The chassis is nothing that ever been on a Grand National bike before. It was on display at the 2020 Daytona event.Calkins, would you kindly direct me to where I can learn about the liquid-cooled Triumph? I'm not well informed -- a pitiful ignoramus, in fact -- about contemporary FT bikes, except (a little bit) the Japanese ones. Thanks.
