    Curious that they would just buy it and not do anything with it. Why buy it? Maybe, in the future, if we feel like it?

    Harley concepts that never developed or sold........Pehaps engineering, safety, or market demand issues that didn't warrant further development. Harley's Collection X: https://www.aimag.com/the-curious-case-of-harleys-tilting-three-wheeler-the-penster/

    I had high hopes for Harley's Penster (Tilter):

    I had high hopes for the Elio too.

    Strange that they'd use such an odd-ball engine for this little trike [Citroen]. VW 1600cc air-cooled boxer engines are cheap, and parts are plentiful. Pretty cool though! I'd drive one!

    They tried Subaru but Subaru was not interested in selling an engine/trans to them. Citroen was.
