The flattrackers were built that way using special construction chassis for the sole purpose of handling properly while racing straight on, and sliding sideways on dirt.
H-D is certainly doing this to attract young people (the market they are after) to the excitement of flattrack racing (which they have a lengthy history of participation) along with and more importantly seeing and hearing the potential of their new powertrain the XG750.

seriously they would do well for themselves to sell those to the public. The type of bike that buell no longer sells ;) Every other brand capitalizes on their racing pedigree yet Harley seems shy about it...

C'mon think about those a street fighter, imagine HD Street 500 Roadster vs Yamaha fz09 ;) you want to talk about pulling in a new audience that's your avenue right there!
