(Reuters) In an effort to reclaim market share lost to Honda, Harley Davidson today revealed its concept fairing design. The new design is intended to "one up" Honda by creating an improved windflow over rider and bike.

The drawbacks to this design, however, are sufficient to cause concern amongst the touring segment. A recent market surveyshows that many long term Goldwing owners believe the new design limits the mounting options for Deer Alerts. The design is unlikely to find its way into Harleys consumer lineup.

I like the front rotor cover, ideal for showing off that ring of fire, but I wouldn't want to be that guy if that is the model with fitted airbag!!

If it was "RedWings" he'd have the "Wheel Covers" off, so everyone could see the "Bridgestone Tires"!!!
