At first, I thought it was just another prank, when I heard that Honda will be buying a majority stake in Harley-Davidson.

Then I noticed the headlines were coming from Forbes, Reuters, and Associated Press, three very well respected news sources.

And then, I read the articles that said it was a rumor.

So, is Honda really going to buy out Harley-Davidson?

No one knows right now. The articles say that neither Harley nor Honda is willing to discredit the rumor. However, experts all agreee that such a merger would never get the blessing from Washington DC because it would create a near monopoly on heavyweight motorcycles.

Under the supposed rumor, Honda would control 60% of Harley.

Here are links to some articles, you decide...
