Q:

How much does a Harley-Davidson weigh?

A:

The base weight of a Harley-Davidson motorcycle depends on its model type and level of customization. As of 2014, the Superlow ships from the factory at 540 pounds, the Heritage Softail Classic ships at 730 pounds and the CVO Road Glide Ultra ships at 905 pounds.

The running weight of a motorcycle includes the weight of fuel and oil and varies by model. Harley-Davidson was established in 1901, when William S. Harley completed his blueprint for an engine designed to fit on a bicycle. The first Harley-Davidson motorcycle was built in 1903, and the company's first factory was built three years later, in 1906.

Some real-life jet packs only make very limited flights, while others are more like machine-powered parachutes that don't have the ability to lift off from the ground independently.
