EU to get special Hardleys

In my half awake state this morning I heard an interview with an EU or UK Harley exec saying they were going to give us a 1200cc special model which had the American 'Character' but was designed more around EU/UK riders needs and twisty roads. I was pretty sure I heard him say he rode Beemers (yes he did).

Then I heard 2 questions from the reporter, will the new bike go round corners (clearly the others don't so well) and a second relevant question about 'sportyness'. Their Exec is certainly saying we will be getting something you guys don't have, so I wonder if that means a better bike?

I've now located the interview sound link:

There was an article in the latest Motorcyclist. Hopped up 1200 Sportster, supposedly putting out 90 horses. Means this Hardley will almost be able to keep up with an R1200r.
