Real estate is down, the stock market is still doing pretty good but American consumers are spending less on cars, motorcycles & ATV’s. We all know that Harley-Davidson sales have slowed down and because the 2008 product lineup is going to be announced in July struggling dealers are trying to clean out the 2007 inventory. Most of the bikes on the floor are now selling below MSRP and incentives offered by dealers include $ 0.00 down and 2.99% financing. All this is creating an unhealthy discount war between dealers. In this buyer’s market, speculation is high about what bikes or model makeovers Harley will introduce for 2008. Rumors include the possibility of a V-Rod touring bike, a chopper-style motorcycle, a sport bike and a 3-wheeler (Harley recently filed for a patent for a Bombardier Spyder style bike with two wheels in the front and one in the back). Of course, I will keep you posted.
