3 years that I tell you that the European market may be the new Eldorado for many US bike and part manufacturers. At the condition that you get all TUV approvals… Not only because Europe is in a much better economic shape but also because beause the US dollar lost 50% of its value against the euro.
Very competitive prices when you export and a huge currency trade profit when your euros are exchanged back in US dollars. And you don’t need to be a big manufacturer to do it. Example, small manufacturer Santiago Chopper signing a distribution agreement with a French company to sell its Sportster and Softail trikes to european dealers, including official Harley ones. Worth noting, some countries don’t require a motorcycle license to drive a trike, your car license being enough to pilot a 3-wheeler. Target? Like here in the US, baby boomers and a greater percentage of women. Santiago Chopper.
