Harley-Davidson Tomorrow. Short Term A 500 cc Model. Long Term, Possibly An e-Harley.

Cyril-Huze-Harley-LogoLet’s talk again about the Harley-Davidson Mentality Shift  I was describing in my post on August 30th when referring to the Rushmore Project. Last weekend, Matt Levatich – President and Chief Operating Officer of Harley-Davidson Motor Company – would have said to a few journalists (was not among them) that a 500 cc model is in advanced stage of development, that he rode one, that it looks very good, that it is very light weight, nimble, with a low seat, great throttle response and braking. Such a project has been rumored several times during the last 2 years as the way to put in the Harley saddle new customers in Asia and India where 500 cc is a big size engine. Immediately, such a mid size bike makes me think of the Buell Blast sacrificed in 2009 with the rest of the Buell lineup.

Cyril-Huze-Harley-Logo-bisAlthough Levatich hinted that this 500 cc model could be produced in India – an excellent cheaper manufacturing base (than the US) for fast exportation to other countries in the region – let’s not forget about Harley other plant in Brazil, another excellent distribution platform for all markets in South America. On one hand Harley mentality is shifting to more modernism, safety and comfort to keep the baby boomers riding a Harley as long as possible (Rushmore Project), and on the other hand to whatever the customer wants and can afford in big and fast developing countries. “The American qualities of a Harley are very important to people” said Levatich, “but where a shock absorber comes from is less significant than keeping (in our bikes) the spirit and soul of America…”

Cyril-Huze-Harley-Logo-bisThere are huge motorcycle markets around the world where you don’t need a license to ride a 500cc and under motorcycle. In more traditional motorcycle markets, USA, Europe, Japan, an affordable 500 cc with the iconic Harley brand image would also accelerate Harley-Davidson penetration into new demographics, youngsters, women and minorities. Harley-Davidson understands the importance of “Made In america.” At the same time, for evident economic reasons, global competition requires that brands adapt their products to and produce near their new markets. Harley-Davidson knows very well that success can’t be accomplished without expanding its percentage of bikes sold abroad. For sure, the company will do whatever is necessary to continue to prosper internationally, and consequently will have to walk a very fine marketing line to not hurt its core clientele, until “Made The American Way” is a proposition as attractive for customers in the US and abroad as the “Made in America”. And I bet with all of you, all studies proving that the quality of a product is more important than its origin, that this time is going to come, faster than you think.

Cyril-Huze-Harley-Logo-bisTo add to the debate, Matt Levatich also said: “I am sometimes asked whether there will be an electric Harley. People would say, hell no. But why not? Our engineers are quite intrigued with the idea of what an electric Harley would look like, sound like and feel like. And would it be visceral, would it be emotional, would it be luscious. There’s a way to do that, I believe. And it would be very exciting…”

    The way to go. All other big mc manufacturers go in the same direction

  3. 3 Kirk Perry Sep 3rd, 2013 at 8:52 am

    A 500cc, 45-degree OHV V-Twin?

    Or a single cylinder thumper?

    But not a Sprint or Topper motor.

  4. 4 Josh Parker Sep 3rd, 2013 at 8:55 am

    Kirk. I bet for a V-Twin. Tradition…

  5. 5 P. Hamilton. Sep 3rd, 2013 at 8:58 am

    2 HD bombshells. The end of Harley the way you knew it. Anyway, baby boomers are going to disappear. Good news for shareholders.

  6. 6 Mike Greenwald Sep 3rd, 2013 at 9:14 am

    Harley Davidson Motor Company has had other forays into other product lines. Each has been shed after a time. I feel that their time, money and personnel would be better invested in consistently making and manufacturing the best motorcycle with what they have.
    Gimmicks and trendiness rarely stand the test of time.
    Concentration of efforts to the weight, handling, ease of ergonomic change, and ease of repair rather than replacement will last.
    If the pathway is taken to liquid cool the powerplant, do it and do it well. If oil/air cooled cooled motors are to survive, back the governments down about regulations that only cost you and your consumers money, longevity, and reliability.

    Not an American product, just an American assembled product.
    Pretty much stated what we have all known for quite awhile.

  8. 8 mk Sep 3rd, 2013 at 9:30 am

    let me guess half of an 883 engine?

  9. 9 Semper Sep 3rd, 2013 at 9:35 am

    Cyril just created today a great slogan for Harley-Davidson. “Built The American Way.” The only thing Harley can say without lying. Hope you get royalties if HD take it from you, Cyril…

  10. 10 Mike Ellis Sep 3rd, 2013 at 9:37 am

    hi from the UK , this bike should be made in america even if labour costss are higher , the persuit of higher profits at the cost of american jobs should be frowned upon and be looked at as the thin end of the wedge .

  11. 11 Dave Sep 3rd, 2013 at 9:38 am

    I sure hope Indian/Victory continue to expand their lines and build bikes in the USA with USA parts. Harley sucks more and more every day and I will ditch them in a heartbeat. I want an American bike built in America with American parts.

  12. 12 fuji Sep 3rd, 2013 at 9:40 am

    “Made The American Way” INSTEAD OF MADE IN AMERICA. ? Is that saying Fools will buy it wherever its made because its Made the American way. Harley slogans are hilarious.

    All studies proving that the quality of a product is more important than its origin. Really!

    The American way ?

    Here it comes “again ” Harley loyal little by little , The transition. Not bah bah bah but bla bla bla .

    Harley riders are in a position now to come up with new slogans for other bikes and riders. Owning a Harley is tough.

  13. 13 Graham Sep 3rd, 2013 at 9:41 am

    This is great news, the MoCo may dominate the American market but it is a relatively small fish globally. Asia and Africa are growing market’s for Motorcycles, mostly Chinese copies of old Japanese models. Getting into this market, if successful, would help sustain the company through the peaks and troughs of the western economies.
    Something along the lines of what KTM and BMW are doing with their smaller bikes would probably appeal to younger European and American riders too, but perhaps that may be step too far for the MoCo.

  14. 14 J. Clermont Sep 3rd, 2013 at 9:48 am

    Fuji. It is absolutely correct to state that customers care more more about price and quality than about where a product is manufactured. Look at what you already consume. 95% is probably made abroad. Ideas come in majority from developped countries. Manufacturing comes from countries in development with low cost labor. And it’s not going to change. Just going to amplify. And your statement will change nothing. Reality check. You are probably like me a baby boomer. We are not the future of any brands in 10, 15 or 25 years. Harley is doing the right thing to grow and prosper.

  15. 15 T. Rodig Sep 3rd, 2013 at 10:00 am

    If you don’t understand and approve Harley strategy, you don’t understand business. Period.

  16. 16 Terence Tory Sep 3rd, 2013 at 10:24 am

    The five hundred bike has plenty of problems for Harley to pull it off successfully.It can’t be a cheap.dysfunctional and obsolete “feeder/entry level vehicle” for world markets like the Sportster because:#1 It may be the only affordable H-D in certain places, so dynamics and quality must be high ,#2 There is really no prospect of upgrading to standard H-D models for owners in these markets and #3 Consumers in countries like India and China will not buy junk products just based on name alone.

    I think the motor will be similar looking to the Blast single,but with many more modern improvements.Think Suzuki Savage 650 motor but with EFI.I doubt H-D could make a good 500cc V-twin at an affordable price if their companies survival depended on it.

  17. 17 Terence Tory Sep 3rd, 2013 at 10:27 am

    Dave:”I want an American bike built in America with American parts” .Such a thing has not existed for decades.

  18. 18 P. Hamilton. Sep 3rd, 2013 at 10:28 am

    Terence Tory. Wrong. Victory motorcycles.

  19. 19 Terence Tory Sep 3rd, 2013 at 10:31 am

    P. Hamilton.,The term BS springs to mind.Tell me where all the Victory components are made,piece by piece,item by item.

  20. 20 P. Hamilton. Sep 3rd, 2013 at 10:39 am

    Terence. It’s you who is stating that Victory components are not made in America. So, prove your statement. We are all interested by your listing of Victory parts made abroad. Go ahead, we all want to know how much you know and how much is BS.

  21. 21 BobS Sep 3rd, 2013 at 10:45 am

    P. Hamilton, Victory is a great American made bike with a lot of nice American made parts. I own one. But even with that it’s still a globally sourced product. Chinese wiring harnesses, Italian or Japanese brakes…tour the factory and you’ll see boxes that come from all over the world. If any manufacturer tried to source 100% of the parts from their own country a, some of the parts would not be the best available but more importantly b, the bike would be much more expensive. I’m sure Victory or Harley could source closer to 100% of their parts domestically, but if the price of the base Street Glide or Cross Country rose to over 30,000 dollars they would lose sales, which means fewer bikes produced, which means fewer American jobs. Having some foreign parts content is NOT a bad thing for American jobs.

  22. 22 Kirk Perry Sep 3rd, 2013 at 10:49 am

    ~ If they made a 500cc, OHV, 45 cu. in. machine, then it would at least be strong enough to pull a sick lady-of-the-evening, off a xxx-pot and give the four-five people of yesteryear a reason to live for. ~
    Revenge of the little flat-head society.

  23. 23 Hockey pucker Sep 3rd, 2013 at 11:13 am

    HARLEY DAVIDSON – Made The American Way – ” In India”.

    Does anyone think Harley can build a bike equal to any BMW, KTM, TRIUMPH, DUCATI?

    Answer – Yes they can – But will they?

  24. 24 Zen Sep 3rd, 2013 at 11:49 am

    I work for Boeing in Supply Chain Mgt. We outsourced almost all of the 787 to foreign countries or other U.S. suppliers. We are assemblers and don’t own the drawings of any part we don’t make and thus can’t control the quality. Further, we lose American jobs every day. We bring Russian engineers to our factories and teach them “The Boeing Values”, etc. and then outsource the engineering to Moscow. Six hundred engineers have left in the last few months.

    Harley could stand to learn from Apple and keep as much manufacturing in house as possible. If not to control quality, to keep American jobs. Do we want to hollow out our manufacturing industry any more? I have been to Milwaukee, Detriot, Anderson Indiana, etc. and seen what happens to towns and families. I have no loyalty to my company and do the minimum to get by. I sometimes ignore potential problems and let them exacerbate so we can hire temps to help resolve it or keep the current contractors employed.

    In the end, we will make nothing and after having outsourced everything, we will be a third world country and perhaps Indonesia or Thailand will outsource to us.

  25. 25 Greeko Sep 3rd, 2013 at 11:52 am

    Of course there is no “American Way” to build a motorcycle. Motorcycles are built the same way, with the same process all over the world. But it’s a good slogan, although empty of real substance. It will work well in markets abroad and even in the US where most HOG brothers still think that riding a Harley is to show support to the USA.

  26. 26 Greeko Sep 3rd, 2013 at 11:58 am

    Zen. You wrote “I have no loyalty to my company and do the minimum to get by.” And you wonder why America lost its dealership? And you complain? Shame on you.

  27. 27 SIGFREED Sep 3rd, 2013 at 12:27 pm

    From a staunch HD supporter, I am beginning to have doubts as well – the key motivator is a bona fide AMERICAN product through and through and with a legitimate legacy (not the fabricated Polaris kind), before I buy a HARDLY DAVIDSON, I would rather buy a REAL Italian – eg Moto Guzzi… Long Live the American Nightmare.., in fact, that is exactly what the Night Rod will then be.., the Night Mare…

  28. 28 Fritz Sep 3rd, 2013 at 12:53 pm

    Good for Harley! Something to get around on when gas hits $10 a gallon! Sooner or later, that day will come……

    Mike Ellis has a good point but the day of the “thin edge of the wedge” came and went a long time ago. For better or worse, free trade made sure of that.

  29. 29 fuji Sep 3rd, 2013 at 12:55 pm

    @J. Clermont RE” You are off base with your analogy of me and the MotorCompany. Most of my statement was with sarcasm directed toward the majority of Harley owners and their past boasting.

    You stated “It is absolutely correct to state that customers care more more about price and quality than about where a product is manufactured . HD owners aren’t your average buyer. If you think this applys to HD owners in the USA I would chuckle.

  30. 30 McGillicutty Sep 3rd, 2013 at 12:58 pm

    There are lots of other mfgs already in India and consumers there have plenty of options. Royal Enfield builds a 500c in India too. Is harley banking on taking market share away from these existing companies because it’s a “Harley”? I’m sure they’ve done their research but most Indians ride M/Cs because it’s cheap transportation not because they are M/C enthusiasts. As far as Harley making ‘American bikes’ that hasn’t happened for years. They’re built (assembled) in America (up until 2010 the Honda Goldwing was the bike with the most American made parts). Most all of Harleys apparel is Chinese. Harley has an American Legend leather jacket with a huge US flag on the inside lining; yup, Made in China. Want an American made bike? We’ll have to build it ourselves.

  31. 31 1550tc Sep 3rd, 2013 at 1:14 pm

    They should hire the Ridleys to oversee this project 🙂

  32. 32 Pinhead Sep 3rd, 2013 at 1:28 pm

    I think it’s smart, they may loose some of the die hard billy badass “Merica” riders but thay are gaining a hole new market. As for 100% made in America bikes we haven’t seen that for a long time.
    I heard “think 1125/buell”. I do think I have seen photos of the new 500cc bike. In the photos I saw, it looked like a smaller version of the 1125 motor, large radiator, v-rod style rear fender, blast front end, sportster bars and speedo and Buell style turn signals. I can not confirm that was it, but the photos were taken in India and looked to have a lot of HD parts on it.

  33. 33 Donnie Sep 3rd, 2013 at 1:40 pm

    Fuji. Most Harley riders know that a high percentage of HD parts come from abroad. They bitch but still buy Harleys because they are assembled in the US. Foreigners don’t care where their Harleys are assembled. Harley can produce in Indian or Brazil, and it’s not a handicap to sell to these local markets. As Cyril wrote, they will be happy to buy the American Way.

  34. 34 takehikes Sep 3rd, 2013 at 2:00 pm

    I don’t want HD to build the American Way if it’s how they built stuff for much of their history!
    500cc would be nice and they desperately need to get a feeder line of bikes further down the food chain to hook guys to HD early in life. Not later when they have some big money.

    I’d argue that you could build it here if you designed the right bike.

  35. 35 fuji Sep 3rd, 2013 at 3:25 pm

    If no one cares where HD is made then move all the manufacturing to china. Still want one ?

  36. 36 fuji Sep 3rd, 2013 at 3:40 pm

    Donnie. If you are such a believer. Come to the deep south. I will introduce you to some nice guys who ride Harley’s and you can explain to them [ face to face ] that their bike has Japanese electrical and fuel management systems. Then tell them the reason is because HD couldn’t make the bike run correctly.
    OH! while your at it ask them if they would buy a HD if it were made out of the country. That is if you get to the second question. It will be nice to have known you. LOL

  37. 37 Stefan Sep 3rd, 2013 at 3:45 pm

    Harley needs a 500cc bike to replace the Buell Blast for their Rider’s Edge program. This also gives entry-level consumers a more viable option for choosing a Harley as a first bike…

    I hear it may be out in February 2014…

  38. 38 Mike Greenwald Sep 3rd, 2013 at 5:30 pm

    Although the Buell Blast seems to be their last passage into smaller motors, if Harley Davidson comes forth with their own 500cc, I would hope that they would eyeball something that was light and nimble enough to flat track competitively.

  39. 39 Blackmax Sep 3rd, 2013 at 5:57 pm

    Some will buy it just because it says H-D
    For heavy bikes, maybe? For a 500cc thumper, No Way !!!!
    The “Built in America” ethos is too deeply ingrained, it will be rejected right off the bat
    Let the Asian Subcontinent and the Europeans keep this one, it’ll never fly here !!!!
    As stated earlier in the writings Thank Goodness for Polaris (Victory & Indian)

  40. 40 Septic the Sceptic Sep 3rd, 2013 at 6:18 pm

    “Royal Enfield” is an Indian company, so it makes sense that they build the Bullet in India. Derr.

    I only hope that more thought is put into this bike than simply lopping one cylinder of a Sportster. It needs to compete as a cycle in it’s own rite, not simply relying on the HD name for sales.

  41. 41 BobS Sep 3rd, 2013 at 6:27 pm

    Most of us think a foreign made 500 cc Harley Davidson will never fly here. The thing is the more quotes I hear from harley exec’s the more I think they are not among the “most of us”. It’s sounding more and more like they believe they can market “made the American way” and the sheep will follow the shepard. One thing’s for sure, interesting times are coming our way.

  42. 42 Laurence Zankowski Sep 3rd, 2013 at 7:26 pm

    Cyril, et al,

    Does Harley still have an investment in the Rotax company? If so, there is your 500cc engine.

    And there will be your “not made in America” motorcycle.


  43. 43 bart65 Sep 3rd, 2013 at 8:56 pm

    The poster “Zen” nailed it. Originally the idea was to move manufacturing offshore because it’s so environmentally damaging and America would move on to being a so-called clean tertiary economy ie: intellectual capital, example: software etc etc. This would be sold to dirty China and India. Unfortunately it’s not working to plan; American manufacturing is gone (along with all the machinery and know how) while China and India now turn out 1000 engineers to every American engineer….how long do you think the American intellectual/engineering advantage will abide with numbers like that?
    Can’t imagine if America had to re-arm again…they wouldn’t be able to do it as they no longer have the machinery and skilled manpower…that’s all in China now.
    ….blah blah blah….I’m gonna buy an Indian…it seems more American to me.

  44. 44 bart65 Sep 3rd, 2013 at 9:02 pm

    PS. Oh yeah, can’t run an air cooled engine anymore….some of these law makers should take a trip to Nigeria, China and a thousand other non-western countries and they’d realize that for every mg. of carbon they think they’re saving by banning a Harley air cooled motor these 3rd world hell holes are just smokin the countryside they live in….you don’t know what pollution is until you see that in the flesh I can tell you….never mind that the air that was over Sao Paulo 48 hours ago is now over Florida….don’t make me laugh…f’kin hood winked…

  45. 45 roscoe Sep 3rd, 2013 at 9:11 pm

    I wonder what all the HD guys are going to say now to brag about their bike?
    Lets see….
    Wont be able to use “Amercian Made”.
    Wont be able to use “Cuz it sounds like a like a motorcycle should”
    Wont be able to use “Cuz it doesn’t have of that unreliable electronics on it”
    Wont be able to use “Cuz I can fix it on the side of the road”
    Wont be able to use “Water cooling is just another thing to worry about”
    etc etc

    They are becoming more and more like Honda everyday!
    (not to piss off the Honda people)

  46. 46 Woody's Sep 3rd, 2013 at 10:04 pm

    Makes complete sense to make a foreign market harley IN that foreign market, you need to tailor the retail price to the local economy. But, if they think a foreign-made bike brought here to be marketed as a “full Harley family member” and actually accepted by anyone who respects or rides the brand, they’re nuts. Aermacchi, part II ? I hope not.

  47. 47 Highrider Sep 3rd, 2013 at 10:13 pm

  48. 48 Sharkey Sep 3rd, 2013 at 11:15 pm

    Most everyone world wide is far more loyal to their own wallet then to family, friends, neighbors or country…just the way it is…but some of us are just romantic fools. Still more American content in a Harley than in a Hyosung…

  49. 49 fxrocket Sep 4th, 2013 at 12:06 am

    I am very confused now. I just want to ride. 500cc id ride it and who cares where its made. you know what these younger generation is doing, riding. Its cool makes you smile. Why am I on here reading all this BS anyways. CYRIL love your blog hate the negative comments including mine. Im gonna go ride tomorrow and forget what I read tonight.

  50. 50 Terence Tory Sep 4th, 2013 at 12:42 am

    Fooge:Even in the deep south,guys that can’t read the trademarks Keihin and Showa on their Hogs should go back to school.(and ask the nice young school mam to do dem lettering thins for um).

    Harley-Davison should have registered as a legit religion decades ago.Pay no tax and wear bags over your head true in the knowledge that you are true in the knowledge,of knowledge.(I meant bandanas,not bags).

    Harley execs realize that selling replica vintage bikes to old white men is a sales road to nowhere,and they are just about stuck with them and change has got to occur somehow.

    Bart65,China will have more clean,low carbon cities well within twenty years than just about any other country on Earth.Re-arm,what for? They have just about run out of pointless,aimless wars to fight just to keep waning industrial stocks solvent.

    This picture is what its all about it seems: http://www.iamabiker.com/motorcycle-news-desk/2013/india-asia-specific-harley-davidson-spotted-testing/

    The bike is a V-twin and not a single,so I may have been wrong about it being a one lunger.

  51. 51 James just another crazy Kiwi Sep 4th, 2013 at 12:58 am

    Imagine a 500cc bike with a big hot single in a flat track style.
    It would be cool!!! make a liquid and air cooled one for different markets.

    There is enough negative enregy off many of the above remarks to to power
    a small country.

    GM,Ford,Chrysler,Toyota,Mazda,Volkswagen,Honda and lots of others make product in
    countries other than origin.

    Lighten up guys welcolme to the 21st century.
    Or the 20th for that matter.

    Free Trade is a good thing just please stop subsidising your
    farmers by 20 US billion a year so ours can go head to head on equal grounds with yours.

    We subsidise or protect NOTHING at all !!!!

    Be proud of what HD does and not negative about what you think they should do.

    I’m thinking seriously about a 14 Fat Bob ,you can change the rear guard thank god
    Only doing it to help your balance of payements problems…lol

  52. 52 faisal Sep 4th, 2013 at 1:09 am

    The biggest problem is that at Rs. 4 lakhs (Expected Price), the HD 500 is still twice as costly as the Royal Enfield flagship, Thunderbird 500.

  53. 53 calif phil Sep 4th, 2013 at 8:37 am

    Maybe Harley should name the bike Eagle Iron , remember in the 80’s when HD had the Chinese parts marketed as Eagle Iron so you could tell the good parts from the cheap junk.

  54. 54 fuji Sep 4th, 2013 at 9:27 am

    H-D is and always has been a luxury brand. H-D execs are deluding themselves if they think there is something as mass market luxury. If I were them, I’d try the hybrid route. Any Harley could use a couple of extra electric horses.

  56. 56 Boomer Sep 4th, 2013 at 1:07 pm

    So if Harley builds bikes in India; does that mean it’s an Indian Harley?

    Yeah, they probably won’t sell them here, the EPA here is just too crazy.

  57. 57 Highrider Sep 4th, 2013 at 6:01 pm

    This all goes back to lack of “Quality” we Americans allow to run our country, be it politicians, liberal school teachers, PC correct media and of course “Carpet Bagger Company management.

    Keep electing these people and we will continue down the road to nowhere.

    HD’s CEO is opposite of the old Harley Management , he has only 1 thing on his mind, well ok 2 make more money at all costs ( ok lets bully the factory workers and threaten to shut down their lively hood, make items cheap and cheaper in other countries ” labor exploitation”) AND look for large payouts from this work.

    The two types of posters on here , deeply represent the proud from the I don’t care personality.

    Can’t fix stupid.

    I treasure my TC, EVO and Shovel, as they are an adventure, the newer bikes are nice, but not the same.

    Tuff Spot for Americans. Wish I had a better answer!

  58. 58 Steve The Producer Johann Sep 4th, 2013 at 6:53 pm

    Zen, I have many friends who work for Boeing often labeled the LAZY B. I live about 5 miles south of the Everett plant. The reason it’s called the Lazy B is the following: for decades a good percentage of union workers do just as you do the bare minimum. They take off Monday and Tuesday by calling in sick (Fishing) then come in on weekend and get paid overtime to do the job they should have done on Monday and Tuesday. This has been going on for 30 plus years – long before they started to off load much of their work to subcontractor around the world.

    Boeing also uses every chance they have to export jobs from a Union state like Washington to a non union state like Kansas. They get Lower wages and same if not better quality work while keeping jobs in American.

    As for parts being made off shore and in American and not by company itself its called liability. Boeing, H-D, GM, Victory etc. can’t be held liable when a switch they didn’t make goes bad. Therefore having parts made by different companies spreads the risk to everyone thereby staving off the ambulance chasing lawyers.

    America is the most innovative country in the world unfortunately it also has a lot of lazy people who want it all while not willing to put in there all. Note, I’m not talking about all the great readers here only those people who work a 7 hour work day and charge for 8 or spend time on Facebook when they should be working!

    Oops I got off track from H-D building small cycles. I’ll step off my soap box now

    With future plans like these we should expect Elton John back for the 115th 🙂

    Nope, no Elton John. They already booked Miley Ray Cyrus for the 115th.

    @BobS Very daring, too many cops may have already booked her by then 😉

    I’ll be touring Asia this Fall. I would love to R&D one of these bikes!
