If Harley Davidson is the Titanic, the pandemic might just be that one big iceberg. Worse still, it had a hole in the hull and sputtering engines before all this even began. Damn. Is HD done for? [Details below]

  • You missed a step. HD's first response to Japanese bikes was to discontinue their lightweight bikes and replace them with Aermacchi Italian imports rebranded as Harleys.

  • Harley Davidson has essentially made an entire brand off of being an american rebel while turning its stores into an overpriced Walmart. You can walk in and buy a pre patched vest for 70 bucks and a shot glass for 20, both are made in China though. Don't forget to get your poker chip, that's like another 6 bucks. But you need all this crap in order to really enjoy your Harley. I mean if you can't advertise to every one your love for Harley with a jacket that costs an extra hundred bucks for a collar stamp harley symbol why even ride one?

  • Rather ironic calling it a "long march" because the real Long March turned out to be an astounding success because so many people got left behind they were ended up spreading communist influence so when the revolution came about, Mao had support from all the towns, villages and cities they past through. Not to mention Mao covered up the real reason behind the Long March, a retreat, as a journey to fight the Javanese invaders in North Eastern China. Maybe this "long march" of Harley will work, making motorcycles more accessible to a younger demographic and providing them with incremental "upgrades" to bigger bikes, steering them to "American Steel" in the process.

Naw...there really killing them self...

  • Harleys are a (fading) niche market. Their customers are boomers, wannabe badasses and...??? Other brands sell commuters, adventure bikes, sportbikes, cruisers, quads, tourers and more. I ride BMWs because they're enthusiast bikes and ergonomic; not loud, hard to pilot or hard to service.

  • This is so far removed from Arthur Davidson's family and cultural roots in a wee hoose (sic) in the tiny village of Aberlemno (near Brechin, Angus, Scotland - famous for Pictish symbol stones that are the equivalent of 1,500 year old totem poles) that it never ceases to astound me that he had the vision to do what he did. Yet, I suppose there's more to life than being either a shepherd or ten bob a week 'teuchter' ploughman, although clearly, as this video suggests, any such greater ambitions are clearly temporal.

Took me back to an earlier time in two-wheeling. But the price... it wasn't worth it. It's sad to see them in their death throes, but of they aren't going to take care of their customers, they deserve this fate. RIP HD

  • Pay attention to the H-D ads on the radio or on TV - all they talk about is "image" and "lifestyle". The reason? They don't have a real motorcycle to sell. Harleys are underpowered, lousy handling, lousy brakes, overweight, and overpriced. You can get mre power by spending thousands in stage I, II, III, or IV upgrades, but it won't fix the other problems. H-D will probably survive, but as a shadow of its former self, as their sales numbers tank - that "image" doesn;'t sell any more.

  • Very accurate. I believe Harley is definitely on a downward trend and will be in a place where no one will see, hear, or think of them again. That place is called “Oblivion”. Harleys are heavy and not really powerful . I can outrun, out turn and out brake a Harley 1000cc bike with an SV650. If Harley was to create a bike like the Triumph Trident for beginner riders, they may have a chance. If Harley kept Buell, they may be in a better position as they are today. As a half centurion myself, Triumph, Ducati, Suzuki and BMW has caught my eye. I hope Harley can turn themselves around. They currently are an American icon.

Two different dealerships and both dealerships were absolute ridiculous stupid idiots and the only reason they sold a motorcycle was because they had a pen for me to sign with. So I don't mind that they're in Decline. They were so arrogant it was ridiculous.

  • As a millennial and someone who's not rich, I'd never consider buying a Harley-Davidson. I've only seen them as bikes for folks with money to burn and who only care about your image. I had a Honda Shadow 600 VLX with unbeatable reliability and it was a fraction of what a equivalent Harley would have cost. Unless Harley-Davidson offers an affordable bike to attract new riders, they're dead in the water. I've never ridden a Harley (probably the only brand I haven't tried) so maybe I'm missing something that justifies the high price tag.

  • Buell was an interesting use of a V-Twin on a roadster but for whatever reason, it never seemed to convince the North American market. It has to be said bikers can be horribly conventional too. The biggest seller in Europe was probably the Suzuki Bandit on both 600cc and 1200cc versions at the time. When Yamaha released the BT-1100 Bulldog (V-Twin), no one bought it; when they released the awesome 1700cc V-Twin powered MT-01, again no one bought it. Most bikers wants - it is a sad fact - an emotion less, vibration less linear 4 cylinders motorbike. Then you have insurance companies which make certain types of bikes utterly impossible to afford. Harley Davidson would be one of these. I might have bought a 1200cc Harley roadster or Cafe Racer, had Harley Davidson hired a designer older than 5yo... HD SUCKS at designing anything that is not a chopper. Take the laughable PanAmerica and Street Fighter or even the remarkably bland Livewire... these bikes looked outdated from the get go. And then there is the price tag, cost of running and servicing, an array of reliability issues. Harley is super expensive for a plasticky bike which technology dates from the 50s. I could buy a combo of brand new Yamaha Tenere 700 plus BMW R9T with the money required to buy a one trick pony Fat Boy. Then there is the credentials, everybody loves a bit of creds. The Japanese and most European brands have plenty of creds in motorsport whether it is enduro, adventure, MotoGP, Superbike, TT, Motocross, etc. To be fair it is not just Harley, I would not buy an Adventure bike from Triumph, Ducati or Moto Guzzi either. HD badge is mostly gang related and they have no creds so clearly you cannot associate the brand with anything young, fun and modern. Even in my 40yo crisis buying an HD never crossed my mind and that would be their biggest chance to reach anyone outside their typical clientele.

  • Regardless of tariffs and profit and share manipulation , the bottom line is HD make shit bikes that are unreliable and way overpriced. I for one would love to see them collapse because it’s obvious they only care about the bottom line. I own two metric bikes. My Boulevarde is a great bike. It does more than a HD can do for less than a third of the price. The only people who can’t see that are the ones that are so blindly loyal they refuse to see the world around them.

But, buying, owning or riding a HD has never been in my mindset since taking on riding. Maybe when I was 10.. I evenly wanted a HD or a Gsxr1000.. but now. No way. The reliability, smoothness, quality, new tech, innovation, desings etc.. that's in their competition.. then 10 to 15 yrs ago and now just makes them look lost as a company. I sat on a 07 HD Ulta Glide after idle of 10 mins, the heat from the engine and whole damn thing shaking from the grips to pegs.. just makes me go wtf.. who likes this??

After that I subscribed to Motorcycle Consumer News (now defunct) and learned about what the rest of motorcycling was all about. Since then I just can't seem to find a way to like Harley's. I thought maybe the Live Wire might help them come into the new century. Buy your talk included that bike too. Too sad.

  • That corporate BS at 11:17 is flawed from the start. They didn't have a mindset of building great motorcycles. They were coasting on douchey imagery that only delusional Boomers actually bought in to. When a corporation abandons its core principles (moot point here) to just saying, nakedly, that it sees customers as resources (what else does a goal of "building committed riders" really mean?) then it is on borrowed time. This actually *IS* their own losing strategy and they are breathing their own exhaust fumes. They were already at the stage of relying on "committed riders" who bought their crappy, overpriced products by being committed to some cringy, self-deluded image when they should be been moving *TO* building great motorcycles.

Every motorcyclist who doesn't ride a hd motorcycle has expierenced some sort of crude behavior from a hd cultist simply because hd cultist gain an ego and treat other motorcyclist as inferior for not owning a harley davidson motorcycle. The company did try to market to the sport bike consumers but even at that the hd cult rejected it. The majority of hd cult killed the brand by making it as a social status and used that status to step on others. Now that harley davidson has a bad rep in the motorcycle world. The people with the same mentality do this with japanese hypersport bikes or trackriding.

Heck, I'd say it was biggest issues. They sell you a great bike, then you stood in a building filled with custom bike parts, & shown six pages of a catalog with part's they might be able to order for yours.... It's was SO frustrating! But no worries if you could get past that! After all, once you've bitten the bullet & spent the money. Well, at that point you come to realize that you'd just PAID for the whole red headed step child vs abusive drunk dad experience.....

  • As a millennial, I can absolutely concur that Harleys are distinctly uncool. They have a reputation of being loud, rough, unrefined, brash, and just overall obnoxious. The snobbery pressure I experience every time I walk into a Harley dealer is uncanny. On the flip side (literally right across the street in my case), there's an Indian dealer that's super chill and lets people check out bikes on their own time without getting a salesman all up in their business the second they walk in the door. It's a MUCH better browsing experience for sure and the bikes are better for the same price too.
