Triumph sold 63,404 motorcycles

December 18, 2017

Triumph sold 63,404 motorcycles in 2017



With increased turnover, vastly improved earnings and over 7000 more bikes sold in 2017 than 2016, the report published from Triumph outlining their financial earnings should have the rest of the industry looking over their shoulders.

Harley-Davidson to Launch Electric Motorcycle

Harley-Davidson to Launch Electric Motorcycle Within 18 Months, Kansas City Plant to Close

01/30/2018

Harley-Davidson's fourth-quarter earnings report was a good news, bad news situation. The bad news, according to the Milwaukee Business Journal, is that 2017 sales were down 6.7 percent worldwide, and 8.5 percent in the U.S., which has typically been H-D's stronghold. The motorcycle company will also be closing its Kansas City, Missouri plant and rolling operations into its York, Pennsylvania plant. Sales drops and layoffs have sadly become a trend for H-D.

But there is a silver, or rather an electric lining to the story. Harley-Davidson also announced that it is just 18 months away from releasing its first production electric motorcycle. This is much sooner than the 2021 and "eventually" release dates previously announced.

Trump threatens 'reciprocal tax' on motorcycles imported from India

Trump threatens 'reciprocal tax' on motorcycles imported from India

February 14, 2018

Not enough, he says on India reducing duty on motorcycles; unhappy with high import tariffs on Harley-Davidson

President Donald Trump on Tuesday brought up the high import duty in India on the Harley-Davidson motorcycles as an example of unfair trade and threatened to increase the import tariff on "thousands and thousands" of Indian motorcycles to the US. Mr. Trump had raised Harley-Davidson in March 2017 in his first address to the U.S Congress, and several other administration officials have cited the example subsequently in discussions on their 'America First' policy.
