Harley Davidson Offering Rebates

Harley Davidson Offering Rebates on 2016 Motorcycles

Apr 17, 2017

Harley Davidson (HOG) will begin offering rebates on its 2016 motorcycles to retailers in the U.S. as an incentive to get them to shift a backlog that has limited sales of its latest motorcycles, Reuters reports.

Dealers are expecting the rare promotion to run until the end of this month and will likely pressure the company's margins for the first half of the year.

Demand for Harley's in the U.S. has slowed as baby boomers, the company's most loyal customers, age and competitors offer less expensive options, Reuters noted.

Honda updates CRF450R, CRF450RX, and CRF150R for 2018

Honda updates CRF450R, CRF450RX, and CRF150R for 2018

May 12, 2017


Honda just revealed several of their off-road competition motorcycles for the 2018 model year. After an all-new redesign for 2017, the highly successful CRF450R dirt bike and CRF450RX closed-course enduro racer receive weight-reducing updates for mid-year release. Electric starters with lithium-ion batteries now come standard, and kick-start levers have been eliminated. The lack of a backup kick-starter may make riders nervous in the event of a mechanical emergency, but Honda hopes the weight saved will result in seconds shaved. Meanwhile, Honda’s smallest competitive motocrossers, the CRF150R and CRF150R Expert, receive new graphics for 2018.
