A couple of weeks ago when HD decided to update the financial forecast and reduce the unit sales by 10k bikes people paniced. I still think they're in panic mode. Just how do economist and the rest of the educated world think that a company that sells motorcycles can sustain a 350k bike a year sales projection. It was smart for HD to redirect now. They will increase revenue no matter what happens to overall sales. The market shifted to high-end bikes in the 90's- now it's time for a shift again. The custom bike market will crash within the next 5 to 8 years. Companies like Titan, Big Dog and Vengence will be done within a decade. That will allow the market to re-align and less expensive bikes like the SV650 and VTX1300 will take major market shares again. The commuter generation of bike riders will be back and manufacturers of low-cost bikes will benifit (Look at Hyosung).
