Gee, looks like them HD riders ain't even bright enough to know how bad they're getting boned.



Give them a decent product, some one on one attention, good financing and a wide spread dealer network, tons of accessories and trinkets, a ready made group of riding buddies in a factory/dealership sponsered group, things like BBQ's and Taco feeds, live bands in the parking lot and the stupid sum' *****es think they're getting a good deal....



pityfull fools.....

Meanwhile, at the average Japanese dealership:



"I see you're looking at the GSRZZX-600 Wakizashi. That's the hottest sportbike on the planet. Totally redesigned last year to be 0.05 seconds faster in the quarter-mile. Better hurry, though, it's about to become obsol-- oops, too late. It's junk."

You will of course note that Honda won the "best signage" catagory hands down.



I think Soiciro would have been proud of that.

You've got a good point, there. Sportbike manufacturers may be cannibalizing their own sales, much like the difference between Fords & Toyotas.



It's hard to justify buying a new Ford car because they depreciate so quickly.



Similarly, it's hard justify buying a used Toyota car because they depreciate so slowly.



Hence, buy Fords used and Toyotas new. Myself, I'm driving an American car I bought 2 years old for 63% off the original price.



Sportbike manufacturers may be shooting themselves in the foot, just like Ford. I have a better idea of how profitable cruisers can be.
