The most iconic producer of motorcycle in the United States is Harley Davidson and it has been getting a lot of attention recently because of its plan to release an electric bike called Live Wire which is set to be released before the end of 2019. Fans of the brand are already looking for motorbike clothing sale to have a new wardrobe to match the new motorcycle which is expected to change Harley-Davidson’s history.
It is no secret that the motorcycle brand is not cheap but one of the things that fans have noticed with the upcoming LiveWire is that the supposed price tag of the electric bike will be almost $30,000. This is a high point for electric motorcycles because it is gaining more attention but with the entry coming from Harley it is expected to change the status of the current market.
While many are still waiting for the electric bike, another announcement from the company shook the entire industry. Harley said that it is going to manufacture small-displacement motorbikes with an engine capacity of 338 cc. This will be marketed in China and will be produced in partnership with Qianjiang Motorcycle Company Limited which is the sister company of Geely, the company known to be the owner of Volvo.
In order to achieve success with this new venture, Harley needs to court the Asian market especially the consumers in China. For the past few years, sales of motorcycles in United States are not looking great. Despite this, Harley is still feeling positive as it continues to profit from its motorbike sales. There is nothing catastrophic that is expected to happen in the near future but according to Matt Levatich, the CEO of Harvey, they are planning to gather half of their sales from outside the US market.
China is known to be the largest producer of motorcycles in the planet. Many of the riders are investing in motorbike clothing sale to make sure that they are riding safe and comfortable. With this, Harley plans to convert more Chinese consumers in using motorcycles manufactured from their brand as a starting point.
