Not good news for Indian, sales down double digits! They're pricing themselves out of the market IMHO, time to get real on motorcycle prices. When you can buy an SUV with V6 or turbo 4, 4 doors, 4 wheel independent suspension, roof, hood, power liftgate, 2 heated power seats and 2 rear folding seats for the same price as a touring motorcycle something is out of wack!
HondaYup. Too many bikes priced over $20k. IMO, they need more bikes in the $13k and below range. But who wants to make a $500 profit, when they can make $5000 profit per bike?
What we're saying is comparable bikes are an easy 10k difference. Compare XCT to Roadmaster, Chieftain Elite to Magnum X1, etc., etc..Now, this talk about pricing and Victory's being "cheap" well, yes, base (and the base was well appointed) were good prices, and it seems that some accessories could be had with some dealing from some dealers in the early days. All good stuff. But, they could get pricey if the buyer wished.
Best example I have is my bike. The original owner paid just a hair over 28K out the door. But, he had every accessory and rack possible put on the bike, fenders, liners, stage one tune and exhaust, etc. I am grateful, but wouldn't have done it that way on a brand new bike from the dealer.
Yeah, I didn't miss that. My point was that it was possible to spend close to 30K on a Victory, which, for me is a lot. No matter what bike it addresses.What we're saying is comparable bikes are an easy 10k difference. Compare XCT to Roadmaster, Chieftain Elite to Magnum X1, etc., etc..
