Sad to see such a decline for an Iconic Brand!!! My guess is it’s only going to get worse before better.... SAD FACE...

No one knows where the bottom is, but I suspect we're not close yet.  Im really surprised we haven't seen more dealers closing.

Funny how the stock went up today as the loss was less than expected.

The extended warranty companies are keeping the doors open.

I think that a large part of the problem is their year-on-year price increases.  They would sell a whole lot more if they cut prices, not just on bikes, but on P&A as well. Super-high prices + well publicised reliability problems that are very expensive for out-of-warranty owners to fix are not a great business model.
