Harley Promotion
« on: December 18, 2008, 12:07:19 AM »

Just got a Harley promotion in the mail that is pushing the new 09 touring bikes.  There are two cards in the package.  One is good for a FREE 100 years of Harley Davidson book when you demo ride a new touring bike.  The other card is good for 2009 miles of Shell V-Power Gasoline when you buy any new 2008 or 2009 H-D touring motorcycle. 

They need to do a lot more than this to get the bikes moving!

Who else got one?

Yup, I got one also.  Like you said, they'll need to come up with something one heck of a lot better than that if they really want to move some iron.

A coworker who rides a V-Star got one.  The gas card is good for less than $100 worth of gas at today's prices.   Most dealers don't have a clue, think it is selling as usual (no discounting).

Obviously the Mother Ship still thinks the consumers are all ignorant and can't figure out that 2009 miles of gas (not gallons) is a proverbial drop in the bucket.  And the book is nothing special, they handed those out like candy to all the 110 suckers buyers already.

Maybe when the spoiled stockholders start kicking some ass you will see some real marketing solutions, like maybe 0% loans or, God forbid, discounts.

They should start throwing in the 7yr ESP. Might restore some confidence with some, while still giving a decent discount! ;)

Excellent idea!!!!!  :2vrolijk_21:
If they advertised it as "we stand behind our quality product......etc." it could increase customer confidence and they could also advertise as the longest factory warranty in the market etc.
The cost to the MOCO would be deferred over the years and only be paid out in the event of a claim. I guess some loss due to no sale of the extended warranty. Not sure if the MOCO gets pure profit on that or if an underwriter third party company get majority of sale price?

 Here's the problem as I see it. First, the credit arm of Harley gave too many people loans
that couldn't afford the bikes. They were upside down, before they got out the door.
Second, people who want new bikes now, can't get loans because the banks & Harley
have tightened up loan requirements. Look at the housing & auto industries.
 Harley will NEVER sell as many bikes as in the past, neither will the auto industry. It's
a new world with the credit crunch. The people who CAN afford to buy will buy, but they will
take it in the shorts, with their trade in, or if they try to sell outright. The used car market
has TANKED, because of the same problem.

Yep.

That would go a long way towards resoring confidence.  Even if it was just a power train warranty.

I got one also.  Made me wonder if the local dealer would really let me take a new bike out for a test ride considering the depth of the snow and ice on the roads this weeks?   ???

Typical H-D.   :confused5:
