Do you know why Honda’s sell for less than Harley’s?

My observation, Honda’s cost far less to begin with – so when selling the price isn’t cut in half. All the Harley’s I see never sell because they are priced higher than new cars.

Why does a John Deere lawn mower cost more than an Troy Bilt? More than an Airens? More than a Toro?

Brand loyalty.

Why do Harley’s sell for so much? They can. Why do Honda’s sell for so little? They can.

People buy Harley motorcycles because they are Harley motorcycles. I would say a vast majority of Harley riders, when asked why they chose Harley, the first or second reason is because they love how they look, feel, or sound. They didn’t talk about how cheap it was, or how reliable it was, or how gas efficient it was. Basically said? Harley owners love Harley out of brand loyalty.

They like them just because. Due to that, people tend to spend more and more money to get what they want, and let logic take a back burner. Nothing wrong with it. (Generally people who are focusing on money, or efficiency will number crunch all of the metrics/data and be picky if any part of the bottom line is inflated.

If you really want it as badly as most Harley riders want their bike? They tend to overlook those subtlies and will spend what it takes to get their bike.)

If you usually buy Honda? You probably think Harley riders are stupid. That is because you most likely because you put cost, efficiency, etc higher on your priority list and just wanted to get on any bike that suited those needs.

Also it depends on who the manufacturer is targeting as their clientele. While I am sure Harley would love to get their hands into the new rider group of consumers, it isn’t their primary target. The middle aged, established, experienced rider, with loose pockets is their primary target. So because of that? Why would they sell their bikes for cheap, if they can sell the same product for expensive and people will still buy it?

It is just business. Honda on the other hand, has a clientele that is much larger, and a huge portion of it is around the newer riders. Fairly young, don’t have much money, will probably dump it so don’t want to spend much, also those who plan on riding it into the ground. So they put reliability and cost effective at the top of the priority list.

It won’t be all shiny, glitz, glamour, etc, but it will get the job done.
