Harley-Davidson Offers Students An Opportunity To Ride For College Credit

Harley-Davidson Offers Students An Opportunity To Ride For College Credit If you’re a student at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, you have the option of taking an elective course with the objective of learning to ride a motorcycle , specifically a Harley-Davidson Street 500. This class would have had way more practical real life application than the electives I took in college, namely Snowboarding and History of Rock & Roll. I might remember the lessons better than I remember my four years of Mandarin Chinese, as well.

Harley-Davidson has had some well-publicized troubles in its home market over the past few years, thanks to a change in ridership and the advancing age of many of its traditional customers. To combat that and help shore up profits, the oldest continually operating American motorcycle company is looking overseas, and we'll be damned if it isn't working, with sales up by 77% in Southeast Asia this quarter, Reuters reports.

Harley's financial troubles are nothing new, but its focus on other, non-US markets is. The company has pushed to gain more market share in China and the rest of Asia -- places where motorcycles are much more of a part of everyday life. The company's CEO Matt Levatich has stated in the past the company plans to eventually derive half of Harley's revenue from outside the US.

Harley-Davidson Eyeing European Production After All

Harley-Davidson Eyeing European Production After All Matt Levatich addresses the tariffs situation. When it announced that it would be moving part of its production abroad, Harley-Davidson’s early idea was to turn its Thailand factory into a hub for European exports. If that plan falls through, the Milwaukee brand could look into setting up shop in Europe. In an interview with CNBC, Harley CEO Matt Levatich talks about protecting their market and ensuring the company’s viability.

The increase in Asian market sales, plus an optimistic outlook for sales in the second half of 2019 were enough to send Harley's stock prices up by a not-inconsiderable 5.3%, according to Reuters. Of course, we're guessing that the increased sales that Harley is looking forward to are expected to come from the Livewire, its exciting new electric bike.

The Livewire situation is one that could honestly go either way for HD. The motorcycle is expensive, unlike any of its other bikes in terms of riding dynamics and performance, and of course it's electric -- though we did really like it when we had it out on the roads of Oregon. If its core demographic fails to embrace the model once the tech-savvy early adopters get their preorders, Harley's outlook could become less sunny in a hurry.

That scenario also plays out similarly if Harley is unable to attract younger riders to the brand in the near future as many of its current customers are approaching the age where they won't be able to ride, and Harley's bread-and-butter motorcycles -- the expensive, chrome-laden baggers -- aren't going to be attainable or relatable for younger riders.
