Harley And Indian Tussle For The Tarmac

A Harley-Davidson motorcycle is a bit like a convertible roadster, it gives the owner that sort of wild, rebellious feeling that you either crave, or think you have earned after grinding away for 30 years somewhere.

While the big Harley cruisers are still selling well, they are losing market share to another golden oldie - the resurrected Indian brand.
John Tomlinson, an ITG Research analyst, estimated in a report that Harley’s quarterly U.S. retail sales fell as much as 7 percent to 32,995 motorcycles [in the first quarter]. That followed a report on Tuesday by David Macgregor, a Longbow Research analyst, that said Polaris Industries Inc.’s Indian brand had a strong quarter and probably cut into Harley’s market share.
