    Default Harley Davidson related question

    Hey guys ...a question came to my mind here it is ....

    " Do you think a Harley Davidson dealership will be a success in Pakistan particular in LAHORE "

    If Yes then...

    would it be profitable enough to carry on the dealership for a longer period ?

    I dont really think so.....It might be profitable but not really reasonably profitable.

    HONDA SUZUKI Harley Davidson .... will be succuess if they open their showrooms in Pakistan. Two days before my friend from karachi and the owner of BURNOUT Motorsports (Superbikes showroom) Fawad from Karachi imported 10 SBKS all are 2010 and 2011 model in which

    DUCATI 1198 Special edition with extra stuff
    2011 R1
    2011 R6
    2011 V-MAX
    2011 Gixer

    and many other sbks imported in which half of sbks already sold out yesturday. Before his last imported bikes (3 weeks before)

    2010 Harley Davidson
    2011 Gixers
    2010 R1z
    2010 Kawasaki 1000
    2010 ZX10R

    already sold!

    We have huge sbks enthusiasts around Pakistan. In Pakistan already many Harley Davidson V-ROD series in Lahore especially include 2009 Harley and 2010 harley-D VROD as well!

    If Harley can open in India then why cant in Pakistan. In india the bikes cost anything between Rs. 7 lakh and Rs. 35 lakh indian rupee.

    I am a big Harley lover, but personally I think that this idea will not be too much successful. I shall give reason below:
    Bikers in our country, like many other countries, are mad about the bikes that come with fairings. How many times have you seen a bigger road bike or a street fighter, let alone a cruiser?
    Harley comes from America, yet a big number of Americans do not prefer Harley for the several reasons, including one that Harleys are not too much reliable. I am a member of an American bike forum as well, not many like Harleys there, I even remember someone labelling it as "Yesterday's technology at tomorrow's price." Secondly, the Harley riders have a different image in the USA and you are considered different from the general public once you are riding a Harley, this is perhaps due to the historical background related to this bike when during the depression times Harleys were ridden by gangsters in the USA.
    Apart from all that, even though it might be a risky business I still think we need someone to think on these lines and perhaps it will change the 'biking' scene in Pakistan. Looking forward to see some Gilders, Fatboys, Low riders and of course Sportsters.

    yes your absolutely right this was exactly what i was thinking before but i changed my opinion from many different things i observed ;

    Firstly Why Harley would not be successful because of it starting price which would be above 12 lack.
    See this bike is to be for the upper class and i guess if u go to DHA ( lahore ) have a survey and look around how many cars are there which are priced above 25 lack or 18 lacks...okay count RX8 people can invest on cars having rotory engine or 350z this is a trend which is made in pakistan people are more towards buying a car ....'' buying a heavy bike why not to buy a sports car which is also save but this is some what fact "...
    What we need is on to change the trend ...and it will be changed if someone do little effort...

    If hayabusa , R1, CBR 1000 can be sold why not Harley!!...

    And WHY WE CANT SEE A BIKE LIKE HARLEY coz we dont have a show room here secondly people who go for import have to pay alot ..i have my 2 friends who have different models of Harley...

    All we need is a good invester and some marketing
