Well, first of all owning a Harley is not just like buying any other motorcycle, it’s getting into a life style, and either you are a Harley guy Or you are not …
Harley’s do have a glamorous appeal towards them, the shinny chrome, the rumble, the thump, leathers and all .. if you want to embrace that then nothing beats a Harley.
Now let’s come to owning a HD in Pakistan.
We have come a long way and now it’s very easy to own and maintain a Harley in Pakistan, regardless of its model. Once you buy one you would find trained mechanics too and a easy supply of parts aswell (I can guide you) mind it Harley’s are very Tough bikes and only need Regular oil changes. Just to give an idea, it cost Rs 15-20k for a oil change kit (oil/filter/o-ring) for a 883 (depending on which oil u prefer) and Rs 1000-1500 to get it changed … and it lasts 3000-4000 Miles …
Also clutches DONT fry every 2500 kms but if one is a really really I mean really bad rider and rides while
Holding his clutch lever pulled half way .. and eventually cooks the clutch .. it would
Cost you Rs 35k - 45k to replace it on a 883 … and it’s easily available… and Yes there are trained mechanics who can do that.
This was just to give u an idea …
The real COST is not of maintenance, it’s the accessories and upgrades which give you a pinch .. Louder exhaust, better seats, brighter lights, taller handle bars etc etc etc… it’s a never ending story ..
So owning a Harley is just like owning any other super bike in Pakistan.. you just have decide are you a Harley Guy or not .. it’s not a Motorcycle.. it’s a Life Style ..
Also every other crusier out there is trying desperately to be a Harley-Davidson
