Why do the younger people prefer crotch rockets? In the United States I think Harley-Davidson needs to utilize a market development strategy for developing new uses for its current designs. Promote BRAG memberships and begin bigger, better rallies for Buell owners; get them excited about the brand.
That is one way to get memberships up, but plans need to be made to keep it that way. More time and money need to be put into research and development to figure out, not necessarily what females want, but what they physically need in order to have a safe and exciting ride.
Determine the strengths and weaknesses internally and analyze SWOT factors. Take annual bike week in Myrtle Beach, come to find out there are actually two because different cultures ride different bikes.
Here is an interesting thought. With the question being raised now more than ever about how to penetrate the younger targeted groups, BRAG may be the ticket to promote such an idea.
She never drove it however because the motorcycle was physically too heavy for her to operate. I would find ways to incorporate the green movement and associate them with the motorcycles.
Development and marketing in this area is neglected. The company was acquired by AMF Inc inbut the main focus was on short-term profits which inevitably sent consumers elsewhere and inVaughn Beals lead a leveraged buyout to get Harley-Davidson out from under AMF.
I would also be going to Myrtle Beach during performance week and find out what enthusiasts are looking for.
I would use the rising gas prices as an advantage to promote MPG. Finding of Fact 3: I would rather be in a class with persons who understand my concerns for being safe on the roadway. More and more sites are asking for participation in short surveys in exchange for being entered into a drawing.

I would also start exploring entry barriers for India and perform a cost benefit analysis. We already know half of Buell Blast purchases were from first time buyers and women. Focus is turning to smaller segments for women and younger generations.
Who is the biggest competitor in these markets and what do we need to do gain the competitive advantage? Tell us what you need to have done now!
William Harley and Arthur Davidson decided to design and build a motorcycle in One way would be to focus on social networking.
Buell was off to a good start inby producing the Buell Blast because it was not only considerably smaller, it was more light weight in comparison to the traditional heavyweight models and it was less expensive.
I believe Harley-Davidson needs to make more of a marketing effort to appeal to 20 something generation as well. I think Buell Motorcycle Company is missing out on a very important opportunity to provide their owners that unique experience.
I would also survey the employees. As Harley did, why not include one year membership with the purchase of every motorcycle? The first week is the traditional bike week and then there is a second one for enthusiasts who prefer performance. What changes would they like to see to encourage drivers from a new generation?
