S&S Slip Ons for M8 HD(R) Softail(R) Models NOW 50 STATE LEGAL!

By | General Posts

Same great product, now with CARB certification. Version for most new Softail models (Grand National is my favorite and they sound killer). ~ DZ

NEW –  S&S Grand National and Slash Cut Slip Ons for M8 HD® Softail® Models

S&S Cycle has been on the gas for six decades, with the last handful of years heavily focused on high performance exhaust systems. Their popular Grand National muffler line recently grew to include the latest generation of HD® Softail® models and they are now adding a lower dollar slash cut version as well. Why is an S&S slip on better? We asked the same question and they showed us their elaborate array of dynos, data acquisition tools and emissions lab. Add to that they are now CARB certified and warranty friendly. We like that almost as much as we do the legitimate v-twin exhaust note and healthy bump in Hp and torque (91Hp and 113lb/ft!). Available in show chrome or ceramic coated black for 2018-19 HD® Street Bob®, Low Rider®, Softail Slim®, Deluxe, Breakout®, Fat Boy® and Heritage® Classic.

Trump warms to Harley Davidson, says EU tariffs ‘unfair’

By | General Posts

WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump on Tuesday appeared to reverse course on Harley Davidson Inc, saying European tariffs facing the motorcycle manufacturer were “unfair” and vowing to reciprocate, after urging a boycott of the company last year amid a steel spat.

The Wisconsin-based company last year announced plans to move production of its motorcycles destined for the European Union to its overseas facilities from the United States to avoid EU tariffs imposed in response to Trump’s duties on steel and aluminum imports.

Trump retaliated by calling for higher taxes, threatening to lure foreign motorcycles to the United States, and backing a boycott of the iconic American motorcycle maker.

On Tuesday, Trump appeared more sympathetic, calling the EU tariffs “unfair” but giving no other details about any planned U.S. action in a tweet citing comments by a Fox Business Network host.

“So unfair to U.S. We will Reciprocate!” Trump wrote.

On Saturday, Trump is scheduled to travel to Wisconsin to hold a campaign rally as he seeks reelection in the 2020 presidential election.

Representatives for the White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment on any planned actions, as both the EU and the United States prepared to launch larger trade talks.

Representatives for Harley Davidson could not be immediately reached for comment on Trump’s tweet.

The company on Tuesday reported quarterly profit that surged past expectations and stuck to its full-year shipment forecasts amid concerns over falling U.S. sales and European import tariffs, sending its shares up 3 percent.

0 Units Of Harley Davidson Street 750 Sold In Feb 2019

By | General Posts

Harley Davidson was not able to sell even a single unit of their popular entry-level model in India during the month of February 2019 Harley Davidson’s Street 750 posted its worst sales number ever in the month of February 2019. The renowned American cruiser manufacturer was not able to sell 0 units of their entry level-offering Street 750 in the month of February 2019 and saw a 100 per cent drop in the YOY sales report.

Not only that, the HD Street Rod also did not get a single buyer during the same month. The Royal Enfield 650 twins’ popularity could be one of the main reasons for their decline in sales number. The Royal Enfield 650 twins are the cheapest twin cylinder motorcycle available in the market today and they offer the same amount of power and torque at almost half the price.

The price of the Harley Davidson Street 750 starts at around Rs 5.57 lakhs (ex-showroom) for the vivid black colour. The owners will have to spend an additional Rs 10,000 if they want to get their hands on any other single tone colour. On the other hand, the Royal Enfield Interceptor price starts at Rs 2.50 lakhs (ex-showroom) for the base variant and Rs 2.58 Lakhs for the dual tone and Rs 2.70 lakhs for the chrome shade.

The most expensive model which is the Continental GT 650 Chrome will cost you only Rs. 2.85 lakhs (ex-showroom). Just like the Street 750, the higher price is also the reason why the Street Rod too saw a massive drop in its sales number.

The Harley Davidson Street Rod is also priced at around Rs. 6.55 Lakhs (ex-showroom) while the buyers will have to spend Rs 6.81 Lakhs (ex-showroom) for the dual tone shade. If we compare their powertrains, both the Street 750 and the Street Rod 750 are powered by the same 749cc, High Output Revolution X V-Twin engine that produces around 47 bhp of peak power and 62 Nm of peak torque output at 4,000 rpm.

The engine is paired with a 6-speed gearbox. The 650 twins, on the other hand, is powered by a 648cc, twin cylinder motor that produces around 47 bhp of peak power and 52 Nm of peak torque. The engine is paired with a 6-speed gearbox as well with slip assist clutch as standard.
