Harley-Davidson Street 750 posted the worst ever sales number in the last month of 2018. The brand just posted 2 units in the sales chart and saw a 97% drop in the YoY sales report. Not just that, the Street Rod even got just 2 buyers during the same time frame. Most reports claim the rising demand for Royal Enfield Twins among buyers as getting a powerful motorcycle at just half the price can deflect the buyer interest from the entry-level Harley motorcycles. On the other hand, the deliveries for the 2019 model may also be on halt and these 2 units could be from the 2018 stock.
Harley-Davidson Street 750 is currently priced at INR 5.33 lakh. The motorcycle offers Vivid Black shade for this price as getting any other single tone colour will take the price up by INR 10,000 to INR 5.43 lakh. Not just that, buyers looking for a dual tone shade will need to spend INR 5.61 lakh as the ex-showroom price. On the other hand, Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 is priced at INR 2.50 lakh for the base, INR 2.58 lakh for the dual tone and INR 2.70 lakh for the chrome shade. The most expensive model from Royal Enfield is the chrome Continental GT 650 at INR 2.85 lakh.
The drop in number for Street Rod seems to have the same reason as the motorcycle is priced at INR 6.53 lakh and commands INR 6.81 lakh worth price tag for the dual tone shade option. Harley Davidson Iron 883 sold 29 units within the same period, clearly showing how the report of Twins effect may come out to be true for the American bike brand. The sales report for January 2019 will further clear all the facts and figures as Harley buyers will try getting deliveries in the first month of the year.
