Every year about this time Harley-Davidson Australia has a run-out sale where you can bag a bargain from their current model stock to clear the showrooms for their new arrivals in October.
The 2017 models will be unveiled in Seattle in the first week of September and we will be there to ride them and give you all the details.
Meanwhile, Harley-Davidson Australia spokesperson David Turney says there are plenty of current model bargains to be had in their annal run-out sale across all of the Harley families – Street, Sportster, V-Rod, Dyna, Softail and Touring.
The exact details of the discounts and availability of stock will depend on what each dealer has, DT says.
Interested buyers can go to their local HD store or go online and leave their details so the dealer can contact them with a bargain list.
“There is an element of some people holding off for the new models,” DT says.
“It’s not something we know for sure, but we do this to encourage people to buy now because you don’t know what’s going to change.”
The big tip is that Harley will introduce 107 cubic-inch engines to their Touring range, but nothing has yet been confirmed.
The run-out sale is on until the end of September and is called “Catch them while you can”.
“It’s a guarantee that people will bag a bargain because the dealers don’t want to carry inventory into the new model year.
Harley-Davidson is the top road-bike company in the country in the first half of this year, carrying over from last year when they finally leapfrogged Honda.
DT says it looks like they are on course to stay on top of Honda in the second half of the year.
“We’re not so arrogant as to predict that, but we’re tracking in the right direction and hoping to retain the top spot.”
