End of financial year, or EOFY, motorcycle sales are in full swing with thousands of dollars in savings and incentives across a variety of brands in Australia.
While these sales are the result of continuing poor sales, they are a boon for riders.
Some companies are offering direct discounts of thousands of dollars, others are offering free accessories and some are absorbing the on-road costs.
Of course, those riders who bought these discounted bikes at full whack will be the losers in these EOFY deals.
But if you are in the market for a new bike, now is the time to strike with most deals ending on June 30.
However, Harley-Davidson Australia and New Zealand isn’t officially launching their “Model Year Run Out” campaign until July 1.
Yet most Harley dealers are already offering the Street Rod at $9995 ride away ($NZ10,995) which is a $3000 saving and the Street Bob at $19,995 in both markets, saving $3500.
We have listed some of the EOFY discount offers, but you should ask in stores as most dealers are keen to do deals.
