Harley-Davidson Bows Out of Sidecar Sales

July 30, 2010
We probably should have seen this one coming. Because of a decline in retail demand for Harley-Davidson sidecars, which the Company says increased following the launch of the Harley-Davidson Tri-Glide family of trikes, Harley-Davidson has made the decision to exit the sidecar business. The Motor Company states it will end sidecar production upon completion of remaining 2011 model year orders. Effective immediately, no new sidecar orders will be taken.

Harley-Davidson says it will continue to support its dealer network and offer customer support for sidecar owners; current customers will continue to honor warranties and repairs, while supplying service parts and technical support. The sidecar was first made available to Harley-Davidson customers in 1914 and has been a big part of the Company's history.
