14:10 EDTPII, HOGHarley-Davidson hurt more than seems by Indian Motorcycles, says Raymond James
After analyzing the impact of Polaris’ (PII) launch of Indian Motorcycles through the first half of 2014, Raymond James notes that Harley-Davidson sold roughly 13x the number of bikes as Indian and Polaris' Victory brand combined. However, the firm thinks the launch of Indian is more impaction than the number would suggest,as Polaris.' U.S. retail sales of motorcycles jumped about 50%, while Harley-Davidson's U.S. retail motorcycle sales increased just 1.1% in the same period, according to the firm. Moreover, Harley-Davidson sells Street 500 bikes with smaller engines than any bike sold by Polaris, the firm stated. Excluding these bikes, Harley-Davidson's sales dropped by 1,200 units in 1H14, according to Raymond James, who keeps an Underperform rating on Harley-Davidson.

17:27 EDTHOGHarley-Davidson plans direct distribution to independent dealers in Canada
Harley-Davidson will transition to a model of direct distribution to independently owned dealers in Canada by July 31, 2017, when the company's current agreement ends with Deeley Harley-Davidson Canada, the exclusive distributor of Harley-Davidson products in Canada since 1973. The two companies are also in discussions about a possible agreement to move up the transition in Canadian operations to as early as the third quarter of 2015. As part of its global growth strategy, Harley-Davidson has largely migrated to a globally consistent model of direct distribution to independently owned dealers and, in recent years, has established direct distribution and operations in a number of its major markets including Brazil, Australia, Italy and the Scandinavian countries. Under direct distribution, the company manages sales to dealers, marketing, dealer recruitment and retail capabilities, consumer events and other aspects of its in-market activities, often through wholly-owned subsidiaries. Canada remains among the only markets operating through a third-party distributor arrangement.
