U.S. motorcycle sales by type

Harley-Davidson has been experiencing dwindling sales over the past years. Founded 110 years ago by William S. Harley, as well as Arthur, Walter and William A. Davidson, the Wisconsin company has established itself as one of the key brands on the global motorcycle market. The company is one of the biggest motorcycle manufacturers not only in the United States, but also in overseas markets: In 2019, more than 29,500 Harley-Davidson motorcycles were sold in the Asia-Pacific region. The company’s revenue from worldwide motorcycle sales came to around 5.36 billion U.S. dollars in 2019.

Indian Motorcycles, which was acquired by Polaris Industries in 2011, Yamaha and Honda are counted among Harley-Davidson’s closest rivals. These manufacturers produce many different motorcycle models, including sports bikes, touring motorcycles and street motorcycles.
