Unnamed investors to save Buell - October 31, 2009, 11:55 AM

Business Leaders Push to Save Buell

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has reported that business leaders in Walworth County, home of East-Troy, Wis.-based Buell Motorcycles, are trying to negotiate with parent company Harley-Davidson to save Buell and its 180 jobs in the county.
Fred Burkhardt, executive vice president of the Walworth County Economic Development Alliance, is working with unnamed investors in Chicago and Minneapolis to convince H-D to sell Buell, rather than close the company outright. Though Burkhardt has yet to make results of his negotiations public, multiple representatives at H-D have said Buell will close, nonetheless.

I have been by several Harley dealers and basically all the Buells are damn near sold out. I think its a marketing ploy to sell bikes. LOL

Marketing ploys don't include slashing your MSRP by $5000.... The only products that can support that kind of capital loss are things like Xbox and PS3 that make the money back on accessories and games.

That was only 1 Buell dealer that did that. Most places are still selling them for around what they were asking for before.

I went to Whitts harley in manassas. They are selling them for $7,000 soon but they say the rebates have not come out yet so they are still marked around $10,000. Whitts even has a brand new 2008 on the showroom. all over priced i think.
