He said that the dealership hired a certified HD tech, and plan to sell a lot of used HD bikes beginning this Spring. Some buyers can't afford a new Vic, others just want a good deal on a used Harley. And every time a HD comes in for service, the owner is offered a ride on a Victory demo bike.

Interestingly, this is the second Vic dealer I've visited that uses this strategy. Employ a certified HD mechanic, undercut the nearest HD dealer on service prices, and offer free demo rides.

Should be interesting to see how this turns out.
Thats quite a strategy,funny thing is I was just checking used Harley prices online last night.....and yes,there are loads of used Harleys in my area
