Harley-Davidson is doing well according to its sales growth for Q1. Much of that growth comes from the Asia-Pacific region, and from the HD Street 750 and 500.



Harley-Davidson sold 57,415 units worldwide, a 5.8 percent increase over the 54,254 bikes it sold in the same period of 2013. Domestic growth is smaller though at 3.0% up from the similar 2013 figures.

The Asia-pacific region was a region of massive growth for the brand though. Dealers there sold 20.5% more motorcycles than in the first quarter of the previous year. Europe, Middle East and Africa as a region was next in line with an 8.2 % growth in sales. People in these regions have really been eating up the Street models. It is "by far on of the major growth factors for Harley."

Harley-Davidson also retains its leading position in the US for the 6th year in a row. It saw a 3.0% increase in sales in the first quarter, which translates to 35,730 motorcycles so far this year. Harley Davidson expects to see a 9% growth over 2013 sales in 2014. That would mean 285,000 motorcycles sold for the year.

A 20% growth in the Asia-Pacific region?! That is huge. I can't see how you could expect the growth to be any better than that. Remember that the Street has not gone on sale in many of the other regions. I bet that they will see consistent growth moving forward into the 2nd quarter as well.

Eh, 20% of next to nothing is still a small number. Compared to Honda, Harley's sales volume in Asia is lost in the rounding error.
