The iconic Harley-Davidsons are getting a makeover.
The brand sold off a quarter of its sales last year and its biggest U.S. dealers have closed shops, according to the National Retail Federation.
Honda has also announced that it is moving some of its dealers out of the country to the U.K. and Japan.
But the motorcycle maker is hoping to get a new lease on life with a new deal with a Canadian motorcycle retailer that includes more than 100,000 Harley-Devil motorcycles.
Harley-Davidon has sold more than 6 million Harley-davidson motorcycles since 2003.
The brand has sold millions of motorcycle parts and accessories in the U, U.N., the European Union, Canada and Australia, according the National Motorcycle Dealers Association.
The deal includes a 15-year dealer-to-dealer contract and a $1.5 billion payment to the federal government for its purchase of the Harley-devil brand.
It is the largest U.B.C. motorcycle dealer buyout in Canadian history.
Honda says the deal gives it a greater ability to sell parts and repair parts at lower prices than competitors, and is a win for Canadian dealers who want to compete with Harley- Davidson.
Under the deal, Harley- Davidson will be able to sell its motorcycle parts to its Canadian dealers through an arrangement called a “share of dealer,” which is a kind of contract that allows Honda to sell components to dealers in Canada, according a company spokesperson.
It also gives the dealers the right to sell to the Honda dealers parts made at Honda dealers.
That means the companies will be selling parts to Honda dealers at the same price as the parts that Honda will sell them at.
Hondas share of dealer with the UB.-C.N.A. deal will be set at $1 billion, but the total amount of money that Honda could get is far smaller than that.
While Honda is still going to have a stake in the business, its share of the market will be small compared with the rest of the auto and truckmakers.
We can’t go to the government and say, “Hey, we’re going to buy it all,” said Robert Meehan, president of the Canadian Motorcycle Association, the trade group for motorcycle dealers.
“I don’t think we’re looking at the whole business in a good way.”
Honda plans to offer a $50 discount to U.T.
B dealers that buy from the company’s U.L.A.-based dealership network, which is the UBA system for U.C.-B.
As part of the deal with U.U., the Canadian manufacturer will also offer a “dealer-to-$dealer” agreement with one or more Harley-DEVIL dealers.
The deal will cost Harley-DAVIDON dealers a combined $3.8 billion.
Harley Davidson is the second-largest motorcycle company in the world after Harley-Brent.
Its motorcycles have been around since the early 1970s.
Harley Davidson also sells parts to Harley-Towers and Harley-Mans, and its dealerships are located in Canada and the U.’s U.E.A., the United States.
The Canadian Motorcyclists Association says the agreement with Honda will help the company “get back on its feet.”
