Wow, their US sales are in the toilet. Down 60% from last year, which already was a horrible year.

Sales in the Asian market increased which I assume would be small displacement and low profit bikes while the US market of higher profit cruisers was down considerably. I wonder if they include Star Motorcycles in that projection?
