Harley-Davidson to Stop Producing Sidecars
Demand waning since introduction of trikes
The Motor Company has been producing sidecars since 1914 but Harley-Davidson will stop accepting orders for sidecars once it completes its 2011 model year orders.
According to Harley-Davidson, demand for sidecars declined following the introduction of the company’s Tri Glide and Steet Glide trikes.
Harley-Davidson sidecars are produced at the company’s Tomahawk, Wis., facility while the York Vehicle Operations facility has taken on production of the company’s Tri Glide Ultra and Street Glide models.
Harley-Davidson will continue to honor warranty repairs, supply parts and provide technical support for sidecar owners.
