Lehman Trikes, a company that has been making very high quality trikes using motorcycles from many different manufacturers, has scored a big one. Evidently their workmanship impressed Harley Davidson to the point where the two companies have entered into an agreement to sell the trikes directly through the HD dealer network with the Harley Davidson brand name, making the Lehman trikes a branded HD product.
Since there has been a lot of discussion about how many riders in the Harley demographic are getting up in years and perhaps more likely to be looking at trikes as an option, this seems to be a good fit for the Motor Company.
Harley Davidson press release follows:
MILWAUKEE (September 1, 2006) – Harley-Davidson Motor Company today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Lehman Trikes U.S.A., Inc. of Spearfish, S.D., for the development of three-wheeled vehicles, commonly referred to as “trikes.”
Plans call for trikes to be developed around a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle product platform and sold as original equipment branded Harley-Davidson vehicles through authorized Harley-Davidson dealers. The Company has not announced the timing or other details of the product introduction.
“Trikes are another way we can inspire the dream of owning a Harley-Davidson,” said Harley-Davidson Vice President Ron Hutchinson. “Harley-Davidson continues to aggressively develop new products. We expect trikes to expand the appeal of our products to those who prefer either the styling or experience of three-wheeled riding,” Hutchinson said.
Lehman Trikes U.S.A. is a subsidiary of Lehman Trikes, Inc. of Canada, a recognized leader in the trike business for more than 20 years.
