    NEW Bike prices post lockdown

    What will bike pricing do?
    Will dealers be feeling the pinch and offer big discounts to reap the serving and parts revenues downstream?
    Or will cashed up semi retired folk who’ve been fence sitting rush out and spend up on new gear?
    Nothing to see here...

    any discounts will likely be brought about to reduce their stock and get some cash flow as they simply try to stay afloat.

    Cashed up boomers may be the only saving grace for some companies.
    Damn those cashed up boomers.

    There are people who will be thinking about their future and decide it's time to do something for themselves.
    Interest rates are low. They were last time I looked.

    I work with a few people who have health issues. I am expecting them to maybe look at their future.l, make some changes. Shift, get a different job, buy a newer vehicle etc.

    I can see some discounting but not expecting a lot, the usual mid year sales are fast approaching.

    As JW says, it will be to keep afloat.

    I am waiting myself for a large order at work. The exchange rate may have put paid to that. It was put on hold just before the Lockdown 4 came into effect.
    It was all go just a day before....

    So many bikes to choose from.
    Pity we can't hire(or have enough of them in the shed) to suit our 'on the day' requirements

    The more interesting outcome may be 'what will the manufacturers do' I know KTM closed if factories early into the crisis due to collapsed supply chains. So all those car and bike factories will be cash strapped and super keen to move what vehicles they can out the factory door. They may offer incentives to distributors/retailers to kick start sales.
