Harley Davidson 2nd Quarter Results Underwhelm Analysts

Harley Davidson have just released their Q2 results for 2023 and it isn’t great reading for those hoping for vast leaps forward. Mostly down in all data sets but being suspended by higher interest rate revenues.

Lightweight bike sales in China are not booming whilst pre order sales are thought to be better than expected for India, but local reports would suggest that the customer base in heading toward the Triumph 400cc bikes and still with the stalwart Royal Enfield.

Overall sales are stagnant or falling across most markets and the outlook isn’t looking too great either. The LiveWire company is making record losses too, whilst the company still hold their nerve and persevere with the project.

The signs have been daubed on the walls for some time as sales and revenues are being hit by higher inflation, weakened demand, higher stock levels at dealerships…bikes not selling, and the customer base either holding on to older bikes or looking for cheaper alternatives.

This just in from Harley Davidson…

“Harley-Davidson showed continued progress in delivery of our Hardwire strategy this quarter, despite the macro-economic conditions affecting both the business and our customers. Following the production suspension we experienced late in the quarter impacting motorcycle shipments, we achieved retail growth for the quarter in addition to a strong increase in gross margin,” said Jochen Zeitz, Chairman, President and CEO, Harley-Davidson. “We are confident in our ability to navigate near-term headwinds and remain optimistic on the future, most notably following the successful launch of our game-changing CVO’s and the highly attended gathering of our community during our anniversary year, reinforcing the enduring power of the brand.”

Revenue was down 4 percent, with global pricing partially offsetting unit declines. Parts & Accessories revenue was up 1 percent driven by improved digital efforts, while Apparel revenue was down 14 percent compared to a strong Q2 period last year, as the bulk of seasonal product sales occurred in Q2 last year, compared to Q1 of this year.Second quarter gross margin was up 4.0 points behind pricing, cost productivity, and shipment mix, more than offsetting the negative impacts from reduced volume and foreign currency. Second quarter operating income margin fell by 0.6 points due to higher operating expense, including higher people costs and marketing spend.Harley-Davidson Retail Motorcycle Sales

Global retail motorcycle sales in the second quarter were up 3 percent versus prior year. North America retail performance was up 1 percent, driven by strength in our core categories such as Grand American Touring and Cruiser, but offset by declines in the Sport motorcycle segment, following the discontinuation of legacy Sportster models in North America at the end of 2022. Growth in APAC was driven by continued strong demand across key markets, including Japan, China, and Australia. The decline in EMEA of 6 percent was primarily driven by a market exit and the planned unit mix shift towards the profitable core product segments. Growth in Latin America was driven by modest growth in Brazil partially offset by weakness in Mexico.Harley-Davidson Financial Services (HDFS) – Results

HDFS’ revenue was up $38 million in the second quarter, an increase of 19%, driven primarily by higher interest income and increased investment income. HDFS’ operating income decline of $27 million, or down 31 percent, was driven by higher interest expense and an increased provision for credit losses. The moderate increase in the provision for credit losses was driven by several factors relating to the current macroeconomic environment. Total quarter ending net finance receivables were $7.5 billion, which was up 6 percent versus prior year, driven primarily by an increase in wholesale receivables.LiveWire – Results

Further, the Company believes that HDFS’s retail credit losses will continue to change over time due to changing consumer credit behavior, macroeconomic conditions including the impact of inflation, and HDFS’ efforts to adjust underwriting criteria based on market and economic conditions, as well as actions that the Company has taken and could take that impact motorcycle values.

The Company’s operations, demand for its products, and its liquidity could be adversely impacted by work stoppages, facility closures, strikes, natural causes, widespread infectious disease, terrorism, war or other hostilities, including the conflict in Ukraine, or other factors.
