CONTINUING TO GROW THE SPORT OF MOTORCYCLING, H-D DEBUTS HARLEY-DAVIDSON SNOW HILL CLIMB AT 2018 X GAMES

In an X Games first, Harley-Davidson® Snow Hill Climb will make its debut at X Games Aspen as a medaled event alongside ski, snowboard and other action-sports competitions. The new medal sport will close out X Games Aspen 2018, which airs January 25-28 on ESPN and ABC.

In the Harley-Davidson Snow Hill Climb, riders will race modified twin-cylinder motorcycles up the flat bottom of the SuperPipe course. In each heat, riders will line up side-by-side at the start line at the base of the SuperPipe for a head-to-head race. The first racer to ride the length of the SuperPipe and clear the finish line at the top will earn the “W.”

“For 115 years H-D riders from all walks of life have expressed their freedom from the seat of America’s favorite motorcycle, so it’s natural for us to continue to blaze trails – this time off the road and in the snow,” said Scott Beck, Harley-Davidson director of marketing.  “We’ve raced the ice and climbed virtually every kind of hill, and the Harley-Davidson Snow Hill Climb is another way for us to grow the sport of motorcycling. We know our riders, and X Games fans and athletes alike share a passion for adrenaline and speed.”

The gold-and-bronze-medal rounds of Harley-Davidson Snow Hill Climb will air January 28 at 10:45 p.m. ET live on ESPN. Preliminary rounds and qualifying will  stream live at 10:15 p.m. ET exclusively on facebook.com/harley-davidson.

POLARIS POSTS BIGGEST YEAR EVER IN AUSTRALIAN OFF- ROAD VEHICLE MARKET

Polaris bucked contracting overall market conditions and enjoyed record amounts of transference fromcompetitor ATV products to its range of 23 models with Roll Over Protection Structures (ROPS) in 2017to post the biggest year ever recorded by any brand in the history of the Australian off-road vehiclemarket.

Polaris recorded an industry record 6,583 retail sales in 2017 to post growth of nine percent in a marketwhich was down one percent to again be crowned Australia’s number one off-road vehicle brand,finishing a comprehensive 1,017 units and 4.5 market share points clear of its nearest rival, according todata released by industry data provider Potentiate. The US powersports giant closed out the year with29 percent market share, 2.6 market share points ahead of its record result in 2016.

The key growth vehicle for Polaris was undoubtedly its range of 23 models with ROPS, with Polarisgrowing sales of Ranger side x sides vehicles by 30 percent in 2017 to outpace even the record growth ofthe Australian side x side market (29.5 percent versus 2016) and post 43 percent share of the utility sidex side market. Also leading the charge for Polaris was the unique, single-seat, ROPS-equipped PolarisACE - its popularity reaching new heights with a staggering 52 percent sales growth versus 2016 andclearly outselling most competitor ATV models.

Polaris boasted five of the top 10 selling side x sides in 2017, with Ranger 1000 Diesel HD taking themantle as the number one selling side x side vehicle in Australia and Ranger 570 HD, Ranger 1000 andRanger 500 also featuring prominently.

And whilst the Australian agricultural ATV market experienced a significant 11 percent contraction in2017 as customers flocked to side x side and Polaris ACE models, Polaris still grew agricultural ATV salesby 21 percent – representing a positive swing of 32 per cent - on the back of the durability and versatilityof its impressive big bore ATV range, including the unique Polaris UTE and Australia’s biggest selling ATVmodel, the Sportsman 570.

“Polaris enjoyed 30 percent growth in a booming side x side market place in 2017, and at the same timebacked this up with 21 percent growth in a rapidly-shrinking ATV market – the only brand to growagricultural ATV sales,” said Alan Collins, Polaris Australia Country Manager.

“We have seen vast amounts of substitution over the past year as ATV customers have transferred enmasse to side x side and ACE products due to their capabilities and outstanding safety technology.Based on the fact that Polaris has simultaneously grown both its side x side and agricultural ATV sales,the majority of this transference has come from customers getting off competitor ATVs and onto aPolaris.”

2018 is also the 20-year anniversary of the Polaris Ranger and the company recently built its onemillionth Ranger vehicle.

“This pedigree certainly provides some context as to why we are the most trusted side x side brand inthe world,” Collins said.

“At the end of the day, we have an industry-leading range to meet evolving customer needs, headlinedby our 23 models with ROPS which becomes even more relevant when you consider the huge marketshift to side x side vehicles. People are voting with their wallets for the choice that Polaris offers.”

Polaris credits a combination of utility and safety technology as one of the key factors in the outstandinggrowth of its side x side business.

“Our Ranger line-up offers industry-leading features and capabilities which are relevant to Australianfarmers combined with safety technology such as certified ROPS, SpeedKey, seat belt interlock, sideneeds and 4-Wheel Descent Control. This is all supported by Polaris’ world-class engineering and know-how gained from two decades in the side x side business and back-up from a nationwide dealernetwork,” Collins said.
