Thanks for the pics. That 2018 Fatboy looks awesome (not really into HD but credit where it's due) but 1,629,000 Baht?

 

They're about 650,000 in the US. That's crazy pricing.

What's the price in US got to do with prices here?

Great pics BBJ!
Last time I went to the show there were 'pretties' draping themselves all over the bikes.
Can't see even one in your pics.
Are they a thing of the past?

The government don't like it. But it's ok for 10 poor girls to get killed in the back of a truck.

I was at the press event.  The girls tend not to be there unless it's a manufacturer announcement and the doors being open to the public.  I usually ask them to stand to one side, politely of course, which they don't like.  Photos are ok.  All snaps from my Sony action camera.  Thanks though.

Dunno about anyone else that's visited but all the so called 'hotties' were a funny looking bunch, way too plastic, very bad look IMO.

Always preferred women myself.  Other than the plastic look, they've certainly toned the clothing down a little.

Harley will produce in Thailand. If you can wait, they will be a lot cheaper.

It highlights the amount that HD are overpricing their products in Thailand. Other imports are nowhere near 2.5 times the price so it appears HD are fleecing their customers. If you are considering one of their bikes in Thailand, it’s useful to know you are getting ripped off.

 

Why is it NOT relevant? Unless you are a brand loyal fanboy that is happy to get screwed by the HD corporation because you love the HD image.

 

 

Take it easy, the prices are due to import taxes and excise tax. Most of the Japanese bike makers, as well as Ducati, assemble their bikes in Thailand, which leads to lower taxes. Ducati produces here for the world market and only imports the engine and gearbox, AFIK.
