Vtx not selling

Honda East Toledo OH
New - 2003 Silver 1800R 8000.00 (my choice) or they had a New 2003 Black C for 7600.00 .

I had a 2001 Sabre 1100 but luv the VTX.

Salesman told me they over produced for the europen market. Seems the 1300's sold better there. They were selling them all over. They had shipped to california and overseas also ?

Bigger always better ? See the rocket >

With all the price reductions and deals, I'm afraid to even look what the 02 1800R of mine is worth. Guess I ought to ride out to the dealer and see how much I would have to pay him to trade it in on a new one.

KY-XR makes a good point. Perhaps it was soft sales that resulted in the excess of VTX 1800s in 2003. Makes sense to me since that market would be slower to react to a newer cruiser. And, the HD brand has even more loyalty there for cruisers. I wonder if Teta has any insight on this? Or another European VTX member?


You laugh at me because I'm different. I laugh at you 'cause you're all the same!!!

2002 VTX 1800S in Pearl Orange!
