This has been a busy week for Marvel and Harley with Captain America 2 hitting theaters in April. MPN Contributor Joel Martin went out to meet with one of the icons of the Marvel Universe Stan Lee.

Please visit MPN Magazine for the full article and releases on the Harley Davidson / Marvel Promotion for Captain America 2.

Harley-Davidson and Marvel LLC hosted a surprise, one hour "for the fans" engagement at Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier movie premier in Hollywood March 13, following the close of the red carpet. Fans at the event were spontaneously selected to walk and experience the official red carpet and to check out a brand new Street 750 motorcycle along with the stars of the film, who autographed the bike for charity.

In its continued partnership with Marvel Comics, Harley-Davidson's presence at the premiere included six Harley-Davidson motorcycles along the red carpet, where fans took pictures and interacted with actor and musician, Tyler Posey, the official Harley-Davidson commentator and host.

Captain America has been riding Harley-Davidson motorcycles since his introduction in 1941, and the latest chapter of the film saga is no different. This time, the superhero revs up a new Harley-Davidson Street 750 motorcycle when he returns to the screen to battle dark forces April 4, 2014.

To commemorate the premier, the company donated the autographed Street 750 motorcycle to Captain America: The Winter Soldier star Chris Evans to award to his charity of choice. Celebrities and influencers alike autographed the bike before heading into the premier.

Motorcycle sales up 3 percent in 2013, Scooter Sales Down according to MIC

Dealer News just broke the story which seems to confirm what we've been saying to dealers. The business of repairing and selling used scooters is the fastest growing segment of the industry due to the fact that fewer newer units are sold.

So the big news is compared to 2012 Scooter sales dropped 15.5% for the main Japanese brands (Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha) and Piaggio (Vespa/Aprilia/Piaggio) and Kymco. Since these are the only 7 out of 40 plus brands in the USA that report to the MIC.

Unless gas prices increase which is unlikely there will probably not be an increase in sales in 2014, but on the plus size it means better prices, more competitive units, and more repair work for dealers fixing used units.

Motorcycle sales up 3 percent in 2013, not counting scooters | Dealernews

For the full year, dual-sport, off-highway and street motorcycle sales posted a combined 3 percent increase for 2013 compared to 2012:
  • Dual-purpose sales ended the year at 32,979 units sold, up 7.8 percent (2,387 units) from 2012.
  • Off-highway motorcycle sales ended the year at 73,371 units sold, up 5.7 percent (3,976 units) from 2012.
  • Street motorcycle sales ended the year at 324,691 units sold, up 2 percent (6,485 units) from 2012.
Scooter sales dropped 15.5 percent from the previous year. Even though scooter sales represent only 7.4 percent of sales in the U.S., the decline was enough to keep growth of the combined two-wheel market at 1.4 percent. Brands monitored by the MIC sold 6,363 fewer scooters in 2013 than they did in 2012, when they posted a 7.7 percent gain over 2011.
