It has to do with quantities. Auto industry makes huge quantities but motorcycle industry quantities are very small.M109Rican said:Is not just the saddle bags, almost ALL motorcycle accessories that I have seen are ridiculously expensive, and I have a few examples; we all know that it is cheaper to put a new set of Hooker headers with Flowmaster pipes and mufflers on a V-8,(I personally know this as I did it on my Camaro) than getting new pipes on some bikes and let`s not forget about the seats, some Corbin or Mustang seats will run you as much as a whole living room set and I know it is not because manufacturing cost.Â Personally, I have always wondered why it is cheaper to get a set of 20" CRHOME wheels/tires maybe even with spinners, than it is to get just 2 custom rims on a bike and I am not even including the tires on this price comparison. If there are any skeptics that don`t believe this, do some research and see for yourself. :bigthumbsup:
I would say quantity is 75%HalGreenlee said:It has to do with quantities. Auto industry makes huge quantities but motorcycle industry quantities are very small.
