Quizzy you have a different and valid point of view.
I remember there being stand alone dealerships, meaning they only sold one brand.
Now that trend has changed due to economics and the reasons you mention. Some brand choose to offer their innovative products to all of the customer base, while others do not.
As a Honda aficionado and indirect employee, I have learned its their way of doing business. (Quite successfully too) While some brand jump into new technologies, Honda is waiting pool side only occasionally dipping in their toes to test the market regarding new technology.
Millennials are a generation that is going to look for the easy way as long as its through technology. (Trust me, I live with one!)
Motorcycles are work to ride and own, which is why they really do not appeal to the average youth. On occasion you will get the right thinking parents to kick their kids outdoors and introduce them to motorcycling. That is really all you can hope for at this point.
