Harley-Davidson dealers honored at Powersports Business’s Power 50

By Liz Keener

Orlando, Fla., Oct. 13—The editors of Powersports Business, the industry’s leading business-to-business trade magazine and a sister magazine to Thunder Press, announced the 2016 Power 50 dealerships tonight during an awards dinner at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.

Logan Powersports Group, a six-store dealership group with headquarters in Logan, West Virginia, was named the number one dealer in North America for the second consecutive year. Among its stores, Logan Powersports Group owns Mountain State Harley-Davidson in Delbarton, West Virginia.

“Despite economic headwinds that battered Logan’s local economy, Logan Powersports Group continued to stand out from the most competitive field of dealers in the Power 50 program’s four-year history,” said Powersports Business editor-in-chief Dave McMahon. “In true entrepreneurial fashion, Logan’s dealerships found effective ways to increase revenue and drive net profit to impressive increases.”

For the second year in a row, Logan Powersports Group acquired a new dealership location (Mountain State Harley-Davidson) to bring its total store count to six. A new state-of-the-art advanced tuning facility with a dyno machine was added at the Harley-Davidson dealership as well.

Group-wide sales of pre-owned units took a significant step forward, with some store locations selling up to 10 more used motorcycles per month compared to the previous year.

Logan Powersports Group was honored for its exceptional business practices in 2015. The group’s perseverance resonated with the Powersports Business editors, who judged the competition. West Virginia and eastern Kentucky have been affected greatly by layoffs that have not only hit the coal industry, but have trickled down to the entire community, as fewer resources are needed in the area. However, instead of throwing up their hands and pouting, Logan found several ways to continue to improve its customer service.

Logan Powersports Group dealerships carry Harley-Davidson, Polaris, and many other foreign brands. In addition to Mountain State Harley-Davidson, its stores include: Logan Motorcycle Sales in Logan, W.Va.; Hatfield McCoy Powersports in Belfry, Ky.; Keefer’s of Logan in Logan, W.Va.; Rt 119 Powersports in Danville, W.Va., and M&M Powersports in Staffordsville, Ky.

By being named the number one dealer for the second time, Logan Powersports Group enters the Power 50 Hall of Fame, joining GO AZ Motorcycles of Scottsdale, Arizona, in the club for exceptional powersports retailers.

The 2016 Power 50 top 5 dealers are as follows:

  1. Logan Powersports Group, Logan, West Virginia
  2. Freedom Powersports, Fort Worth, Texas
  3. Calculated Risk Motorcycle Group, Bedford, Texas
  4. Scottsdale Harley-Davidson, Scottsdale Arizona
  5. Hattiesburg Cycles, Hattiesburg, Mississippi

Scottsdale Harley-Davidson and Hattiesburg Cycles are single-location operations (though Scottsdale Harley-Davidson is a sister store to Southern Thunder Harley-Davidson and GO AZ Motorcycles).
