That's an interesting study. I'm not surprised at the best-rated brands...that's where my hard-earned's have always gone. Those numbers at the bottom, though...sheesh...not a good report for them.

LOL @ the bottom of the list. I am so not shocked at that.. I thought Harley would score lower TBH.

What the report does not show is of the 11,000 users interviewed is how many of each brand were identified? For Example, was it like 8000 HD owners and 3 yamaha owners? how does ti break down?

I don't think Consumer reports would be trying to skew the findings in one way or another, but I doubt of the 11k it was an even number for each brand.
