A 13,000 dollar bike here, is sold for 13,000 euro over there. So no, your not going to get the same bike for 8,000 euro just because the exchange rate is different. Just like a Ferrari in europe is sold for 200,000 Euro, in America it is sold for 200,000 Dollars. its global economics.
There is a slight flaw in your reasoning: "Average gross domestic product (GDP) in the US is about 40% higher than average GDP of the EU-15 when measured at purchasing power parity (PPP). " (http://www.thenewfederalist.eu/Europ...e-Economy-Wins)

The price difference comes from taxes. Harleys are expensive in the US. Therefore, they are ridiculously expensive when shipped to other countries. Almost everything made in the US is overpriced in EU.
