Assignment 2: Project Motorcycles Due Week 4 and worth 250 points
are a project manager for a medium-sized manufacturer of motorcycle
cruisers. The engines in motorcycle cruisers, like the ones you
manufacture, are usually categorized by size rather than the number of
cylinders. In the past, your company has successfully manufactured and
marketed the best-selling of these fuel-efficient cruisers that occupy
the middleweight class. The rather nebulous middleweight class comprises
motorcycles broadly ranging in engine size from 500 cubic centimeters,
or cc, to 1000 cc.
Executives at your company are now
interested in motorcycles with larger motors and would eventually like
to produce motorcycles in the touring class, specifically designed to
excel at covering long distances with motors larger than 1100 cc. The
proposed target market for these larger motorcycles consists of males
between the ages of 35 and 60 in global markets. Price points for the
larger motorcycles cover income ranges from $55,000 to $100,000.

herein within the next five (5) years. During the proposed changeover,
the company will continue to manufacture the middleweight cruisers to
serve its existing clientele.
