Harley Davidson


The hard-working boys in blue over at the New Orleans Police Department (NOPD) Special Operations Division station have just received a new fleet of Harley-Davidson bikes to ring in the new year – and judging by the looks on their faces, pulling the next  speeding soul over has just become a liesure pursuit…literally. While we may …

With 2022 now well underway, racers worldwide are prepping for the track – and Harley-Davidson is no exception.  On top of Vance & Hines offering a contingency program (their largest yet) to select racers under certain conditions for American Flat Track (AFT), MotoAmerica, NHRA Drag Racing, and the Xtreme Drag Racing Association (XDA) Series, the …

If you put up your slipper in the Buckeye state, Harley Davidson’s got some news for you – they’re hiring, and the report from WKBN states that the Youngstown-based dealership will be looking to fill positions in anything from servicing to sales, parts and secretarial duties.  When the American motorcycle manufacturer came out with the …

Further, Faster…Lower? Just yesterday, we received word that Harley-Davidson’s new bike being revealed for January 26 was leaked – and unfortunately, no Bronx appears to be in sight.  At least, not from what we’ve found. We may as yet stand corrected on this, so sit tight and puzzle this one out with us. A report …

Who Do You Think Won? At this point, y’all know we dig a good drag race. Maybe it’s the friendly competition, maybe it’s the endless bickering and bets placed…maybe it’s the post-result snickers and “told you” vibes keeping energy light and sparky on a Friday morning. Regardless, we’re here for this and it’s going to …

Harley-Davidson has just peeked their 2022 lineup (or some of it) ahead of schedule, though we’re told that the “Further. Faster.” World Premiere Event will still happen on January 26 at 11:00 a.m. EST (10:00 a.m. CST). We’re told by the press release that the peek doesn’t include the limited edition models, nor the new …

Remember when Revzilla pitted the BMW R 1250 GS Adventure against the Pan America and the GS won? Well, we’ve found a team that begs to differ – and CycleWorld’s adamant that the Pan America trumped this particular ‘big-bore adventure shootout’ with room to spare. Before we dive in, I’ll again reference what I said …

An ancestral home of one of the four founding members of Harley-Davidson went up for sale- and she’s a beauty.  “Situated in the hamlet of Netherton near Aberlemno, Angus, Davidson Cottage was the first home of William C. Davidson, who went on to found Harley-Davidson after emigrating to the United States in the 19th century,” …

If Naughty Had a Name… AutoEvolution has just covered a bike project from the shop of Tommy and Sons – and if there were ever a perfect blend of ‘mean’ and ‘sophisticated’, this bike would fit the bill perfectly. The report states that the 2016 VRSCF required a nasty 280mm rear tire and conversion kit, …

When the UK stated that they would be cutting the very same grants that they had put out to encourage the masses toward electric travel, many were confused as hell – I know that I certainly was. It didn’t make sense – we even covered the reaction of Chief Executive of the Motorcycle Industry Association …

Revenge of the ‘Carbon’ators German bike shop Rod Squad has taken a Harley muscle machine and decked the thing out in carbon…plus a couple other nifty features.  The report from AutoEvolution states that many of this bike’s parts came from other shops such as “Roland Sands (riser, milled to fit a motogadget speedometer), Avon (tires), …

The Wingmen of Savannah & Abate of Georgia District 11 have traded in their reindeer for a handful of Harleys and Indians as they bring a boatload of toys for the kids at the Dwaine and Cynthia Willett Children’s Hospital.  “The reindeer…yes they’re getting ready for this weekend. I had to ride the Harley Davidson …

If there’s one thing I have huge respect for, it’s a brand that doesn’t seem to stop blazing forward – and if there was ever a brand that felt galvanised into radical evolution over the past few years, it’s Harley-Davidson.  We needn’t say much on the 2020 Hardwire Strategy that the American motorcycle manufacturer placed …

The world is full of amazing motorcycle brands, but I cannot think of a single other manufacturer that can claim to have a lifestyle. Is there any other brand of motorcycle in the world that has the level of global recognition of Harley Davidson? I cannot think of a single one. How did Harley-Davidson get …

Two Big-Bore Adventure Bikes Go Head To Head – Who Won? Revzilla has just completed a comparison of the BMW R 1250 GS and the Harley-Davidson Pan America in a ‘Trans-Atlantic Showdown’ – and the results weren’t even what they were expecting.  Before we get into it, we just need to say that the BMW …

Obi Wan Loves His Bikes – And You Should, Too It’s been a minute since Ewan MacGregor’s role as a Jedi Master in the Star Wars franchise catapulted the star to new heights of success.  With his current net worth sitting pretty around $50 million, the celebrity can afford to relax into one of his …

A mere six days have passed since Harley-Davidson went public with their LiveWire Brand. The American motorcycle manufacturer has been smart when it comes to placing multiple eggs in multiple baskets – and now, we’re told that a major investor in LiveWire’s public offering will be doing their own spinoff, similar to Harley’s. The report …

H-D’s Second Electric Brainchild Could Be A Budget-Friendly Middle-Weight Competitor When the LiveWire One was debuted, many adored the torquey tug and quality components – but at a sky’s-the-limit price of $29,799 USD (The post-2019 price dropped further but still hovered at a base MSRP of $21,999), the bike was beyond the reach of the …

Beyond the abundance of lush rolling fields, wooded valleys, heathland, and tors of England’s Devon countryside is a secret connected to the Normandy beaches of D-Day. That secret, locals insist, is heaps of buried Harley-Davidson military motorcycles (among other equipment) that were brought in when the vets of our country entered to train for what …

Harley-Davidson Bets On The New Gens…Should You? In a big bit of news that popped up Monday, Harley-Davidson is officially making their electric brand LiveWire One a publicly-traded entity valued at $1.7 Billion.  “If anything this underlines what we’ve been saying for a long time,” Roth Capital analyst Craig Irwin says. “Detroit, wake up! The …

Brothers Aaron and Shaun Guardado started up SMCO (Suicide Machine Co.) in 2010, spending their days selling merch and building custom competition motorcycles in Long Beach “to back up the brand and feed their appetite for racing and performance.”  It’s been eleven years, with most of the duo’s efforts realized in the form of Harley-Davidson …

Every once and a while, it’s worthwhile to travel somewhere new, walk toward a fresh set of ideas, and reset the old grey stuff upstairs.  For many in the Powersports industry, that reset came in the form of LA’s Autopia 2099 – “a new and dedicated EV event held at Optimist Studios in Los Angeles …

As if it weren’t enough that Ducati’s just come out with their heckin’ big DesertX and MV Agusta’s new teeny-bopper ADV is now spruced up in the form of a Lucky-Explorer 5.5 and 9.5 duo, Harley-Davidson’s now sitting hard on the (very recent, very new) release of their Pan America. How you ask? By launching …

Harley-Davidson’s golden child is taking a bit of a hit with this one.  Last week, a recall was issued by NHTSA (the U.S. Dept. of Transportation), stating that 2,689 units of the 2021 Harley-Davidson Pan America needed a quick stop at the chop shop for reparations. “The seat base may not be fastened properly, which …

Hold on to your apple bottoms – a custom shop has taken a Harley-Davidson Street Glide touchscreen with the installation of an iPad on the dash.  Let’s talk about it.  The report from AutoEvolution states that a tweak on a car to touchscreen via either Android AutoPlay or Apple CarPlay takes no more than a …

When Francisco Alí Manén of Lord Drake Kustoms (LDK) sent us this beauty in a press release just before the weekend, I admit I wasn’t sure what to expect (beyond the generic aesthetics of a ruggedly handsome Harley-Davidson Softail Standard, of course).  So when I got to opening the media package, the first thing out …

Harley-Davidson’s stocks are on the rise, and now that they don’t have to worry about sky-high taxes with the now-resolved EU Tariff Dispute, we’re taking a look at just how well Harley-Davidson is doing on the financial front – and we dug into the nitty-gritty details, just for you (as per usual).  (Note: many of …

Well, folks, the results of the 232 Tariff Dispute between the EU and US governments are in – and the H-D Press Release states that our beloved American motorcycle manufacturer is pretty happy about it.  Harley-Davidson’s excitement at saving millions comes in the form of a hearty ‘thank you’ to the US Administration for solving the 232-tariff …

With 2021’s United Nations Climate Change Conference UK now well underway, it’s only natural that such a large gathering would warrant safety patrolling.

Import Tariffs could cause taxes for +800cc bikes to be up by 56% – and while Harley Davidson‘s found themselves in a pickle, Indian Motorcycles is cool as a cucumber. Let’s talk about it. It’s no surprise to any of us that H-D has a few short-term decisions to sort out.  After all, the drama surrounding …

As if we didn’t see this one coming.  America’s beloved motorcycle manufacturer has just gone and dropped a commissioned custom LiveWire One – and the electric motorcycle will be built as a limited edition signature bike for the masses.  According to both AutoEvolution and Bike Exif, the custom job on Harley Davidson‘s first electric motorcycle …

A Russian shop by the name of Box39 has just done a heck of a number on this 2007 Harley-Davidson beauty – and we can’t get enough of that candy green.  “Do something your style.” Nothing is more attractive to a custom bike shop than when these words ring clear – and when Box39 received …

Harley Davidson’s founders are about to be given a singular honor on behalf of the citizens of America – and William S. Harley and brothers Arthur, Walter, and William A.

Since the release of the H-D Pan America and their sister brand ‘LiveWire,’ Harley Davidson has continued to lean on the details of their Hardwire Strategy, placed into effect in July of last year.
