Know more about Harley-Davidson
Harley Davidson Motorcycles was founded by William S Harley and Arthur Davidson in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. As the brand originated in 1903, Harley has a rich timeline filled with ups and downs through various parts of history. Harley Davidson has survived the great depression and stands todays as highest selling performance bike brand of India.
It took them more than two decades to get this position as close competitors like Triumph and Indian are still miles away in India. They have a loyal fan following that keeps on increasing as new buyers enter this segment of motorcycling everyday around the world.
Harley-Davidson has an exclusive manufacturing and assembly plant in Haryana. Apart from this, every other manufacturing unit is located in the American continent. They are popular for high quality riding gear and merchandise like apparel, toys and home decor items.
Harley’s primary focus is on high displacement air cooled engines while recently, they showed interest in middleweight engines with liquid cooling for extensive city use. Street series started this new arm of Harley as all others are true to their original plan and follow strict big block engine use with heavier than life frames across the lineup.
William Harley and Arthur Davidson scrapped their first product due to lack of power to go uphill. This made the fact clear that they wanted the real power out of a motorcycle and not just a sideline performing engine that had limitations. The 116cc engine was scrapped for a bigger 405cc unit and the problem was solved.
Harley-Davidson motorcycles are known for their high torque values that are available in everyday riding rev range. Within just one decade, they moved above 1000cc engine capacity and surprised everyone with power that was never experienced before at that time. In 2018, the range of Harley motorcycles in India falls between INR 5.17 to INR 49.99 lakh.
