Harley-Davidson Has New Learn-to-Ride Programs

Getting More Folks Out There It’s no secret that Harley-Davidson needs more riders, so the company is focusing on getting new folks on motorcycles, specifically Harley bikes. The company has two new programs: “Experience the Ride” and “Learn to Ride.” The Experience the Ride program is for people who think they might be interested in riding but have never ventured to try it. It’s a short 90-minute program where participants will get some instruction from a professional coach and then ride a Har...

Custom Bikes Of The Week: Best of The No Show

The global pandemic hasn’t just shut down big events like Intermot and EICMA—a slew of grassroots custom shows have hit the pause button too. To help fill the void, Harley-Davidson put on The No Show, a weeklong Instagram-based showcase of top class builds. H-D pulled their entries from the canceled Mama Tried, Congregation and Born Free shows, with a few international wild cards in the mix, totaling 60 bikes from the USA and abroad. Each bike was posted to Harley’s Instagram account with a w...

COVID-19 rocked the auto industry, but the pandemic hasn't derailed the shift toward electric and self-driving cars. It's forging ahead.

The novel coronavirus has had a major impact on travel habits in recent months, but it won't have a profound impact on the future of electric and autonomous vehicles, industry experts told Business Insider. Autonomous-vehicle companies may add more limited-occupancy models to their lineups and increase their focus on deliveries, said Reilly Brennan, a partner at Trucks Venture Capital. And automakers may seek more partnerships related to electric-vehicle technology, but electric-vehicle adopti...

Harley-Davidson Loses its Spot in the S&P 500 Index

That Can’t Be a Good Sign It’s no secret that Harley-Davidson is struggling to make things work right now. The company recently filed for a new line of credit and it’s had a quarter after quarter of sales declines. I recently learned of some more bad news: as of June 22, 2020, Harley-Davidson will no longer be a part of the S&P 500 index.  The S&P 500 index is a stock market index that tracks the stock performance of the 500 biggest U.S companies that are in the stock market.

The Polaris Slingshot is a half-car, half-motorcycle, 3-wheeled mashup that costs $33,000 and can do 0-60 mph in 5 seconds

I tested a roughly $33,000 Polaris Slingshot R, a three-wheeled "autocycle." The three-wheeler category includes vehicles from Can-Am and Harley-Davidson, offering a motorcycle experience in a less demanding package. My Slingshot R had a new, Polaris-developed, 203-horsepower engine and an automatic transmission. In all but three US states, no motorcycle license is required to operate the Slingshot (New York, Massachusetts, and Alaska continue to require the motorcycle certification). The Slin...

61 Ways To Differentiate Your Brand

Everybody wants a brand that’s different. The irony of that statement is intentional. It belies the conservative manner in which most brands approach competitive difference. They say they want to be distinctive to consumers but often, in their heart of hearts, they actually want to align (read conform) with the rest of the industry. One of the key issues for that is an uncertainty on the part of brand makers and decision makers to find a starting point. In some ways that’s actually less diffi...

Triumph releases e-bicycle but no word on e-motorcycle debut

UK motorcycle manufacturer Triumph released an e-bicycle today, the Trekker GT — with 90 miles of riding range, a 250 watt motor and a 504 watt hour battery. With a five hour charge time, the bike weighs 52 pounds (24 kilograms) and can produce up to 60 Nm (or 29 ft-lbs) of torque. Triumph’s Trekker GT will be available for $3,750 at Triumph dealerships in the U.S. and abroad. The question is how this connects to the ultimate debut of a Triumph e-motorcycle. The manufacturer, which is a major gl...

Harley-Davidson Gets $350 Million 364-Day Credit Facility to Bolster Liquidity

To Cope With Challenges Harley-Davidson is a massive company and a lot of its assets are tied up. This means there might not be as much liquidity as the business would always like to have. To combat this issue, Harley recently took steps to get $350 million 364-day credit facility, according to an 8-K filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Auto Finance News reported on this fact. I first noticed the headline from Visordown, but that story is no longer accessible for some reason. Th...

Harley-Davidson Is Working on a Self-Balancing System

A Motorcycle Stands Alone Harley-Davidson may have a solution to the issue of motorcycle weight. According to some patents that were recently spotted by Cycle World, the company is working on a self-balancing system for its motorcycles. This makes sense. While Harley generally does a fantastic job of keeping the weight low and manageable, there’s no denying the bikes can get quite heavy. Weight isn’t much of an issue once you get moving, but at lower speeds, you can really feel it. That’s where...

Check Out Harley-Davidson’s New IRONe Limited Edition Balance Bikes

IRONe 16 and IRONe 12 Harley-Davidson may have a new corporate strategy moving forward, but it seems it’s not totally letting go of some of the new initiatives it started.

Harley and Jason Momoa Team Up for the ALL IN Challenge

Custom Bikes Of The Week: 24 May, 2020

Honda CB550 by Dustin Kott This chic Honda cafe racer scores major points on both balance and subtlety. It’s the work of Dustin Kott, who’s been building Japanese cafe racers for longer than most—so he’s had plenty of time to hone his craft.

Cake brings a Swedish take on e-motorcycle design to the US

Cake has crafted the Swedish edition of electric motorcycle design starting in the dirt. The Stockholm-based mobility startup’s debut, the Kalk OR, is a 150-pound, battery-powered two-wheeler engineered for agile off-road riding and available in a street-legal version. In appearance, Cake’s Kalk has a minimalist stance and doesn’t evoke “motorcycle” in any conventional sense. That was intentional, according to the company’s CEO, Stefan Ytterborn — a design aficionado and serial founder — who w...

Harley-Davidson Restarted Production, but it’s Limited

Wisconsin and Pennsylvania Get Rolling Harley-Davidson has been hurting, and the COVID-19 Pandemic didn’t help. There is hope. The company has a new CEO and it now has opened the production facilities in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania on a limited schedule. Obviously, Harley won’t be producing nearly the same number of motorcycles as they did pre-COVID-19, but it’s good to see the company restarting production.  It will focus on the best selling models and colors first. Harley will not be doing muc...

How Harley-Davidson killed itself

Harley-Davidson leveraged itself up the eyeballs as its brand tired and its business turned into a maze of protectionism and politics. Then the pandemic hit. "Most people blame me, the millennial," says Aneesh Shivaneker introducing a 14-minute, excellently-produced mini documentary. " ... but it wasn't me that let the poisoning happen. That started forty years ago."
