The Return of the Rebellious Low Rider® ; Tour-Ready SuperLow™ 1200T Revealed
CONCORD, ON, March 6, 2014 /CNW/ - Harley-Davidson (NYSE: HOG) is at it
again. Fresh off the unveiling of the new Harley-Davidson® Street™ 750 model and the launch of Project RUSHMORE, the Company
unleashed today two new motorcycles that expand its diverse lineup of
street bikes, and put more models for more riders on the showroom floor
of each Harley-Davidson® Retailer.

110-year history and keeps the throttle pinned on the company's
accelerated, Customer-led product-development process.

spirit that they want infused in each and every new Harley motorcycle."
