Harley Davidson Motorcycles
William Harley and Arthur Davidson opened their first factory in 1906. From humble beginnings in Milwaukee, USA, they have become the most recognised motorcycle brand in the world. Harley Davidson motorcycles are especially popular in South Africa. The wide open spaces of the Transvaal are perfect for exploring on two wheels.
Harley Davidson specialise in a style of motorbike known as choppers, also known as cruisers. They are low to the ground with a feet-forward riding style. Harley Davidson has resisted modernising the classic styling of their motorcycles. They are much heavier than many contemporary motorcycles, and therefore have slower acceleration. They do, however, possess a great power band that makes them a joy to ride. Because the rider is so close to the ground, they create a sensation of speed that is hard to beat.
You can buy Harley Davidson motorcycles in South Africa from a dealership in Johannesburg. You can also find used Harley Davidson motorcycles for as little as 80 000 ZAR. Because they are so loved by their owners, used Harley Davidsons are often in perfect condition.

The Future for Harley Davidson
The Harley Davidson brand has reached a crossroads. Does it stay with what it's famous for, classic motorcycles, or diversify? Motorcycle manufacturers face increasing competition from Chinese companies, whose motorbikes are cheaper and lack an eye catching marque. Harley Davidson will diversify into accessories, as well as clothing. Expect to see Harley Davidson logos on everything from iPhone cases to food and drink. The future is still bright for Harley Davidson. It's a name that says 'quality'.
