(Neu-Isenburg, March 4th, 2020) It is one of the first major motorcycle trade fairs of every year and thousands of two-wheeler fans look forward to it. We're talking about " Motorcycles ", which takes place from March 5th to 8th in Dortmund's Westfalenhallen. Harley-Davidson is also among the exhibitors .
The American company will have a large stand in Hall 4 in 2020. In addition to its petrol-powered siblings for the coming season, the LiveWire is also on site, the first electrically powered motorcycle from a large-scale manufacturer. Touching and riding on all of these models is expressly encouraged - especially with the e-bike, as it is mounted on a driving simulator that gives an authentic impression of the impressive acceleration.
Of course, fans of customized motorcycles are also catered for: Eleven custom bikes can be admired at the Harley-Davidson stand - suggestions for your own conversions as well as material for dreaming and talking shop! The armada of individualized machines includes the German contribution to the world's largest dealer customizing contest "King of Kings", in which 18 Harley-Davidson dealers from twelve countries are currently taking part with their modified Harley Sportster models and a global one later this month Online voting will decide. The German competitor, a 1995 Harley Sportster, was extensively converted by Thunderbike Harley-Davidson Niederrhein. Of course, the authorized dealer based in Hamminkeln is also on site with a team and, like his colleagues from Bielefeld, Düsseldorf, Kamen, Cologne and Remscheid, is available to answer all questions about the brand and product.
The prototypes of the 2021 Pan America and Bronx models, which will be on display in Dortmund together with their new, liquid-cooled “Revolution Max” V2 engine, are also likely to be a topic of conversation. With them, Harley-Davidson, traditionally associated with choppers, cruisers and large touring machines, wants to penetrate the adventure tourer and streetfighter segments from the end of 2020.
The manufacturer, which has now been on the market for 117 years, combines numerous highlights for fans of the classic V2 with exciting innovations and future prospects for new target groups at its stand - a mix that should work!
