We’re all here, obviously, because we love cars and bikes. But the great people who make up the car community—they’re just as much a reason to love our weird little niche as anything with wheels.
Earlier today we talked about how Harley-Davidson is in trouble because the only people who like and still buy their motorcycles seem to be old white men, which is a diminishing audience, according to actuarial tables at least. One commenter had a different theory.
Good morning! Welcome to The Morning Shift, your roundup of the auto news you crave, all in one place every weekday morning. Here are the important stories you need to know.
So you’ve heard Harley-Davidson has completely redesigned its cruisers and you’re wondering what the big deal is since the new Softails look like “every other Harley.” Here’s what these bikes are all about, and what they’re like to ride.
Last week we heard Harley-Davidson had completely revamped its core cruiser line with eight all-new Softail bikes for the 2018 model year. I’m riding almost every variant this week with some of the people who made them, so get your questions in now!
Harley is losing it with young people in America, and it’s not because the bikes are bad, as Regular Car Reviews explains. It’s because the bikes are un-ownable. They can’t escape the microcosm of Harley-Davidson the brand.
Perhaps, as a member of the common folk, my tastes are not quite as exquisite as those of the wealthy. I sometimes pronounce menu items wrong and I often stay away from foods I’ve never heard of, which means I am likely not affluent enough to enjoy the taste of $1,000 gin with motorcycle-engine parts in it.
The looming death-spiral of the motorcycle world and its dire need to lure in millennials has been a hot topic discussion as of late, and the issues are abundantly clear in the industry’s most well-known brand. According to Bloomberg, Harley-Davidson is witnessing a sharp decline in sales of just about everything…
President Donald Trump was set to visit Harley-Davidson’s Milwaukee factory to tour the facility and sign some executive orders this week. But in light of the protests around President Donald Trump’s effort to ban Muslim refugees from entering the U.S, a visit by Trump to the Motor Company is no longer happening,…
I know there’s a lot of development happening for autonomous cars, but I’m pretty sure that’s not what’s going on here. A black Harley with no rider cruising along down a long, lonely highway? That’s not science. That’s ghosts. G-g-g-ghosts.
I am a man of many vices, and near the top of that list is torque. It’s why I love V-twins and electric motors, and it’s also why a kind gentleman from Harley-Davidson had to give up his pants at a gas station.
The EPA says Harley-Davidson’s been selling upgrade parts at dealerships that push the motorcycles’ emissions over the legal limit. H-D maintains the mods were designed for “competition use only,” but has decided to settle with a $12 million fine and a $3 million forced investment in “pollution mitigation” rather than…
To help celebrate Captain America’s 75th anniversary down under, Marvel Comics and Harley-Davidson dealers in Australia and New Zealand teamed up to make a series of 25 custom motorcycles inspired by heroes and villains in the Marvel universe. The results are fantastic, and a terrible tease since none of the custom…
Iconic American motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson has been touting the “LiveWire” electric bike concept around for years. But only recently has the company committed to a timeline on production of anything like it.
For the first time in 44 years, Harley-Davison has an all-new racing machine for the sideways dirt-slinging shitstorm that is flat-track motorcycle racing: the XG750R.
To say that my daily Internet browsing gets a little weird is an understatement. Some days, that means I end up 473 pages in to an ADVRider thread and never figure out what those guys are talking about. Other times, it leads me to a site filled with the most beautiful bike porn I’ve ever seen.
I know, I never thought I would write those words either. But, luckily for us, Harley-Davidson doesn’t care what anyone expects them to do, because they do whatever the fuck they want. This is the Harley-Davidson 750 Stealth, and it looks awesome.
Harley-Davidson’s S models are the Motor Company’s equivalent of a “sport version.” These versions of the bikes get better components, more power, and special style bits so the guys at Bike Night will know yours isn’t like the rest. The Dyna Low Rider is the latest to get the S treatment. The result? It’s the Harley I…
