Harley Davidson marks 110th birthday with motorcycles that pack raw power and cutting edge tech

The “potato-potato” thump of engines has been around for quite a while now, to be precise, 11 glorious decades, and to celebrate its 110th year of existence, the iconic motorcycle brand Harley Davidson has unveiled eight one-of-a-kind bikes and trikes, all reworked upon under the name Project Rushmore. These bikes come with big liquid-cooled engines and touch-screen electronics, staying macho yet somewhat geeky at the same time! This is the largest new model launch in Harley’s history, and the bikes will be first shown off at an unveiling in Milwaukee. These bikes include the Road King, Street Glide, Street Glide Special, Electra Glide Ultra Classic, Ultra Limited, Tri Glide Ultra, CVO Ultra Limited, and CVO Road King.

These motorcycles are the first under a product-development initiative that was announced four years ago with hopes to bring new technology to the world of hogs. The new bikes include integrated front and rear anti-lock brakes, integrated audio, communications, navigation, and vehicle information in a single electronic touch screen, five-way joysticks on the left and right motorcycle hand controls, and a plush seat. Harley Davidson hasn’t specified the prices of these bikes, however, though we do hope to hear more up ahead.
