A Brief History

Harley-Davidson Inc is a renowned motorcycle manufacturer of the USA and is abbreviated as Harley or H-D. During early 20th Century this company was founded in Milwaukee of Wisconsin, USA. One of the most important aspects of this brand is that it is one of the few motocycle manufacturers that survived the Great Depression. It is listed at NYSE as HOG, which was earlier listed as HDI. Harley Davidson solely sold heavyweight motorcycles, which were more than 700cc. One of the traditional features of the Harleys was excessive customization, which in fact led to chopper style of motorcycle. Most of the motorcycles present now have styles similar to classic Harley designs, except for Street model families and VRSC. The company, in the quest of diversification in the two wheel industry, tried to manufacture for light motorcycle market. However, it was a dud and the project was shelved in 1978.
