Watch the Two New Electric Harley-Davidson Concepts Get Thrashed in the Snow by Pro Athletes
Perhaps these scrappy concepts are closer to production than we thought.
Started in 2015, the Battle of the Kings (BOTK) custom build competition is the largest dealer custom bike build competition in the world. To recap,dealers must build a custom Harley-Davidson using a budget no bigger than half the cost of the original model with a specific quota of H-D aftermarket parts (50 percent being Genuine Motor Accessories). Builders can pick from three style categories—Dirt, Chop, and Race—using any model from the range (excluding trikes and CVO). Kinda strict, but the rules do work to ensure a level playing field and stimulating creativity from the builders too.

It's all in the details.
From there fans vote online for their favorite custom Harley (that’s where you come in). After the People’s Choice winners are announced, one US champion will be crowned at the Harley dealers’ meeting in August. The US champion then goes on to battle it out against the top international bikes for the title of Global Battle of the Kings champion. Winners score worldwide bragging rights, but also get an all-expenses-paid trip to the Milan Motorcycle Show where their bike will be on display for the world to see.
Now that the builds are complete, the public can go online at h-d.com/battleofthekings, check out the more than 40 rolling works of art, then vote for their favorite. Voting is open April 15 to May 15.
