Harley-Davidson just revealed the most important new motorcycle in its history — and it isn't electric

Harley-Davidson just revealed the most important new motorcycle in its history — and it isn't electric Harley-Davidson announced that it's partnering with a Chinese manufacturer to build a small-displacement motorcycle for the Asian market. The bike, at 338cc, would be much smaller than Harley's smallest US product. Harley CEO Matt Levatich has set a goal for international sales to make up half of the company's total. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Harley-Davidson, the iconic American motorcycle manufacturer, has been generating buzz the past few years with its LiveWire electric bike, slated to launch later in 2019.

Harley-Davidson motorcycles gained quite a reputation in the years following World War II. Synonymous with loud exhaust, leather chaps, and bar brawls, Harley riders have fostered an image of rebellion. In post-war America, where conformity was of the highest value, tattoos also represented rebellious behavior and permeated the same subcultures as Harleys. To celebrate this intersection, Polish custom shop Game Over Cycles created the world’s first tattooed motorcycleThe Recidivist.

Trademark Hints At Future Harley Bareknuckle Streetfighter

Trademark Hints At Future Harley Bareknuckle Streetfighter Looks like there's a H-D streetfighter coming. Oh! It’s been a while since we’ve had a trademark to chew on and to spin off a few more and less silly theories from. This time, instead of yet another Indian trademark, we’re treated to a Harley-Davidson one. This one could hint at one of the brand’s promised upcoming models. The Plan is On Track:Harley-Davidson Confirms 338cc Model Heading To ChinaFive Millionth Harley-Davidson Rolls Off The York Assembly Line Same time last year, Harley-Davidson shook the industry with a big announcement regarding its plans for the future.

We know it was a Triumph, and that it was owned by a guy named Bob Aquistapase before Big Daddy got hold of it, but that's about all I could find out. Oh, and that it was painted metal flake blue on one side and metal flake green on the other. This Harley Isn ’ t Painted , It ’ s Tattooed .

Gnarly Harley:

Despite the theme of repeated criminality, Game Over Cycles leveraged one of Harley’s most conservative models to bring The Recidivist to life, the Softail Heritage. For the tattooed appearance, the builders covered the custom gas tank, oil tank, and rear fender in a light cowhide which is “similar to the color of human skin.” While that sounds like something Leatherface or Buffalo Bob would have done, the approach allowed artists to ink up the surface of the Harley.

Along with body art, tattooing tools also inspired numerous components of the build. Game Over Cycles fashioned the girder front end after the coils of a traditional tattoo machine, repurposed modern tattoo guns as ignition plugs, and even outfitted the exhaust with pulsating metal rods that resembled needles.

Listen To The Sound Of The Harley-Davidson LiveWire

Listen To The Sound Of The Harley-Davidson LiveWire If a motorcycle makes no noise, is it still a Harley? The much-anticipated Harley-Davidson LiveWire keeps popping up in the press. This time we've found a video of the bike actually running, albeit on a static roller. Any Minute Now:H-D Getting Ready For The Livewire With New Charging StationsHarley-Davidson Spruces Up The LiveWire Spec Sheet The important part, especially for the brand faithful, is that this video has sound. We get to hear what the bike sounds like. Actually, we’re not exactly sure if the noise is the bike, its final-drive belt, or the roller it's on.

It ’ s is fitted with knobby Pirelli Scorpion Rally tires, combined with Kayaba adjustable suspension and an Off Road riding mode that disengages the ABS. This Harley Isn ’ t Painted , It ’ s Tattooed . RideApart. The first look at the Indian Challenger we almost missed.

If you think this story sounds familiar, it should— this is the second-annual running of Jack’s Ride, an event that took Jack on a round trip from Milan to Cement City, Michigan on June 29 This Harley Isn ’ t Painted , It ’ s Tattooed .

The team completed the build by mounting car tirestattooed as wellon the 250-spoke rims. We definitely wouldn’t recommend going to the dark side with The Recidivist, but at least the addition of the sidecar will help with stability. According to the Game Over Cycles, construction of the motorcycle and accompanying sidecar clocked in at 3,000 hours and an additional 2,500 hours went into inking it up.

Yes, the build indulgently glorified criminality, but Game Over Cycles knew its audience. The Recidivist has captured 11 awards, including first place in the Rat’s Hole Custom Bike Show at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

If you’re a fan of flesh tones, body art, and Harleys, you can purchase the motorcycle for $1 million on eBay right now. Before you go rushing over, make sure you pack your antibacterial ointment and moisturizeryou’re bike’s going to need it.
