OUR ROOTS

In 1903, out of a small shed in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, four young men lit a cultural wildfire that would grow and spread across geographies and generations. Their innovation and imagination for what was possible on two wheels sparked a transportation revolution and a motorcycle culture that would make Harley-Davidson one of the most recognized and revered brands in the world.

all for freedom

Since the beginning, we’ve proudly and authentically stood up for the things we believe in most: the rebel spirit in all of us, unity, individuality and personal freedom. These beliefs and a desire to find freedom on two wheels forge a bond that brings Harley-Davidson riders, employees, dealers, and suppliers together.

On our quest to build the next generation of riders globally, we welcome all who share these beliefs and a desire to enjoy the world on a motorcycle.

OUR STRATEGY

We’re on a quest to build the next generation of Harley-Davidson riders globally, with efforts focused on deepening rider engagement and commitment whether they’re new to riding or seasoned road warriors. We’re inspiring riders, expanding globally and investing to achieve profitable growth – all while playing our part in sustaining our planet. 

Our strategic objectives, set to be achieved by 2027, are clear:
