Oxford (08 September 2011) - This weekend there’s an exclusive chance to check out the stunning new range of 2012 Harley-Davidson® motorcycles at your local Harley-Davidson® dealership. Almost every dealer in the Harley-Davidson UK and Ireland network is throwing open its doors to all riders and enthusiasts for a three-day event dedicated to showing off the latest that the legendary brand has to offer.
The Open House is from 9-11 September and will combine a first-look at the fantastic 2012 motorcycles with a party atmosphere and ample opportunities for test rides for riders who remember to bring both parts of their licence.
Visitors to each dealership during the open house weekend will also have the opportunity to enter a prize draw to win a customised Forty-Eight® motorcycle or a voucher for £250 worth of Genuine Accessories.
Steve Colling, Harley-Davidson UK and Ireland Marketing Manager, said: “This is a really exciting weekend – one of the biggest on the calendar for us. It’s great to have the opportunity to offer everyone a look at the amazing new motorcycles we’re introducing for 2012. There’s something in the Harley-Davidson line-up to suit everyone and this is the perfect opportunity to find out what your dream ride is. We’re looking forward to welcoming many new and existing customers and their families over the weekend.”
The line-up for 2012 includes one completely new model, one anniversary edition model and a significant engine upgrade. The new bike on the block is the Dyna® Switchback, a convertible custom-touring motorcycle with detachable hard saddlebags and windshield. For enthusiasts seeking an iconic Harley-Davidson® motorcycle, the V-Rod® 10th Anniversary Edition has been created to celebrate a decade of power cruiser performance. The Night Rod Special has also undergone an update, sporting refreshed bodywork and optimised rider ergonomics.
Harley-Davidson can also offer more Big Twin performance or 2012 as the Twin Cam 103™ powertrain becomes standard equipment on most Softail® motorcycles. The upgrade to the Softail® family follows the successful introduction of the Twin Cam 103™ powertrain to most Touring models for this year. Meanwhile, Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO™) is rolling out the gleaming new CVO Road Glide® Custom – a limited-production, high-performance touring masterpiece.
