2018 marks the biggest Battle of the Kings (BOTK) competition to date with over 300 custom Harley-Davidson bikes and 30 countries taking part.
Now in its 4th year, Battle of the Kings is the ultimate customisation contest, where dealers across the Harley network battle it out to see who will take the crown of Custom King. With a set budget and a choice of 7 models, this year the bike builders were set the task of creating a custom ride inspired by Harley heritage as we celebrated our 115th anniversary. Café racers, Scramblers and Dirt Track are just a few of the themes that were explored.
This year, the models included a versatile range of Street, Sportster and Softail motorcycles showcasing just how easy it is to customise a Harley, whatever your riding style. Starting from £6,045 for a Battle of the Kings bike, customising your dream ride could be more affordable than you may think.
Following a fierce round of online voting, where you got to help shortlist your favourite entries, the national winners were selected, before being judged by a select panel of the world’s leading motorcycle press and biggest industry names. We can now announce the top 3 finalists are:
- Australia – Harley-Davidson Adelaide
- Italy – Harley-Davidson Bologna
- Thailand – Harley-Davidson Bangkok
This November the finalists will go head to head at EICMA 2018, where one winner will be crowned the ultimate Custom King.
You can see the bikes at EICMA from 6 – 11 November 2018 on the Harley-Davidson stand P54, hall 24.
