MILWAUKEE, July 27, 2010; Harley-Davidson introduces the new SuperLow(TM), XR1200X and Road Glide® Ultra models with its expansive line of 2011-model-year motorcycles. With 32 models including urban brawlers, long-haul touring machines, contemporary customs drenched in chrome, dark retro-style bobbers, exhilarating sport roadsters and inviting standards, Harley-Davidson offers a motorcycle to match the desires of almost any street rider. Each rolls to the sound track of the American road, a syncopated V-Twin cadence that is the pulse of every Harley-Davidson® motorcycle.

  Highlights of the 2011 Harley-Davidson line include:

  --  The new SuperLow combines revised front end geometry, new wheels and
      tires with a reshaped seat and handlebars to achieve well-balanced
      handling and comfort that will inspire confidence in new riders and
      exhilarate those with experience.
  --  The qualities of a frame-mounted fairing and luxury touring
      accommodations come together in the new Road Glide Ultra. Powered by a
      Twin Cam 103(TM) engine, this long-haul beauty comes equipped with a
      King Tour-Pak® luggage carrier, vented fairing lowers, ABS (anti-lock
      braking system), Harley-Davidson Smart Security System, cruise
      control, and a four-speaker, 80-watt Harman/Kardon Advanced Audio
  --  The new XR1200X is Harley-Davidson Sportster® performance honed to its
      finest edge, with adjustable front and rear suspension, floating front
      brake rotors and the surging power of a high-compression 1200cc
      Evolution® V-Twin engine.
  --  Select Touring models gain power and technology with the new
      Harley-Davidson PowerPak, which bundles the Twin Cam 103(TM) engine
      with ABS (anti-lock braking system) and the H-D® Smart Security
      System. PowerPak is a standard feature on the 2011 Road King® Classic,
      Electra Glide® Ultra Limited, and Road Glide® Ultra models, and will
      be available as a factory-installed option on the 2011 Street Glide®
      and Road Glide® Custom models.
  --  2011 Harley-Davidson Softail models except Cross Bones® are newly
      available with optional ABS. New hand controls add features,
      convenience and cleaner styling.
  --  The 2011 VRSC(TM) power-cruisers are available with a new Security
      Package option, which bundles ABS with a Smart Security System for
      greater value. Michelin® Scorcher(TM) tires and new colors and
      graphics round out changes to the Night Rod® Special and the V-Rod
  --  The four 2011 Dyna® models project pure attitude. Built with the
      rawest styling of all the Big Twin motorcycles, Dyna models are a
      customizer's dream. Each is offered in new colors.
