Harley-Davidson,Inc.(H-D) ,or Harley, is an American motorcycle manufacturer, founded in Milwaukee,Wisconsin in 1903. As one of two maj or American motorcycle manufacturers to survive
the Great Depression (along withIndian),[5] the company has survived numerous ownership arrangements, subsidiary arrangements (e.g.,Aermacchi 1974-1978 and Buell 1987-2009), periods of poor economic health and product quality, as well as intense global competition[6] — to become the world's fifth largest motorcycle manufacturer and an iconic brand widely known for its loyal following — with owner clubs and events worldwide as well as a company sponsored brand-focused museum. Noted for a style of customization that gave rise to the chopper motorcycle style, Harley-Davidson traditionally marketed heavyweight, air-cooledcruiser motorcycles with engine displacements greater than 700 cc — and has broadened its offerings to include its more contemporary VRSC(2001) and middle-weight Street (2014) platforms.
