The company’s mission statement reads “We fulfil our dreams through the experience of motorcycling.”
It all started in the 60s. If you turned up on a smart bike there was an immediate crowd round you. Today, the story is much the same.
Outside Starbucks the other day, there it was… the ultimate dream machine. Smooth, silver and seductive. No rider in sight, nor was there anything else to interrupt the view. Not a single blemish. Not a fingerprint. What a stunner.
We know the price tag is the same as a pretty smart car. But with a Harley you get what’s not included in the price tag of most things on four wheels… showstopping street cred – and a permanent smile.
When you speak to the local Harley-Davidson boys you find they’re not a bunch of boy racers. They’re fellows who love the feeling of the open road. Without exception, Harley owners reckon that although the bike’s expensive, every dirham is well spent.
But don’t take their word for it… try one for yourself. They’re available for a day’s hire at Harley-Davidson UAE. For more information, telephone Nelius in Abu Dhabi on 02 6427400 (showroom corner of Al Salaam Street and Al Falah Street) or Sam in Dubai 04 3391909 ext 34 (showroom Sheikh Zayed Road).

Harley-Davidson worldwide has just had its 20th consecutive year of record sales.
Over the last four years, Dubai sales have also increased by around 20%, an in Abu Dhabi the increase is a massive 50% during last year alone. You can pay anything from around Dhs30,000 for a 900cc sportster (that’s a big bike for your money) to Dhs120,000 for the top of the range model (that’s a VERY big bike for your money!)
Harley owners in the US have 12 events scheduled for 1st April alone. Check out the rest of the calendar here.
In Europe, it’s the German Harley owners who have got themselves organised, with six of this month’s eight events being held in Germany.
