Harley-Davidson Motor Company
By: Brennan Harris
The location of Harley Davidson was perfect for the company. Milwaukee was a major port and railroad stop in America at the time, rapidly expanding from the iron, steal, wheat, and all the attention. Many European immigrants chose Milwaukee as a place to live.
The time Harley Davidson started up, 1903, starting a motorcycle business was a good idea. Motorcycles were getting popular as well as cars and other motorized vehicles. Horses were disappearing off the streets. However, motorcycles at the time in America weren't very good. They bursted into flames, leaked oil, and were as strong as a man.

H-D's effect on society is bringing a fair priced reliable motorcycle on the road that will win the race. H-D also brings better education, environment, and health to areas around H-D plants. Harley's effect on pop culture is showing the rugged individualism, inventiveness, and pioneering spirit of America.

The company changed by in 1905, gaining a first full time employee. Then in 1908 H-D gained a new larger brick factory. In 1910, the red brick factory was built, which is know the Harley Davidson HQ. In 1911, Harley produced the legendary v-twin engine. This engine was much better than any other and put Harley in the lead of the world for motorcycle brands in 1920.
Now Harley Davidson is a leading brand in motorcycles and you can find dealerships around the world. On average, H-D sells 40,359 bikes in a year. It is located in 67 countries and offers over 500 models today.
Harley Davidson is better than when it started because in 1905, you could barley see a Harley outside Milwaukee and Chicago. The company had sold only 11 bikes and hadn't thought of charity at all. Today H-D is one of the best motorcycles in the world, and is wildly popular, solidly proven. Harley Davidson has also been in part with the Hunger Task Force for 20 years.
The products are marketed by the Harley Davidson goal of providing reliable bikes for fair prices. A persuasive technique is transfer, because Harley uses a wild, American spirit reminiscent of the undiscovered American west.
