Harley-Davidson, Inc. (H-D, or simply Harley) is an American motorcycle manufacturer based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Founded in 1903, it is one of two major American motorcycle manufacturers to have survived the Great Depression, the other being Indian Motorcycles.  The company has persevered through numerous ownership arrangements, subsidiary arrangements, periods of poor economic health and product quality, and intense global competition to become one of the world’s largest motorcycle manufacturers and an iconic brand known for its devoted following. There are owner clubs and events all over the world, as well as a brand-focused museum sponsored by the company.

Harley-Davidson is well-known for its customization style, which gave rise to the chopper motorcycle style.

 Traditionally, the company marketed heavyweight, air-cooled cruiser motorcycles with engine displacements greater than 700 cc, but it has since expanded its offerings to include more modern VRSC (2002) and middle-weight Street (2015) platforms.

Harley-Davidson motorcycles are manufactured in York, Pennsylvania, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Manaus, Brazil, Bawal, India, and Pluak Daeng, Thailand.

The company sells its products all over the world, and it also licenses and sells merchandise under the Harley-Davidson brand, such as apparel, home décor and ornaments, accessories, toys, scale models of its motorcycles, and video games based on its motorcycle line and community.
