MILWAUKEE, May 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Captain America and Iron Man may have drawn battle lines for the biggest superhero fight the Marvel universe has ever seen, but Harley-Davidson and Marvel have reunited to bring Dark Custom style and horsepower to defend the city streets in Marvel's "Captain America: Civil War."
Harley-Davidson has long been by Captain America's side in his stand for freedom, and the latest chapter of the hero's epic saga showcases a strong pulse of torque with "Team Captain America" member –Winter Soldier riding a one-of-a-kind Harley-Davidson Street 750 customized for the film and Team Iron Man member Black Widow – riding an Iron 883.
"Harley is proud to continue to join forces with Marvel with two bold, powerful and rebellious motorcycles – The Street 750 and all-new Iron 883 featured in 'Captain America: Civil War,'" said Dino Bernacchi, Harley-Davidson U.S. Marketing Director. "And, with pricing on both models starting below $9,000 the unique feeling of freedom that only can be found on a Harley is more attainable than ever."
Feel the Thrill of the Throttle
The Street 750 and Iron 883 are both part of Harley-Davidson's Dark Custom line-up.
- The Street 750 features the liquid-cooled Revolution X™ engine, housed in a narrow and lean chassis built for agility. New suspension and a broad handlebar sweep provide the confidence and maneuverability you need when managing tight turns and fast moves in defense – or pursuit of – freedom. It also has the premium, minimalist Dark Custom style that serves as a blank canvas for riders to customize.
- The Iron 883 is inspired by the rebellious spirit of the past updated with modern design and performance. Intentionally raw and rough around the edges, the Iron 883 boasts a modern design inspired by garage-built bobbers.
- With nine models under $12,000, including the Street 750, the Iron 883, and Harley's brand-new Roadster model, Harley-Davidson Dark Custom motorcycles provide the perfect balance of style, function, and attainability.
