Overview of the Harley-Davidson® Family of Motorcycles

The first Harley Davidson® motorcycle was built by four young men tinkering around in a small Milwaukee garage in 1903. Today, it’s one of America’s most-trusted brands, and every bike that rolls off the production line is built to the highest standards in the industry. We offer multiple great product lines, and there’s a Harley that’s perfect for every type of rider. Here’s a look at our most popular products. If you have any other questions, visit us at Big Moose Harley Davidson® in Portland, Maine, serving the Manchester and Portsmouth, Maine, area.

Street Bikes

We’re all happiest on the open road, but we also spend a lot of time commuting and making short trips around town. Our street bikes have the power to tear through the urban landscape and to make every errand an adventure. They’re sleek and nimble and feature classic throwback styling. Their liquid-cooled engines have electronic sequential port fuel injection (ESPFI) for enhanced throttle response, and they feature a low center of gravity for a smoother and more balanced riding experience.

Cruiser Bikes

Our beloved Softail line is a true American icon that offers a smooth ride and the edgy styling that Harley lovers have insisted on for decades. The rumble of the powerful Milwaukee-Eight® V-Twin engine will be music to your ears, and the low ground clearance offers a comfortable and balanced ride, whether you’re riding downtown or down home. Our Cruisers are some of the most customizable bikes we sell, and we guarantee you’ll turn heads no matter where you take them.

Touring Bikes

When you want to take a road trip in style, it doesn’t get any better than Harley-Davidson touring bikes. They feature great ergonomic styling engineered for long trips and loads of cargo space. We currently offer 11 different styles of touring and adventure-touring motorcycles to choose from, and each one is the perfect combination of form and function. You never know what to expect on a long road trip, but you can always count on your touring bike for a fun ride and power to spare.


All three of our trike models feature a V-twin powertrain with rear-wheel drive, a conventional front fork, and an aggressive twin-cooled Milwaukee-Eight 117 engine. The Freewheeler® features an easy-handling frame and hot-rod styling. The Tri Glide® Ultra and the CVO™ Tri Glide® are the paragon of comfort. They feature premium paint, Tomahawk wheels and a state-of-the-art infotainment system. Most importantly, they offer a three-wheeled riding experience like no other.
