The centerpiece of the gallery is "Serial Number One", the oldest known Harley-Davidson in existence, which is encased in glass. The glass enclosure sits within a floor-embedded, illuminated outline of the backyard shed the motor company was founded in.

2015 Harley-Davidson Police Motorcycles offer key improvements, same commanding presence
The long tradition of Harley-Davidson police motorcycles continues with the 2015 line, boasting competitive performance and industry-leading value.

The Harley-Davidson name is synonymous with police motorcycles. For over 106 years, the Harley-Davidson Motor Company has been producing police motorcycles ever since departments first began using them. It isn’t difficult to see why: Harley-Davidson police motorcycles provide value and performance.

In addition to engine power, the handling has also been improved. The 2015 Harley-Davidson police motorcycles offer a responsive, agile ride. They feature a 29-degree steering head angle and a changeover to a lighter open-concept wheel. As with previous models, the 2015 also boasts deep lean angles and a low center of gravity for unparalleled control on the road.


The hand control system was redesigned with the 2014 models and features speed capture, cruise control and push-to-talk all with one-touch buttons. The emergency lights can all be controlled independently. Stealth mode even allows all exterior lights (except instruments and brakes) to be turned off in order to preserve the element of surprise.

CRDI (Common Rail Direct Injection)

CRDi stands for Common Rail Direct Injection meaning, direct injection of the fuel into the cylinders of a diesel engine via a single, common line, called the common rail which is connected to all the fuel injectors.

     Whereas ordinary diesel direct fuel-injection systems have to build up pressure anew for each and every injection cycle, the new common rail (line) engines maintain constant pressure regardless of the injection sequence. This pressure then remains permanently available throughout the fuel line. The engine's electronic timing regulates injection pressure according to engine speed and load. The electronic control unit (ECU) modifies injection pressure precisely and as needed, based on data obtained from sensors on the cam and crankshafts. In other words, compression and injection occur independently of each other. This technique allows fuel to be injected as needed, saving fuel and lowering emissions.
