TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Harley-Davidson is celebrating its 110th anniversary this year, and in addition to releasing limited-edition apparel and accessories in commemoration of the occasion, the firm's 110th Anniversary Edition Motorcycles are also currently on presale in Taiwan.
Taikoo Motorcycle Limited, Taiwan Branch, Harley-Davidson's local distributor, has put the 110th Anniversary Edition Motorcycles on display at its showrooms in Taipei, Taichung and Kaohsiung, expecting to attract up to 2,000 Harley-Davidson aficionados across the island.
