Harley-Davidson has declared November "Military Appreciation Month," inviting fans to pay a tribute to both active and retired U.S. Military personnel on a specially created “thank you” section of their website. Fans of the iconic American brand can create an electronic postcard featuring model Marisa Miller and Harley-Davidson motorcycles or buy limited-edition posters, postcards and calendars featuring the Victoria’s Secret Angel from HD dealerships. Also, one lucky active or retired military will win a motorcycle as part of the “Salute Those who Defend Freedom” campaign. Press release is attached after the jump.

Update: video is now also added.

The FLHTCUSE5 pushes the term "fully loaded" to the edge. From satellite radio and heated handgrips to exclusive custom paint schemes and a 1,801cc Scream in Eagle V-Twin engine, this ride is truly top-of-the-line.

The FXDF2-CVO has its show-stopping style with lavish custom details and adrenaline-pumping performance from a Twincam96 V-Twin engine.

The FXDWG Dyna Wide Glide has got old-school chopper looks with the comfort of a modem ride.

Suzuki released BURGMAN FUEL CELL SCOOTER, GLADIUS400 ABS and BOULEVARD400 as its world premieres at the 41st Tokyo Motor Show 2009 on October 21.

The fuel cell of BURGMAN FUEL CELL SCOOTER is air-cooled and concomitantly light, compact, and structurally simple. A 70MPa hydrogen tank (the highest-pressure tank used on a bike thus far) allows a usable riding range. And the tank is mounted within a robust frame for safety.

The Gladius 400 ABS is a stylish naked bike with a 400cm3 V-twin engine. It features a truss frame that combines rigidity with great looks. And its newly designed V-twin engine delivers plenty of power in a rider-friendly way.

The Boulevard 400 is a performance cruiser with aggressive bikini-cowled looks and a 400cm3 engine. Low, flowing body lines that give an unmistakable sense of performance are combined with inverted front forks and stylish cast wheels. The engine is a narrow-angle (45°), liquid-cooled V-twin with fuel injection.

Harley-Davidson launched a video presenting their 2010 lineup and inviting their riders (better said, their future riders) to start living free in the true American style because these motorcycles have long been representing the new land with pride. Arguing that “freedom ain’t quiet,” HD also invites you to make your statement at http://h-d.com/freecountry and if it’s among the best, you’ll even see it used on banners promoting their motorcycles.

Honda America has released the photos and information of their first row of 2010 street models, which includes the Honda CBR600RR and CBR1000RR, the all-new Honda Shadow Phantom as well as the NT700V. In the supersport segment, there’s no revolutionary upgrade, but only engine changes for the CBR1000RR and new color schemes and graphics for both RRs.

While the US market is no stranger to the Honda Shadow and the Shadow Phantom model is nothing more than a black, custom version with a 750cc, fuel-injected engine, the NT700V comes as an entirely new and very interesting entry. A sporty commuter powered by a 680cc V-twin engine? Is this Honda’s attempt to turn the US market towards fuel efficiency, user-friendliness and clean sportbike looks? What happened to the DN-01?

Harley-Davidson’s 2010 CVO lineup needs no presentation whatsoever, but the Fat Bob is now making an even stronger name for itself as a limited-production custom motorcycle. It relies on an aggressive, super-duty presence behind a beefy front wheel, twisted Tommy Gun exhaust, bold paint and innovative custom styling, meaning that it stands all the chances to achieve its goal.

Using the Harley-Davidson Dyna platform, which pairs Big Twin performance with an extended FX front end, exposed twin rear shock absorbers, and an under-seat battery box, the CVO Fat Bob has the proper back up for the job.

Among Harley-Davidson’s 2010 limited-production models, we find the CVO Street Glide not only as a popular hot-rod model produced by the American company, but also as one that is powered by a 110ci (1803 cc) V-Twin engine (the largest-displacement V-Twin engine offered by Harley-Davidson). This is mounted on a single-spar, rigid backbone frame, which works closely together with a new swingarm developed to withstand the demands of long-haul touring riders and today’s more-powerful engines.

Loaded with sparkling chrome, electrifying paint and fresh custom-styling ideas, the 2010 Harley-Davidson CVO Street Glide is a touring bike like no other that we’ve seen so far.

Harley-Davidson took their notorious Fat Boy model, lowered it and gave it a nice custom look before calling it a 2010 model year. The bike features the lowest seat in the American maker’s entire lineup and still the proven Twin Cam 96B V-Twin engine and six-speed Cruise Drive transmission. The colors available for 2010 are Vivid Black and Black Denim.

Yamaha hasn’t yet launched its 2010 line of cruisers, the so-called Star motorcycles, but designers have already started to speculate regarding the evolution of different models. We have a hunch that the 2010 Yamaha V Star 950 won’t receive more than some new colors, but came across some interesting sketches that reveal the contrary.

Adrian Sellers is a designer based in Huntington Beach, CA. He is specialized in Industrial Design, Design Management and Illustration, but we’ve come to find that he is quite interested in the evolution of motorcycles and transportation vehicles in general. His V Star 950 rendering retains the original Star look and adds a little more salt and pepper, managing to mix the classic and custom style with great ease. The spoked wheels aren’t from the production bike, neither is the seat and we can’t help noticing how the V-Twin engine is much easily stood out. It would have been nice to speculate about the different possible colors, but it seems that a shiny Red will always set a Star apart from the crowd. Just check out the 2010 VMAX (the only new Star model to be seen yet). .
