Harley-Davidson provides the motorcycle for 2014’s Captain America
In Marvel’s last Captain America movie we had the occasion to see a modern Harley metamorphosed into a 1940 style motorcycle ridden the by the famous hero. In the upcoming part (2014’s ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’), the producers remain loyal to the American brand, so we’ll have the occasion to see Steve Rogers’ character riding another Harley bike. Fortunately, this time the motrocycle will look like a contemporary model, as the action will take place in the modern era.
The new Captain America motorcycle was revealed at San Diego Comic-Con and is basically a Harley Davidson Softail Breakout.
Talking about their motorcycle, Dino Bernacchi, Harley-Davidson Marketing Communication Director, declared: “Captain America and Harley-Davidson have had a long and glorious association dating back to the introduction of the character in 1939. He’s ridden different Harleys throughout the history of the character, and his bike for ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ needed to fit the modern day setting of this story. Our newest model, the Softail Breakout, with custom touches that personalize the bike for his character was the perfect choice for this film.”
“Captain America makes the perfect marketing partner for Harley-Davidson as he truly embodies the iconic, heroic, and American aspects of our brand. Both Captain America and our motorcycles are great symbols of freedom.”
