MILWAUKEE, Nov. 12–Excitement is building for next Spring’s release of Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The official first trailer, which premiered in movie theaters Friday, November 8, includes a harrowing chase scene where Captain America helps defend freedom aboard the new Harley-Davidson Street 750 motorcycle.
The Harley-Davidson Street 750, revealed last week at EICMA, the International Motorcycle Exhibition in Milan, is built for urban environments (like those featured in Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier) with an all-new Revolution X powertrain, nimble agility and the sound and look that lets everyone know it’s a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. It is the newest Dark Custom motorcycle designed for young urban riders around the world.
“Captain America – since his first introduction in 1941 – has always been associated with riding a Harley-Davidson motorcycle,” said Dino Bernacchi, Harley-Davidson Marketing Communication Director. “Now, in Marvel’s ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’, he’ll ride a Harley® motorcycle built for the urban environment.”
Earlier this summer, fans at San Diego Comic-Con were shown Steve Rogers’ choice of bike in this movie– the Harley-Davidson Breakout motorcycle. So fans will not only see the Street 750 motorcycle in the film, but the Breakout will also make an appearance as the daily-rider bike of Rogers, aka Captain America.
“Captain America truly embodies the iconic, heroic, and American aspects of the Harley-Davidson brand. Both Captain America and our motorcycles are great symbols of freedom,” added Bernacchi. “We can’t wait for fans to see this movie and what Harley-Davidson has planned with Marvel moving forward. There are exciting things to come with our partnership.”
