In the recently released, Captain America: The Winter Solder trailer, Captain America is shown riding the new Harley-Davidson Street™ 750 motorcycle. Harley-Davidson sent Comicbook.com some images of Captain America in action on his Harley-Davidson ride, along with some background info on the bike.
The Harley-Davidson Street™ 750 is built for urban environments (like those featured in Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier). It has an all-new Revolution X™ powertrain. 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.”
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is scheduled to be released in movie theaters on April 4, 2013.
