Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron premieres this weekend and features some of Hollywood’s hottest stars. It also spotlights two awesome Harley-Davidson motorcycles that we’ve talked about in the past. Our Harley-Davidson dealership near Nashua, NH, started thinking about all the other times a Harley stole the scene in a major motion picture. We decided to rank the coolest movie moments and the hog featured in each scene!
If you’re a fan of comic books, action movies, motorcycles or free stuff, you’ll want to sit up and pay attention. Marvel Studios and Harley-Davidson have joined forces for The Avengers 2: Age of Ultron Sweepstakes, and you could win big!
“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” smashed records to become the highest grossing film opening in April of all time this past weekend, raking in an astonishing $96.2 million. Featuring a star-studded cast including Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson, the much-anticipated sequel to “Captain America: The First Avenger” is packed with action, adventure and some major plot-twists. And at our Harley dealership in Manchester, we would like to point out that it features some pretty impressive motorcycles, too!
Captain America has long been known to favor a Harley-Davidson, and two of our models are featured prominently during his latest on-screen endeavors. The new 2014 Harley-Davidson Breakout serves as Steve Rogers’ everyday bike, according to Jen Hoyer, media relations manager for Harley. When Captain Rogers dons his Captain America persona, he rides the all-new Street 750, demonstrating how the smaller, urban-focused bike still packs plenty of power and speed.
We’ve written about the new Street 750 and Street 500 bikes before, and we can’t wait until these new motorcycles designed for urban use hit our lot in June. With a lighter body that’s lower to the ground than most models, the Street series bikes are designed to navigate heavy traffic and escape gridlock, but are also pretty handy when chasing down genetically altered super villains. The 2014 Breakout is a more traditional performance cruiser, with big wheels and a big attitude that befit an American hero.
It’s great to see Harley-Davidson’s iconic American status reaffirmed in the latest line of Captain America movies, and we can’t’ wait until the Street 750 hits our lot this summer! Swing by our Manchester Harley dealership for more info on the Street 750, or to test-drive the 2014 Breakout today.
