“It’s a fantastic feeling to have created a world-beating bike. It’s a huge achievement and a fantastic and just reward for the hard work creativity and expertise of the team here,” commented Harley-Davidson Shaw Dealer Principal Steve Willis. “It’s great too that Strike True II will also now reach a wider audience at Carole Nash Motorcycle Live. We’re immensely proud of what we’ve achieved so gaining a platform as high profile as this is fantastic."
