Harley custom contest goes to public vote

Harley-Davidson’s Battle of the Kings 2018 customisation contest now moves up a gear with the opening of the Battle of the Kings (BOTK) online hub for motorcycle fans to vote for their favourite entry from official Harley-Davidson dealers across 21 countries – including 15 from across the UK and Ireland. This follows a successful grand reveal event of this year’s entries at Harley-Davidson dealerships participating in Battle of the Kings 2018, on Saturday 13 January.

The Harley-Davidson Battle of the Kings competition is now in its fourth year and leads the way in dealer-led customisation. This original and biggest dealer-based competition showcases the wealth of in-house custom talent and the extensive range of Harley-Davidson Dark Custom parts and accessories readily available to support customisation requirements of Harley-Davidson customers.

The annual Battle of the Kings competition takes the form of official Harley-Davidson dealerships creating a road legal Dark Custom machine within a strict budget of £5500 (€6000) and from a select list of Harley-Davidson motorcycles.

With the opening of the 2018 BOTK voting hub, motorcycle fans can vote online for their favourite entry. For the UK & Ireland, these votes will generate a shortlist of five entries to be judged by an exclusive panel of guest judges in order to select the overall winner. The lucky finalist will then go head-to-head against other regional finalists at a grand final to take place at Milan’s EICMA exhibition in November. The UK and Ireland round of judging will take place at the Carole Nash MCN London Motorcycle Show, 16-18 February.

Motorcycle fans will be able to vote for their favourite Battle of the Kings 2018 motorcycle until Monday 12 February 2018. To vote visit
