The Battle of the Kings, an exclusive competition in which Harley Davidson dealerships across the U.K compete against one another to design the ultimate Harley Davidson Motorcycle, is back for 2018. Harley Davidson is a brand which is renowned for its customisable products and this competition is a company-backed event that has been set-up with the aim of showcasing the extent of customisation that is boasted with Harley Davidson products.

All dealerships have one main aim for the competition; design, build and defeat all other opponents. 31 U.K. dealerships have taken on the challenge to create what they believe to be 

Creations that have been made exclusively for the Battle of the Kings 2018 competition will be on display in dealerships from Saturday 13th January - Thursday 9th March and all have been designed and built with a Dark Custom theme in mind. There are certain rules that participants must abide by with regards to the competition - all bikes that are designed and built as an entry must be road legal and models must be capped at certain prices for re-sale. The maximum retail price includes the bike, parts, paint, fabrication and labour - designs based on the Iron model are capped at £12,995, while designs based on the Forty-Eight and Roadster are capped at £14,995.

Last year, Shaw Harley Davidson was triumphant in the competition, as they were named the 2017 U.K. winner. The bike that lead them to victory in the Battle of the Kings competition was designed and built around a Sportster Forty-Eight.

The public will be able to vote for their favourite creations and crown a new 'King' between Monday 15th January - Sunday 11th February and the top 5 bikes are to be announced the following Tuesday (13th February). Head over to the competition website to check out the exclusive and unique creations that have been designed and built by employees of Harley Davidson dealerships and to cast your vote.
