Bill Davidson Interview – Video

Great-Grandson of H-D's co-founder talks updates to 2014

Share this Article

It must be a strange feeling to have your surname on the sides of the most famous motorcycles in the world. Bill Davidson, the great-grandson of Harley-Davidson’s co-founder, William A. Davidson, carries that weight.

Davidson’s current role with The Motor Company is Vice President of Core Customer Marketing, but on Monday he was in Colorado helping introduce H-D’s 2014 model lineup. The most notable news are the revisions to the Touring family and the availability of the new “Twin-Cooled” engine that uses liquid flowing around the cylinder heads to shed heat, a strategy similar to what BMW uses in the precision-cooled R1200GS.

We got a chance to sit down with Davidson for a brief interview about the 2014 updates – but with a twist. He was riding on a 2014 CVO Ultra Limited in Colorado while I sat on my office chair 1000 miles away. See and hear the interview in the video below. And check back with us on Friday to see our review on the new Harleys.
