On Thursday, Jan. 23, Las Vegas Harley-Davidson® broke ground on a full-line Harley-Davidson® dealership on the famed Las Vegas Strip. A custom Nevada Sesquicentennial-themed motorcycle celebrating the state’s 150th anniversary was revealed as part of the event, along with details on how one lucky rider will win it at the store’s grand opening.
The groundbreaking event welcomed Harley-Davidson® owners from around the city as Las Vegas Harley-Davidson® President Don Andress and Vice President Timothy Cashman discussed the new location and along with Governor of Nevada Brian Sandoval, unveiled a custom Nevada Sesquicentennial-themed motorcycle. Adding to its extreme rarity, Governor Sandoval signed the bike shortly after its reveal.
“I am pleased to see one of our great Nevada companies incorporate the Sesquicentennial into their business strategy,” said Governor Brian Sandoval. “The design of
this one-of-a-kind bike is impressive and I commend Las Vegas Harley-Davidson® for not only creating a showpiece, but also developing a program that will integrate people and their love of riding into our state’s celebration.”
Set to open this fall, Las Vegas Harley-Davidson® will be located directly on the Las Vegas Strip at 5191 S. Las Vegas Boulevard, just steps from the famed Welcome to Las Vegas sign. The 50,000 square-foot space will feature a dealership, motorcycle rentals and a retail store. The Las Vegas Strip location will be the brand’s third location locally.
“We are thrilled to be opening a new location on the famed Las Vegas Strip,” remarked Las Vegas Harley-Davidson® President Don Andress. “We aim to be the world’s best Harley-Davidson® dealerships, and this location will be no exception. It will have the best people, trained, empowered and committed to providing the
best experience to our customers every time.”
“We are excited that the Las Vegas Strip will be the place that customers who want an authentic Harley-Davidson® experience can get their fill,” remarked Harley-Davidson® North America Vice President Mike Kennedy. "We are proud that the Nevada Sesquicentennial is being celebrated in one-of-a-kind, gleaming paint and chrome on an all new Street Glide®.”
Harley-Davidson® enthusiasts have the opportunity to win the Nevada Sesquicentennial-themed motorcycle, the only design of its kind ever created. Soon, those hoping to take the bike home will be able to purchase raffle tickets benefitting Nevada 150 Foundation, Inc. The winner will be selected at Las Vegas Harley-Davidson®’s grand opening on the Las Vegas Strip this fall. Additional details regarding price and availability of raffle tickets will be announced shortly.
