Introduction to Harley Davidson
Harley Davidson is an American based motorcycle company which is well known for more than a century for its figurative work in the manufacturing of the motorbikes and the Harley accessories. It was founded back in 1903 by William Harley and his two brothers, Arthur and Walter Davidson at a place called Milwaukee, Wisconsin USA. The company manufactures traditional cruiser motorcycles making use of air-cooled V-Twin engines. They sold their first motorcycle in 1903 making them among the first motorcycle brands across the country. Its products and operations are majorly based on American culture. The automotive company was registered in 1907, and it settled in Milwaukee. The company had its milestone during the First World War because they supplied the American Military with motorcycles. As a way to attract customers into buying their motorcycles, they launched a variety of bicycles from 1917 to 1921 in Ohio when Davis Company stopped manufacturing bicycles. At this time, Harley-Davidson was the largest motorcycle manufacturing company in the world.

However, this is not the case since Harley Davidson brakes have tested and approved meeting all the requirements ensuring the customers are safe on the roads. It is recommended that anyone with a Harley Davidson bike to fix these brakes for compatibility as well as ensuring maximum performance. For the sake of optimum performance at all conditions, the brakes have been tested against various road hazards such as oily roads. They work very well at wet and dry conditions. The table below shows a comparison between the Harley Davidson brakes and standard brakes.

Exhausts are an integral part in a motorcycle since they enhance the sound as well as airing the system. These exhausts give various outlooks such as sleek designs, classic good looks as well as innovative sounds. They also improve the performance of the motorcycles because they emit the wastes from engines.
Seats and Backrests
Unlike a vehicle, motorbikes do not have support on the back, so once a seat is installed, it must do all the work. Not only are they fancy, but the Harley Davidson seats and backrests are also comfortable. These seats are made in such a way that they fit the type of bike being customized. Some seats include both passenger and rider. They have unique qualities such as reduction of pressure points, shock absorption and reduction of vibration with an integrated air pump.

Harley LED Headlights
Headlights are one of the most important Harley accessories. Some may still use the old style halogen or Xenon headlights for Harley; while Harley LED headlights are designed in various ways to suit the customers’ desire. There a variety of Harley LED headlights in the market. They are made of light emitting diodes (LED). Reasons for equipping Harley LED Lights (Headlight, Turn Signal, Taillights), is because many motorbikes users remain with low-quality headlights despite newly improved lights being introduced in the market. Most motorbike manufacturers use Xenon and others halogen headlights whereas Harley Davidson motorbikes use light emitting diodes (LED) for their lighting. The table below shows a comparison of Harley LED headlights and the Halogen and xenon headlights.
|Harley LED Headlights||Halogen, Xenon Headlights|
|They are ultra-bright||They are comparatively less bright|
|They are long lasting (about 15000 hours)||They are not durable(Halogen lights last for about 1000 hours)|

Since they use the Harley LED headlights, Harley headlights are shaped in a way that they can be used for the turn signal, headlight, and tail lights. This is also because they are brighter and consume less power. They also cover a wider area, therefore, giving the rider a more comprehensive coverage area. The various types of these lights include:
I. Auxbeam 5.75” 45W Hi-Lo Beam Harley LED Headlights
II. Harley Daymaker Projector LED Headlights

This headlight is exquisite since it is fancy when off and even more attractive when turned on. It has an integrated optic system including Euro-inspired 4D projector lens with the D-shape lens. The low beam provides a wide pool of general lighting and remains illuminated all the time. The high beam pattern-add focused light from the lower section to add punch down the middle of the road. These Harley LED headlights make it even more elegant and have a feature which lacks in other headlights. Also, the Harley led headlights are made in the solid-state component which can withstand driving vibration & shock with ease.

They are also known as “cut through the night Harley-Davidson Daymaker” because of their brighter and whiter color. They also provide a unique light pattern compared to other standard incandescent lamps.
