Harley-Davidson today announced it will donate 28 new Buell and Harley-Davidson motorcycles to assist with earthquake disaster relief and stabilization efforts in Haiti.
The motorcycles are being shipped from Motor Company facilities to the Dominican Republic, where Harley-Davidson dealership organization MagnaMotors will facilitate direct delivery to the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti.
"Our thoughts are with all of those affected by this devastating disaster in Haiti," said Rod Copes, Sr. Vice President of International Sales, Marketing and Business Development for Harley-Davidson. "As the relief and stabilization efforts continue, motorcycles can often offer a higher degree of maneuverability and access than other types of vehicles."
The motorcycles will remain in Haiti as a permanent donation to the government.
