During the celebration, the dealership also unveiled a custom Nevada Sesquicentennial-themed motorcycle that celebrates the state’s birthday. In in typical Vegas style, someone will win the Harley at the store’s grand opening this fall
During the ground-breaking event, 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 the custom Harley. Adding to its extreme rarity, Governor Sandoval signed the bike shortly after its reveal.
Gov. Brian Sandoval says: “I am pleased to see one of our great Nevada companies incorporate the Sesquicentennial into their business strategy.
“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.
Don Andress says: “We are thrilled to be opening a new location on the famed Las Vegas Strip. 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.”
Mike Kennedy (Harley-Davidson North America President) says: “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.
“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.”
