Harley-Davidson’s dealer-led Dark Custom competition returns for its fourth year – and online voting is now open.

This year all you’ve got to do is visit the Battle of the Kings (BOTK) online hub, and vote for your favourite entry from official Harley-Davidson dealers across 21 countries – including 15 from across the UK and Ireland.

The annual Battle of the Kings competition challenges Harley-Davidson dealerships to create a road legal Dark Custom machine within a strict budget of £5,500 (€6,000), while showcasing the wealth of in-house custom talent and the extensive range of Harley-Davidson Dark Custom® parts and accessories readily available to support customisation. The list of base models for dealers to choose from to compete in this year’s BOTK includes the Street 750, Street Rod, Iron 883, Forty-Eight, Roadster, Street Bob and Fat Bob.


With the opening of the 2018 BOTK voting hub, motorcycle fans can now vote online for their favourite entry. For the UK & Ireland, these votes will generate a shortlist of five entries to be judged by an exclusive panel of guest judges in order to select the overall winner. The lucky finalist will then go head-to-head against other regional finalists at a Grand Final to take place at Milan’s EICMA exhibition in November 2018. The UK & Ireland round of judging will take place at The Carole Nash MCN London Motorcycle Show, 16-18th February 2018.

Motorcycle fans will be able to vote for their favourite Battle of the Kings 2018 motorcycle until Monday 12th February 2018. To register a vote and for more information about this brilliant custom competition, click HERE. www.customkings.harley-davidson.com
