MILWAUKEE, US - Porsche AG and Harley-Davidson have formed a joint venture to develop and assemble powertrain components for motorcycles.
Porsche has had a relationship with the only major US-based motorcycle manufacturer since the 1970s.
The joint venture will operate from Harley-Davidson's plant in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Each company will invest up to $10 million over the life of the venture, which is scheduled to last five years after production starts.
Production will be 'years in the future,' the motorcycle maker said.
'Porsche's considerable skills in engine emission compliance make it a great partner for Harley-Davidson,' said Harley-Davidson President Jeff Bleustein.
