1999 Harley-Davidson MT500

Originally designed and produced by the British manufacturer CCM Armstrong for military use world wide, Harley-Davidson also built these motorcycles in York, PA. under license. The power unit is a Rotax of Austria, the same motor commonly used in dirt-track racing in the U.S. With the insistence that all military vehicles must use diesel fuel, gasoline powered motorcycles were now obsolete. The U.S. Marines now use Kawasaki KLR650s that are converted to run on diesel fuel.
