Founded in 1994, Big Dog Motorcycles plans to reveal its line-up of 2007 models Sep. 25-27 at company headquarters in Wichita, Kan.
It has been a big year for Big Dog, which started 2006 by claiming a victory in a trademark dispute. The company named Bob Brown as vice president, manufacturing in January; announced individual marketing deals with Dodge, Eddie Trotta, Rick Fairless and Kim Suter in March; built its 20,000th motorcycle in May; and attracted an estimated 30,000 people to its second annual Tornado Rally in June.
Big Dog's current line of five motorcycles use a 117 cubic inch V-twin engine, six-speed transmission, stretch one-piece steel tank, right side drive, chrome components, steel fenders, and an extensive variety of custom paint colors and graphics. The 2006 line also includes Big Dog Motorcycles custom-designed electronics, hand controls, foot controls, mirrors, air cleaner cover, coil cover, and other components.
The design, manufacturing, and distributing of Big Dog motorcycles is done by 350 employees at the company's 175,000 square-foot headquarters in Wichita.
