Harley'-Davidson's Custom Vehicle Operations have created four limited edition motorcycles - the CVO Street Glide, CVO Road Glide Ultra, CVO Limited and CVO Deluxe.

One of the largest motorcycle events in South Africa, Africa Bike Week organised by Harley-Davidson, will take place for the seventh consecutive year in Margate, KZN, over April 23-26.

Will you be there?

The event is open to all motorcycle brands, their riders and even those who don't yet have a motorcycle. There will be an array of exciting activities for the whole family at this event that attracts thousands of visitors.

Entertainment will keep visitors rocking well into the night with some of South Africa’s most popular bands, DJ’s and personalities on stage, among them Just Jinjer, Dilana, Jack Parow, Rene Mabotha, Angie Khumalo, DJ Mixwell, Beyond Vocal, Loki, Monark, Clint & Co, Owen Kay, Taxi Violence, Georgia, FLO, Shadow Club and Saving Silence.


More Africa Bike Week highlights will include everything from two trail-bike shows through a mass ride, Harley exhibitions and the latest H-D, Kings of Custom Bikes, demos, local traders and an 'aftermarket village'.

As well as a variety of family entertainment there will be the usual Ride-In Bike Show - any biker can enter his/her cool customised bike in one of several categories.

The mass ride, open to all motorcycles, will leave the Shelly Centre roof on Sunday April 26 at 10am - the sound of thousands of motorcycles is blood-tingling.

For 2015, to address previous congestion and safety issues, the number of motorcycles accessing the Harley Village area (Beach Road only) will be limited.
