MILWAUKEE, Aug. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Propelled by Project RUSHMORE, the global launch of the Street™750 and Street™500 motorcycles and the electric buzz of Project LiveWire™, Harley-Davidson® (NYSE: HOG) stays hard on the throttle with the introduction of its 2015 model lineup. Combining world-class aerodynamics, exhilarating audio performance and dialed-in ergonomic fit, Harley-Davidson expands its diverse offering of motorcycles and gives riders more ways than ever before to lead their own pack to the open road.

Harley-Davidson announces 2015 model lineup, including the Electra Glide(R) Ultra Classic(R) Low, expanding its diverse offering of motorcycles to  give riders more ways to lead their own pack to the open road.

"The broad 2015 Harley-Davidson model lineup demonstrates our commitment to delivering amazing products to our customers through world-class, customer-led product design," said Matt Levatich, President and Chief Operating Officer, Harley-Davidson Motor Company. "We are one with our riders around the world, and everything we do is about delivering what they expect and deserve from Harley-Davidson."

Customer-led innovations for 2015 include:

Road Glide® Motorcycle 
After a one-year hiatus, the original alternative bagger is back with a new triple vented, frame-mounted fairing that minimizes head buffeting, Dual Reflector Daymaker™ LED headlamps and a new handlebar with reduced reach and a new wrist angle for improved ergonomics.

Road Glide Special® Motorcycle 
The fully-loaded Road Glide Special is factory-equipped with premium Boom! ™ Box infotainment, upgraded suspension, and Reflex™ linked brakes with an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS).

Freewheeler™ Trike 
America's hot-rod swagger rolls even wider with H-D's expansion and dominance in the three wheel category.  From its mini ape-hanger handlebar to its bobtail fenders, the Freewheeler trike fuses custom style and easy-handling performance. The all-new rear body shape gives the Freewheeler a low, lean profile.

New Braking System for Softail® Models
A new braking system for Softail models delivers improved modulation and responsiveness and decreases hand lever effort by 40 percent. ABS is now standard on all Softail models and optional on the Slim. New front brake components include a rigid four-piston fixed front brake caliper with 34 and 32mm pistons coated to minimize initial displacement, brake pads with high-output friction material, a new master cylinder with a higher mechanical ratio, and a new 300mm front brake rotor. The caliper and master cylinder have been restyled to enhance the looks of each model.

Electra Glide® Ultra Classic® Low / Ultra Limited Low Motorcycles 
Harley-Davidson takes fit further with a package of ergonomic enhancements that offer the lowest seat height and highest rider confidence available in a premium touring bike, combined with a full complement of Project RUSHMORE features and classic Harley-Davidson style.

CVO Street Glide Motorcycle 
Boasting a new Boom! Audio system backed by 600 watts of power streaming through four bi-amped front and rear three-way speakers, this limited-production bagger is a rolling concert venue that delivers shocking volume and outstanding sonic quality. Top it off with an intricate paint scheme and the added exclusivity of four color options.

CVO Road Glide Ultra Motorcycle 
Drenched in chrome and custom paint, this super-premium touring motorcycle offers world-class aerodynamics, luxury touring essentials and the unrelenting performance of a Screamin'® Eagle Twin-CooledTwin Cam 110 engine.

Across its 2015 model lineup, Harley-Davidson offers fresh style with eight new paint colors, including new Custom colors Black Magic and Radioactive Green and new Hard Candy Custom™ metal flake colors Cancun Blue Flake and Quicksilver Flake.

When it comes to customization, Harley's philosophy is the more the better – and it is pushing the limits even farther. This year, Harley-Davidson is adding hundreds of new Genuine Motor Parts & Accessories and making its digital Bike Builder tool even more massive. There are also new Genuine MotorClothes® jackets, boots, helmets, shirts and more to add to the shopping cart.

In the 21st century, security on the Internet has become one of the most important issues.

We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...
In his session at Cloud Expo, Robert Cohen, an economist and senior fellow at the Economic Strategy Institute, will provide economic scenarios that describe how the rapid adoption of software-defined everything including cloud services, SDDC and open networking will change GDP, industry growth, productivity and jobs.

DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago. By definition, DevOps is the natural alignment of IT performance to business profitability. The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...
The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

As the world moves toward more DevOps and Microservices, application deployment to the cloud ought to become a lot simpler. The Microservices architecture, which is the basis of many new age distributed systems such as OpenStack, NetFlix and so on, is at the heart of Cloud Foundry - a complete developer-oriented Platform as a Service (PaaS) that is IaaS agnostic and supports vCloud, OpenStack and AWS. Serverless computing is revolutionizing computing. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Raghav...
Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, wil...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
