The 358,000-square-foot Harley-Davidson Vehicle and Powertrain Operations in Kansas City, Mo. was built in 1998 and provides free tours or extended Steel Toe Tours. Kansas City employees produce the Sportster®, Dyna®, StreetTM and V-Rod® families of motorcycles, along with select Softail® models, from fabrication and finishing through final assembly to include the liquid-cooled Revolution® and Revolution XTM powertrains for the V-Rod and Street families. The tour center features a series of displays that guide you through the various manufacturing and assembly processes. You'll also have the chance to sit on current production motorcycles and visit the gift shop, which features tour-related souvenirs. Your tour experience begins with an introductory video. Then it's on to the factory floor where you'll witness a wide range of operations from welding, laser-cutting and frame-bending, to polishing and assembly. You'll see fenders and fuel tanks being formed, newly painted frames hanging on the line, and sophisticated robotic welding technology. You'll also see the Revolution® powertrain assembled from crankcase to cylinder heads.

Was in the area and seen that you could tour the building. Checked out what was available at the time, the tour was shorter than normal with stuff going on in the factory but still had a great time. Also checked out the gift shop.

We didn't get to see much of the facility. Since they were rolling out 2017 models,so all we got to tour was the paint room, one assembly line, and a brief description.But all-in-all it's understandable. Still a little let down, though.

The free tour through the factory is really interesting. Lots of interesting information about assembly, company history, and employee engagement. As a heads up, Fridays are not full production days so we didn't get to see a lot of assembly actually happening. If you plan...More
