The document or documents containing the information specified in Part I are not required to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) as part of this Registration Statement on Form S-8 and will be sent or given to participants in the Harley-Davidson, Inc. 2022 Aspirational Incentive Stock Plan as specified by Rule 428(b)(1) under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).

PART II
INFORMATION REQUIRED IN THE REGISTRATION STATEMENT

Item 3. Incorporation of Documents by Reference.

The following documents, filed by Harley-Davidson, Inc. (hereinafter referred to as the “Company” or the “Registrant”) with the Commission pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), are incorporated herein by reference and deemed to be a part hereof:

(a) The Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022, filed on February 24, 2023;

(b) The Company’s Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarterly periods ended March 31, 2023, June 30, 2023, and September 30, 2023 filed on May 10, 2023, August 9, 2023 and November 8, 2023, respectively;

(c) The Company’s Current Reports on Form 8-K filed (in all filings, excluding any portions furnished under Item 2.02 or Item 7.01 and any exhibits included with such Items, as applicable) on April 12, 2023, May 22, 2023 (as amended on September 28, 2023) and June 27, 2023; and

(d) The description of the Company’s common stock contained in Item 4 of the Company’s Registration Statement of Certain Successor Issuers on Form 8-B, dated June 21, 1991, including any amendment or report filed for the purpose of updating such description (including the description of Registrant’s securities filed as Exhibit 4.22 to the Registrant’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019).

All other documents subsequently filed by the Company pursuant to Section 13(a), 13(c), 14 and 15(d) of the Exchange Act prior to the filing of a post-effective amendment to this Registration Statement that indicates that all securities offered have been sold or that deregisters all securities that remain unsold shall be deemed to be incorporated by reference in this Registration Statement and to be a part hereof from the date of filing of such documents.

Any statement contained in a document incorporated or deemed incorporated herein by reference shall be deemed to be modified or superseded for the purpose of this Registration Statement to the extent that a statement contained herein or in any subsequently filed document which also is, or is deemed to be, incorporated herein by reference modifies or supersedes such statement. Any such statement so modified or superseded shall not be deemed, except as so modified or superseded, to constitute a part of this Registration Statement.

Item 4. Description of Securities.

Not applicable.

Item 5. Interests of Named Experts and Counsel.

None.

Item 6. Indemnification of Directors and Officers.




Article V of the Company’s By-laws, as amended, requires that the Company must, to the fullest extent permitted or required by Sections 180.0850 to 180.0859 of the Wisconsin Business Corporation Law (the “WBCL”), including any amendments to the WBCL (but only to the extent an amendment permits or requires the Company to provide broader indemnification rights than prior to the amendment), indemnify the Company’s directors and officers against any and all liabilities, and pay or reimburse any and all properly documented reasonable expenses, incurred in any proceedings to which any director or officer is a party because he or she is or was a director or officer. The Company must also indemnify an employee who is not a director or officer, to the extent that the employee has been successful on the merits or otherwise in defense of a proceeding, for all expenses incurred in the proceeding if the employee was a party because he or she is or was an employee. The Company may, but is not required to, supplement the rights to indemnification against liabilities and allowance of expenses under this paragraph by the purchase of insurance on behalf of any one or more of the directors, officers or employees, whether or not the Company would be required or permitted to indemnify or allow expenses to a director, officer or employee.

The indemnification provided by the WBCL and the Company’s by-laws, as amended, is not exclusive of any other rights to which a director or officer may be entitled. The general effect of the indemnification provisions may be to reduce the circumstances in which an officer or director may be required to bear the economic burden of the liabilities and expense.

The Company maintains a liability insurance policy for its directors and officers as permitted by Wisconsin law which may extend to, among other things, liability arising under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

Item 7. Exemption from Registration Claimed.

Not applicable.

Item 8. Exhibits.

The exhibits filed herewith or incorporated herein by reference are set forth in the Exhibit Index that appears below.

Item 9. Undertakings.

(a) The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes:

(1) To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this Registration Statement:

(i)    To include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3) of the Securities Act;

(ii)    To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events arising after the effective date
of the Registration Statement (or the most recent post-effective amendment
thereof) which, individually or in the aggregate, represent a fundamental
change in the information set forth in the Registration Statement; and

(iii)    To include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution
not previously disclosed in the Registration Statement or any material
change to such information in the Registration Statement;

provided, however, that paragraphs (a)(1)(i) and (a)(1)(ii) of this section do not apply if the information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those paragraphs is contained in reports filed with or furnished to the Commission by the Registrant pursuant to Section 13 or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act that are incorporated by reference in this Registration Statement.

(2) That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.




(3) To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the termination of the offering.

(4) That, for the purpose of determining liability of the Registrant under the Securities Act to any purchaser in the initial distribution of the securities, in a primary offering of securities of the Registrant pursuant to this Registration Statement, regardless of the underwriting method used to sell the securities to the purchaser, if the securities are offered or sold to such purchaser by means of any of the following communications, the Registrant will be a seller to the purchaser and will be considered to offer or sell such securities to such purchaser:

(i)    Any preliminary prospectus or prospectus of the Registrant relating to the
offering required to be filed pursuant to Rule 424 under the Securities Act;

(ii)    Any free writing prospectus relating to the offering prepared by or on behalf
of the Registrant or used or referred to by the Registrant;

(iii)    The portion of any other free writing prospectus relating to the offering
containing material information about the Registrant or its securities
provided by or on behalf of the Registrant; and

(iv)    Any other communication that is an offer in the offering made by the
Registrant to the purchaser.

(b) The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each filing of the Registrant’s annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act that is incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

(c) Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the Registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the Registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the Registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the Registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the Registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.

In connection with our representation, we have examined: (a) the Aspirational Incentive Plan, (b) the Registration Statement, including the exhibits (including those incorporated by reference) constituting a part of the Registration Statement; (c) the Restated Articles of Incorporation and the Amended and Restated By-Laws of the Company, each as amended to date; (d) the resolutions of the Company’s Board of Directors relating to the Aspirational Incentive Plan and the issuance of the Shares thereunder; and (e) such other corporate proceedings, documents and records as we have deemed necessary or appropriate to enable us to render this opinion. We have also assumed the accuracy of all other information provided to us by the Company during the course of our investigations on which we have relied in issuing the opinion expressed below. In our examination of the above-referenced documents, we have assumed the genuineness of all signatures, the authenticity of all documents, certificates and instruments submitted to us as originals and the conformity with the originals of all documents submitted to us as copies. Based on the foregoing, we are of the opinion that the Shares, if and when issued by the Company pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Aspirational Incentive Plan and as contemplated by the Registration Statement, will be legally issued, fully paid and nonassessable. With respect to the foregoing opinion, at one time, Section 180.0622(2)(b) of the Wisconsin Business Corporation Law imposed personal liability upon shareholders for debts owing to employees of the Company for services performed, but not exceeding six months’ service in any one case. This statutory provision was repealed by 2005 Wisconsin Act 474, which provided that the repeal applies to debts incurred on or after June 14, 2006.
