Harley-Davidson thinks its riders are ready for a three-wheeled hog.

The iconic motorcycle maker said Friday it will begin making three-wheeled motorcycles, also called trikes, in partnership with Lehman Trikes U.S.A.

Spearfish, S.D.-based Lehman already converts motorcycles made by Harley and other manufacturers into trikes, but the new line will be branded as Harley-Davidson and sold by its dealers.

Milwaukee-based Harley-Davidson Inc. did not release further details about the new bikes or when they would be released.

Harley is continually looking to develop new products and expand the appeal of its brand, said Harley-Davidson Vice President Ron Hutchinson.

"Trikes are another way we can inspire the dream of owning a Harley-Davidson," he said.

Lehman Trikes U.S.A. is a subsidiary of Lehman Trikes Inc. of Canada. The company has made trikes for more than 20 years.
