The motorcycle company says it’s consolidating its test operations from Talladega, Naples, Florida, and Mesa, Arizona to the Arizona Proving Grounds in Yucca, Arizona.
Pat Sweeney, a spokesman for Harley-Davidson, could not provide a date when the facility would close, but did say it would be sometime next year.
Sweeney says the Talladega facility has just under 70 Harley-Davidson employees, Sweeney said, as well as just under 40 contract workers.
The facility performs several kinds of vehicle testing, including emissions, brake, sound, durability and automated vehicle tests. High-speed tests are often performed at the Talladega SuperSpeedway.
