What gives Harley its sound?
Harley claims the “potato” sound stems from its traditional engine configuration, a V-twin with a 45-degree angle between the cylinders and a single crankshaft pin that holds the two pistons. The spark plugs fire at uneven intervals, contributing to the cadence Harley describes as “pop, pop, pause.”
Does Harley have a patent on their sound?
A good example is the motorcycle brand Harley-Davidson, which, in 1994, filed a sound trademark application for its distinctive V-twin engine sound. Just like a visual logo, the most essential qualities of a sound logo are uniqueness, memorability, and relevancy to the brand promise.

Why do Harleys sound bad?
Why are Harleys so loud? Many Harleys are loud because the owners want them that way. New Harleys from the factory don’t exceed the 80db limit stipulated in the U.S. EPA Code. It is Harley owners who make several aftermarket modifications on their bikes to turn up the volume.
Can a smell be trademarked?
Yes, you can trademark an odor if it is not a functional aspect of the product. For example, a trademark for plumeria scent for sewing thread was registered in 1990. Anything that is considered to be a functional aspect of a product is not subject to the protection of a trademark.
Can a smell mark be trademarked?
The ‘smell’ per se cannot qualify to be trademarked, without the needed association with a commodity. Although not enforceable as an authority of law, The Indian Draft Manual of Trade Marks, 2015, enumerates the same standards requiring graphical representation, as laid down in the Sieckmann case.
