Road Glide Special is an addition to the touring portfolio and brings the all-new Milwaukee-Eight engine to India. It has an all-out aggressive style and offers improved mileage. The Roadster on the other hand, is a minimalist, fastback design inspired by classic racing motorcycles and combines power, agility and garage-built custom style. A part of the Sportster family, it will be locally assembled in India. The entry level Street 750 also features a few changes in its 2017 avatar, including a new tank badge and optional two-tone schemes. It is priced at INR 4.91 lacs (ex-showroom Delhi).
The newly introduced Milwaukee-Eight is a more powerful engine that provides quicker throttle response, purer sound, a smoother ride and an improved motorcycling experience, while retaining the iconic look, sound and feel of its predecessors. It is an 8-valve design (4 valves per cylinder) and comes in two displacements and two variations:
– Milwaukee-Eight 107 (107 CID, 1745cc) featuring precision oil-cooled cylinder heads for the Street Glide Special, Road Glide Special and Road King.
– Twin-Cooled Milwaukee-Eight 114 (114 CID,1870cc) featuring liquid-cooled cylinder heads for the CVO Limited.
The 2017 Touring models will also feature new front and rear suspension components for enhanced comfort, control and performance. Further, all 13 Harley-Davidson motorcycles in India will now be equipped with anti-lock braking system as standard.
The new lineup will be available at all 23 Harley-Davidson dealerships across 20 cities in India.
