The Harley Davidson company has confirmed that they are going to develop a brand new product for the Asian markets and particularly for India. The model will be in the range of 250-500 cc and suited to the demands of the emerging economy. What could this 250-500cc model be? let’s take a look.
The Harley Davidson Softail range features 8 models from Dyna and the CVO range, all of them share the same platform, chassis and the new “Milwaukee 8” engine, either in 107 cubic-inches sizes or 114 cubic-inches one. Right now, Harley is portraying the new Fatbob as its flagship 'Softail' motorcycle but is there any other softail under Rs 15 lakh which is better than this one. Let's find out.
Street range from Harley Davidson motorcycles is the most popular platform in India today. The totality of Harley Davidson’s profit from India comprises a huge number of Street bikes. There is no reason why they shouldn’t be, for a midsize cruiser, the Street series is a good option. Both the bike’s in this range, the Street 750 and the Street Rod are good enough for everyday use. So let’s dive in and take a deep look at these engines.
Since the day of the launch of Harley Davidson Street ROD 750, we have been trying so hard to get our hands on the old Street 750, because unlike the Street ROD, this Harley has a place. It is a cruiser, it has a low slung seat, front set footpegs and raised handlebar. This bike doesn’t seem like a half-done job, it rather feels like the perfect piece of the puzzle, which got overshadowed by a bike out of place and meaning.
Leading American motorcycle manufacturer Harley Davidson added one more bike to its entry level list in the form of Street Rod 750, which was heavily based on the current outgoing Street 750. With two entry level motorcycles under Rs 6 lakhs category, Harley invites budget friendly motorcyclists into the HOG. We here compare and contrast the two motorcycles in terms of mechanical and aesthetical aspects.
Harley Davidson recently launched the new Street Rod 750 globally, while having India as primary market. The bike is mostly based on the outgoing Street 750. There are three colour options available, namely - Olive Gold, Charcoal Denim and Vivid Black. The bike is launched with a price tag of Rs. 5,86,000 (ex showroom Delhi). Below is a detailed overview of the all new Street Rod 750.
For over 100 years, Harley ruled the market with top class bikes, for which people had to be on a waiting list to buy one in the 1990’s. Harley wanted to build a new type of motorcycle so they gave a shot for making a motorcycle that had both speed and styling. The project was code named P4. Harley put up a racing team with a bike named VR1000; the first liquid cooled Harley, where the others were air cooled.
Radials tyres are something that was available from a long time for cars but for bikes, and that too for the Indian market, bike radials were almost unseen. But today many companies like MRF, Michelin and others have brought out radial bike tyres for a pretty reasonable amount. They are of near world class quality and a price that won’t pinch hard for an average Indian.
Handling is something which truly sets apart 2 wheelers from the rest. There are more than one factor working behind the actual handling of a motorbike. However, you can easily make out the layout of any motorcycle either by the chassis/frame of it or by simply the front fork angle.
