Harley-Davidson rolls out Roadster and Road Glide models in India

The most popular American motorcycle manufacturer “Harley-Davidson” has recently updated their product range in India with the launch of all new Roadster and Road Glide models for the upcoming year. Both the product lineup got an upgrade with the massive Milwaukee-Eight V-Twin engines which are capable of producing an enormous amount of torque at really very high RPM, though the specifications and features differ for both the models.
Harley Davidson first introduced the Roadster which is based on the popular Forty Eight model, it is housed with mighty 1200cc V-Twin Evolution air cooled engine capable of producing 96Nm peak torque at 4000rpm and counting on the features, it gets upside down forks at the front and dual disc brakes with larger wheels.
Another model which was added to the recent product line up is the 2017 Road Glide Special, it is fitted with a mightier motor than its sibling, i.e. 1753cc V-Twin liquid cooled engine which is capable of producing 150Nm torque at 3250rpm. It has got some unique features in its segment such has a 6.5 inch touch screen infotainment system along with a BOOM!TM 6.5 GT audio system, keyless ignition and also with an adjustable rear suspension system.
Coming to the prices, both the models are priced very competitively with Rs 9.70lakhs (ex-Showroom New Delhi) for the Roadster and Rs 32.81lakhs (ex-showroom New Delhi) for the 2017 Road Glide Special models respectively.
The company has also proposed a concept of adding the all new Milwaukee-Eight V-Twin engines to its entire Touring range of bikes consisting of Road King, Road Glide Special and the Street Glide Special. The Milwaukee-Eight V-Twin engine is the recent addition of the company which comes with three different states of tune, with each variant capable of producing 10% more power than its predecessors.
The company has also planned to put some cosmetic updates to its entire touring range in the form of two new colour schemes: Vivid Black and Fiery Red along with ABS and a new badge on the tank.
These all new features will surely add on to the brand value of “Harley-Davidson” in India at least for the next few years.
