Harley-Davidson has launched their new flagship model for the Softail range globally.
For their ever-changing Softail range, Harley-Davidson has revealed their new bike called the FXDR 114, which will be the flagship of the range. In America, the FXDR 411 will retail at $21,349 (~₹14.97 lakh).
The new FXDR 411 is powered by the Milwaukee-Eight, 114 V-twin motor that develops 161Nm of torque and is expected to develop around 98bhp. While their Softail range of motorcycles is not known to be light, Harley has tried to keep the weight of the bike down to as low as they could. The bike weighs under 290 kilogrammes, which is achieved by the use of composite components with an aluminium swingarm and subframe.
Additionally, it also features a two-to-one exhaust, the front suspension is an inverted single-cartridge fork, while the dampening duties at the rear are done by an adjustable monoshock. Harley has also given it a new air-intake, modern LED lights, a digital instrument cluster and keyless ignition. And like most Harleys, customisable options are aplenty.
While the bike has just made its international debut, its date of arrival in India is not yet confirmed. However, Harley Davidson India is currently expected to make a huge announcement soon regarding their future plans. The manufacturer is said to be collaborating with an Indian manufacturer for their future lineup of motorcycles, which will feature three new territories for the brand. Harley will build an adventure tourer and an all-electric bike, in addition to a street naked motorcycle.
