The all-new product from a Hero-Harley alliance - the X440, has launched at a reasonable pricing of Rs 2.29 lakh (Introductory) in India. Denim, Vivid, and S are the three variants of the Harley-Davidson X440. The first 'Denim' is the standard version, costing Rs 2.29 lakh, whereas the 'Vivid' is the mid-spec model, which is priced at Rs. 2.49 lakh. The last but not the least, the 'S ' is the top-end version, which has a price tag of Rs 2.69 lakh. All are ex-showroom prices. The three variants of the retro roadster get a range of things in common, but there are a few differences too. So, without further ado, let's look at all three Harley-Davidson X440 variations, which are now available on sale in the Indian market.
Harley-Davidson X440 Denim
The Denim is the base variant, which costs the least in the X440 lineup at Rs 2.29 lakh (ex-showroom). It rolls on wire-spoke wheels and has gas-filled dual shock absorbers with a 7-step preload adjustment at the rear and KYB 43 mm dual cartridge USD forks up front. At its ends, the X440 uses disc brakes measuring 320 mm (F) and 240 mm (R). On the appearance front, it has the same LED headlight as its counterparts but features stickers on the fuel tank rather than the 3D logo like the S trim. The model does come with a TFT screen but without Bluetooth compatibility. This Bluetooth capability with the device is only available with the top-spec S variant. Further, the standard version only has a single Mustard Denim paint job.
Harley-Davidson X440 Vivid
The mid-spec Vivid has a price of Rs 2.49 lakh, ex-showroom. In terms of cost, it is expensive by Rs 20,000 from the Harley-Davidson X440 standard variant. The Vivid rides on multi-spoke alloy wheels, unlike the standard Denim version, which rolls on spoke wheels with tube-type tyres. Additionally, it comes in two paint options, Metallic Thick Red and Metallic Dark Silver. Apart from this, it gets the same auto LED headlamp, TFT display, KYB suspension, and more features as the X440 Denim.
Harley-Davidson X440 S
The X440 S, the most expensive model, has a sticker price of Rs. 2.69 (ex-showroom, Delhi). It costs Rs 40,000 and Rs 20,000 more than the Denim and Vivid models, respectively. It has more technology and features because it is a high-end version. To start, it has a 3D symbol on the fuel tank, which is not present in its competitors' models. It rides on alloy multi-spoke wheels, the same as the mid-spec variant, except these have a diamond-cut finish. The 3.5-inch TFT digital display gets a Connect 2.0 package, which includes smartphone connectivity, turn-by-turn instructions, music control, and other capabilities. Additionally, the S model gets Matte Black paint job with orange highlights.
