Harley Davidson Electra Glide premium touring motorcycle has been unveiled globally. It will be the most affordable tourer from the Milwaukee-based manufacturer.
Harley Davidson is known for its premium touring motorcycles, starting from as high as 20 Lakhs. It has now unveiled its entry-level touring motorcycle, Electra Glide in the global markets.
It looks similar to the HD’s tourer lineup and is actually called as a ‘Dressed down Dresser’. The reason is that it does not come with high-end technology found in the CVO and Roadking.
Globally, it has been priced at 18,999 USD, which converts to nearly Rs 13.3 Lakhs (ex-showroom prices). It actually is the most affordable model from the lineup.
The Harley Davidson Electra Glide gets the iconic batwing design, saddle bags, chrome detailing and cast aluminium wheels. Although, you can see a bit less chrome detailing compared to the other HD tourers.
The exhaust muffler, engine, suspension setup and engine guard receive chrome treatment. Rest of the components have been blacked out.
Features onboard include Standard electronic Cruise control, hand adjustable rear shock absorbers, dual ABS, Four-pod analogue instrument cluster and a couple more. However, it misses out on the digital cluster, speakers and all the upscale bits.
Harley Davidson Electra Glide Standard uses the Milwaukee Eight 107 engine, which is a 1745cc V-Twin engine. The motor pumps out 65 BHP at 5500 RPM and 150 Nm of peak torque at 3250 RPM. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox with slip and
Braking power comes from 320mm dual-floating discs at the front and a 320mm fixed disc at the back, paired to dual-ABS. The suspension is handled by Showa dual bending valve front suspension hand adjustable emulsion-technology rear shocks
Reports suggest that the India launch is likely to happen in near future. Our expectations say that the Harley Davidson Electra Glide might arrive by 2021.
In India, it will be the cheapest touring motorcycle. Indian Motorcycles, Honda, Moto Guzzi and Harley Davidson sell tourers in the Indian market.
