- Hero MotoCorp and Harley-Davidson have joined forces to create a new made-in-India motorcycle that is set to take on competitors in the Indian market, such as the Royal Enfield Hunter 350 and Honda CB350RS.
- The upcoming motorcycle will feature advanced technology and modern design elements, including USD forks, LED headlights, and a circular TFT instrument cluster, along with a powerful 400+cc engine and a neutral riding stance.
Hero MotoCorp has released photographs of the future made-in-India Harley-Davidson motorcycle, which appears to be a viable opponent to the Royal Enfield Hunter 350 and Honda CB350RS motorcycles marketed in India.
This latest Harley-Davidson motorcycle is a cooperation between Harley-Davidson and Hero MotoCorp. The motorcycle, however, was created at the former’s headquarters in Milwaukee, but testing and development were done by Hero MotoCorp in India to keep the price low.
With its muscular fuel tank and circular features such as headlights, turn indicators and the instrument cluster, the future made-in-India Harley-Davidson motorcycle appears to be a fairly attractive-looking neo-retro motorcycle based on the photographs.
Having said that, these fresh photographs show that the future made-in-India Harley-Davidson motorbike will have USD forks in the front, twin gas-charged shock absorbers in the back, LED headlights with LED DRL, a circular TFT instrument cluster, front and rear disc brakes and more.
It’s also worth noting that the impending made-in-India Harley-Davidson motorcycle will most likely include features like Bluetooth connectivity, rider modes, and telemetry data, the latter of which will be accessible via a dedicated app.
In addition, the number plate on the photographed made-in-India Harley-Davidson motorcycle reads “HD 4XX.” This suggests that the future Harley-Davidson motorbike built in India could have a 400+cc, single-cylinder, oil-cooled powerplant. Its engine is expected to produce strong low-end torque and a thumping exhaust note.
These photographs of the made-in-India Harley-Davidson motorcycle also show a neutral riding stance, mid-set foot pegs and a broad handlebar. In addition, the motorcycle appears to have an 18-inch front tyre and a smaller 17-inch rear tyre.
We anticipate that the next made-in-India Harley-Davidson motorbike will be priced higher than the Honda CB350RS and Royal Enfield Hunter 350, at roughly Rs 2.5 lakh. Other from that, the made-in-India Harley-Davidson motorcycle appears to be production-ready, and the model might be released in India soon.
