Harley-Davidson India unveils two new Softail motorcycles

Harley-Davidson® India unveiled two new Softail® motorcycles in India – Low Rider® and Deluxe, both of which will be available from 1st March 2018. These two new launches are in addition to four MY18 Softail® models launched in October 2017. The aggressively styled 2018 Softail® models are faster, lighter and better handling than any of their Big Twin cruiser predecessors.

The new motorcycles feature a stiffer and significantly lighter frame built to harness the high torque output of the new dual-counterbalanced Milwaukee-Eight® 107 engine. 

At the launch event, Peter MacKenzie, Managing Director, Harley-Davidson® India and China said, “The Indian market has evolved and customers look forward to innovation in technology and comfort. This is evident from the growth in the leisure riding segment for premium motorcycles. We have received an excellent response to the MY18 Softail® lineup so far and we are excited to introduce these two new models that demonstrate our focus on reinventing products for motorcycle enthusiasts and aspiring riders in the country.”
