Auto Expo 2014: Harley-Davidson Street Glide

Heartbeat

Auto Expo 2014 Harley-Davidson Street Glide (4)

As every rider knows, the engine is at the heart of the experience of riding a motorcycle. The amount of torque and horsepower it delivers over the RPM range is in direct proportion to the feeling it gives you when you roll on the throttle. Harley know what riders want from a motorcycle engine because they’ve been building them for 110 years. Project RUSHMORE gave us the opportunity to dial it in just right. Harley conducted thousands of road tests with real riders giving us feedback to build the next iteration of the legendary Harley-Davidson® engine. The consensus was: Harley want more. More low-end torque, more passing power, more perfection in the tone of the exhaust note, more of the feeling we ride a motorcycle for. So Harley built the engines that deliver it. They’re proud to unveil the next level of Harley-Davidson V-Twin engine. And prove once and for all, the customer is always right.

Let’s start with this: When you see the iconic shape of a Harley-Davidson Street Glide Batwing fairing coming at you down the road, it leaves no question that you’re looking at a machine born in Milwaukee and built for gigantic miles of road. But this is about moving forward. How do you maintain that iconic shape, yet give it a sleeker, more progressive style? The answer is right here. The new Batwing fairing gives you less head buffeting (see comfort section for the full story on that) but also the look that instantly announces “Hey, this is a HARLEY-DAVIDSON motorcycle. Of course, Harley didn’t stop at the fairing. The saddlebags got a sleeker new look to match. And Harley worked over the front fender, too – with a clean new look that’s cut back to expose more of the wheel and tire. It all comes together for a look that’s totally new, yet instantly familiar. Welcome to the next generation of Harley-Davidson touring motorcycles.

PRICE: Rs. 29 lakhs
