Forthcoming Made-In-India Harley Davidson Bike First Images Surface Online

The first photos of the made-in-India Harley-Davidson motorcycle have been released online, unveiling several details about the future model.

Revealing Important Details of the Upcoming Iconic Model

The truly innovative Harley-Davidson design seems to have been influenced by the XR1200. The motorbike is outfitted with a circular LED headlight and a single-pod digital instrument dashboard. In addition, it has a stepped seat and large handlebars for an upright riding position.

This all-new powerful rider is equipped with the following elements:

  • Powered by a single-cylinder 400cc engine.
  • All-LED lights, a USD fork, and a digital display are included.
  • Design of a neo-retro cruiser with a neutral rider triangle.


This revolutionary Harley-Davidson is backed by a 400-odd-cc single-cylinder air/oil-cooled engine. The license plate number displayed on the bike reads Hd 4xx, which might be a hint that the engine power is greater than 400cc. With Harley's legendary 883cc V-twin, this could potentially be a 440cc single.

We don't yet know what the output figures will be. Still, considering the relatively low redline, this engine will most likely prioritize torque and mid-range efficiency over a high power figure.

Instead of a traditional telescopic fork, Harley receives a USD fork. In addition, the rear shock absorbers are more conventional, with advanced springs and piggyback reservoirs.


The bike has USD forks up front and Bybre disc brakes on both sides. A round, the completely digital display is visible. Whether it's an LCD or a TFT unit is a mystery. This potential entrant Harley features LED lights throughout. The LED headlamp features a horizontal DRL in the centre, while the rectangular tail light is identical to the Yamaha FZ-X, though with some larger round indicators.


It relies on CEAT Zoom Cruz tyres (as seen on several RE variants), with a 140-section rear tyre displayed. The front wheel appears bigger than the rear, and the alloy design is similar to that found on Harley-big Davidson cruisers. 

The rider triangle seems rather moderate, with the footpegs not positioned particularly forward. It appears that it will receive a pillion seat (likely as an optional one) as well as the RTO-mandated saree guard. 

One of the posted photographs depicts the motorbike bent over fairly far alone without footpegs scratching the ground, indicating that this could be a pleasant bike.

What Makers Have to Say?

Fitting and quality levels are significantly superior to those found on early designs or rough test mules, showing that this motorbike is almost prepared for mass production. We anticipate this motorbike to be released shortly, based on how closely to production-spec it appears in the photographs below.

We foresee this potential entrant Harley-Davidson to be pitched competitively when it is released, and it appears to be aiming squarely at Royal Enfield. Therefore, anticipate a pricing range of Rs 2.5 lakh or less. 

Furthermore, it would be exciting to see how Harley's closest place this bike against the Royal Enfield Classic 350, which currently sells at Rs 1.93 lakh and Rs 2.21 lakh (ex-showroom, Chennai).
