Harley Davidson X440
Harley Davidson is ready to launch its most reasonable motorcycle to hit the Indian market this July. Priced between Rs. 2.50 Lakhs – Rs. 3.0 Lakhs, this brand-new motorbike has been co-developed with Hero MotoCorp and was off-late spotted in Himachal. Taking a closer peek, we can see that the design of the X440 is very similar to a small Harley Davidson. Featuring neo-retro elements with a tear-drop fuel tank as well as some muscular bits too. The manufacturer is utilizing all-LED lighting, so a circular headlamp is present in the front, round turn indicators and at the rear a slim tail lamp.
A circular digital instrument cluster which may come along with some type of Bluetooth connectivity. The switch gear has a premium look thanks to the manufacturer’s special attention to detail. Harley Davidson lettering present inside the headlamp.
When it comes to hardware, USD forks are there in the front and at the rear twin shock absorbers. Harley Davidson is utilizing 17-inch alloy wheels covered with MRF Zapper Hyke tyres. Braking responsibilities are carried out by discs both in front and rear. On offer there will also be a dual-channel ABS.
The riding spot is very comfortable with a wide handlebar and mid-set footpegs to take you on a long smooth adventure. With a narrow single-piece unit quite narrow towards the front and is a bit curved. The back seat rider receives a split grab rail.
The engine is air cooled since it is built to a cost but expected to produce 20 bhp and 27 Nm or higher. Likewise, the name the bike is expected to be 440cc. The red-line is set to 8000 rpm so the engine may be a long stroke unit tuned for low-end torque deliverance.
