According to Indian website Team-BHP.com, this is a picture of a new smaller displacement Harley Davidson. According to Gizmag magazine Harley’s COO, Mathew Levatich actually confirmed the new bike at last weekend’s Harley-Davidson’s 110th anniversary celebrations, saying that the new bike is “nimble, light weight, has a low seat height and supple throttle and braking. I’ve ridden it – it looks great, sounds great, it’s a Harley, and it’s priced right.”
Gizmag went on to report that Levatich added, “We want to get it out as soon as we can, but it’s got to be right. New engines are complicated, and we’ve got to get everything right from a durability, reliability and confidence perspective. On the other hand, chassis and other things are a lot more straightforward.”
The new bike would likely be built at Harley Davidson’s mother plant at Bawal, Haryana, though it seems destined for the Indian market to start, though Levatich reportedly hedged his bets on the possibility of the model arriving on North American soil.
