Harley-Davidson has announced a complete overhaul of its motorcycle range by venturing into new segments, including an all-new adventure touring model by 2020. Also in the pipeline are two more models, including a middleweight streetfighter and a new Custom model. Harley-Davidson says the company will introduce a "new modular 500 cc to 1250 cc middleweight platform of motorcycles that spans three distinct product spaces and four displacements."
The first of these models will be Harley-Davidson's first adventure touring motorcycle, the Harley-Davidson Pan America 1250. For 2020, Harley-Davidson has planned three models in all - the Pan America 1250, a 1250 cc Custom model, designed on the lines of a Bobber, as well as a Streetfighter with a 975 cc engine. All three models are expected to be launched by 2020.
Harley-Davidson has made another major announcement, confirming that it is working on a brand new small capacity motorcycle for Asia and especially for India. The big news here is that Harley-Davidson will be entering into a strategic partnership with an Asia-based two-wheeler company for manufacturing the 250 cc- 500 cc motorcycles, without mentioning who the new partner will be. Harley-Davidson hasn't yet confirmed what kind of motorcycle, the new small displacement model will be. After Harley's announcement, we are hoping that it will be something other than a cruiser.
