New electric motorcycles, e-cycles coming to Harley-Davidson lineup

Harley-Davidson Streetfighter 975

Introducing a new modular 500cc to 1250cc middleweight platform of motorcycles that spans three distinct product spaces and four displacements, starting with the company's first Adventure Touring motorcycle, the Harley-Davidson Pan America 1250, a 1250cc Custom model and a 975cc Streetfighter model, all of which are planned to launch beginning in 2020.

"This new product and broader distribution is meant to fuel Harley-Davidson " s customer access and growth in India, one of the largest, fastest growing markets in the world, and other Asia markets", the company said in a statement.

Coming in 2019 is the LiveWire, Harley-Davidson's first electric motorcycle.

"In total, the company plans More Roads to Harley-Davidson to generate more than $1 billion of incremental annual revenue in 2022 as compared to 2017", said the company.

Harley-Davidson's entry into the small and mid-sized motorcycles segment is not only to expand its customer base but also to one's of the world's largest and fastest-growing markets.

Harley-Davidson also said it is developing "more accessible" offerings in the 250cc to 500cc range for the Asian market.

Yankees nab starting pitcher J.A. Happ in trade with Blue Jays
He is 7-4 with a 2.98 ERA in 19 career games (18 starts) against Boston, including a sparkling 0.84 ERA in two starts this season. Happ has thanked Toronto, Canada and the team's fans for their support during his time with the country's only major-league team.

In India, the company said a growing middle class and product introductions by domestic manufacturers are providing stimulus.

The latest research shows a decline in the average age of motorcyclists, with the Motorcycle Industry Council finding the median age of U.S. motorcycle owners increased from 32 to 47 since 1990. About 46 percent of riders are over 50; only about 10 percent are 30-34. The LiveWire is being hailed as "the first in a broad, no-clutch "twist and go" portfolio of electric two-wheelers created to establish the company as the leader in the electrification of the sport", wrote the company in a press release. It's worth mentioning here that Shedjale is also responsible for designing the Harley-Davidson Street Rod, a sportier iteration of the Harley-Davidson Street 750.

Sales in Canada fell 0.5 per cent over the past 3 months, and are down 4.9 per cent over the past six months.

The new products and strategic initiatives come as Harley-Davidson finds itself in the spotlight.

It is the only USA motorcycle brand, along with Triumph, to survive The Great Depression. Another key part of this bold project is partnering with an Indian manufacturer to create a "small displacement motorcycle bridge" for HD.

It has traditionally always made its bikes in the U.S., but has recently announced it will manufacture bikes destined for Europe outside of the states to avoid European Union tariffs against American imports.
