Harley-Davidson India has released the first images of its upcoming motorcycle, the 440, ahead of its
launch in our market in 2023. These images give a brief glimpse at this Royal Enfield rivalling
product, along with its hardware and features. The feature list on this India-bound Harley-Davidson
comprises an LED headlight with an integrated LED DRL, LED taillights, LED turn indicators, and a
fully-digital instrument cluster. Notably, the instrument cluster in the images does not indicate a
Bluetooth connectivity function, although this could be available as an optional accessory.
The styling cues are inspired by the Harley-Davidson XR1200, and this budget-friendly vehicle from
the American manufacturer features a round headlight, a round instrument cluster, a flat handlebar,
round-shaped rear-view mirrors, a teardrop-shaped fuel tank with angular edges, and a stubby tail
section. Unlike the X350, which will be sold in the international markets, this India-spec Harley-
Davidson will feature a centrally-mounted instrument cluster, a stylish design for the alloy wheels,
and a round shape for the turn indicators.
The company has not released the mechanical specifications for this motorcyclethe Harley-Davidson
440 yet. However, the teaser images reveal a single-cylinder, air-cooled layout. Notably, the
motorcycle in the images was seen with a 4XX plate, which hints that the motor could pack
approximately 400-450cc of displacement. This motor will be linked to a six-speed gearbox. The
hardware, as seen in the images, comprises upside-down front forks, dual rear springs, and disc
brakes with ByBre-sourced callipers on both wheels. The motorcycle will ride on 17-inch wheels that
would be shod in CEAT Zoom tyres.
This motorcycle has beenwas co-developed with Hero MotoCorp, and it will be manufactured by the
Indian two-wheeler maker. It could be priced in the Rs. 2.5 - 3 lakh (ex-showroom) range, which will
put it against the likes ofof the Royal Enfield Classic 350 and the Meteor 350 in the Indian market.
