Primed to launch on July 3, the roadster will be made in India and offer an affordable entry into the Harley-Davidson catalogue.

While details are still thin, the motorcycle looks to be packing a 440cc single-cylinder unit, which could make around 38PS of power and 30Nm of torque, putting it right against the upcoming Royal Enfield Hunter 450 and the Triumph-Bajaj bike.

What we do know is the motorcycle will get all-LED lighting, a TFT instrument cluster, a comfortable rider’s triangle and a rather attractive design.

Knowing Hero’s strategy of pricing their models competitively, we expect the Harley-Davidson bike to costs under Rs 3 lakh (ex-showroom) mark.
