After a successful launch party of the new Harley-Davidson Petaling Jaya showroom, the new Harley-Davidson (H-D) distributor, Didi Resources, has released the 2018 Malaysia pricing for the entire range of H-D models. For 2018, H-D has three primary model groups – Touring, Softail and Sportster, with four models making up the Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) range.
Special H-D models as are the Police and Trike machines, with the made in India Street 750 and Street Rod rounding up the stable as the entry-level into the H-D lifestyle. Within the line up of the “proper” H-D motorcycles, there are also several anniversary models, celebrating 115 years of the American motorcycle.
Of note is H-D’s new power plant, the Milwaukee 8 V-twin, which comes in three displacements, the 107, which equals 1,750 cc, a 114, displacing 1,870 cc and a 117, coming in at 1,919 cc. All have two spark plugs and four-valves per cylinder, push-rod actuated and the 114 and 117 Milwaukee 8s come with oil- and liquid-cooled heads.
Coming in at a low price of RM56,710 – for a Harley V-twin – is the 2018 Harley-Davidson Street 750 in Vivid Black. As earlier stated, the Street 750 is the base, entry-level model H-D bike, and is targeted at the young rider and developing Asian markets, where it is joined by the 2018 Harley-Davidson Street Rod, which we rode in Singapore.
Moving up in capacity, we come to the Sportster series of bikes, which displace either 1,200 cc or 883 cc. The base model Sportster is the Iron 883, which was reviewed by paultan.org in 2016. There are two variants to the Iron 883 – colour at RM86,072 and Hard Candy paintwork priced at RM89,782.
