The company is offering heavy discounts in order to clear the stocks as 2018 line up is awaited
Renowned lifestyle cruiser maker, Harley-Davidson, has just dropped the prices of two motorcycles in the Indian two-wheeler market. The American manufacturer has slashed the prices of 2017 Fat Boy and Heritage Softail Classic. While the former sees a price dip of Rs. 2 lakh, the latter can now be owned with a discount of Rs. 2.5 lakh.
The Fat Boy is now available at the company’s dealerships across India at a price of Rs. 14.9 lakh as against its earlier sticker tag of Rs. 17.1 lakh. On the other hand, the Heritage Softail Classic is now retailed at a price of Rs 15.9 lakh in comparison to its previous price of Rs. 18.5 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom, Delhi).
These prices are applicable for the 2017 models only and are valid till the stock lasts. The company had introduced its new 2018 model range globally a few days back. The slash in prices of the two Harley Davidson bikes in India is an indication that the manufacturer is making way for the 2018 family.
For this reason, it is offering lucrative discounts so that no older stock is available on the arrival of newcomers. The upcoming 2018 Harley-Davidson range will offer eight models in the Softail range. The company has also introduced the fresh models of its high capacity cruisers like the Sportster and the top-of-the-line CVO Limited.
Moreover, Harley-Davidson has removed the V-Rod from its 2018 line up. The retirement of the bike comes as a result of constant poor sales along with its non-compliance with the Euro-IV emission norms.
The V-Rod was particularly known for its styling and was indeed a unique Harley for a number of reasons. The stand out features of the Harley-Davidson V-Rod include an underseat fuel tank, a hydroformed tubular frame and an airbox that mimics the conventional fuel tank at the front.
