Heavy Weight HD Cruisers
All the Harley Davidson huge machines have been known for their weight, as every bike weighs no less than any 800 cc power mill. However, after 13 years the company has launched a stylish pair of cruise bikes at EICMA (November, 2013) in Milan.
One thing that makes the twin motorcycles very special for the Indian market is the fact that India is going to be one of the two producer markets for these heavy machines. The bikes will be assembled at a plant in Bawal, Haryana, India. The best reason to love these brand new versions is that the two cruisers will be the cheapest Harley bikes since the origin of HD. Their launch in India is scheduled by the mid of 2014 and the final announcements for the bikes will be done at Delhi Auto Expo in February.
