Harley-Davidson has updated its cruiser range in India with the launch of 13 models. The list of these newly introduced motorcycles includes the Street 750 ABS and Roadster along with the new Milwaukee-Eight range.
The Roadster is the top of the line Sportster model in Harley-Davidson’s line-up.

It is powered by a 1202cc air-cooled V-twin engine, which delivers 103Nm of torque. It has been priced at Rs 9.7 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The other two Sportster models – Forty-Eight and 1200 Custom have been updated with new paint schemes.
The Street 750 ABS on the other hand, is mechanically identical to the outgoing model. Apart from ABS, it also comes with a smart security system that is controlled by a proximity key-fob and new dual-tone paint schemes. These updates have bumped the price of the Street 750 by Rs 40,000 and it now retails at Rs 4.91 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
