2015 Harley-Davidson® Model Lineup Delivers More Rush For The Open Road
CONCORD, ON, Aug. 25, 2014 /CNW/ - Propelled by Project RUSHMORE, the global launch of the Street 750 and Street 500 motorcycles and the electric buzz of Project LiveWire, Harley-Davidson Motor Company (NYSE: HOG) stays hard on the throttle with the introduction of its 2015 model lineup. Combining world-class aerodynamics, exhilarating audio performance, and dialed-in ergonomic fit, Harley-Davidson expands its diverse offering of motorcycles and gives riders more ways than ever before to lead their own pack to the open road.
"The broad 2015 Harley-Davidson model lineup demonstrates our commitment to delivering amazing products to our Customers through world-class, Customer-led product design," said Matt Levatich, President and Chief Operating Officer, Harley-Davidson Motor Company. "We are one with our riders around the world, and everything we do is about delivering what they expect and deserve from Harley-Davidson."
Customer-led innovations for 2015 include:
Road Glide Motorcycle
After a one-year hiatus, the original alternative bagger is back with a new triple vented, frame-mounted fairing that minimizes head buffeting, Dual Reflector Daymaker LED headlamps, and a new handlebar with reduced reach and a new wrist angle for improved ergonomics.
Road Glide Special Motorcycle
The fully-loaded Road Glide Special motorcycle is Factory-equipped with premium Boom! Box infotainment, upgraded suspension, and Reflex linked brakes with an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS).
America's hot-rod swagger rolls even wider with the expansion and dominance of H-D in the three-wheel category. From its mini ape hanger handlebar to its bobtail fenders, the Freewheeler trike fuses custom style and easy-handling performance. The all-new rear body shape gives the Freewheeler trike a low, lean profile.
New Braking System for Softail Models
A new braking system for Softail models delivers improved modulation and responsiveness and decreases hand lever effort by 40 per cent. ABS is now standard on all Softail models and optional on the Slim model. New front brake components include a rigid four-piston fixed front brake caliper with 34 and 32 mm pistons coated to minimize initial displacement, brake pads with high-output friction material, a new master cylinder with a higher mechanical ratio, and a new 300 mm front brake rotor. The caliper and master cylinder have been restyled to enhance the looks of each model.
Electra Glide Ultra Classic Low/Ultra Limited Low Motorcycles
Harley-Davidson takes fit further with a package of ergonomic enhancements that offer the lowest seat height and highest rider confidence available in a premium touring bike, combined with a full complement of Project RUSHMORE features and classic Harley-Davidson style.
CVO Street Glide Motorcycle
Boasting a new Boom! Audio system backed by 600 watts of power streaming through four bi-amped front and rear three-way speakers, this limited-production bagger is a rolling concert venue that delivers shocking volume and outstanding sonic quality. Top it off with an intricate paint scheme and the added exclusivity of four colour options.
CVO Road Glide UltraMotorcycle
Drenched in chrome and custom paint, this super-premium Touring motorcycle offers world-class aerodynamics, luxury touring essentials, and the unrelenting performance of a Screamin' Eagle Twin-Cooled Twin Cam 110 engine.
Across its 2015 model lineup, Harley-Davidson offers fresh style with eight new paint colours, including new Custom colours Black Magic and Radioactive Green and new Hard Candy Custom metal flake colours Cancun Blue Flake and Quicksilver Flake.
When it comes to customization, the Harley philosophy is the more the better and it is pushing the limits even farther. This year, Harley-Davidson is adding hundreds of new Genuine Motor Parts & Accessories and making its digital Bike Builder tool even more massive. There are also new Genuine MotorClothes jackets, boots, helmets, shirts, and more to add to the shopping cart.
