Harley-Davidson India has launched the 2018 Sportster and Street range in India. The bikes get new colour schemes with a price increase of approximately Rs 2000.
In the Street range, the Street 750 gets red, white, white over grey and red over black which will be sold alongside the older black and matte black colour options. The Street 750 is priced at Rs 5.15 lakhs. Retailing at Rs 6.06 lakhs, the Street Rod gets maroon, blue and off-white for 2018. The older black and olive colours will still be available. Meanwhile, Harley has discontinued the grey colour option on both bikes.
The Sportster range includes the Iron 883, 1200 Custom, Forty-Eight and Roadster. The Iron 883 gets a new grey along with red, black and a unique chameleon colour which is a mix of green and blue. The 1200 Custom’s colour palette is entirely new. The 2018 model sports a black, brown, red, white, grey over black and white over black colour schemes which come with a white stripe at the side of the tank. The Iron 883 is priced at Rs 8.41 lakhs while the 1200 Custom has a Rs 9.77 lakhs price tag.
The Forty-Eight, like the 883 features a unique paint; the bike gets a blue colour option which has graphics with ‘115 years’ marked on it. The bike also features maroon, red, white and a ‘shattered flake’ colour. It is priced at Rs 9.99 lakhs. Harley-Davidson has given the Roadster a colourful makeover. The bike gets a bright yellow and blue colour along with brown and grey. All the paint schemes get the signature Forty-Eight black stripes on the tank. The bike sports a Rs 10.20 lakh price tag.
Since Harley-Davidson dealers still have stock of the 2017 models, we can expect the 2018 range to be brought here once the existing stock is exhausted.
