Harley Davidson FXDR 114 India Launch could happen in late 2019 as a CBU
Just some time ago, Harley-Davidson had announced their plans for the future and now they have unveiled a new cruiser called as the FXDR 114. This new power cruiser is powered with a Milwaukee-Eight 114 V Twin Motor and it is based on Harleys Softail Chassis. Also to make this Harleys most performance oriented motorcycle, it gets some lightweight components and the chassis is also revamped.
As Harley Davidson suggests, this cruiser looks like a “drag racer crossed with a fighter jet”. Aesthetically, the FXDR-114 does look muscular and also gets a sporty look. Harley has provided it with a tiny bikini fairing which holds the LED turn signals and at the front, it also comes equipped with an LED Daymaker headlamp unit. This power cruiser gets a stretched 16.6-litre fuel tank and when moved downwards we can see the single piece seat which comes with a slight hump as it acts like a backrest.
At the rear, the tail section is chopped which holds the fat 240mm tyre. Keeping cornering in mind, the 2 into 1 exhaust gets a smooth design. Connected to the aluminium swingarm is the tyre hugger, which consists of a licence plate which comes with an integrated tail light unit and turn signals.
Harley Davidson FXDR 114 comes equipped with many aluminium and composite materials parts. Despite all the lightweight parts and all the weight reduction, this cruiser weighs upto 302.9 kg. At the front, this power cruiser gets a single cartridge 43mm inverted fork setup, while at the rear it comes with a Coilover mono-shock suspension setup. Harley has provided the FXDR 114 with a 19-inch aluminium alloy wheel at the front and an 18 inch aluminium alloy wheel at the rear and for optimum grip it gets Michelin Scorcher tyres. Braking duty is taken care by dual 300mm discs at the front and a single disc at the rear.
As we mentioned, the Harley Davidson FXDR 114 comes powered with a 1868cc Milwaukee-Eight 114 V-twin motor. The engine is coupled with a six-speed gearbox which powers the rear wheel. Harley has tuned this engine to generate a massive 161.3 Nm of twist at 3500rpm. This cruiser gets a new air intake system which is inspired from the Screaming Eagle drag bikes.
On the other hand, Harley Davidson is also offering it’s customers an option to add some performance-oriented Screaming Eagle parts that range from Stage 1 to Stage 4. Customers do not have to go worry about the factory warranty as it won’t be voided if these performance parts are installed at Harley Davidson’s authorised dealership.
Harley Davidson has priced the FXDR 114 base variant (ViVi Black paint Scheme) at $21,349 which comes to around Rs 14.93 lakh. We could expect this power cruiser in the Indian Market in a couple of months.
