As a new year is on the horizon, another brand new generation of Harley-Davidson motorcycles arrive to push the boundaries of the industry, with compelling soul and inspiration set to take riders experience to all-new heights. The cover on the 2020 range has finally been lifted and under the veil was a concealed range of class-leading machines, ready to conquer the market. New additions to crowd-favourite ranges and technology that defies convention ensure that this year's releases are one of the most exhilarating line-ups that we've seen - ever.
For the first time ever, Harley-Davidson have launched an electric two-wheel motorcycle, set to establish themselves as pioneers and industry-leaders in the electric motorcycle market. The Livewire™ arrives with breathtaking performance, offering a ride unlike any other. Instantaneous power awaits at the twist of the throttle, with no clutch to control or gears to release, a flick of a wrist is the only restraint between you and adrenaline-pumping power, while the high-voltage battery with innovative rechargeable energy storage system provides an estimated 146 miles of city range. The instantenous torque gives us strong feelings of excitement, especially to our teams at the Reading & Guildford branches, thinking about that immediate power enabling them to carve through London city traffic with minimal effort. Available in a beautiful Vivid Black, Orange Fuse, and Yellow Fuse, the LiveWire motorcycle will be available in select dealerships through Europe in the fall of 2019. Price varies by market.
A collection of technology provided into the new 2020 range is the new Reflex Defensive Rider Systems (RDRS), built to hand riders more confidence and control in less-than-ideal situations. Gather information throughout the ride, the systems utilize advanced control over the chassis, brake and powertrain systems, assisting throughout the road in the acceleration and braking, whether in a straight line or in a turn. Machines also come loaded with the H-D connect service, allowing riders to remain in-touch with their ride via a smartphone app, ensuring you're always in the loop with the information you need, from battery alerts to location and alarm system alerts.
Beyond the Livewire™, a selection of other models add a touch of fiery passion throughout the range. The new Low Rider® S brings an aggressive, blacked-out performance-cruiser, empowered by the torque-rich Milwaukee-Eight 114 engine. Finishing touches cover the frame of the Low Rider® S, offering a style that matches the aggressive and charismatic powerful ride. The Low Rider® S is available in the bold, Vivid Black for £15,825 and Barracuda Silver for £16,175.
For a more comfortable touring experience, riders should look towards the refreshed CVO™ range, offering 3 new models that bring out the best in a truly custom design. The new CVO™ Street Glide, CVO™ Limited and CVO™ Tri Glide make for three of the most inspiring models available in the market for adventure-seekers that look to chase the horizon, whether it's a weekend away with your spouse, or a wolf pack tour throughout the continents of the globe. Capable, comfortable and courageous, the new CVO™ models bring a premium touch, all offering the Milwaukee-Eight 117 V-Twin engine for show-stopping performance. Machines like these were made for escapes to cut ties with your weekly stress and make the most of long summer nights. With us, coastal rides come to mind from our Norwich showroom, offering some of the finest scenic routes on the way, chasing the sunrise (or escaping the sunset if that's what you prefer!)
The CVO™ Tri Glide is available in two premium custom colors, Blizzard White Pearl with Lightning Silver and Storm Cloud or Black Stardust with Magnetic Grey and Wicked Red at £44,995. The CVO™ Limited is £35,595 and is available in three premium paint options: Moonlight and Deep Sea Blue, Smoky Gray & Stormcloud, and Sand Dune. The CVO™ Street Glide is £33,095 and available in three premium paint options: Black Stardust Fade, Smoky Gray and Black Hole, and Sand Dune.
Finally for those grand tours that aim to send the odometer spiralling, the Road Glide Limited offers a finely detailed comfortable touring machine. An incredibly responsive frame and suspension keeps the ride active and fun, while the comfort and luxurious features offered from the BOOM!™ Box GTS infotainment system and the relaxed seating arrangement allows you to relax, read the road comfortably and make your destination merely a stop along your sightseeing adventure. Available in a cool chrome or a bold blacked-out finish straight from the factory, the Road Glide Limited comes in a variety of colors and starting at £24,695.
