Harley-Davidson has revealed its new motorcycle line-up, which the manufacturer says is the result of an intense four-year product-development programme driven by global customer feedback and insight and backed by thousands of riding miles and unprecedented rider and employee input.
The so-called 'Project RUSHMORE' is said to revolutionise the existing four models available in the Touring family: Road King Classic, Street Glide, Electra Glide Ultra Classic and Electra Glide Ultra Limited, while maintaining an evolutionary feel to the iconic styling of the motorcycles. The overhaul to the Touring platform also sees a limited amount of Trikes made available in the UK in 2014.
In addition, the manufacturer has also introduced ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) for all Sportster models. The Sportster line up also features new hand controls and brake components, improved service access, and a H-D Smart Security System with a proximity-based, hands-free security fob.
As well as all this, the Dark Custom styling of the Fat Bob model has had a make-over - highlights include a new slash-cut rear fender with a recessed twin-ring LED tail light and black replaces chrome everywhere, including the powertrain, air cleaner cover, rear shock covers, triple clamps, headlight trim rings, console and battery box cover.
Finally, the 2014 CVO series of limited-production motorcycles features the new CVO Softail Deluxe model, a premium custom touring motorcycle equipped with a detachable windscreen and GPS navigation, Daymaker LED lighting, detachable saddlebags and of course the customary bold paint and big Screamin’ Eagle 110cc powertrain. The CVO Road King and CVO Ultra Limited return with new features and Project RUSHMORE enhancements, while the bold CVO Breakout chopper returns with three dazzling new paint schemes.
