Oxford(21st August, 2018) – The all-out performance of the new 2019 Harley-Davidson® FXDR™ 114 sets the pace for Harley-Davidson's new 2019 motorcycles, accessories and gear that deliver fresh style, thrilling performance and advanced technology.

Less than a month after announcing plans for future product in new-to-the-brand categories and a commitment to advance its heavyweight Touring and Cruiser models, the Motor Company introduces a suite of new products that will continue to inspire people around the world to experience the exhilaration of riding a Harley-Davidson®.

Heather Malenshek, Harley-Davidson Vice President of Marketing: “Harley-Davidson innovation is infused in all of the new products we are offering for 2019. Innovation in design, innovation in technology, and innovation in performance will inspire Harley-Davidson fans and a new generation of riders to share the wide-open freedom of motorcycling.

2019 FXDR 114

The FXDR 114 is an unapologetic power cruiser that brings a new level of performance to the Harley-Davidson line up. The FXDR 114 combines the unrelenting power of the Milwaukee-Eight®  114ci (1868cc) engine with liberal use of weight-saving aluminium and composite components, including new aluminium swingarm and subframe, lightweight wheels and composite mudguards to amplify every aspect of its agile handling and performance.

The FXDR 114 is equipped with the most-powerful engine offered in the Softail® chassis, a Milwaukee-Eight 114 V-Twin tuned to punch out up to 119 ft-lb. of torque at 3,500 rpm (U.S. model). The strong – and rigid – Softail chassis and premium suspension components will reward assertive riders with thrilling agility when riding through twisting backroads and navigating congested urban traffic. The FXDR 114 offers more lean angle than any other Softail model.

Visually, the FXDR 114 communicates its commitment to performance through design inspirations from the drag strip – from a moulded speed screen to a clipped tail section and solo seat. The rear mudguard is shaped to hug a massive 240mm tyre and moves with the tyre through the range of the suspension, so becomes almost invisible when the FXDR 114 is in motion. Further information can be found on the accompanying FXDR 114 release.

2019 TOURING AND TRIKE

Harley-Davidson continues to advance its Touring and Trike models with technology that elevates performance, function and style.

All-new infotainment system

The new Boom! Box™ GTS infotainment system for select Harley-Davidson Touring and Trike motorcycles offers the contemporary look, feel and function of the latest mobile devices and tablets, with durability and features designed specifically for motorcycling, plus Apple CarPlay compatibility (when a microphone is in use with optional Harley-Davidson® Genuine Motor Accessories headsets) and hands-free voice recognition.

Sophisticated handling package for Trike range

The all-new electronic Reflex Linked Brake system for 2019 Harley-Davidson Tri-Glide™ Ultra and Freewheeler™ three-wheeled motorcycles incorporates Antilock Braking System (ABS), Traction Control System (TCS), Drag-Torque Slip Control System (DSCS) and linked front and rear braking system; features that work together to inspire greater rider confidence.

All-new premium Harley-Davidson Touring suspension technology gives the 2019 Harley-Davidson Tri-Glide Ultra and Freewheeler a significant improvement in ride quality and ease of spring preload adjustment.

114ci Milwaukee-Eight powertrains

Select 2019 Harley-Davidson Touring and Trike motorcycles will be powered by the Milwaukee-Eight 114 engine. At 114 cubic inches (1868cc), the Milwaukee-Eight 114 engine has the most displacement offered from the Harley-Davidson factory in standard model motorcycles and delivers strong acceleration and overtaking performance.

2019 LIMITED EDITION CVO RANGE

Three limited-production 2019 Harley-Davidson® Custom Vehicle Operations™ (CVO) motorcycles offer show-stopping finishes, advanced technology, exclusive components and extreme attention to detail. The high-performance Milwaukee-Eight® 117 engine is exclusive to CVO models and the new Boom!™ Box GTS infotainment system is standard on each 2019 CVO™ model.

Harley-Davidson® Authorised Dealerships are the customisation experts equipped to help select and install Harley-Davidson® Genuine Motor Parts & Accessories.

Highlights for 2019 include:

The 7-inch Daymaker® Adaptive LED headlight utilises patented sensors and electronics integrated into the headlight to determine lean angle of the motorcycle, and automatically project additional light into corners to illuminate areas of the road that may be unlit by traditional LED headlights.

This collection is offered in gloss black anodised and bronze powder coated base colours and features interchangeable trim pieces in brushed black, bronze powder coated, brushed orange anodised or brushed aluminium that can be added in any combination.

New Screamin’ Eagle Timer Cover & Inserts for the Milwaukee-Eight engine show off “what’s inside…” with a premium metal medallion labelled with 107, 114 or 117 displacements and the Stage level.
