Harley-Davidson launches its dynamic 2020 lineup

New models and new technologies. This is what highlights the recent launch of 2020 Harley-Davidson motorcycles that just happened in Milwaukee. From the debut of the electric era to the return of a legend, here's everything you need to know about what's to come with your favorite brand! 

SAY HELLO TO THE FUTURE

 

No clutch to release. No gears to shift. Just a flick of the wrist brings to light an all-new motorcycling experience - accessible to new riders and thrilling for accomplished motorcyclists. The all-new LiveWire model delivers the look, feel and unique sound of a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle including top-of-the line components, premium finishes and advanced technology.

Highlights :

  • H-D Revelation powertrain: The all-new electric powertrain is capable of rapid acceleration from 0 to 60 in 3 seconds and 60-80 mph in 1.9 seconds.

  • Rechargeable Energy Storage System (RESS) battery: The high-voltage battery provides up to 235 km of city range or 152 km of combined stop-and-go and highway range as measured using the City and Combined tests*. The RESS has a five-year, unlimited-mileage warranty.

  •  Lightweight frame:  The lightweight cast aluminum frame is extremely rigid, and contributes to the motorcycle's precise, responsive handling.

  • Dynamic handling: High-performance, premium adjustable SHOWA® front and rear suspension components and Brembo® Monoblock front brake calipers give the LiveWire motorcycle dynamic handling.

  • Reflex Defensive Rider Systems: The RDRS utilize Cornering Enhanced Anti-lock Braking System (C-ABS), Cornering Enhanced Traction Control System (C-TCS) and Drag-Torque Slip Control System (DSCS) to give the rider more confidence and control in less-than-ideal situations.

  • Touchscreen display: A 4.3 inch, full-color, liquid-crystal touchscreen display to keep you updated on your speed, range, battery status and more customizable information like music and navigation. 

  • H-D®/Michelin® Scorcher® Sport tires: Premium 180mm rear and 120mm front H-D/Michelin Scorcher Sport tires designed exclusively to enhance the ride and handling performance of this ground-breaking machine.

  • Charging Options: DC Fast Charge (DCFC) technology provides a 0-80 percent of battery charge in 40 minutes or 0-100 percent charge in 60 minutes. Equipped with an on-board Level 1 charger that plugs into a standard 120-volt (or 240-volt) household outlet with a special power cord that stores below the motorcycle seat. Level 1 RPH (range per hour) of charging time is 13 miles for each hour of charging; and a full charge overnight with Level 1 charging. The latest in DC Fast Charge (DCFC) technology is standard and may be used to charge the motorcycle through a SAE J1772 connector, or CCS2 - IEC type 2 charging connector in European and some other international markets.

LOW RIDER® S FXLRS


 
With a thrilling perspective on riding, we're happy to introduce the all-new Low Rider®S model. This new model offers aggressive performance with coastal style roots and Harley-Davidson heritage. Blacked out finishes and a raised handlebar behind a distinctive fairing will appeal to riders who want to roll with plenty of attitude.

  • Milwaukee-Eight® 114 powertrain: Combining the power of the Milwaukee-Eight®114 engine and the capable Softail® chassis with premium suspension components to deliver an experience that connects the rider with the road.

  • Inverted fork: Inverted design stiffens the front end for improved response to steering input. Single-cartridge internal technology responds quickly to inputs and keeps the front wheel planted for improved braking and handling performance.

  • Mono-shock rear suspension: A single coil-over shock with emulsion technology and optimized angle between the frame and swingarm for enhanced travel and response. Equipped with under-seat hydraulic pre-load adjustment to allow the rider to maintain optimal suspension performance for prevailing load and condition.

  • Reduced rake: Low Rider® S model frame rake is reduced to 28-degrees from the 30-degree rake of the standard Low Rider® model, resulting in more-responsive handling.

  • Dual front disc brakes: Stronger braking performance with less lever effort than the single front disc brake on the standard Low Rider® model inspires rider confidence. Standard ABS for confident braking performance when conditions are less than ideal.

  • Blacked-out finishes: The powertrain, primary cover and tank console are finished in Wrinkle Black; the derby cover, intake, and lower rocker covers are Gloss Black. Mufflers and exhaust shields are Jet Black. Forks, triple-clamp, riser and handlebar, and rear fender supports are Matte Black.
