In July 2018, Harley Davidson had stated that a sub-500cc model could be introduced for the Indian market along with a whole electric bike range, bobber-styled cruiser, adventure tourer and streetfighter. This is part of the “More roads to Harley Davidson” blueprint till 2022. The company plans to launch 100 new bikes by the year 2027. These three models along with the “patented” (*cough cough) saree guards could arrive by 2020.
