Plus New 103” engine for Touring and ABS for Softail® models

SYDNEY; Harley-Davidson introduces the new SuperLow, Forty-Eight, and three CVO models with its expansive line of 2011-model-year motorcycles. With 25 models including urban brawlers, long-haul touring machines, contemporary customs drenched in chrome, dark retro-style bobbers, exhilarating sport roadsters, and inviting standards, Harley- Davidson offers a motorcycle to match the desires of almost any street rider.

Available from September 1st across Australia and New Zealand, each rolls to the sound track of the American road, a syncopated V-Twin cadence that is the pulse of every Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Highlights of the 2011 line include:

The new SuperLow leads the way combining revised front end geometry, new wheels and tyres, and reshaped seat and handlebars to achieve well- balanced handling and comfort that will inspire confidence in new riders and exhilarate those with experience. Pricing also lives up to the model’s name with a recommended retail of NZ$12,250.

The new Forty-Eight motorcycle is a factory custom in the legendary tradition of the hot rod Sportster line with the raw, elemental appeal of the Dark CustomTM bikes. Like the SuperLow the new Forty-Eight provides great value at NZ$15,495.

All Touring models gain power with a new standard 103” engine with only a minor increase in price. Prices start from NZ$29,250.

All Softail models now feature ABS as standard, bringing the total number of H-D models with this key feature to 15. New hand controls add features, convenience, and cleaner styling. Prices start from NZ$26,750.

The 2011 VRSC feature Michelin® Scorcher tyres, new colours, and graphics round out changes to the Night Rod® Special and the V-Rod MuscleTM. Prices start from NZ$26,750.

The four 2011 Dyna® models project pure attitude. Built with the rawest styling of all the Big Twin motorcycles, Dyna models are a customiser’s dream. Each is offered in new colours. Prices start from NZ$23,250.

Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations (CVOTM) returns to Australia and New Zealand this year and offers three premium, limited-production motorcycles for 2011.
