The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - LAUNCH -

HAR­LEY- DAVID­SON Mo­tor Cy­cles of Kuala Lumpur has un­veiled two ad­di­tions for 2016 in its sta­ble and they are the Iron 883 and Forty- Eight mo­tor­cy­cles.

The Iron 883 is priced at RM89,000 with four colour op­tions of Char­coal Satin, Black Denim, Olive Gold with ea­gle- and- shield tank logo and Hard Candy Cus­tom Gold Flake with flame de­tail paired with black fend­ers.

The RM106,000 Forty- Eight gets four colour op­tions of Vivid Black, Bil­let Sil­ver, Ve­loc­ity Red Sun­glo and Olive Gold as well as Hard Candy Cus­tom op­tions such as Hard Candy Can­cun Blue Flake and Hard Candy Gold Flake.

Prices for both mo­tor­cy­cles are net, which in­cludes GST and comes with a five- year war­ranty, two and half- year free ser­vice and one- year free Har­ley- David­son Own­ers Group ( HOG) as­sist.

The Iron 883 uses an 883cc air­cooled V- twin en­gine with 71Nm of torque at 3,750rpm while mated to a five- speed trans­mis­sion. No out­put fig­ures were stated.

It has a 12.5- litre fuel tank, a dry weight of 247kg and a seat height of 775mm while rolling on nine- spoke cast alu­minium 19- inch ( front) and 16- inch ( rear) wheels with 100/ 90 and 150/ 80 tyres re­spec­tively.

Other de­sign cues in­clude clipped fend­ers, blacked- out pow­er­train and ex­haust, drag- style han­dle­bars, ex­haust shields and solo tuck- an­droll seat cover.

The new car­tridge- style forks and new ad­justable emul­sion rear shock ab­sorbers helps to en­hance ride and han­dling.

The more costly Forty- Eight uses a more po­tent 1,202cc air- cooled V- twin to dish out 96Nm of torque at 3,500rpm to get its 247kg of dry heft mov­ing, while sip­ping from a smaller 7.9- litre fuel tank.

At 2,210mm in length, it’s 40mm- shorter than the 883 and rolls 16- inch cast- alu­minium nine split­spoke wheels with solid black fin­ish and ma­chined high­lights and 130- 90 ( front) and 150/ 80 ( rear) tyres.

Other good­ies in­clude the 49mm forks, alu­minium fork brace and chopped fend­ers while the hor­i­zon­tal stripes on the seat’s stitching, slot­ted ex­haust shields, rear sprocket and belt guard harks back to the 1970s.
