Harley-Davidson Sportster S to launch at India Bike Week 2021
The Ducati Diavel 1260, which was in a niche segment of its own, will soon see competition from the Harley-Davidson Sportster S, which will launch in India in the coming weeks.
Harley-Davidson Sportster S will launch in India during the first week of December 2021. Harley Davidson India will make an official pricing announcement during India Bike Week 2021, which is scheduled for December 4-5, 2021.
The Sportster S made its world debut earlier this year and has been on sale in international markets ever since. In the United States, the Sportster S sells for $ 14,999 (around Rs 11.15 lakh).
Due to the tax structure of our country, the Harley Davidson Sportster S is likely to have a higher price, between Rs 13 lakh and Rs 15 lakh (ex-showroom).
The Sportster S receives the same 60-degree 1,252cc V-twin engine that powers the Pan-America 1250 ADV. In the Sportster S, however, it was tuned to develop 119.3 hp and 127.4 Nm. The engine is mated to a six-speed transmission. The bike also features six-axis IMU-based ABS and traction control, as well as five riding modes.
Harley-Davidson India has already started accepting pre-bookings for the next Sportster S, and deliveries are expected to start by January 2022. The Harley-Davidson Sportster S will compete directly with the Ducati Diavel 1260, which starts at Rs 18, 49 lakh (former exhibition hall).
