Harley-Davidson unveils 2014 models

Harley Davidson has rocked its competition with a clear statement of intent with the announcement of a line-up of new motorbikes landing in 2014 at a dealer meeting in Denver.

The unveiling is said to be the biggest new model launch in Harley Davidson's 110-year history.

The new range spawned from Harley's broad product-development program dubbed 'Project
Rushmore' which aims to improve the riding experience in its touring family models based on customer comments and feedback

Director of Marketing for Harley-Davidson Australia and New Zealand, Adam Wright said: "Model year 14 represents an extremely exciting period of change for Harley-Davidson."

"Our aim was to listen to what our customers wanted and deliver on every aspect, from style and infotainment to control and feel.

"These changes also carry through to the rest of the 2014 range which includes everything from the styling overhaul of the new Fat Bob to the developments seen in both the Sportster and CVO families," he added.

The changes in next year's models comes as welcome news and is arguably long overdue as the US company has been guilty of making subtle changes to its existing models for the past few years.

These new changes include a cosmetic makeover, boosted power - touring bikes now use the high-output Twin Cam 103 two-cylinder engine - brighter headlights and anti-lock brakes.

One of the more notable upgrades is the innovative 'Reflex' system which improves safety by the linking of the front and rear brakes of the bike, making them work together.

The exciting and nifty infotainment package features voice recognition and touch screen options for navigation, communication and music.
