In response to the growing demand for exotic cruisers here in the country, six local dealerships of Harley-Davidson will hold a simultaneous launching of the brand’s 2020 Touring range on November 23, 2019.
Under the ‘Orange and Black Tag’ event, Harley-Davidson’s dealerships in Greenhills and Bonifacio Global City, Cavite, Pampanga, Cebu, and Davao will unveil six different models, which we’ll preview here. Of note, now that Southeast Asia is the flashpoint of economic growth, it seems the American motorcycle manufacturer is relentlessly pushing its products in the Philippine market by coming up with competitive pricing vis-à-vis its competitors.
Do you find Harley-Davidson’s Touring models droolworthy? Let us know which one is your favorite:
1) Harley-Davidson Electra Glide (P1,500,00)
Primarily designed for purists, the Electra Glide is a bare-essentials cruiser that provides a canvas for unlimited customization work. This handsome low rider is powered by the 1,746cc Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine and is equipped with cruise control for more relaxed long-haul trips.
2) Harley-Davidson Road King (P1,500,000)
The 2020 Road King promises a nostalgic experience with its timeless, stripped-down styling—complete with a bigger windscreen—that we all remember from the ’60s. It’s also powered by the mighty yet smooth-running Milwaukee-Eight 107 mill, and gets a set of Reflex Linked brakes with standard ABS.
3) Harley-Davidson Road King Special (P1,600,000)
Fit for those who prefer a bad-boy image and more aggressive riding, the Road King Special has blacked-out features and packs the 1,868cc Milwaukee-Eight 114 engine, making it a potent highway tourer. It’s available in six color options: Vivid Black, Barracuda Silver, River Rock Gray Denim, Billiard Burgundy, and Zephyr Blue/Black Sunglo.
4) Harley-Davidson Street Glide Special (P1,700,000)
The Street Glide Special elevates cruisers onto a higher plane with its new collection of rider aids. Among its high-tech features are advanced chassis control, electronic brake control, and powertrain technology that provides assistance on both long straights and challenging twities. It also boasts the Boom! Box GTS infotainment system, which also delivers impressive web connectivity.
5) Harley-Davidson Road Glide Special (P1,700,000)
The Road Glide Special might look like a Road King Special, but it’s armed with premium features. Apart from being powered by the Milwaukee-Eight 114 mill, it also gets the Boom! Box GTS infotainment system and the brand’s Reflex Defensive Rider System, making it extremely fun to take on long-distance rides. Reflex Linked brakes with ABS are a standard feature, too.
6) Harley-Davidson Ultra Limited (P2,000,000)
As always, we save the best for last. The 2020 Ultra Limited, likewise propelled by a Milwaukee-Eight 114, could be the nemesis of the Honda Gold Wing in the grand-touring bike market here. With its classic batwing fairings and split-stream air vents, it’s poised to conquer the highways in terms of looks, speed, and comfort. It’s also equipped with all the features we’ve mentioned from the five other HD tourers, plus heated handgrips. Just by staring at it, you’re already in for the ride of your life.
