  /  Events + Hot Deals   /  ASEAN Welcomes These Two Harley-Davidson Motorcycles

Leading the pack at the 2018 Thailand International Motor Expo are two powerful Harley-Davidson motorcycles designed to make a lasting impression on anyone who craves the freedom of the open road.

  • FXDR 114™

The aggressive new FXDR 114 communicates its commitment to all-out performance through a visual design inspired at the drag strip, where the application of torque to the pavement is sophisticated in its execution – and adrenaline-pumping in its application.

  • Armed with tire-spinning 114ci Milwaukee-Eight V-twin power
  • Built around a Softail chassis, with lightweight aluminum swingarm and wheels
  • Liberal use of composite components also saves weight

The new Harley-Davidson FXDR 114 delivers hard-core drag-strip aggression with a technical edge. It’s an unapologetic power cruiser bringing a new level of all-out performance to the Harley-Davidson line-up, combining the unrelenting torque of the Milwaukee-Eight 114 engine with the liberal use of weight-saving aluminum and composite components. As a result, every aspect of performance is amplified.

The FXDR 114 is the tenth Harley-Davidson based on the Softail platform introduced in 2018 and the latest in a line of 100 high-impact motorcycles the company plans to introduce by 2027. The price of all-new FXDR 114 starts at THB 1,199,000.

  • Iron 1200

The Iron 1200 recipe starts with power Evolution 1200 V-Twin engine and delivers 34 percent more torque (70 Nm vs 94 Nm.) than the 883 Evolution engine that powers the Iron 883, the original urban brawler in the Sportster family.

The satin-black Mini Ape handlebar is an essential element of the garage-built chopper look that adds instant attitude. The gloss black speed screen framing the headlamp is a West Coast styling influence that amplifies the attitude of the tall bars. The fast-back Café Solo Seat flows to the rear fender and is shaped to help hold the rider in position when the torque of the Evolution 1200 kicks in.

A classic 3.3-gallon Sportster fuel tank features multi-colored striped graphics that wrap around the tank profile. The entire powertrain has been styled with a popular color: black upper and lower rocker boxes, black exhaust and muffler shields, and black timer, primary and derby covers. Chrome pushrod tubes and tappet covers are the only brightwork and highlight the V-Twin engine shape. The Iron 1200 is finished with all-black 9-Spoke wheels and a solid black belt guard and rear sprocket. Price starts at THB 619,000.

“We’re excited about the growing demand for our motorcycles in Thailand,” said Thanabodee Kulthol (Mark), Market Operations Manager for Harley-Davidson Thailand. “These two new bikes, one with drag style inspiration and the other one with its throwback styling are classic examples of what makes Harley-Davidson so special. The FXDR 114 is a power cruiser that delivers exceptional ride and handling characteristics, while the Iron 1200 is perfect for those who want more punch on the street and more mid-range muscle to power through traffic.”

These two new motorcycles and other great rides from Harley-Davidson are present at the 35th edition of the Thailand International Motor Expo, from November 29 to December 10, 2018, at Impact Challenger, Muang Thong Thani, Bangkok. It provides a great opportunity to see all 14 Model Year 2019 (MY19) Harley-Davidson motorcycles at one time. The price of ownership starts at THB 479,000 for Sportster models, while the Softails models start at THB 849,000.

A special interest rate of 3.29 percent and complimentary insurance is offered for buyers of MY19 Harley-Davidson Touring motorcycles, while MY18 Softail and Touring motorcycles are available at a 0 percent interest rate.

Additionally, every motorcycle purchased comes with a 2-year factory warranty for unlimited mileage, complimentary 1year HOG membership with Emergency Roadside Assistance as well as a complimentary welcome kit valued at THB 6,000. This welcome kit includes a backpack, waterproof battery tender, and travel care kit.
