The mysterious Harley-Davidson announcement that was slated for yesterday has resulted in not one or two, but eight new bikes (well, seven bikes and a trike) being added to The Motor Company’s 2022 line-up. Well, we say new, but most of these are evolutions or new variants of existing models. These are the Low Rider S, Low Rider ST, Street Glide ST, Road Glide ST, CVO Street Glide, CVO Road Glide, CVO Road Glide Limited, and CVO Tri Glide.
The Low Rider S and ST, both get a powerplant upgrade to the massive Milwaukee Eight 117 engine, displacing 1,920cc and producing 170Nm. Indeed, all the motorcycles on this list are powered by the mighty 117. The ST is a bagger, coming with hard saddlebags, a larger front fairing, higher rear suspension and a high handlebar set-up, while the S features a much smaller headlight cowl and a ride height that better justifies its nametag.
Suspension on both Low Rider models consists of a 43mm USD fork and a rear monoshock that offers 13mm more stroke and 25mm more rear wheel travel than the one found on the standard Softail chassis, as well as preload adjustability.
The 2022 Street Glide ST and Road Glide ST, both come with the option of Harley’s Reflex linked braking system, cornering ABS and cornering traction control. Standard equipment includes Boom! Box GTS infotainment systems with full-colour touchscreens and Daymaker LED headlights.
Finally, the 2022 CVO quartet consists of the CVO Street Glide, CVO Road Glide, CVO Road Glide Limited, and CVO Tri Glide (the trike). All these come standard with exclusive hand-crafted paint, premium audio systems, and Harley’s Cornering Rider Safety Enhancements system (the electronic aids that are optional on the two Glide models above).
In the USA, pricing starts at $18,349 (Rs 13.8 lakh) for the 2022 Low Rider S, $21,749 (Rs 16.35 lakh) for the 2022 Low Rider ST, $29,999 (Rs 22.55 lakh) for the 2022 Road Glide ST and 2022 Street Glide ST, $41,899 (Rs 31.5 lakh) for the 2022 CVO Street Glide and 2022 CVO Road Glide, and $44,899 (Rs 33.8 lakh) for the 2022 CVO Road Glide Limited.
