Talking about the design of the Harley Davidson X440 bike, it follows the company’s popular XR1200 model. The biggest thing is that the retro style is evident everywhere in the design of the bike. Although it has round headlamps, teardrop shaped fuel tank at the front to keep the past, LED light setup, LCD instrument console has been given for modernity. It comes with special design and attractive alloy wheels.

The Harley Davidson X440 bike will run on a new 398 cc air-oil cooled single cylinder engine. Mated to a six-speed gearbox, this engine can produce a maximum power of 27 bhp and 38 Nm of torque. Handling the suspension duties are inverted forks at the front and twin shock absorbers at the rear. There are also disc brakes with ABS on both the front and rear wheels. 320mm discs are fitted at the front. Built on a trellis frame, the bike uses USD forks with cartridge dumping system at the front and pre-load adjustable suspension at the rear.

With the X440, Harley-Davidson opened a new horizon in emerging markets like India as well as internationally. The X440 comes with a completely different look from the Harley Davidson X350 and X500 models launched in neighboring China last year. Hero Motocorp is determined to spread this bike all over India. Currently there are 15 dealerships of Harley Davidson in this country but it is known that the number will increase a lot within the current year.

Although in countries like India where Royal Enfield has been a monopoly for years, it is certain that the Harley Davidson X440 will gain enough momentum to increase its popularity. But it can be said that the price of Hero-Harle bike is quite attractive. Who would want to miss out on Harley Davidson bikes at such a low price!
