Harley-Davidson Malaysia Debuts Updated Lineup For 2021

A raft of updated Harley-Davidson motorcycles make its way to Malaysia this year. 

Harley-Davidson Malaysia has recently announced that it has recently launched its Model Year 2021 lineup locally. First unveiled globally as part of the H-D 21 event back in January of this year, the Milwaukee-based motorcycle manufacturer touts that its updated range of bikes promises more performance, style, technology, and freedom for the soul; while simultaneously offering enhanced technology at attractive prices. 

Leading the updated lineup of motorcycles this time around are the new Street Bob 114 and the restyled Fat Boy 114 Cruisers. Starting first with the Street Bob 114, it serves as a replacement for the prior Street Bob 107 model and features a more powerful Milwaukee-Eight 114 V-Twin. 

Touted to be Harley-Davidson as the most powerful engine to be fitted in a Softail chassis, this new power plant that is strapped onto its most light-weight Softail model thereby ensures riders a ‘quick-and-nimble ride with power to spare’. Prices for the Street Bob 114 begins from RM 101,900 in Malaysia. 

As for the restyled Fat Boy 114, the recent modifications made to this particular Harley Davidson has mainly been in the aim of enhancing its steamroller stance. A feat which is achieved by the addition of brilliant chrome finished accents replacing satin chrome pieces, and the return of the 18-inch solid aluminium Lakester wheels. 

The 2021 refresh for this blinged-out cruiser also nets the same more powerful 114 cubic-inch Milwaukee-Eight V-Twin as seen on the Street Bob 114. The Fat Boy 114 is priced from RM 122,900 locally. 

Moving onto the slightly more affordable end of the Harley-Davidson lineup, the Softail Standard makes its debut into the Malaysian market with a (relatively) affordable starting price of RM 89,900. For those looking for a slightly more premium riding Softail however, the Low Rider S with its ‘premium suspension components tuned for aggressive riding’ is also now available over here from RM 106,900. 

Continuing further up the price spectrum, the 2021 Harley-Davidson Road King Special, Road Glide Special and Street Glide Special models has been launched locally too. Recently updated with a new Touring frame for better long-distance cruising and other associated exterior enhancements, this trio of ‘hot rod baggers with fresh swagger’ retails over here from RM 129,900. 

Rounding up the new local arrivals for the time being are the updated variants of Harley-Davidson’s Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) super-premium models. Consisting of the CVO Street Glide, CVO Road Glide and CVO Ultra Limited, these flagship bikes for the American motorcycle manufacturer, that incidentally start from RM 292,900, gains a new bespoke Rockford Fosgate Stage II audio system with tri-axial speakers for 2021, in addition to some new paint options too. 

All these updated models for the 2021 Harley-Davidson lineup are available for viewings now, with the four authorised dealerships nationwide set to host a 2021 MY Open House this weekend (27 – 28 March 2021).
