Could this be new 500cc Harley?

Speculation is rife that this mini cruiser spotted in India could be the just-confirmed new 500 model

A BADGE-LESS mini cruiser with Harley-Davidson styling cues spotted in India… could this be the new 500cc model the Milwaukee firm has said is in final stages of development, potentially for the Indian market?

The forks look like those of a Harley-Davidson Superlow XL883L, currently the firm’s cheapest offering in India. The rear-shocks, tail unit and tank are also very Harley-esque, while the cylinders look too big for a 250. The yellow radiator fan is admittedly plain confusing, but could be a ploy to help disquise the machine.

The images emerged on Indian Automotive forum, posted by a member who spotted the machines on his way to work.

Visordown reported yesterday how Harley-Davdison President Matt Levatich had said a new 500cc model was in late stages of development, and hinted it could be produced in India.

Levatich said: “I’ve ridden it. It looks great, sounds great, it’s a Harley, and it’s priced right.”
