Harley-Davidson FXDR Limited Edition coming to UK and Ireland only

The UK and Ireland-only Harley-Davidson FXDR 114 Limited Edition gets a new paint job for a slight increase in the standard price

Harley-Davidson FXDR 114 Limited Edition

A limited edition version of the Harley-Davidson FXDR 114 is being launched for sales in only the United Kingdom and Ireland.

Named the FXDR 114 Limited Edition, only 30 models of the softail custom will be produced with the entire allocation coming towards these shores.

The model has been created with the help of UK-based painters and custom design house Image Design Custom, with the changes to this run of FXDR’s solely cosmetic.

While the standard FXDR is designed to be a blank canvas for all of your customised visions, the limited edition does some of the work for you with the rather drab white paint scheme replaced by a more bling white, black and gold scheme that certainly appears more striking to our eyes.

Elsewhere, the ‘Limited Edition’ tagging will give some more of the game away, plus the unique serial number assigned to your particular mode. It also has a single-piece handlebar mounted on a ‘Fat Ape’ handlebar riser kit that replaces the stock clip-ons.

There are no such changes under the skin though with the Milwaukee-Eight 114 1868cc V-twin engine still producing 90hp at 4,500rpm and 160Nm of toque at 3,500rpm.

The Harley-Davidson FXDR 114 Limited Edition is priced at £18,345, a slight increase over the £17,995 of the standard model.

Following a tumultuous few months’ of declining sales and profits, Harley-Davidson has been steadily devising a new plan to revive its fortunes, including the new ‘Rewire’ project which will shift its focus back towards the core demographics of its cruiser business.

As a result of this, planned new models – the Pan America ADV and Bronx Streetfighter – have had their launches delayed until 2021.
