Essentially, all customers have to pay the price difference between the Street 750/Street Rod and their Harley Softail of choice.
As part of the exchange offer, the brand will also provide a 75 per cent refund on both models which date back to 2016. In addition to this, Harley-Davidson India will also roll out special schemes on its Softail models purchased via the exchange. A win-win situation for all prospective Softail buyers.

The most affordable one being the Street Bob (Rs 12.59 lakh), while the most expensive one is the Heritage Classic (Rs 19.71 lakh) (all prices, ex-showroom India). The entire Softail range is powered by Harley’s Milwaukee-Eight 107 (1,745cc) engine which puts out a peak torque output of 144Nm at revs as low as 3,000 rpm.
As for future plans, Harley recently announced its ‘More Roads to Harley Davidson’ growth strategy through 2022. According to this, the bikemaker will target developing countries which includes India and team up with an Asian manufacturer to roll out a new breed of products. The lineup will consist of 250-500cc motorcycles ranging from an adventure tourer, street naked to an electric bike, with additional models following through till 2022. It’s safe to say that Harley-Davidson has big plans for the future and the trade-in offer is just the beginning.
