Harley-Davidson Likely To Launch Three New Bikes

The iconic American marque recently trademarked three names which lead us to believe that we could see three new motorcycles soon

Harley-Davidson Likely To Launch Three New Bikes

According to reports, American bike manufacturer Harley-Davidson has filed a trademark for three new model names. Between December 7 and 21 last year, the company trademarked the names - the Bronx, 48X and Pan America - for exclusive use on its motorcycles. 

In the past two years, both the Touring and the Softail range have received massive updates. However, the same cannot be said about the Sportster range, which is starting to show its age. Hence, we think, the launch of three new models to refresh the range is a high possibility.

The 48X, we believe, could be an upgraded version of the already existing Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight. As the motorcycle is already facing stiff competition from the new Indian Scout Bobber and the Triumph Bobber Black, this move only seems obvious. 

As seen on the recent Milwaukee-Eight engine, the engines powering new bikes could switch to four-valve heads as well. Also, since Euro 5 emission norms are around the corner (from January 2020), Harley will have to update the engine in the Forty-Eight soon.

We expect the Bronx to be an urban-focused bike that could possibly replace the Harley-Davidson Iron 883. The Pan America, on the other hand, is likely to be a Sportster-based tourer that could replace the Harley-Davidson 1200 Custom.

As the trademark office in the US has a 36-month 'use it or lose it' policy, we expect the three new Harley-Davidsons to debut sometime next year. Stay tuned for more updates.
