Harley-Davidson and Hero MotoCorp Unveil the Iconic Harley-Davidson X440 Motorcycle: A Fusion of Power and Engineering Brilliance

Harley-Davidson and Hero MotoCorp introduced their inaugural joint project, the Harley-Davidson X440 motorcycle, on July 3rd. This impressive vehicle combines American strength with Indian engineering expertise. The launch of the Harley-Davidson X440 is a groundbreaking moment, as it becomes the first high-end motorcycle to be released under the licensing agreement between these two brands. Production will take place at the Garden Factory in Neemrana, Rajasthan.

After its official unveiling, numerous Harley enthusiasts took to Twitter to express their reactions. One user commented, “Initially, I thought Hero-Davidson lost to Bajaj-Triumph, but it seems that these new ventures will expand the market for mid-range bikes in India instead of competing directly.”

Another user shared, “Hero MotoCorp entered India’s growing market for premium lifestyle motorcycles by introducing the Harley Davidson X440, a completely indigenous 440cc motorcycle created in collaboration with the esteemed Milwaukee-based motorcycle manufacturer.”

What Sets the Harley-Davidson X440 Apart from Other Motorcycles?

At the heart of the X440 lies a formidable 440cc oil-cooled, long-stroke BSVI (OBD II) and E20 compliant engine, a first for Hero MotoCorp. This powerhouse generates an exhilarating 27bhp of power and an impressive 38Nm of torque. The engine comes with an assist and slipper clutch, providing accurate control, and is combined with a highly responsive 6-speed gearbox.
