New Harley Davidson with 1,250cc engine coming on July 13
Harley-Davidson has teased the launch of a new motorcycle in the ‘sport segment’, powered by its 1,250cc Revolution Max motor that debuted in the Pan America adventure bike.
- Officially unveilingon July 13, expected in dealershipsby end-2021
- Could be a revival of the Bronx streetfighter project with an updated engine
- Might alternatively be a production version of the 1250 Custom prototype
Harley-Davidson’s bold new direction seems to be rather ambiguous because it has simultaneously gone down the electric route with the LiveWire and entered the ADV segment with the Pan America. Now, it intends to enter the ‘sport segment’ with an all-new bike powered by the same 1,250cc Revolution Max engine as the Pan America.
Harley Davidson Bronx incoming?
Of course, Harley-Davidson’s idea of the sport segment is not going to be a fully-faired supersport machine. So, what can we expect instead? Well, at the same time as the Pan America announcement, The Motor Company also revealed the Bronx – a naked streetfighter powered by a downsized 975cc motor. The Bronx was subsequently put on hold while the Pan America made its way to production.
Harley Davidson 1250 Custom production version
Could Harley Davidsonbe taking the Bronx off the backburner and finally be putting it into production with a larger engine? It is a possibility, but the more likely scenario is that the Milwaukee manufacturer is nudging the 1250 Custom prototype towards production. The ‘Future Vehicles’ section of Harley’s website features a ‘high performance custom model’ planned for 2021, listed with a picture of the 1250 Custom prototype. It’s got the right engine and its tank shape seems to match the oneseen in the teaser image.
