Harley-Davidson releases 2017 range prices

2017 Harley-Davidson Road King Touring Milwaukee Eight prices prices

There are a few significant discounts as well as understandable price rises across the Harley-Davidson range with the introduction of new engines and extra features.

Harley-Davidson Australia spokesman David Turney says their pricing strategy has not been influenced by short-term currency fluctuations but “reflects new features” and a longer-term currency strategy.

Meanwhile, the 2017 global line-up has dropped the Sportster Seventy-Two and SuperLow Touring and the Dyna Street Bob Special and Switchback, so they are also missing from the Australian range.

The Street 500 has increased $750 with the addition of ABS and a remote smart key fob with immobiliser.

David says ABS will be welcomed by novice riders and commuters will appreciate the extra security of the smart key.

Among the Sportsters, there are $500 price increases in the 883 models while the Forty-Eight is down $255.

David says the pricing is “more logical” and “suits the market”.

The Dyna range pricing remains stable despite the Low Rider now coming with a smart key fob and immobiliser standard.

All Softails now get the high output 103 engine from the 2016 Touring range, however most retain the same price, including the top-selling Breakout, despite it now coming standard wth a smart key fob.

“It’s not a case of supply versus demand, the Breakout just sits nicely where it is in the price range,” David says. “We don’t change prices on winners.”

Meanwhile, the Softain Slim is down $1000, the Deluxe drops $255 and the Heritage Classic is down a whopping $2000.

David says the price drops bring them into line with the other Softails.

Interestingly, the Softail Slim S and Fat Boy S retain the 110 Screamin’ Eagle engines, but prices have risen $255.

The biggest changes to the fleet are in the Touring and CVO range with the 110- and 114-cube Milwaukee Eight engine and upgraded suspension. Price rises are between $1500 and $2250.

“We think once people ride the 2017 models against the older models, they’ll see differences are well worth the small uptick,” David says.

The CVO Breakout stays the same, but the Street Glide is up $1000 and the Ultra is up $1500.
