There is also talk of introducing a mandatory requirement for traction control in Australia.
While traction control is available on many motorcycles, Harley has so far resisted.
But it might not far off the pace after the introduction of the technology on their trikes.
Harley-Davidson product planning manager Charlie Wartgow says the 2019 Tri Glide and Freewheeler tricks will not only come with traction control but also ABS linked brakes and Drag-Torque Slip Control System which prevents the rear wheels from locking under downshifts.
Charlie says the company is putting a lot of emphasis on their trikes for conquest sales.
He says one in three 3 Tri Glide owners is new to the sport or new to the brand.
Charlie also points out that 95% will buy another Harley-Davidson and 62% will buy another trike.
“They also put on the most miles of any Harley customers — slightly more than CVO — with an average of 6700 miles a year,” he says.
The stripped-down Freewheeler has about 28% female owners, compared with 10% for the Tri Glide.
“This is a significant product in bringing more women into the sport and Harley,” he says.
