1. Fatboy

This cruiser bike is powered by a 1584cc, air cooled, twin cam 96B engine which produces 126Nm of torque at 3000 RPM.

Remember Harley never talks about horsepower of their bikes.

Mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox, the Fatboy features a humongous 200/55/R17 rear tyre. Sanjay Dutt owns one and if you too want it, you can get one at a price of Rs 22 lakh.

2. Softail

Designed in the early 1970s, the Softail bikes get their name from their suspension, which is soft and designed to look like the hardtail bikes of the past, while still offering the comfort of rear suspension.

What this ensures is that you don't go over a pothole, but glide over it. The Softail Classic is available in India for Rs 23.5 lakh.

It is powered by the same engine which does duty in the Fatboy but weighs an insane 345 kgs.

3. Sporster

These bikes are made for street use and have XL in their designation. One of the popular models from this series is the XL 1200 Nightster.

It is powered by a 883cc, air-cooled evolution engine which produces 107Nm of torque at 4000 RPM.

What is more interesting though is the pricing, which at Rs 12.5 lakh is bang in the territory of liter class sports bikes.

4. V-Rod

The Harley-Davidson VRSC (V-Twin Racing Street Custom) are cruiser bikes, which were introduced in 2001.

The V-Rod was launched to compete with Japanese muscle bikes like the Yamaha MT01 and the Suzuki Intruder. The bike features the Revolution engine which the company has jointly made with (you couldn't guess it) Porsche.

This is the first bike from the Harley stable to feature liquid cooling and overhead cams. The styling of the V-Rod is very different from other Harley-Davidson bikes.

The V-Rod costs Rs 12.5 lakh and has 115Nm of torque delivered at high 7000 RPM.
