Harley Davidson FXS Blackline Softail in India

Harley Davidson bikes are the newest attraction to Indian bike enthusiasts and the line-up is too magnetizing. With bikes ranging from Rs.5 to Rs.35 Lakh the company has a number of bikes to offer to the Indian customers, priced in accordance with the budgets of different buyers. The pricing of Harley Davidson FXS Blackline Softail in India is yet to be declared.

The next happening thing for the buyers is the Harley Davidson FXS Blackline Softail which is the recent addition to the company’s line-up. The bike is very unusual in every sense with a number of unique things including an asymmetrical fuel tank design.

“Lean as wire, hard as iron and dark as a tar road at midnight” This is the tagline being used by Harley to define this new offering and to what extent it justifies the same, can be sensed by looking at its pictures.
