Upcoming Harley Davidson 500cc Motorcycle Spy Photos Leaked, Check Photos | Mobility news

Harley Davidson has made efforts to develop entry-level models to add to its line of motorcycles. A few years ago, the automaker collaborated with a Chinese automaker Qianjiang, to develop mid-level platforms and engines. It should be noted that the aforementioned Chinese company is also the parent company of Benelli.

Recently, one of the upcoming motorcycles from the American automaker has been spied as the Harley Davidson 338 R. This upcoming model is believed to be the first model developed by this collaboration. In addition, the motorcycle following the production model was also revealed in spy shots.

According to reports, the new motorcycle is undergoing tests before the launch. The motorcycle was revealed in a video by QJ Motor and was uploaded to a Chinese website. Speculation is being made that these new spy shots are of the new 500cc motorcycle being developed by the American automaker.

Looking at the photo, it can be said that the new motorcycle has similarities with the Harley Davidson Roadster. The new bike gets a circular headlight highlighted with silver bezels, a teardrop-shaped fuel tank. In forward gear, the bike has circular mirrors and a long, one-piece saddle.

Since the bike is still being tested, it does not have very clear Harley Davidson markings. However, the fuel tank features a logo resembling the car manufacturer. Also, the rear has a number that reads “HD 500”, which could indicate that it is a Harley Davidson 500cc.

Looking closer at the bike, the effects of the Benelli manufacturers partnership can be seen on the bike. It gets a steel trellis frame, inverted forks for the suspension along with a monoshock in the rear, all bearing similarities to Benelli motorcycles.

There is no information about the power source of the motorcycle. However, speculation is that it could get a liquid-cooled 500cc parallel-twin engine similar to that of the Leoncino 500. The engine will be mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
