CONCORD, ON, Aug. 25, 2014 /CNW/ - Propelled by Project RUSHMORE, the global launch of the Street™ 750 and Street™ 500 motorcycles and the electric buzz of Project LiveWire™, Harley-Davidson Motor Company (NYSE: HOG) stays hard on the throttle with the introduction of its 2015 model lineup. Combining world-class aerodynamics, exhilarating audio performance, and dialed-in ergonomic fit, Harley-Davidson expands its diverse offering of motorcycles and gives riders more ways than ever before to lead their own pack to the open road.

"The broad 2015 Harley-Davidson model lineup demonstrates our commitment to delivering amazing products to our Customers through world-class, Customer-led product design," said Matt Levatich, President and Chief Operating Officer, Harley-Davidson Motor Company. "We are one with our riders around the world, and everything we do is about delivering what they expect and deserve from Harley-Davidson."

Customer-led innovations for 2015 include:

Road Glide® Motorcycle
After a one-year hiatus, the original alternative bagger is back with a new triple vented, frame-mounted fairing that minimizes head buffeting, Dual Reflector Daymaker™ LED headlamps, and a new handlebar with reduced reach and a new wrist angle for improved ergonomics.

Road Glide Special® Motorcycle
The fully-loaded Road Glide® Special motorcycle is Factory-equipped with premium Boom!™ Box infotainment, upgraded suspension, and Reflex™ linked brakes with an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS).

Freewheeler™ Trike
America's hot-rod swagger rolls even wider with the expansion and dominance of H-D in the three-wheel category. From its mini ape hanger handlebar to its bobtail fenders, the Freewheeler™ trike fuses custom style and easy-handling performance. The all-new rear body shape gives the Freewheeler™ trike a low, lean profile.

New Braking System for Softail® Models
A new braking system for Softail® models delivers improved modulation and responsiveness and decreases hand lever effort by 40 per cent. ABS is now standard on all Softail® models and optional on the Slim™ model. New front brake components include a rigid four-piston fixed front brake caliper with 34 and 32 mm pistons coated to minimize initial displacement, brake pads with high-output friction material, a new master cylinder with a higher mechanical ratio, and a new 300 mm front brake rotor. The caliper and master cylinder have been restyled to enhance the looks of each model.

Electra Glide® Ultra Classic® Low/Ultra Limited Low Motorcycles
Harley-Davidson takes fit further with a package of ergonomic enhancements that offer the lowest seat height and highest rider confidence available in a premium touring bike, combined with a full complement of Project RUSHMORE features and classic Harley-Davidson® style.

CVO™ Street Glide® Motorcycle
Boasting a new Boom!™ Audio system backed by 600 watts of power streaming through four bi-amped front and rear three-way speakers, this limited-production bagger is a rolling concert venue that delivers shocking volume and outstanding sonic quality. Top it off with an intricate paint scheme and the added exclusivity of four colour options.

CVO Road Glide® UltraMotorcycle
Drenched in chrome and custom paint, this super-premium Touring motorcycle offers world-class aerodynamics, luxury touring essentials, and the unrelenting performance of a Screamin' Eagle® Twin-Cooled™ Twin Cam 110™ engine.

Across its 2015 model lineup, Harley-Davidson offers fresh style with eight new paint colours, including new Custom colours Black Magic and Radioactive Green and new Hard Candy Custom™ metal flake colours Cancun Blue Flake and Quicksilver Flake.

When it comes to customization, the Harley® philosophy is the more the better – and it is pushing the limits even farther. This year, Harley-Davidson is adding hundreds of new Genuine Motor Parts & Accessories and making its digital Bike Builder tool even more massive. There are also new Genuine MotorClothes® jackets, boots, helmets, shirts, and more to add to the shopping cart.
