harley-davidson launches ‘icons collection’ motorcycles

The meaning behind the ‘Revival’ tag glimpsed in Harley-Davidson’s 2021 model launch earlier this year has been revealed. The name has been attached to a new Electra Glide tourer, which launched on 27 April as the first in what will be an ongoing series of limited-edition motorcycles that tap into the long history of the famous American brand. Dubbed ‘Icons Collection,’ this new initiative will see Harley-Davidson produce one or two special models each year, with a short, single production run for each. Further ensuring exclusivity, once production of each Icons Collection motorcycle is completed, it will not be resumed or repeated. “With ‘The Hardwire,’ we made a commitment to introduce a series of motorcycles that align with our strategy to increase desirability and to drive the legacy of Harley-Davidson,” said Jochen…

bmw update c 400 x and c 400 gt scooters

In response to Euro5 emissions regulations, BMW Motorrad have updated their small capacity scooter pair – the C 400 X and C 400 GT – which are due to reach Australia in May.

honda previews pioneer 520

Honda’s local side-by-side (SxS) lineup is expanding with the imminent arrival of the Pioneer 520. Due for Australian release in May, the 520 is built on the same platform as the Pioneer 500 and retains that model’s two-seat capacity, but adds a larger capacity single-cylinder engine, modified suspension and a practical tilt/dump cargo bed that can hold over 200kg. ATV OUT, SXS IN The release of the Pioneer 520 is part of a growing Honda SxS range, which will fill the gap when all Honda utility ATVs are withdrawn from Australian dealerships later this year. Honda is joining Yamaha and Polaris in withdrawing all their utility ATVs from the Australian market, rather than fit the contentious Operator Protection Device (OPD) that will become mandatory for all new utility ATVs sold here from 11 October,…
