July 23, 2007 – H-D ’08 lineup includes three new models

In a time when Harley-Davidson is increasing its production, the Motor Company is showing it hasn’t forgotten about the custom side of the market.
H-D highlighted its 2008 lineup with the introduction of three new models, two of which strive for the flair and design of the custom segment.
“To offer this level of customization in a reliable, production motorcycle is simply unprecedented,” Bill Davidson, director of motorcycle product development for H-D, said in a press release concerning the three new models, the Dyna Fat Bob, the Rocker and the Rocker C.
That’s not to say the 2008 lineup introduction was solely focused on the new models. In fact, H-D announced changes in a number of different areas of its bikes in different model segments. Some of those include:

  • Brakes: A new Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) is available as a factory-installed option on all touring and VRSC models and is standard equipment on the 2008 Electra Glide Ultra Classic 105th Anniversary Edition, CVO Screamin’ Eagle Electra Glide Ultra Classic and CVO Screamin’ Eagle Road King.
  • Engine: All VRSC models get a power boost from a high-performance, 1250cc version of the liquid-cooled Revolution V-Twin engine tuned to make up to 125 horsepower and 85 feet pounds of torque.
  • Fuel tank: A new 6-gallon fuel tank extends the range of all touring models, which also feature new Brembo brakes and available ABS. Cruise control is now a factory-installed option on all touring models not already equipped with this feature.
  • Paint: H-D will offer 15 new color combinations, plus three custom color combinations.
    The new lineup comes on the company’s 105th anniversary, which H-D is taking advantage of to offer a number of limited edition models.
    A limited-edition 105th Anniversary package of Anniversary Copper and Vivid Black paint, a seat with a copper-colored insert plus exclusive badging will be offered on 14 different 2008 Harley-Davidson models. psb
