Harley-Davidson reveal Bronx V-twin naked
First seen in 2018 as the 'Streetfighter 975' concept, This is the Harley-Davidson Bronx - a new naked that uses a 975cc version of their new Revolution Max motor, It's a bike with plenty of promise.
The Milwaukee firm are making quite a fuss about it having attitude and performance, and with over 115bhp and 70ftlb of torque, the Bronx promises the power of a Yamaha MT-09 but with 10% more torque.
Harley have used the V-twin as a stressed member, with the frame attaching the steering head to the engine, and the swingarm pivots in the crankcases.
Suspension is also fully-adjustable, with the four-piston monoblock brakes also supplied exclusively by Brembo. Also unique are the tyres, with Harley collaborating with Michelin to create bespoke rubber for each of their new models. For added control, it’s also got all the electronics you would expect to find on a modern machine.
As with the Pan America adventure-tourer, also revealed earlier today, the Bronx will go on sale towards the end of 2020. There's no word on pricing, although £10,000 would great, however around £15,000 is much more likely.
