Harley-Davidson has announced its plans to launch several new 2020 models. The upcoming lineup includes a few additions that reflect the brand’s strategy in recent years, including electric bikes for eco-conscious riders and sporty all-terrain bikes. Here are some of the new models scheduled to appear before the end of the year.

Low Rider S

While not a completely new model, it’s been couple years since Harley-Davidson had this performance cruiser in its lineup. The upgraded version trades the old Dyna platform for the Softtail underpinning, complete with a 43mm inverted fork toward the front and adjustable shock.

Visually, it’s the bike you remember but with a heavier feel. The Softtail chassis weighs an extra five pounds, which will give a greater sense of power and more assertiveness from the 1,868cc Milwaukee-Eight 114 V-twin engine.

Pan America & Bronx

The highly anticipated Pan America off-road motorcycle has been in the works for the past few years. While not all details are known, Harley-Davidson fans have plenty of reasons to be excited. The Pan America is its first true adventure bike powered by the Revolution Max mill, a 1250cc V-twin engine delivering over 145HP and 90 lb-ft of torque. It will also feature design input from Michelin and Brembo.

The Bronx is essentially the Pan America on a smaller scale, featuring a 975cc engine capable of producing over 115HP and 70 lb-ft of torque. It stands out in a few regards, including a sportier, street-influenced look that’s geared toward a younger audience.

Electric Scooter

Harley-Davidson made its first venture into electric motorcycle territory with the LiveWire and now, rumor has it that two new electric models will come out late in 2020 – a proper electric scooter and a midweight proper motorcycle, inspired by flat track models.

The scooter, built more like a moped, recently had a patent filed through the European Union Intellectual Property Office, although recent reports say its features aren’t quite established. Meanwhile, the larger “Mid Power” model appears to pick up where the LiveWire left off.

CVO Road Glide

This bike is coming back as a mid-year addition, among the brand’s limited-edition Custom Vehicle Operations™ program. As a high-performance touring model, it’s expected to feature several new rider-assist features. Among the reports so far, this update will feature:

  • Knockout™ 21-inch front and 18-inch rear wheels with a more fluid, spacious seven-spoke design.
  • A reworked suspension for improved braking, handling and easier maneuvering of the larger front wheel.
  • Fang Front Spoiler design for the lower bodywork, which itself has been tested to ensure aerodynamic quality.
  • Frame-mounted shark-nose fairing for top-level aerodynamics.
  • Triple splitstream vents to lessen head buffeting.
  • Bright Daymaker LED reflector headlamps.
  • Saddlebags with One Touch latches for easy opening and closing.
  • Screamin’ Eagle® Heavy Breather intake to improve air flow to the engine.
  • Entertainment features, including the Wireless Headset Interface Module (WHIM) for Bluetooth connectivity.
