Three new 2016 Harley-Davidson models launched

Naza Prestige Bikes Sdn Bhd introduces three new 2016 Harley-Davidson models.


Authorised Malaysian Harley-Davidson motorcycles importer Naza Prestige Bikes Sdn Bhd has added three new 2016 Harley-Davidson models into its line up for the Malaysian market.

Launched earlier this afternoon at the flagship Harley-Davidson Kuala Lumpur (H-DKL) showroom were the 2016 Harley-Davidson Roadster, Softail Slim S and CVO Pro Street Breakout.


Also present here as part of the launch gambit was local celebrity biker Jehan Miskin and HOG Malaysia Chapter president Choo Kai Moon.

Here’s a breakdown of all three new 2016 H-D models that were launched earlier this afternoon.

2016 Harley-Davidson Roadster
Firstly comes the latest addition into the famed bar-and-shield marque’s Sportster and Dark Custom line up – the 2016 Harley-Davidson Roadster.


Like its siblings, the Roadster features a stripped down and minimalist aesthetic approach inspired by classic racers of yesteryear.


It also shares the same signature H-D air-cooled 1,200cc Evolution V-twin powertrain primed with electronic fuel injection derived from the Sportster Forty-Eight. Paired with the mill is yet another typical H-D trait – a five-speed transmission with a belt final drive setup.


Eagle-eyed readers would’ve already noted the chopped rear fender and signature Sportster fuel tank designs matching with the Roadster’s aggressive riding ergonomics perfectly. Adding to that are the massive 19-inch front and 18-inch cast aluminium wheels, new suspension setups front and aft, as well as the dual-disc front brakes.


Available in five paint scheme options, the 2016 H-D Roadster is now open for viewing and purchase through H-DKL with a nett selling price of RM110,000.

2016 Harley-Davidson Softail Slim S
Secondly comes the 2016-spec Harley-Davidson Softail Slim S.


Unlike the standard Softail cruiser, this uprated S version sees H-D merging powerful performance with its signature classic cruiser design into one package.


Encased in the chassis here is one of H-D’s largest and most powerful production engines – the 1,800cc air-cooled Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 110. This V-twin mill offers 145Nm of peak torque that’s generated at 4,000rpm, propelling this 398kg (claimed, dry) cruiser up to speeds effortlessly.


Adding a military-esque appeal here is the model’s eye-catching Olive Gold Denim paint scheme option to go along with the contrasting black-finished exterior trims. Highlights of the latter include the massive triple-clamp and riser assembly, exhaust, fork covers, mirror housings plus the headlamp surround.


Also available in a Vivid Black paint option, H-DKL will begin retailing the new 2016 H-D Softail Slim S with a nett selling price figure of RM160,000.

2016 H-D CVO Pro Street Breakout
Lastly comes the new-for-2016 H-D CVO Pro Street Breakout.


This model also features an aggressive styling with a powerful engine that match. The model adopts the 1,800cc Screamin’ Eagle V-twin here and offers a slightly higher torque output of 151Nm at 3,500rpm instead.


Signature traits of the CVO Pro Street Blackout include its massive Agressor wheel mounts that hold a 240mm-wide rear tyre, as well the engine’s heavy breather intake unit. Granting added control over this beastly dragster are a pair of inverted front forks plus a dual-disc front brake setup as well.


Completing the dragster outlooks and performance is the CVO Pro Street Breakout’s racy riding ergonomics. Highlights here include the aggressive handlebar and foot control positions, as well as the race-inspired seat that also offers high levels of comforts.


Available in two striking dual-tone paint scheme options, the 2016 H-D CVO Pro Street Breakout stands as the most expensive model H-DKL launched during today’s soiree as it carries a nett selling price of RM210,000.
