Budget Harley-Davidson is ready for production

The project of the American motor-car manufacturer (a budget motorcycle with a 338 cc engine) went through the next stage on the way to the conveyor. The bike is primarily focused on the markets of China and India.

The American motorcycle manufacturer has finally decided on the Baby Harley design, and now the model is in the final stages of preparation for assembly on the capacities of its Chinese partner, Qianjiang. In China, even a ceremony was held with representatives of both brands on the occasion of the approval of the design.

The model will look the same as on the sketches presented back in June, but with small, almost imperceptible changes. They hint at the origin of the bike – it will be built on the basis of the Benelli 302S, which is not surprising, since this bike is part of Qianjiang. Harley-Davidson is reportedly getting the same birdcage frame. The 338 cc in-line two-cylinder engine is the same 300 cc unit from 302S, but with a cylinder diameter increased to 69 mm and a piston stroke of 45.2 mm.

 For fans of Harley-Davidson, a small-sized budget motorcycle with a “Chinese” origin is something out of the ordinary. The model is primarily focused on the Indian and Chinese markets, which is not surprising – there is a huge demand for such equipment in these countries. The Harley-Davidson logo will help many people join the brand.
