So, the veils are off the goodies Harley-Davidson has in the works for 2021. The bike maker took advantage of its first digital event and unveiled the bulk of the models hitting the assembly lines for the new year, but also the accessories devised for them.
We already had a glance at the new Street Bob with the Milwaukee-Eight 114 engine and the revamped line of CVO models, and now it’s time to glance a bit at the accessories created by the bike maker and its partners.
First off, the Rockford Fosgate audio system. Offered as standard on the CVO Street Glide and CVO Road Glide, it also comes as an extra for the 2014-later Touring motorcycles equipped with a Boom! Box infotainment unit.
There are two versions offered, Stage I and Stage II, and each has been designed to be installed in the fairing, fairing lowers, Tour-Pak luggage, or saddlebag lids. Both comprise left and right speakers and custom grilles, and can be backed by an amplifier coming from the same company.
Secondly, here come the cooled and heated seats. They are offered for Touring and Trike models, and have proved during testing they can bring the temperature down by 25 degrees, from 85 degrees Fahrenheit (29 degrees Celsius) ambient temperature, in about 30 minutes.
Then, there’s a new Screamin’ Eagle high-flow exhaust for Softail models. The bolt-on hardware can be used with Screamin’ Eagle Milwaukee-Eight 128/131 Stage IV kits or the Screamin’ Eagle 131 crate engine, and has been designed to be 20 percent lighter than the stock system. Available in satin black or stainless finishes, it can legally be used in 49 states, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
As for engine upgrades, the bike maker will continue to offer Stage III enhancements, namely 107ci to 119ci (1,753 to 1,950 cc) and 114ci to 122ci (1,868 to 2,000 cc).
Pricing and release date for these items were not announced.
