The Harley-Davidson X440 reigns as the top-tier motorcycle of the year.

The Harley-Davidson X440 marks the inaugural release resulting from the collaboration between Hero MotoCorp and Harley-Davidson. While opinions on its aesthetics may vary, the X440's performance and features left a lasting impression on the judging panel.

Competing in the Premium Motorcycle of the Year category against formidable contenders like the Hero Karizma XMR and the revamped KTM 250 Duke, the X440 faced a rigorous challenge. However, its compelling blend of performance, handling, and competitive pricing ultimately clinched the victory.

As the first modern Harley to feature a single-cylinder engine, tailored specifically for the Indian market in partnership with Hero MotoCorp, the X440 delivers engaging performance complemented by respectable refinement and handling. Its 440 cc air/oil-cooled engine generates 27 bhp at 6,000 rpm and 38 Nm at 4,000 rpm.

Equipped with full LED lighting and a sophisticated 3.5-inch color TFT display with Bluetooth connectivity, the X440 boasts premium touches like the Harley-Davidson badge adorning the LED headlight and indicators.

With its attractive pricing, commendable performance, and feature-rich offerings, the Harley-Davidson X440 presents a compelling overall package, serving as an ideal entry point into the Harley-Davidson family. Positioned to enhance accessibility to the Harley-Davidson brand in India, the X440 embodies the company's strategy to attract a broader customer base and achieve higher sales volumes.
