Harley-Davidson and Suzuki are introducing several new models for 2011. Harley-Davidson is debuting the new SuperLow, on which Women Riders Now editor Genevieve Schmitt got an exclusive test ride. Also for 2011 is the race inspired XR1200X, and the Road Glide Ultra, a new touring model. In addition, four CVO models are being unveiled.
Other highlights for 2011 include select touring models getting the new Harley-Davidson PowerPak, which bundles the Twin Cam 103 engine with ABS and the H-D Smart Security System. PowerPak is a standard feature on the 2011 Road King Classic, Electra Glide Ultra Limited, and Road Glide Ultra models, and will be available as a factory-installed option on the 2011 Street Glide and Road Glide Custom models.
2011 Harley-Davidson Softail models except Cross Bones are newly available with optional ABS. And the 2011 VRSC power-cruisers are available with a new Security Package option, which bundles ABS with a Smart Security System for greater value. Michelin Scorcher tires and new colors and graphics round out changes to the Night Rod Special and the V-Rod Muscle.
Each of the four 2011 Dynas are offered in new colors. And Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) offers four premium, limited-production motorcycles for 2011.
Suzuki is releasing several new models for 2011 that it took out of its lineup for 2010 including the V-Strom 650 ABS, the Hayabusa, Boulevard S40, Boulevard M109R and Boulevard M109R Limited.
