With the opening of its Thailand manufacturing facility, Harley-Davidson has announced pricing for its Sportster and Softtail range in Malaysia will drop. While details were not forthcoming about which models would be repriced, it was said that the Sportster range would begin at RM62,600, which we assume would be for the XL883L which currently retails for RM76,426 or the XL883N Iron Horse, priced at RM86,072.

For the Softtail range, which counts 17 specific models and 34 model variants, 2019 pricing starts from RM97,200. This might apply to the FXBB Street Bob, which retails for RM113,632 while the Softtail range tops out with the FLFBS Fat Boy Anniversary at RM178,928.

The announcement was made ahead of the official opening of Harley-Davidson Penang in Prai, Pulau Pinang, on 16 March, when the new pricing takes effect. This makes the third Harley-Davidson showroom to open in Malaysia, following the opening of Harley-Davidson Melaka and the Harley-Davidson Petaling Jaya headquarters in The Gasket Alley.
