With full scale manufacturing operations happening at the Thailand plant from 2019, prices of 2020 Harley-Davidson (H-D) motorcycles in Malaysia have taken a significant drop, especially for the big touring rigs. The 2020 Harley-Davidson price list for Malaysia sees a rationalisation of prices, with savings of up to RM30,000 in the FLH class of touring V-twins.

Notably, the FLHR Road King in Vivid Black can now be purchased for RM138,500, down from last year’s CBU price of RM176,900 with similar savings in the Colour, Two-Tone and Custom paint options. At the top of H-D’s touring motorcycle range, the Ultra Limited goes down to RM188,600 from RM220,700, a savings of RM32,100.

For the Softail range where prices were already adjusted for CBU in 2019, not much change is seen in pricing, save for an average rise of about RM500 for most prices. All 2020 Softails are available in the base colour of Vivid Black or with a RM2,000 upcharge for colour, while Two-Tone, Custom and Custom Two-Tone options are available for significantly more.

At the bottom of the range are the Sportsters which, like the Softails, are already available in Malaysia in CKD form with pricing attracting a very slight increase. At the top end of the range, the CVO and Trike models are priced from RM229,400 for the FLRT Freewheeler trike, topping out at RM419,700 for the FLTRXSE CVO Road Glide.

In related news, operations have begun at H-D Malaysia’s new branch located in Kota Kinabalu Sabah with customer bikes being serviced and full showroom operations expected to commence in the first quarter of 2020, joining its branches in Malacca and Penang. This is inline with H-D Malaysia’s expansion plans with another showroom expected to open after location scouting is completed.
