Based on the Harley-Davidson X440’s platform in India, the Maverick 440 promises a unique identity. Let’s explore the distinctions between these two formidable bikes.
Divergence in Design: Leaked images reveal a neo-retro design for the Maverick 440, featuring a distinctive round headlamp with an H-shaped LED DRL and LED turn signals reminiscent of its Harley-Davidson counterpart. Notably, the Maverick distinguishes itself with traditional telescopic front forks, a short front fender, an upright seating position, and a less aggressive front footpeg placement. The muscular fuel tank, extending to faux air intakes and circular mirrors on the upright handlebar, adds to its roadster allure.
Varied Wheels and Instrument Cluster: In contrast to the Harley-Davidson X440’s single-pod TFT console, the Hero Maverick 440 is anticipated to sport a semi-digital unit. Additionally, the alloy wheels on the Maverick will deviate from the X440’s design.
Engine Specifications and Pricing Disparities: Powering the Maverick 440 is a 440cc, single-cylinder, fuel-injected engine, generating 27hp and 38Nm of peak torque.
Coupled with a six-speed gearbox, the engine may feature slight tuning differences compared to the X440. Boasting front and rear disc brakes supported by a dual-channel ABS system, the Maverick 440 is expected to hit the market with a price just above Rs. 2 lakh. In comparison, the Harley-Davidson X440 begins at Rs. 2.40 lakh (ex-showroom).
This detailed overview provides a sneak peek into the distinctive features that make the Hero Maverick 440 stand out in its class, setting it apart from its Harley-Davidson counterpart.
