A 500cc parallel-twin Harley-Davidson has been sighted. India might see a launch.

Under its cooperation with the Qianjiang Group, the parent company of Benelli, Harley-Davidson is developing numerous entry-level models that are expected to be sold in China and many developing regions, including India.

In recent news, a new made-in-China Harley-Davidson has been seen, which is believed to be the company's second model (Harley-Davidson 338R) under its cooperation with the Chinese auto giant.

While the Harley-Davidson 338R has yet to be formally released in the global market, prior sources suggested that the made-in-China H-D 338R has been registered with the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, implying that an official debut is imminent.

The fresh photographs show that the Fatboy manufacturer has begun development on a separate 500 cc parallel-twin engine bike with a roadster shell. The new motorbike appears to be based on the Benelli Leoncino 500, since it shares components such as the Leoncino 500's chassis, front suspension, radial brake callipers, and swingarm. Other components that appear to be carried over include cast alloy wheels, handlebar and footpeg hangars.
