Out of the total of 6 bikes which will be sacked, 2 are going to receive major updates, while the remaining 4 have sold way less than expected and Milwaukee will stop making them.

The 4 H-D modeld which sold in insufficient numbers are: the Sportster XR1200X, the Softail Blackline, the Electra Glide Classic FLHTC and the Road King FLHR. However, the Road King's versions have different destinies: the FLHRC will no longer be sold in the US, while the FLHR will be abandoned outside the US.

Two Road Glides will no longer be available for 2014: the Custom FLTRX and the Ultra FLTRU. These are said to be completely redesigned and manufacturing them requires new tooling and parts, but Harley-Davidson does not specify when will they be available again.

No word on the new models for 2014, but since it's only May, there still is plenty of time for the new treats.
