The Harley-Davidson X440 looks more butch and has a retro appeal


The biggest and the most apparent difference between the two is the way they look. The Harley-Davidson X440 did polarise opinion with regards to its design and so does the Hero Mavrick 440, but they look quite different. The X 440 has taken styling elements from the H-D XR1200 and its overall design is more unique and imposing. The rear section, particularly the fender, also stands out. The design has a butch and a modern classic feel to it. 

The Mavrick feels more toned down than the X440. It looks more commuter-ish


The Mavrick 440 is a roadster. But with a more commuter-esque design. The front end, with the round LED headlight, matte silver tank extensions and side panels and the telescopic fork make the bike look more commuter-ish and less butch. Plus, the base-spec model of the Mavrick gets spoke wheels, which will be more of a differentiator between the two motorcycles.

Colour Options

Engine Specifications

Both bikes get the same engine, making the same power output. But the Mavrick makes 2 Nm less at the same rpm

The H-D X440 makes the same power at same rpm but makes 38 Nm at the same rpm. Both motorcycles are paired to a 6-speed gearbox.  But the difference of 2 Nm in the torque output is more or less nullified by the fact that the top-spec Mavrick is 3.5 kg lighter than the top-spec X440. The Mavrick weighs in at 187 kg, while its Harley cousin weighs 190.5 kg.
