Harley-Davidson is wielding the axe with reports stating that six models will be discontinued from its 2014 line-up.

According to a leaked memo sent out to the iconic bike company's dealers, a number of motorcycles will be scrapped for next year due to a decline in the number of sales on these particular models.

The models are believed to the XR1200X Sportster, the FXS Softail Blackline and the FLHTC Electra Glide Classic due to declining sales. It will also be the end of the line for the FLTRX Road Glide Custom and FLTRU Road Glide Ultra.

Harley-Davidson is looking to drop the FLHRC Road King Classic in North America while the FLHR Road King will be discontinued in other markets.

"Making both design and build changes during this time will enable us to more quickly reintroduce a more innovative and better-than-ever Road Glide for your touring customers. Additional information on the reintroduction of the Road Glide will be shared at the 2013 Annual Dealer Meeting in August," the memo read.
