HARLEY-DAVIDSON SOFTAIL®

THE STEEL FOUNDATION FOR OUR NEXT GENERATION OF CUSTOM MOTORCYCLES HAS BEEN FORGED.

No one has rolled more icon custom motorcycles into the world than Harley-Davidson. We could have left it at that. But that’s not what you do when you have custom motorcycles in your blood.

EIGHT ALL-NEW SOFTAIL® MODELS

     

We’ve combined the hard-riding performance of the Dyna® line with the unparalleled custom look of the Softail® line.

  • New Chassis – increased lean angles, sharper turn-in response, quicker acceleration, nimble flick-ability, lighter weight, and easier side-stand liftoff than predecessor Softail and Dyna models
  • Frame / swingarm – completely redesigned frame and swingarm significantly increase the rigidity of the new chassis.
  • High-Performance Suspension – new mono-shock rear suspension preserves the classic hard tail look while revamped geometry improves ride quality, traction and control. The new easily adjustable mono-shock enables a 240 pound range of payload capacity for increased passenger comfort and enhanced dynamic handling
  • Ride & Handling agility – the 2018 Softail models are the best handling cruisers Harley-Davidson has ever produced
  • Powertrain – All 2018 Softail models get a new heartbeat from the most powerful engines ever offered in Harley-Davidson® Big Twin cruisers, the new Milwaukee-Eight® 107 and 114 V-Twins
  • Iconic Look – Milwaukee-Eight engines retain the iconic 45-degree V-Twin cylinder angle with a broad-shouldered top end accentuated by a single camshaft design that tapers to a slim bottom end for a muscular contour. The new Softail frame’s rigid engine mounting is engineered to tightly package the engine and reinforce the chassis stiffness.
  • Smoother Running & Purer Sound – Milwaukee-Eight engines for Softail models feature a refined dual internally counter-balanced system that reduces engine vibration while maintaining the familiar Harley-Davidson feel. Harley-Davidson’s trademark “potato-potato-potato” sound comes through strong with less intake and mechanical noise.
  • Engine – Milwaukee-Eight 107 Comes Standard! Milwaukee-Eight 114 available on Fat Bob, Fat Boy, Breakout and Heritage Classic.

They’re our most mile-devouring bikes. Equipped with more power and control so you can go further in comfort. Times have never been better for those with an appetite for adventure.

POWERFUL, RESPONSIVE, AND UNLIKE ANYTHING YOU’VE FELT

With the pulse-quickening torque of the Milwaukee-Eight® engine at the heart, it’s a ride engineered to make you feel alive.

Street Glide Special and Road Glide Special models in a new design direction for 2018, swapping chrome for black. Powered by the muscular Milwaukee-Eight 107 (1746cc) engine, the two new hot rod baggers take the base level models and elevate them with an on-trend custom styling statement that is sinister in design and dark in its finishes.

Key Road Glide Special and Street Glide Special Motorcycle Features:

Style:

  • Dark finishes stretch from headlight to exhaust with new 19-inch (483 mm) front and 18-inch (457 mm) rear Talon wheels.
  • Dripping in black are the engine guard, front forks, handlebars and hand controls, mirrors, turn signals, tank console, engine covers, air cleaner cover, mufflers and exhaust shields.
  • Custom touches that create an aggressive, modern look include the stretched saddlebags that accentuate the bikes’ long, low profile and painted inner fairings.

Performance:

  • Hand-adjustable emulsion-technology rear shock absorbers offer 15 percent more pre-load adjustment than previous* low-profile touring shocks.
  • Front suspension features dual-bending valve suspension technology that delivers the damping performance of a racing-style cartridge fork with linear damping characteristics and reduced weight.

Power:

  • Each Milwaukee-Eight engine produces 10 percent more torque.* The Milwaukee-Eight 107 accelerates 11 percent quicker from 0-60 mph, equal to a two-to-three bike length improvement, and 11 percent quicker from 60-80 mph in top gear, equal to a one-to-two bike length improvement.* The Milwaukee-Eight engine offers improved rider and passenger thermal comfort due to reduced heat absorption, increased heat rejection and a redesigned exhaust system.
  • For improved fit, a new, slimmer primary drive cover and the low-profile shape of the air cleaner cover provide improved rider legroom around the engine and an easier reach to the ground for many riders.
  • All Milwaukee-Eight powered models are fitted with an assist and slip clutch with improved hydraulic actuation and 7 percent less clutch lever effort.
