Harley-Davidson® has redesigned, rebuilt and reinvented its celebrated Softail® range and a quick look at the eight, all-new Softail® motorcycles will underline how exquisite these new models really are.

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™ 107ci (1745cc) and 114ci (1868cc) V-Twins. The Milwaukee-Eight™ engines retain the iconic 45-degree V-Twin cylinder angle with a broad-shouldered top end emphasised by a single camshaft design that tapers to a slim bottom end for a muscular contour. Softail® models also feature a refined, dual internally counter-balanced system that reduces engine vibration while maintaining the familiar Harley-Davidson® feel. The trademark Harley-Davidson® ‘potato-potato-potato’ sound comes through strong with less intake and mechanical noise. The end result is a stunning looking engine with more pulling power delivering maximum smiles on any ride.

The handling of a Softail® now enters a new era with a lighter, more rigid frame that elevates form and function to a higher plane, while maintaining the classic look of a hardtail and delivering a thoroughly modern ride. Benefits of the new chassis include increased lean angles for many models, sharper turn-in response, quicker acceleration, agility, lighter weight and easier side-stand lift off than previous models. That smile from riding a new Softail® has just got wider!

Add to this, new LED headlights across the Softail® range, USB charging points and styling to suit everybody, the new Softail® models are ready to deliver an unforgettable ride every day. Are you ready to ride them?
