Celebrating its 115th Anniversary year, Harley-Davidson has launched five new Touring bikes and eight all-new Softail Big-Twin cruiser models designed under the largest product development project in the company’s history. Each new cruiser motorcycle was redesigned from the ground-up and features the Milwaukee-Eight™ engine, an all-new frame and advanced technology to form a new foundation of style, comfort and performance.
The aggressively styled 2018 Softail models merge the hard-riding performance of the Dyna® line with the unparalleled custom look of the Softail line, interpreting Harley-Davidson’s history, authenticity and styling DNA through a modern lens. With stiffer and significantly lighter frames to harness the pulse-quickening torque of the new dual-counterbalanced Milwaukee-Eight® 107 and 114 engines, each bike is faster, lighter and handles better than any Big Twin cruiser predecessor.
The eight new Softail models include the Fat Boy, Fat Bob, Heritage Classic, Low Rider, Softail Slim, Deluxe, Breakout and Street Bob. New technology features on each model include Daymaker Signature LED Headlamps, an integrated USB charging port, improved electrical system charging, new instrumentation and fuel tanks. The new Touring models included redesigns of the top-selling Street Glide Special and Road Glide Special models and three new top of the line Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) models powered by the new 117ci Milwaukee-Eight engine, the most powerful ever offered by Harley-Davidson.
