In the saddle of a Harley-Davidson® Softail®, no road is ever lonely. Sunlight breaks through treetops to dance on chromed steel. The wind offers its constant stream of praise. And the world unfolds before you with open arms. Maybe it’s because nothing else on the road compares with the timeless hardtail styling ... and nothing else feels like a Twin Cam 88B™ power mill rigid-mounted to the frame. Counterbalancing takes care of all but the good vibrations. You and the motorcycle become one, united by an unbreakable bond. Then you feel the hidden rear suspension smooth out the ride with a full 4" of travel. There’s no denying you’re in the saddle of a rolling masterpiece. This year, the Softail family of custom motorcycles welcomes its latest member. We invite you to turn the page and take a gander at the clean lines of the new Heritage Softail®. Additionally, all new bobtail models get a shot of adrenaline in the hindquarters — a brawny, road-hugging 200mm tire under a new wider fender. More rubber to stick to the pavement. More style to keep the eyes glued.
Sometimes the best trip you can take is one back to the basics. The Softail® Standard is just the bike for the job. Beautiful as seen here or decked out in Genuine Motor Parts and Accessories. The simple, classic lines begin with a raked fork. Head back to the horseshoe oil tank and the unmistakable shape of a wide bobtail fender. Once there, check out the brawny 200mm rear tire — a custom touch new for this year. It feels great teamed with the taut hidden suspension. Fire up the dual-counterbalanced, silver powder-coated Twin Cam 88B™, in carb or EFI, and your primal urge to blow out of town is about to be satisfied. Just gas up and go. Nothing is more basic than that.
