Harley-Davidson India Launch 2018 Softail Line

The iconic Fat Boy, which still retains the generous amounts of chrome, looks pretty dashing with the new LED headlamp unit and updated styling. Harley-Davidson have introduced the new Showa Dual Bending Valve front forks on the entire Softail line-up for better feel, handling, and ride-quality. The bike also gets a rear monoshock with tool-less preload adjustment.

The Fat Bob has got a rather dramatic update in the form of the new Daymaker Projector LED lamps and inverted front forks. The bike is being pitched as a sportier cruiser rather a traditional one and that’s the reason for the USD fork and easy-adjustable rear monoshock. The Fat Bob also gets 2-1-2 exhaust with upswept end-cans, dual front disc brakes, and cast wheels with wide tyres. The Fat Bob will be available with the same Milwaukee Eight 107 V-twin motor.

The Street Bob retains its minimalistic bobber style with all the new mechanical changes integrated beautifully into it. However, it gets a new digital instrument console, albeit with minimalistic elements being displayed on the screen. It continues to have mini-ape hanger handlebars, wire-wheels and a tiny headlamp.

The Heritage Classic, which is the more traditional cruiser, gets new lockable and water-proof saddlebags, Daymaker Signature LED headlamps, detachable windscreen, cruise control, wire-wheels, a well-balanced chrome and blacked out theme, and dual-tone paint options.

All these four bikes are now available at all the H-D dealerships across the country. Make sure to grab your copy of Bike India’s November issue to read our first ride reports of the Fat Bob and Street Bob.

I am fascinated by every aspect of a motorcycle, regardless of their genre. I am insanely crazy about motorcycles!
