THE NEW 2018 MODELS AND REVIEWS ARE ROLLING IN

The all-new 2018 Harley-Davidson Softail® models have arrived at Harleyworld Chesterfield and are ready and primed for viewing and test rides.

The new Softail range consists of eight totally reinvented Harley-Davidson motorcycles that encompass the riding dynamics of the iconic Dyna® line with the awesome Softail styling that many have tried but failed to replicate.

Featuring the latest 107ci Milwaukee-Eight® engine – with some models such as the legendary Fat Bob® available with an all-powerful 114ci version – in a thoroughly modern chassis, the Softail range go as well as they look. But don’t just take our word for it…

Last week the UK and Ireland motorcycle media got to grips with the new Softail range in the heart of the Montseny mountains, just 45 minutes from Barcelona, Spain. The twisting and undulating roads proved to be fun to ride, moreover they highlighted how exceptional the new Softail bikes really are.

Online specialist BikeSocial kicked off the first ride reviews of the new Softail range with an in-depth report on the all-new Fat Bob®. The bike’s 114ci engine surprised the rider into saying: “There’s proper go in the 114 motor too – the typical thudding Harley exhaust bark is more prominent with less mechanical noise to mask it; pin the bike and it roars like it means it, shoveling great gobs of air through the bores like a drag motor.”

Chris Cope of online motorcycle media RideApart praised the latest Heritage Classic, citing it as “…one of the best big twins Harley’s ever made. More importantly, it doesn’t need to rely on its storied name to be desirable.”

Motorcycle website Visordown also said of the new Heritage Classic: “This bike is great fun to ride, and embodies the classic spirit of Harley-Davidson, in an updated, darker package. You get a lot of bike for your money and there are tons of additional options available.”

But don’t just take their word for it, find out for yourself why the Harley-Davidson custom revolution is a major talking point.
