New 2018 Softail Motorcycles

01 October 2018

All-new from Harley-Davidson are eight new Softail bikes that are in stock and ready to ride. Redesigned and reinvigorated, these Softails have already proven to be some of the hottest bikes of the year.

Harley engineers took the reins redesigning the iconic Softail frame to perform better than ever before, and the effects of this decision can be felt throughout the bike. The frame was designed to accommodate the big Milwaukee-Eight engine, and the result is a lower center of gravity, slimmer profile, and minimal vibration. The suspension is more finely tuned, including the hidden rear monoshock system. Overall, the chassis is much stiffer and allows for harder handling and more aggressive riding. It’s all new, it’s all exciting, and it’s all ready to ride. Located in Paris, Texas, just a short drive from Sulphur Springs, Mt. Pleasant, Sherman, Como-Pickton, McKinney, and Texarkana!

Fat Boy® 114

The Fat Boy 114 looks like it just got back from a future where big, powerful cruisers handle like sportbikes and modern technology peacefully coexists with legacy design. It’s most striking feature is probably its solid disc wheels, but the huge front forks that lead up to a gleaming LED headlamp catch eyes, too.

Heritage Classic 114

The Heritage Classic 114 is the touring bike you always dreamed about. It doesn’t look like your standard touring bike thanks to design that transitions seamlessly from nostalgic bagger to modern, fire-breathing cruiser. It has the mixture of finishes including black painted engine components and chrome components that seem to come straight from the custom shop.

Deluxe

In a normal model year, the Deluxe might be the bike that heralds the arrival of a new era of motorcycles. But lucky for riders, Harley made it just one of eight stunning bikes. Like the Heritage Classic 114, it takes a classic approach to the design. With chrome exhaust pipes, a triple headlight, and whitewall tires, this bike is one heck of a showstopper.

Softail Slim®

Stripped down and lightning fast, the Softail Slim is what a bobber is supposed to be. There are no frills and no gimmicks no extraneous weight to hold it back. At the heart of this snarling beast is a Milwaukee-Eight 107 V-Twin engine, one of the most powerful engines Harley has ever released. And having shed 35 pounds from previous versions, you won’t believe the whiplash-fast acceleration and precise handling.

Breakout® 114

Breakout from the pack with an all new Breakout 114 from Harley-Davidson. This bike rides long, low, and fast, as all drag bikes should. It’s ultra-powerful engine is a Milwaukee-Eight 114, which helps this bike fly off the line. And thanks to eye-popping design that includes huge wheels (18 inches in the rear, 19 inches up front) you’ll have one of the best looking bikes on the block.

Fat Bob® 114

The Fat Bob 114 offers huge performance improvements from the previous model years. One major benefit of migrating to the Softail frame was the fact that it allowed the Fat Bob to shed 33 lbs on its way to a quicker, more agile body. Its aggressive design tells people you’re someone they don’t want to mess with.

Street Bob®

The Street Bob is light, powerful, and so much fun to ride you’ll forget whatever bland bikes you rode before. Equal parts retro and modern, the Street Bob is a case study for what respecting history while pushing development and innovation can yield. The Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine is also one of the most powerful to ever go in this bike, and it’s speed is undeniable.
