Other than this, here are model-wise lists of new features-
All 2018 Softail models get the most powerful engines ever offered in Harley-Davidson Big Twin cruisers. The new Milwaukee-Eight 107 V-Twin engines retain the iconic 45-degree V-Twin cylinder angle with a broad-shouldered top end accentuated by a single camshaft design that tapers to a slim bottom end for a muscular contour.
A new high stiffness carbon steel tubular frame forms the core of the 2018 Softail chassis. The frame is 65% stiffer than the outgoing Softail design, which leads to a 34% increase in overall chassis stiffness. Its design also achieves reduced complexity with a 50% reduction in component parts and 22% reduction in welds. There are two unique swingarms, one for narrow and one for wide rear tires. The wide chassis is 5.89kg (15%) lighter, while the narrow chassis shaves 8.16kg (20%).
Brand new high-performance dual-bending valve front suspension delivers damping performance that’s similar to a cartridge fork but with improved, more responsive damping characteristics. It’s optimised for both comfortable cruising and spirited riding with 130mm of travel. Revised rake and trail also enhance handling ability. The new monoshock rear suspension preserves the classic hardtail. Easily adjustable for spring preload, it enables a 217kg range of payload. The all-new Softail models are up to 17kg lighter than before.
