Sometimes something comes along that changes everything

Authentic Styling

Get an eyeful of a Softail® motorcycle and you see more than some weepy-eyed exercise in nostalgia. You're looking at the kind of style that has the power to defy time. Honest. Uncluttered. Unaffected by the fad of the moment. There's a good reason for this. We've used our long decades on the road, riding, wrenching, talking to other custom bike fanatics, to discover what works. Then we stick with it, and use it to push the boundaries of motorcycle design ever further. Take a look at the horseshoe oil tank adorning our Softail® models. It's the same one you'd see on a restored dresser from the '50s, or a radical Panhead chopper from the '70s. And you'll find it right now on future Harley-Davidson® models that still on the drawing board. Other companies may be content to imitate bits and pieces from our long history. On a Softail® motorcycle every part down to the axle nut cover comes from an authentic tradition. With a genuine reason for looking the way it looks.

Iconic Engine

The air-cooled 45 ° V-Twin engine at the heart of every Softail® model is a prime example of what makes a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle more satisfying than anything else. Its clean, uncluttered shape fits perfectly in the downtubes of the frame. Twist the throttle and the surge of torque hits you exactly where it counts. The knowledge of what makes an engine truly move a rider runs deep at The Motor Company, and it's been put to particular good use to power the Softail® family. We counterbalance the engine, which means we can bolt it directly to the frame. It keeps the styling tight at the centre of the bike. It lets the rider feel the pulse of the V-Twin. With the High Output Twin Cam 103B ™ engine, there aren't any vibrations rattling the fillings out of your teeth. More power is always a Harley-Davidson® tradition.

Comfort

The authentic look of a Softail® motorcycle comes from the days before anyone knew much about building a suspension. The rigid hardtail frames of yesteryear had a pure, uncluttered look that riders still love. But the bone-rattling ride meant your grandpa needed to strap on a kidney belt to keep his internals intact. The Softail® family uses modern technology to consign the kidney belt to the museum. We've kept all the modern comforts where they belong-below the surface of a rad bike loaded with authentic style. You get the classic lines of a vintage "hardtail" frame with the horizontal rear shocks hidden in the guts. It's a signature rigid look, and you'll only find it on a Softail® model.
