Harley Davidson India has launched the 2018 Softail range that include Fat Boy for Rs. 17.49 lakh Street Bob for Rs.11.99 lakh, Fat Bob for Rs.13,99 lakh and Heritage Classic for Rs. 18.99 lakh ( All prices Ex-showroom, India)



The 2018 Fat Boy features a new version of the 8-valve Milwaukee-Eight engine with dual counter balancers that not only seem to omit primary vibrations but also make room for the engine to be mounted a lot more firmly in the frame, further increasing the stiffness of the chassis for improved handling. Harley-Davidson claims that the 1745cc, V-twin, oil-cooled engine produces 144 Nm of peak torque at 3000rpm, which is 12 Nm more than the outgoing model. The new engine has also made this new cruiser ten per cent faster from 0-60kmph when compared to the Twin Cam 103 motor used earlier.


The 2018 Fat Bob is powered by the new 8-valve Milwaukee-Eight engine that offers more power and refinement compared to the older powerplant. Harley-Davidson claims that the 1745cc, V-twin, oil-cooled engine produces 145Nm of peak torque at 3000rpm, which is a massive 24Nm more than the outgoing model. The new V-twin motor comes with dual counterbalancers in order to negate primary vibrations. It gets square LED headlight, massive USD forks, chunky tyres and the massive twin exhaust muffler. 




The Harley-Davidson Heritage Classic has a textbook cruiser styling with chrome and bling. For the new 2018 model, Harley designers have maintained the old-school elements like the chunky mudguard, tall windscreen and saddlebags, but given it a modern LED headlamp and dual-tone paint job in dazzling shades. Also, the new bike gets lot of blacked-out elements which along with the chrome elements make the bike look appealing. The bike also gets lockable and sealed saddlebags. Cruise control also makes its debut on the new bike and the windshield is detachable. The powerplant is the same 1745cc V-twin, oil-cooled engine as seen on the Fat Bob, that delivers 144Nm of torque. 



The new Street Bob will be the most affordable motorcycle in the 2018 Softail range. True to the Bobber tradition, the bike has a stripped down look and is among the most popular options for bikers who like to customise their motorcycles. The bike gets ape-styled handlebars, chopped fender and a petite fuel tank along with blacked-out staggered dual exhausts. The 107 Milwaukee-Eight motor delivers 144Nm of torque while the bike weighs 286kg.
