Custom front wheel, short shots, apes, stage 1.
In the saddle of a Harley-Davidson® Softail®, no road is ever lonely. Sunlight breaks through treetops to dance on chromed steel. The wind offers its constant stream of praise. And the world unfolds before you with open arms. Maybe it’s because nothing else on the road compares with the timeless hardtail styling ... and nothing else feels like a Twin Cam 88B™ power mill rigid-mounted to the frame. Counterbalancing takes care of all but the good vibrations. You and the motorcycle become one, united by an unbreakable bond. Then you feel the hidden rear suspension smooth out the ride with a full 4" of travel. There’s no denying you’re in the saddle of a rolling masterpiece. This year, the Softail family of custom motorcycles welcomes its latest member. We invite you to turn the page and take a gander at the clean lines of the new Heritage Softail®. Additionally, all new bobtail models get a shot of adrenaline in the hindquarters — a brawny, road-hugging 200mm tire under a new wider fender. More rubber to stick to the pavement. More style to keep the eyes glued. Get in the Badlander® seat. Reach for the drag-style bar. Then stretch out to the forward controls. In this riding position, it’s easy to see why the Night Train® is notorious for causing a stir. This year, it gets a fatter 200mm rear tire on a Black Slotted Aluminum Disc wheel — the aggressive look you want, done right by the factory. New, widened bobtail fender. All nicely balancing out a narrow, raked front. To push the custom street look further, we blacked out the tank console, air cleaner cover, oil tank and rear fender supports. At the center is the black powder-coated Twin Cam 88™ engine belting out a haunting melody. No matter the hour, night is always just a throttle turn away.
