Oct 13: Harley-Davidson has come up with an all-new Softail range for 2018 in India, launching four new models. Prices for the new 2018 Harley-Davidson Softail range are: Street Bob (Rs 11.99 lakh), Fat Bob (Rs 13.99 lakh), Fat Boy (Rs 17.49 lakh) and Heritage Softail Classic (Rs 18.99 lakh) (ex- showroom Delhi).
All these new motorcycles have been launched as part of the company’s 115th anniversary. The four new models get both cosmetic and mechanical updates and look much different from their outgoing versions.
The most prominent change to the 2018 Harley-Davidson Softail Range is the new Milwaukee Eight engine, along with new chassis, making the motorcycles lighter. The updated suspension setup is expected to help the bikes offer better ride and handling.
Peter MacKenzie, Managing Director, Harley-Davidson India and China said, “Our new offerings strongly demonstrate Harley-Davidson’s focus on reinventing products for motorcycle enthusiasts and aspiring riders. The 2018 Softail custom motorcycles have been inspired by Harley-Davidson’s history, authenticity, and styling DNA through a modern lens. The response to the first look has been very positive and we are confident that the motorcycles will further enhance the sport of leisure motorcycling in India.”
Common features on all the four motorcycles are LED headlights, new fuel tank, improved electrical system charging, new instrumentation and steering head mounted USB charging port.
