Fat Boy also getting a new look for 2021: it has been given shiny chrome elements. The Softail series includes classic, shiny chrome and dark-looking models that are just as suitable for relaxed cruising as they are for dynamic surfing on winding country roads.

The stiff Softail chassis ensures easy handling and good braking. Although it looks like a classic hardtail frame, it has a suspension that is hidden from the viewer's eye and ensures comfortable driving: a central spring strut below the seat supports the swing arm towards the frame. The Milwaukee Eight V-Twin, which is rigidly connected to the frame, helps to stabilize the chassis and also ensures powerful acceleration and powerful pulling power.

With a cylinder angle of 45 degrees, this engine is a classic Harley-Davidson engine in both style and sound and feel. To reduce its vibrations, the V2 has two balancer shafts. Torque and performance benefit from four-valve heads that optimize gas exchange and cylinder filling, and dual ignition that increases combustion efficiency. To better emphasize the exhaust note, moving mechanical components such as the single, chain-driven camshaft produce only very low noise. A modern cylinder head design with an oil-cooled exhaust area and two knock sensors allows a compression ratio of 10.0:1, which once again benefits performance.

The upgraded Street Bob 114

For years, the Street Bob has been considered a classically styled Harley that is just as suitable for relaxed cruising as it is for dynamic driving. In 2021 it will undergo an extensive upgrade as it will now be powered by the Milwaukee-Eight 114. This makes it one of the lightest Softail models powered by this powerful engine.

Compared to its predecessor with the Milwaukee-Eight 107, the acceleration from zero to 60 mph (96.6 km/h) was around nine percent and the acceleration from 60 to 80 mph (96.6 km/h to 128.7 km /h) in fifth gear can be optimized by around 13 percent. From the mini apehanger handlebars to the tightly cut rear fender, the machine is a real chopper. Thanks to the instrument display integrated into the riser, the front end looks very tidy and the price still leaves enough room for customization.
