To cel­e­brate its 115th an­niver­sary year, Har­ley-david­son has launched eight all­new Sof­tail mod­els. The new bikes fea­ture a stiffer and sig­nif­i­cantly lighter frame built for the torque of the new dual-coun­ter­bal­anced Mil­wau­kee-eight 107 and 114 en­gines. The bikes also come with a high-per­for­mance front sus­pen­sion and an ad­justable hid­den rear monoshock, re­plac­ing the aged and un­tun­able pull shocks of past Softails. These up­graded 2018 Sof­tail mod­els are 65-per­cent stiffer, sub­stan­tially lighter, and from what the Moco says, they’re bet­ter han­dling than any of this model’s pre­de­ces­sors. We will be road test­ing all of these new Softails real soon and will let you know our thoughts on them. So stay tuned!
