NEW DELHI: American super bike maker Harley-Davidson has launched four all-new Softail models that merge the hard-riding performance of the Dyna line with the custom look of the Softail line priced at Rs 11,99,000 (ex-showroom Delhi) to Rs 17,49,000.

Designed under the largest product development project in company history, the new bikes feature a stiffer and significantly lighter frame built to harness the high torque output of the new dual-counterbalanced Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine.

“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,” said Peter MacKenzie, managing director, Harley-Davidson India and China.

The four new Softails feature all-new designs that strongly differentiate them from their predecessors and each other.

A new high stiffness carbon steel tubular frame forms the core of the 2018 Softail chassis and combined with the swingarm significantly increases the rigidity of the chassis. The frame itself is 65 per cent stiffer than the outgoing Softail design, which leads to a 34 per cent increase in overall chassis stiffness.
