For over 30 years, the Softail® family has been one of Harley-Davidson®’s most popular motorcycle lines. They’re well known for their unique style and superior handling with a stiff, lightweight chassis. Not to mention, they’re easily customizable so you can fit it to your personal style and upgrade it with all the additional performance gear you need. Year after year, H-D® motorists come back to the Softail® line for a better quality ride and we want you to find out why for yourself. We’ve listed below some of the models we have in our showroom right now and what we like the most about them.
But there’s only one way to know for sure that you’ll love these models as much as we do. Stop by Southern Devil Harley-Davidson® in Cartersville, Georgia to take a look at these models and our other models in our showroom. We proudly serve the areas of Rome, Dalton, Cedartown, Jasper, and Cave Spring, Georgia.
For a bike that everyone will know comes from Harley-Davidson®, the Fat Boy® is the classic American bike with girth and muscle to cruise down the road. It’s powered by the all-new Milwaukee-Eight 107™ engine for superior driving power. But it’s the distinctive solid rim chrome disc wheels that really define this motorcycle. Everyone will immediately know what you’re cruising in when they see those wheels. With the big front forks and matching sized headlight, you’re practically a battering ram pushing through traffic. Throw on chrome mufflers and a wide, stable rear wheel and you’ve got the classic American muscle bike that has led the Fat Boy® to be one of the most popular Harley-Davidson® bikes on the market for nearly 30 years.
For the coming new releases, Harley-Davidson® took the Heritage Classic and added a dark twist. You’ll still have comfortable performance and classic style, including the 50s era Panhead inspired look, but the Heritage Classic is getting a modern upgrade. It’s trimmed off the unnecessary features and streamlined its look, including a detachable windscreen and new locking, hard-form leather-wrapped bags. It’s also getting the all-new Milwaukee-Eight 107™ engine with complete counterbalance to minimize vibrations and retain the Softail® family’s signature smooth ride. This particular version of the Milwaukee-Eight (the 107ci) makes this bike 10% faster. To make this bike even more enticing, the redesigned frame is 65% stiffer than previous models, which gives you better handling and superior performance.
If you’re a no-nonsense kind of person, then the completely stripped down Street Bob® is probably more up your alley. The new model is getting rid of old features like the Dyna® rubber engine mounts and twin shocks for even smoother performance. This may cause super fans to hesitate, but trust us, it’s truly made this bike a better quality ride. It keeps the 60s era style and enhances it with blacked out mini-ape handlebars, a minimalist front fender, and a simple, straightforward fork. To lighten the load even more, the compact fuel tank and blacked-out staggered dual exhaust are not only functional, but add to the light, unburdened look. The Street Bob® gives you easier handling at a lower price.
For the bike that’ll turn heads everywhere, you’ll want to check out the Softail Slim®. It’s getting all the standard upgrades for the new lineup: Milwaukee-Eight 107™ engine, 65% stiffer frame, and an overall 35-pound weight loss for more power and better performance and control. The Softail Slim® also comes with some of Harley-Davidson®’s top grade styling features. This includes the forward footboards and “Hollywood” handlebar for the perfect road ruling posture. For a modern finish, the bike’s parts have been blacked-out so you can ride in style.
We know this doesn’t exactly narrow down your choices. The Softail® family is one of Harley-Davidson®’s most beloved motorcycle lines for a reason and you’ve got to see these new models for yourself. Stop by Southern Devil Harley-Davidson® in Cartersville, Georgia so one of our experienced staff members can show you around and introduce you to the latest and greatest from the Harley-Davidson® factory. We welcome all riders from the areas of Rome, Dalton, Cedartown, Jasper, and Cave Spring, Georgia.
