Harley-Davidson Street Bob and Fat Boy Models

NEW for the Harley-Davidson Softail line, the Street Bob model receives a displacement upgrade with the Milwaukee-Eight 114 engine in addition to its stripped-down styling and no-nonsense performance for a new model, Street Bob 114.

Also, new for the 2021 Softail models, the legendary Fat Boy 114 model is re-styled with brilliant chrome.

The Harley-Davidson Softail chassis offers the look of a classic hardtail frame but is underpinned by modern suspension for a smooth ride and outstanding handling. A single coilover shock located between the frame and swingarm is out of view below the seat. The chassis design is optimised to reduce weight without sacrificing stiffness.

The rigid-mounted Milwaukee-Eight V-Twin engine further stiffens the entire chassis and contributes to a platform that delivers strong acceleration and responsive handling and braking performance.

The Milwaukee-Eight V-Twin engine design with 45-degree cylinder angle maintains classic Harley-Davidson look-sound-feel. Because it is rigid mounted in the frame, the engine is equipped with dual counter-balancers to cancel primary vibration at idle for improved rider and passenger comfort. Four-valve cylinder heads (two exhaust and two intake valves per head, eight total) promote airflow through the engine and contribute to power output, and dual spark plugs ensure more complete combustion to maximise power and efficiency.

Advanced cylinder head design, dual knock sensors, and precision cooling allow a 10.0:1 compression ratio for strong torque output and acceleration, while a single camshaft helps reduce mechanical noise so a richer exhaust tone can predominate.

NEW Street Bob 114 Model

THE Street Bob 114 model is a tough-looking bike that was intended to be ridden hard. The lightest-weight Softail model equipped with a Milwaukee-Eight 114 engine, the Street Bob 114 motorcycle is a quick-and-nimble ride with power to spare — 9 percent quicker 0-to-60 mph and 13 percent quicker 60-to-80 mph in fifth gear than the previous Street Bob model with Milwaukee-Eight 107 power. 

This bike displays authentic bobber attitude, from its mini-ape handlebar to the chopped rear fender. The digital riser gauge keeps the front end clean and uncluttered, like the speedometer got stripped off and tossed on the work bench.

The price leaves budget room for Screamin’ Eagle performance upgrades and further customisation.
