'I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to ride some of the new 2018 models and was certainly not disappointed. They were lighter, lower, smoother and handled brilliantly. Try em, ride em, enjoy em!'
'These bikes were simply amazing. Absolutely impressed with the changes to the Softail® models. More power and smooth shifting made the day more fun riding these bikes. Can't wait to ride these again!!!'
'After seeing the new Softail® lineup over in America, I was stoked for the opportunity to ride them as Harley-Davidson UK put on a cracking dealership event here in the UK that gave us access to the new models and they did not disappoint! Harley-Davidson® have said this is the biggest launch of a new range in their history, it’s certainly the biggest but also the best for me. Until you’re actually about the ride you never truly appreciate just how much of a difference there is, here we go I thought as I was about to get this 114 Fat Boy® rolling. This bike instantly made me smile, the agility was great but it still had the presence that’s been felt on this model since ’90. After riding the competitor bikes and the 2017 Fat Boy®, which still felt brilliant, I was back on a new Softail® but this time I was on the grown up, newly welcomed to the family, Low Rider®. For me this didn’t feel like the Softail® as we know it but it wasn’t a Dyna either, this really is a new age of Softail®. Personally the bars aren’t quite to my fit but that’s an easy fix, with a slightly wider set of handlebars the Low Rider® would tick the boxes for me. Finally I was on to my hero bike of the day, the 114 Fat Bob®, an absolute bad boy of a machine! The last stretch of the ride was the fastest and had the most twists so I couldn’t have been on a better bike at this stage. The power coming from the 114 Milwaukee-Eight® engine was incredible, gripping to the tarmac and lighting up immediately, the handling was also amazing, throwing it around the twisty roads was a dream and the entire ride was comfortable too. The bike constantly felt planted and also wanted to give you so much more. I certainly can’t wait to get my hands on these bikes again, they really have to be ridden to fully appreciate just how amazing they are, I want everyone to experience these bikes, Harley® and non Harley® fans, you’ll love them!!'
'After riding the new 2018 Softail range, you can understand why Harley-Davidson took the bold step that they did with the Dyna range. By making the New Softail platform both lighter and stiffer than the previous two frames, they are able to incorporate the dynamics and styling of both frames. Add to that the all-new Milwaukee-Eight engine and you have an amazing new range of bikes to take them into the future. Harley have looked at their existing customers and have moved things forward in a way never before attempted by any motorcycle company. A whole new range of bike based on existing models with Completely new engineering and technology. Every motorcyclist should experience a new 2018 Softail.'
