Harley-Davidson Softail Heritage and Fatboy Special in action

 

 

Heritage Class:

 

I would be lying if I said I didn’t lust for the matte black Fatboy before Abhishek swiftly clinched the keys of it and assigned the Softail Heritage to me. But I wasn’t too disappointed as the Softail too is no slouch when compared to its more famous sibling. While it might not posses the Hollywood links as the Fatboy but when one thinks of a Harley-Davidson, the first image that strikes your mind is a big motorcycle with a gleaming V-twin nestled below a huge tank and that’s what the Softail is – a pure-bred cruiser. 

 

 

White side-walled tyres on chrome finished spoke rim

 

 

When you gaze your eyes on this American muscle on two-wheels, you are swayed by its enormous size. But even with this bulk the proportion of the bike has been well captured all around and it doesn’t look overgrown or swollen from any angle. The Softail is all about details, the huge and flowing fenders, white side-walled tyres on chrome finished spoke rims with a chunky wheel hub, huge bulging tank and big handle bars. Harley has given the bike dollops of chrome which are clearly visible on the V-twin heart of the bike, the massive front forks, the commanding 7-inch triple headlights and the double barrel exhaust pipes.
