About Harley Davidson Heritage Classic

For 2018 the Heritage Classic has been completely revised. It now carries a new, more modern design, a new motor and an all-new chassis. The front carries a cleaner look with a large round LED headlamp flanked by two auxiliary lamps, and behind it sits a large detachable windscreen. The tail section includes two large lockable saddlebags with enough space to carry clothes for a week-long trip. It gets the new Milwaukee Eight motor which is more refined and torquier than before. Complementing the motor is the new Softail chassis which is lighter and more rigid. Suspension include new front forks and a rear monoshock shock absorber. Riding position is comfortable thanks to a higher handlebar setup and forward-set footpegs. The seat is very comfortable, though it could be a bit of bother given its softer cushioning. Electronics include ABS but no traction control.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Heritage Classic

Q. Which is the best bike out of these three Honda Goldwing, Heritage Softail classic or Hayabusa - Gold Wing?
  • In terms of a cruiser full of features, refined engine and a beautiful stance the Honda Goldwing steals the show. The Honda Goldwing has been glorified with the features such as keyless ignition, an electronically-controlled windscreen, music system, heated grips, adjustable suspension and even an air-bag as an option. Moreover, the Honda Goldwing has a got 4 modes first time in the Goldwing's history. The Harley Davidson Heritage Softail Classic is a legendary cruiser with the classic retro build as an astonishing engine. The bike definitely defines the Harleys legacy with classic use of the metal. However, the big has been offered with a very low ground clearance(120mm) which could face issues when it comes to the Indian roads with bumpy speed breakers. If we talk about the most ballistic option out of the 3 bikes, Suzuki Hayabusa is the speed monster with every inch of the bike craving for more speed. The Hayabusa is more of a superbike focused for high speed with a more tucked in riding posture and an enormous amount of torque under it.Click here for the comparison: https://www.zigwheels.com/bike-comparison/harley-davidson-heritage-softail-classic-vs-honda-gold-wing-gl-1800-vs-suzuki-hayabusa
  • Hayabusa is best sports bike...and gold is best luxury bike
Q. Anyone please tell me the best harley davidson bike specially on indian roads - Heritage Classic?
  • You can look out for Harley Davidson Street 750. The most affordable Harley-Davidson offers a motor eager to throttle responses and acceleration is brisk. Gear ratios are suitably distributed and gearbox shifts are precise. While the Street 750 offers very good handling, whether within city streets or on a curvy road, the brakes could have been better, more progressive.
