One of the major achievements with the new Softail® is the new frame. Keeping the same look with up to 35 lbs in weight reduction. The new frame also achieves a 34% increase in stiffness in the chassis as a whole, as well as benefiting the rider with improved lean angles. A mono-shock replaces the dual shock setup smoothing out the bumps in a more linear fashion.
All these new innovations come together like a fine symphony, and give the rider confidence and a thrill unlike any other. The weight reduction alone is felt immediately while negotiating the twisties on a back road jaunt. This coupled with the new engine choices in the Milwaukee Eight lead to a 10% faster rocket ride from nought to 60 mph.
Come on in and throw a leg over one and feel the difference!
