Dark Custom Soul
The new Iron 883 has a modern design inspired by garage-built bobbers, past and present. All-new front and adjustable rear suspension, lighter-weight mag wheels and improved seating increase comfort and control to smooth the road ahead.
The new Forty-Eight achieves its menacing stance with a burly front tyre, new mag wheels and a massive front end with new 49mm forks, while also benefitting from improved adjustable rear suspension and seating. Retro styling cues and a perfect ratio of black, colour and chrome give this bike a bold visual presence.
Riders navigating urban streets on the lean and nimble Harley-Davidson Street® 750 model will appreciate the improved confidence from new front and rear braking systems.
Most powerful Cruiser line-up ever
Powered by the Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 110 engine, the new Fat Boy S and Softail Slim S cruisers deliver power and performance once reserved for Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) models. Both limited-edition models feature dark styling for menacing looks that match their muscle. The Softail Slim S is available in a new Olive Gold Denim color with military-inspired styling, paying homage to the post-war customs that launched the bobber movement. Harley-Davidson gives more riders a dose of Project Rushmore performance by making the High Output Twin Cam 103 engine standard in every other 2016 Softail model.
Softail Cruise Control
There’s more cruiser news in 2016; for the first time ever electronic cruise control is available on all Harley-Davidson Softail models. The convenience of Harley-Davidson electronic cruise control, enabled by new electronic throttle control, is standard equipment on 2016 Heritage Softail® Classic, Softail® Deluxe, Fat Boy S and Softail Slim S models and available as an accessory for all other 2016 Softail models.
New Sportster Suspension
All 2016 Sportster® models benefit from all-new front and rear suspension and improved seats working together to enhance rider comfort and control.
Road Glide Ultra
A two-year absence from the Harley-Davidson Touring line was time well spent infusing the Road Glide Ultra with enhanced style, outstanding aerodynamics and optimized touring ergonomics for rider and passenger– the full influence of the customer-led Project Rushmore product-development effort. Propelled by the unrelenting performance of the Twin-Cooled™ High Output Twin Cam 103™ powertrain, the new Road Glide Ultra will exceed the expectations of the most demanding touring motorcyclist.
Heritage Softail Classic
Combining nostalgic style with smooth, modern Softail performance, the Heritage Softail Classic receives refreshed styling for 2016 plus the High Output Twin Cam 103 powertrain, standard electronic cruise control, and a new and improved saddlebag support structure.
Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO)™
Loaded for the long-haul aficionado, the 2016 CVO™ Limited model features an all-new paint scheme and new tank badges. Offering outstanding aerodynamics for rider and passenger, the 2016 CVO™ Road Glide® Ultra motorcycle is available in three new paint colour combinations with revised comfort and technical features. The audio quality of the 2016 CVO™ Street Glide® model is matched only by its performance on the street, and the ultimate hot-rod bagger is back with four new colour options.
