More power for 2016 – that’s Harley Davidson’s message for the next model year. ItS all about bigger engines, upgraded powertrains, more power, more torque. Bigger engines will go into the company’s Fat Boy, Slim and Softail models. The Softail models also get an upgrade to the High Output Twin Cam 103 engines, previously available only in Harley’s larger touring bikes, as will all the Dyna models except the Street Bob. Other new bikes on the lineup include the Forty-Eight motorcycle, the Iron 883 bike and the 2016 CVO Limited model.
2016 Fat Boy S and Softail Slim S
The Screamin’ Eagle performance once reserved for CVO models is now available in regular-production motorcycles for the first time ever. The limited-edition Fat Boy S and Softail Slim S models feature the Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 110, an engine tuned to make up to 109 lb.- ft. of torque. Visually, both bikes were slightly redesigned and both feature electronic cruise control, ABS, and H-D Factory Security System as standard equipment.
2016 Softail and Dyna
Harley-Davidson gives cruiser riders a dose of Project RUSHMORE performance by making the High Output Twin Cam 103 engine standard in every 2016 Softail model (except the Softail Slim S and Fat Boy S). Tuned to deliver strong acceleration and passing power, the HO 103 engine is equipped with a high-flow airbox and camshaft that optimizes bottom-end torque. The result is an improvement in performance a rider will feel every day.
In 2016 the High Output Twin Cam 103 engine is also standard equipment in all Dyna model motorcycles except the Street Bob model.
2016 Road Glide Ultra
The all-new Road Glide Ultra features new styling, better aerodynamics, and improved long-distance ergonomics for rider and passenger. The bike is powered by the Twin-Cooled High Output Twin Cam 103.
Iron 883 and Forty-Eight
The 2016 Sportsters are equipped with new front and rear suspension, plus a more comfortable seat. According to Harley, the changes on the suspension help the new 2016 Sportster resist wheel hop under hard braking.
2016 Street 500 and Street 750
In response to customer feedback, these two models have been upgraded with improved brakes, developed in conjunction with Brembo, said to offer more of a confidence-inspiring feel.
2016 Heritage Softail Classic
In addition to its new High Output Twin Cam 103 powertrain and new electronic cruise control, the Heritage Softail receives refreshed styling for 2016. The leather saddlebags feature new conchos with red starburst inserts that match highlights in the seat skirt and tank badge. The Heritage Softail Classic retains its other popular features, including a passenger backrest, a full-coverage removable windshield with quick-release mounts, a deep FL-style front fender and chrome laced wheels with covered hubs. ABS is standard equipment.
The 2016 Heritage Softail Classic is available in the following colors: Solid Vivid Black, Superior Blue, Billet Silver and Olive Gold; Two-tone Crushed Ice Pearl/Frosted Teal Pearl and Amber Whiskey/Vivid Black; Custom Color Purple Fire/Blackberry Smoke and Cosmic Blue Pearl.
