2016 Harley-Davidson Line-Up

Harley-Davidson’s 2016 line-up is impressive, to say the least: two new special Softail models with powerful engines, two new Dark Custom Sportsters and the migthy return of the Road Glide Ultra spearhead that will surely make you squirm in your chair.

After paying attention to its customers, the uber popular Road Glide series has returned to life, in the form of the 2016 Road Glide Ultra. Upgrades from Harley’s 2016 line include the likes of stronger brakes on the entry level Street series, as well as higher spec suspension for the new Sportsters. Furthermore, two new limited edition models are now part of the line-up – the Fat Boy S and the Softail Slim S.

Both these bikes feature the Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 110 engine, while electronic throttle and cruise control will come as standard equipment. Please note that the Fat Boy S will be available in an all-black color scheme, while the Softail Slim S will come in a gorgeous olive gold look. No word on pricing, just yet.

The Road Glide Ultra is powered by an impressive Twin-Cooled High Output Twin Cam 103 engine, while also showing off ABS technology, cruise control, radio and a even security system as standard. Getting your hands on this bike will cost you $25,699 to $26,999 in the US, depending on its color.

On the other hand, the 2016 Forty-Eight comes with a fresh Dark Custom styling and a couple of technical improvements as well. Worth mentioning are the new front forks with cartridge technology, triple-rate progressive springs, alongside new triple clamps and a fork brace. The new Forty-Eight will also come with new cast alluminum wheels and a newly designed seat, being available in the US for a price ranging from $11,199 to $11,649.

Last, but not least, the new Iron 883 motorcycle is similar to the Forty-Eight. The bobber has received a new front cartridge fork and two rear emulsion shocks with adjustable preload and it’s been equipped with several blacked-out elements, which include the belt guard, front fender, brake rotor, air cleaner cover and both exhaust mufflers. It’s going to set you back $8,849 – $9,299, depending on extras.
