2011 Harley Softail Classic | Quick Look

2011 Harley-Davidson Motorcycle

You won’t find the Heritage Softail Classic in the Harley-Davidson Touring lineup, but that doesn’t stop it from being a fine bagger.

The Softail machine appeals to riders who like the vintage appeal of the 1940s-style leather saddlebags, full-size front fender, laced 16-inch wheels, and chrome front hub cover.

New for 2011 are fewer wires around the hand controls, an odometer trip switch (perfect for touring), a larger odometer readout with gear and rpm display, plus a single button to activate the hazard lights. Rigid-mounted, the 96 cubic inch motor is balanced.
