2017 Harley-Davidson Softail Classic Buyer's Guide

Harley-Davidson has an outstanding Touring line of motorcycles, with all the accoutrements you would ever want or need. However, if you are looking for a back-to-basics touring bike with classic styling, the 2017 Harley-Davidson Heritage Softail Classic stands at the ready.

Refreshed last year, the most important changes are two new two-tone color schemes. Still, you get lots of leather with conchos on the seat and saddlebags, a sissybar for the passenger, a quick-detach windshield, triple headlights, tall and wide bars, whitewall tires, and cruise control.

The High Output Twin Cam 103B is fully capable of taking the rider and passenger from coast-to-coast in high style.
