2018 Harley-Davidson Deluxe Buyer’s Guide | Specs & Price

2018 Harley-Davidson Deluxe

Of all the Harley-Davidson motorcycles, the Deluxe is the stateliest. With deep-valanced fenders, whitewall tires, wire-spoke wheels, triple LED headlights, LED tombstone brake light, floorboards, and plenty of chrome, the 2018 Harley-Davidson Deluxe is as classy as it gets.

The great news for the latest Deluxe is that it gets the all-new Softail chassis that is stiffer for much-improved handling.

2018 Harley-Davidson Deluxe Buyer's Guide PriceFurther improving the ride, the 2018 Harley-Davidson Deluxe features new suspension, including the Showa Dual Bending Valve fork.

If that’s not enough, the Deluxe is powered by the new Milwaukee-Eight 107 powerplant that puts out an aggressive 109 ft/lbs of torque at 3000 rpm. That means power is always on tap, whether you are barging your way through town, doing battle in urban freeway traffic, or on an enticing rural road.

While the Deluxe has always been about styling, the 2018 Harley-Davidson Deluxe is now about performance and handling, without losing a bit of its great looks.
