POSSIBILITY COMES STANDARD.

2020 Harley-Davidson Softail Standard:

Raw, stripped-down bobber style. A blank canvas for customization. This is more than a motorcycle. It’s an iron invitation to join the custom revolution.

The new Softail® Standard motorcycle offers the essential Harley-Davidson cruiser experience: A lean Bobber profile steeped in attitude, the dynamic performance of the Harley-Davidson Softail chassis, and the unrelenting power of the Milwaukee-Eight® V-Twin powertrain. Featuring classic Vivid Black paint and highlighted with gleaming chrome and polished finishes, the Softail Standard model is a Harley-Davidson motorcycle presented in it’s most elemental form.

Featuring classic Vivid Black paint and highlighted with gleaming chrome and polished finishes, the Softail Standard model is a Harley-Davidson motorcycle presented in its most elemental form.

The contrast of black and bright components gives the Softail Standard motorcycle a look that’s both classic and minimalist. Offered only with Vivid Black painted sheet metal, the Softail Standard model is equipped with a solo seat that exposes the chopped rear fender, and a smooth, 3.5-gallon fuel tank that reveals the frame and engine. The powertrain is styled to draw attention to the center of the motorcycle, with an all-black Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine highlighted with polished rocker, primary and timer covers. Cylinder head fins are not highlighted. A center-bolt, round air cleaner cover further exposes the engine. With chrome shields and mufflers the 2-into-2 offset shotgun exhaust enhances the long, low profile of the Softail Standard model.

The steel rims of the classic laced wheels (front 19-inch, rear 16-inch) are finished in brilliant chrome for dazzling style. The front end features clear-coated fork sliders, polished triple-clamps, polished top clamp and riser, and chromed headlamp bezel and turn signals for additional contrast to the Vivid Black paint. The mini-ape handlebar puts riders of the Softail Standard model in a fists-in-the-wind posture with instant attitude. A compact electronic instrument with digital display set in the handlebar riser keeps the front end clean and uncluttered.

 

THIS IS THE RIGHT BIKE FOR:

City cruising or light touring with a low-slung stance
MIlwaukee-Eight® 107 V-Twin engine and easy-reach bars

NEW HARLEY-DAVIDSON® SOFTAIL® STANDARD UNLOCKS THE ESSENTIAL CRUISER EXPERIENCE

Milwaukee-Eight® V-Twin Performance and Lean Bobber Style Ready For Customization

MILWAUKEE (February 24, 2020) – The new Harley-Davidson® Softail® Standard motorcycle offers the essential Harley-Davidson cruiser experience: a lean bobber profile steeped in attitude, the dynamic performance of the Harley-Davidson Softail chassis, and the unrelenting power of the Milwaukee-Eight® V-Twin powertrain. Featuring classic Vivid Black paint and highlighted with gleaming chrome and polished finishes, the Softail Standard model is a Harley-Davidson motorcycle presented in its most elemental form.

The contrast of black and bright components gives the Softail Standard motorcycle a look that’s both classic and minimalist.

The Solid Softail Foundation

The Harley-Davidson Softail chassis give the Softail Standard model a solid foundation. The steel frame is optimized for stiffness and light weight. A rigid-mounted powertrain further enhances chassis stiffness. The Softail swingarm is designed to be stiff for dynamic handling and creates the look of a classic hardtail frame. Mono-shock rear suspension places a coil-over shock with emulsion technology out of sight and under the seat. Suspension pre-load adjustment is accomplished by simply removing the seat to gain access to the shock body, making it easy to dial in the ride and handling for rider weight. Dual bending valve front suspension responds quickly to inputs for enhanced braking and handling performance. Front and rear disc brakes offer confident stopping power. Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) is optional on the Softail Standard model.

Milwaukee-Eight Power

The Milwaukee-Eight 107 V-Twin engine delivers inspiring performance and the look, sound and feel that is classic Harley-Davidson. Dual counter-balancers reduce primary vibration at idle for improved rider comfort. Four valve cylinder heads provide ample airflow while advanced cylinder head design, dual knock sensors, and precision cooling allow a 10.0:1 compression ratio for strong torque output and acceleration. For the rider focused on performance this engine accepts select Harley-Davidson® Screamin’ Eagle® Stage Upgrade kits.
