Harley-Davidson has introduced a series of updates for its 2016 model line-up. Among these, the Heritage Softail Classic gets a High Output Twin Cam 103 engine along with a few cosmetic updates. The Street 750 on the other hand, gets upgraded brakes to take care of the bike’s Achilles heel - braking.
The High Output Twin Cam 103 engine is also used in a number of Touring models. It displaces 1690cc, delivering 142Nm of torque through a six-speed gearbox. The Heritage Softail Classic is a traditional cruiser whose design harks back to the original rigid suspension choppers from the 1960s. The styling on the new model takes a stronger approach towards nostalgia, thanks to a series of cosmetic updates. The seat has been redesigned and incorporates different materials to improve comfort levels for the rider and pillion. Harley-Davidson has also added cruise control as a standard fitment.
The Street 750 has earned accolades for being a good budget motorcycle, but its inefficient braking left us wanting for more. Now, though, taking consumer feedback into consideration, Harley-Davidson has introduced better brakes for the motorcycle, which should solve this problem.
We can expect Harley-Davidson to announce the prices of this 2016 model line-up in the next few weeks.
