This is the machine that marked the return of the Softail® to its roots - a bare-bones iron horse designed with the purist in mind. Re-creating every detail of the ultimate touring bike, this model is packed with authentic working features that include functional front and rear suspension, adjustable gear shift lever, kickstand and rotating drive belt. So lifelike, you can almost hear the roar of the mighty TC88B® engine - it's the definitive re-creation of the Great Freedom Machine.
For nearly a quarter-century, the Harley-Davidson® Heritage Softail® has been the dominating force in the touring bike field. It's no accident. With each year, with each new model, Harley® continues to add those refinements designed to keep the Softail® on the inside track of style and performance.
Since its re-introduction in 2006, the Heritage Softail® has maintained the reputation for ease in handling, reliability and the smooth suspension that inspires its name. The model year 2006 will be a welcome sight for the Harley-Davidson® faithfuls. In fact, the 2006 Heritage Softail® is the definitive study in nostalgia, presenting a classic appearance.
In addition to the elemental styling, the 2006 Heritage Softail® hosts performance options designed for the devoted Harley-Davidson® rider. Starting with the legendary Twin Cam 88B™ engine. Add the quick-change seat for solo or two-up riding and the traditional steel-laced wheels, and Harley-Davidson® has put another solid link in the long line of Softail® motorcycles.
