2018 - 2022 Harley-Davidson Heritage Classic

Harley puts the bling back in the Heritage Classic

Harley-Davidson put a new emphasis on the Softail lineup with plenty of performance-driven custom designs for the fiery-eyed pegdraggers out there,

but for someone looking for an old-school cruiser and tour bike, the Heritage Classic is your Huckleberry.

After dropping the 107, a change for the 2022 model year brings two finishes for the Heritage Classic:

a Chrome finish and a Black finish, both available in either cast wheels or laced wheels.

Typical of the FL family, the Heritage features large-diameter, wide-set forks to lend beefiness to the look,

and this is compounded by the whisker-mount passing lamps and turn signals that ride ahead of the barn-door windscreen.

The screen itself is of the detachable sort for quick conversion depending on the weather, your mood, or whatever.

A pillion pad and flip-out footpegs are all the passenger gets,

so if you plan on carrying someone you like, perhaps a short passenger backrest from the accessories catalog is in order.

A set of black, top-load saddlebags completes the gear in the rear,

though the bags are cut down a bit to 1.5 cubic-feet of storage.

The 1,746 cc 107-inch Mil-8 engine cranks out a respectable 109 pound-feet of torque at a low 3,000 rpm, and that's plenty for low-stress cruising.

The 1,868 cc 114 cubic-inch version produces a 119 pound-foot output at three grand.

Not only do these engines give you ample power out of the hole, but they also have the strongest fifth- and sixth-gear roll-ons of any production Harley engine of their day,

so the top-end performance is definitely more thrilling, as well.

MSRP starts at $20.8k for Vivid Black in the Chrome finish and $21.7k for Vivid Black in the Black finish.
