The Harley-Davidson ®Softail® models are a versatile option for different types of travel. Whatever you want from your motorcycle lifestyle, you'll find it with a Harley model!

The Size of the Bike

Harley® motorcycles are notoriously big. Their frames run large - partly to store all the technology needed to power their performance. They are also outfitted with accessories to help them stand out on the open road. Among the models, you can still find a variety of sizes.

If you are new to motorcycle riding, you'll want to look at lighter models. Heavy motorcycles can be difficult for newbies to control, from turning them to lane change to staying upright at a stoplight.

If you are more experienced, you'll benefit from a heavier model. The extra weight improves your stability, which makes it easier to take tighter turns and travel at faster speeds.
