The 2018 Harley-Davidson Street Bob is now a lighter, more modern take on the classic ape-hanger, small-tank cruiser shape. The 2018 Harley-Davidson Street Bob is powered by the new Milwaukee Eight 107 1,745cc V-twin engine, which along with the larger 114 engine will power the entire lineup of the 2018 Harley-Davidson Softail family motorcycles. The Harley-Davidson Street Bob will be a part of the 2018 Softail family, as the Dyna family has been merged into it. This means that the Harley-Davidson Street Bob will be the least priced motorcycle in the new family, with an expected price of around Rs 12 lakh. This is just as well since the Street Bob is a bare offering which can be customised to the owner’s specification. However, the 2018 Street Bob is one good-looking cruiser and it would be difficult to see what it requires to be made better.
Here’s a look:
The 2018 Harley-Davidson Street Bob retains the classic cruiser look with its small headlamp, small tank, and tall mini-ape handlebars. The lower half of the motorcycle is all blacked-out
The all-new lighter, stiffer mild steel tubular frame that the Harley-Davidson Street Bob inherits from the Softail family gives it a cleaner look with the rear monoshock concealed. The 2018 model’s kerb weight is 7kg lighter at 286kg
The 2018 Street Bob features laced wire-spoke wheels with the front being a 19-incher, and the rear, 16 inches. ABS comes standard on the motorcycle
Digital instrumentation on the Harley-Davidson Street Bob now sits atop top the handlebar clamp to give you an unobstructed view of the road ahead
The new LED headlamp design features a ring surround which acts as DRL on the 2018 Harley-Davidson Street Bob
