New FXSTC Softail Custom, Redesigned FLSTF Fat Boy, New Engine, Transmission and Active Intake and Exhaust
The Harley-Davidson Softail family of motorcycles exceeds its own high standards for custom design in 2007 by offering a wide range of innovation to its authentically styled product line.
Led by the new FXSTC Softail Custom model, Harley-Davidson Softail motorcycles offer the new Twin Cam 96B engine, 6-speed Cruise Drive transmission, Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI), 200mm-wide rear tyres on several models and a FLSTF Fat Boy model revised from top to bottom. The new engine and transmission combined with a new active intake and exhaust system, increases Softail displacement, power and torque for a strong and smooth ride, while significantly improving exhaust sound quality.
Another piece of headline-making news for all the new 2007 Harley-Davidson Softail models is the introduction of a highly sophisticated active air intake and exhaust technology system developed by Harley-Davidson for Europe*. This system significantly improves power, torque and sound quality whilst meeting European noise and emission regulations.
The Softail range has always presented truly original designs that in many ways epitomise Harley-Davidson custom styling. For 2007, the Softail family combines the performance and technology of a bigger and better engine, 6-speed transmission, electronic fuel injection, active intake and exhaust with distinctive styling elements to deliver an efficient and emotional ride. All Harley-Davidson models for the Europe, Middle East and Africa region feature an upgraded security system as standard. The new Harley-Davidson Smart Security System offers hands-free operation courtesy of a proximity sensor that detects the presence of the security fob.
The new FXSTC Softail Custom is comfortable and chromed out with stirring, laid-back style. The classic FLSTF Fat Boy gets pumped up with a bigger engine, wider tyres and fenders, thicker handlebars and other additions. A popular feature on certain Softail models last year, a 200mm-wide rear tyre now gives three Softail models a bold look for 2007. The 200mm rear rubber tyre is mounted on a polished aluminium disc rear wheel. These extra wide rear aspects appear on the FXSTC Softail Custom, the FXSTB Night Train and the FLSTF Fat Boy.
The Softail line is named after the innovative Harley-Davidson Softail chassis, originally launched in 1984. The Softail honours the look of the vintage "hardtail" frame, while offering a modern swingarm and suspension featuring hidden horizontal rear shock absorbers and springs. The result is a classic long and low profile, influenced both by Harley-Davidson Motor Company heritage and cutting edge design. Each Softail model is a premium custom motorcycle designed to be authentic and functional, while making a compelling statement.
All six models in the 2007 Softail line-up include the following features:
1584cc Twin Cam 96B engine, rigid-mounted in the frame as an integral element of the motorcycle, but balanced to minimise vibration.
New active air intake and exhaust technology system.
6-speed Cruise Drive transmission with helical gear design for more torque and lower cruising revs in top gear, as well as smoother shifting and reduced engine noise.
Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI) for clean operation and improved drivability.
Clutch lever effort reduced by 10 percent for easier operation and reduced fatigue.
Hollow front axles for more precise handling and tracking.
New speedometer with clock function, 6th gear indicator light and brighter LED lights.
Hands free security system.
