Refreshed FLSTC Heritage Softail Classic

Rolling on new signature wide whitewall tyres, the Heritage Softail Classic receives a number of other more-subtle styling changes and new components that shift this popular model in a new, even more retro direction for 2009. The beefy FL front end features a front fender and chrome headlight nacelle with clean new styling cues, while taller handlebars change the rider’s profile. The fuel tank has new glass-filled, 3-D badges and is topped with a classic “cat’s eye” console. Half-moon rider footboards and a large, oval foot brake pad also nod to the past. The passenger seat and backrest have been revised for more comfort, while the rider seat has new trim that matches a leather console panel, revised saddle bag trim, and new sissy bar trim. The passenger seat and backrest and the king-size windshield can be quickly detached for more streamlined cruising.
