Harley-Davidson 1745 SOFTAIL DELUXE FLDE 2019

The Deluxe is a bit of gluttony in the Softail range. A pleasure boat in the port of customs, taking full advantage of the nostalgic ode it conveys.
Now that the Fat Boy is somewhat wanton, the field is free to seduce all lovers of old-fashioned cruisers.. Its line remains timeless, with all the arguments to transport you to the middle of the century. Beautiful chrome everywhere, whitewall tires, spoked rims, mudguards the size of umbrellas, a smooth line and an engine that explodes with presence.

Precisely, this engine. This is one of the big recent evolutions of this Softail. Definitely turning the page on the Twin Cam, Harley installed the Milwaukee Eight in the Deluxe. More than a new block, the M8 takes Harley to a higher dimension. Each cylinder is entitled to 4 valves and 2 spark plugs, more room to express yourself, and unwanted idle vibrations are reduced to a minimum. The cubic capacity climbs to 1745 cm3, or 107 ci in the American language. Cleaner, more powerful, more torquey, pleasant to use as it should be for a MoCo machine, the M8 fits perfectly into the Deluxe.

A starter to shake the block and the road becomes a farandole of emotions. Harley did what it takes so that the driver no longer has to suffer but leads the dance on the handlebars. Because all Softails have seen their frame completely overhauled. A strong feedback of experiences and opinions, a big step of CAD, and a severe dose of technique lead to a lighter, more rigid and more efficient frame. Brought on the scale, this Deluxe has lost no less than 17 kilos compared to the old one.
Its depreciation is also completely revised. More rigorous, its rear suspension uses a new swingarm as well as a single shock absorber under the saddle instead of the two shocks under the frame – while preserving the Hardtail aspect. The double-acting valve fork comes from the Touring and looks much more efficient. Thus revised, the Deluxe should seriously gain in handling, stability and agility. The brand announces more important angles

The technical underwear has made a big leap forward. An increasingly formidable competition has led the manufacturer to give more ambition to its range. And yet from the outside, she seems insensitive to the ersatz fashion and progress. Really ? From an aspect that could not be more classic, the ramp of headlights has yet completely shifted into the 21st century. It looks like it was stung on the hood of a Plymouth Fury, the turn signal support bar is both vintage and modern. Nice move from the designers. The optics are shielded with LEDs, and the central unit splits with a striking circular light signature. A front end that reconciles the defenders of yesterday and the technophiles of today.

In the Softail range, the Deluxe will be the one that will capsize you the most in the classic. Its evolution is far-reaching, while its silhouette never ceases to charm. A huge piece of cream and flavor, which should be enjoyed without rushing.
