The engine

The Milwaukee-Eight 107 V-twin has 1,746cc. The advanced cylinder head design, dual knock sensors, and precision cooling offer a 10.0:1 compression ratio which helps the engine to deliver 149 Nm of torque and improve acceleration.

To reduce vibration, Harley-Davidson fitted the motorcycle with dual counter-balancers. Other upgrades include the four-valve cylinder heads which provide the sufficient airflow for the engine.

Also, the engine was optimized to receive Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle Stage Upgrade kits.

The Softail Standard frame 

Harley-Davidson updated the steel frame which now is lighter and stiffer thanks to the rigid-mounted powertrain. Also, the Softail swingarm was designed to increase the stiffness level to improve the handling of the Softail Standard motorcycles.

On the rear, the Softail Standard models are fitted with mono-shock which has a coil-over shock placed under the seat.

The suspension has pre-load adjustment and the rider can change the setup by removing the seat. The ABS is optional on the Softail Standard motorcycles.
