This morning at the Progressive International Motorcycle Show – the largest indoor consumer motorcycle show in the U.S – Harley-Davidson is unveiling the Blackline, a new Harley-Davidson Dark Softail model.
The Motor Factory describes it as lean, bared to the bone, with visual elements of the original bobber movement combined with the raw, hand-hewn style embraced by today’s young builders.
Bobbed rear fender over a slim 144 mm tire to emphasize a hartail look, black trimmings to go with the Dark Theme. Compact headlight and speedometer are tucked low into the wide FX front end. Lowest two-up seat ever offered by Harley with the new Split Drag™ handlebar that bolts right to the top triple-clamp.
Rugged, aggressive and tailored for the young bikers with a price set accordingly. USA suggested MSRP is $15,499. (54 miles highway. 35 miles city). The Softail Blackline is being shipped today January 21 to continental U.S. dealers.
