Harley-Davidson just pulled the wraps of some of the 2021 model line up

The first instalment of 2021 Harley-Davidson model range has just gone live – here are the bikes, specs and details


AMERICA’S most famous motorcycle manufacturer has just rolled out an array of new metal for 2021, with the halo products from the Harley-Davidson CVO range getting a fair amount of airtime.

But don’t just think that tonight's reveal was solely about the heavy-weight baggers and tourers, ‘smaller’ bikes in the range, like the Street Bob have also been given a going over for 2021.

Harley-Davidson isn’t done yet though, there is another launch planned for next month when the eagerly-awaited Pan America makes its official bow.

For now though, here’s what we know about the 2021 H-D offerings…

2021 Harley-Davidson models announced so far

As you’d expect, the flagship CVO range of Milwaukee metal is very much here to stay, the emphasis, as ever, is on the best of the best that H-D can offer. On that note, the team has focussed on not just the bigger picture, but also the smaller details that might take an owner hour, a week, or even a month to find.

For 2021, the bagger and heavy-weight tourers of the CVO range gain a host of new colours, and some of the trickest wheels this side of the MotoGP paddock. Harley and innovation might not have been bedfellows before, but 2021 might actually change that!

The new hoops are stunning things to look at and feature cast rims and cross-laced spokes. There is no word from Harley on the weight-saving gained, although, on looks alone, they look like a winner.

The big ‘Glide also benefits from a TPS system, new paint schemes, and a booming new Rockford Fosgate Stage II sound system.

The CVO Street Glide takes all the updates of the bike above and turns them up to eleven, with added comfort. It features improved ergonomics, weather protection, and a softer seat allowing for longer days in the saddle.

It also comes decked out in a couple of new colour schemes – a two-tone option and bronze option as seen above.

Each of the four updated CVO models for 2021 – including the CVO Tri Glide – also gain RDRS Safety Enhancements (formerly known as RDRS). This technology is designed to enhance rider confidence during unexpected situations or poor road conditions. Elements of RDRS Safety Enhancements include Cornering Enhanced Electronic Linked Braking, Cornering Enhanced Antilock Braking System, Cornering Enhanced Traction Control System, Drag-Torque Slip Control System, Vehicle Hold Control, and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System.

Street Bob 114: Eight Harley-Davidson Softail models offer a pure riding experience, combining modern power and technology with authentic American styling. The new Street Bob 114 model adds stripped-down bobber styling and no-nonsense performance to the cruiser line. The lightest-weight Softail model equipped with a powerful Milwaukee-Eight 114 engine, the Street Bob 114 is a quick-and-nimble ride with power to spare. It’s loaded with authentic attitude, from its mini-ape handlebar to the chopped rear fender.

Fat Boy: With its steamroller stance the Fat Boy model remains one of the most physically imposing motorcycles in the Harley-Davidson portfolio. Refreshed styling for 2021 brightens its look as brilliant chrome replaces the satin chrome finish on the powertrain and exhaust, the front end, the rear fender struts, and the console.
