Just last weekend, all of the Philippines’ Harley-Davidson dealerships banded together for the 2021 Model Year Open House and virtual event. Organized to launch Harley-Davidson’s new Softail models, the virtual launch featured live videos from all of Harley-Davidson’s dealers: Harley-Davidson of Manila (Greenhills and BGC), Cavite, Cebu and Davao.
Unveiled at the event were the 2021 Low Rider S, Street Bob 114, and Softail Standard. These new cruisers get much needed updates and improvements for the model year.
Street Bob 114 (FXBBS)
Headlining the new models is the new Street Bob 114. Part of the Softail line, the Street Bob offers stripped-down style and performance to the line. It is the lightest Softail model, fitted with a 114 cubic inch (1,868cc) engine.
Harley has fitted it with a mini-ape handlebar to the chopped rear fender. It also gets a new digital riser gauge to keep the front end clean and uncluttered.
The 2021 Street Bob 114 starts at PhP1,100,000. Prices may vary depending on the accessories fitted.
Low Rider S (FXLRS)
Positioned as a blacked-out performance-cruiser with aggressive style, the Low Rider S offers pure sound with a soul-satisfying rumble. It’s powered by the Milwaukee-Eight 114 (1,868cc) engine with enough torque for blasting off from stoplights, accelerating to highway speeds, and overtaking slower vehicles.
The Low Rider S comes with blacked-out finishes, moto-style bars with 4-inch risers, and a mini speed screen. The defining element of the tall-bike style is the 1-inch diameter motocross-style handlebar, mounted on 4-inch risers to offer a more aggressive riding position.
The 2021 Low Rider S starts at PhP1,200,000. Prices may vary depending on accessories fitted.
Softail Standard (FXST)
The last is the Softail Standard which offered the most distilled Harley-Davidson cruiser experience. The Softail Standard has a lean Bobber profile steeped in attitude.
It combines the dynamic performance of the Harley-Davidson Softail chassis with power of the Milwaukee-Eight 107 V-Twin (1,746cc) powertrain. The Softail Standard is offered in classic Vivid Black paint and highlighted with gleaming chrome and polished finishes.
The 2021 Softail Standard is priced at PhP1,000,000.
All three models are now available from Harley-Davidson of Manila (Greenhills and BGC), Cavite, Cebu, and Davao.
