Lind are delighted to announce the latest 2018 motorcycle line-up from Harley-Davidson. To summarise, the Milwaukee-Eight engine have been introduced to the big-twin range formerly known as Softail and Dyna. The Softail and Dyna ranges have been eliminated from the model family and have been replaced with an all-new platform built from the ground up, which will be called 'Softail'. May of the popular Dyna models will now join the new 'Softail Family'.
The Softail range has never looked so good and now benefits from improved power, handling and styling on all models, including the new introductions. Next year also marks the 115th Anniversary of Harley-Davidson and to celebrate there will be limited edition CVO Limited (anniversary model) and limited edition paint work available on just a few selected models for this time. There are also exciting updates to the clothing selection, parts and much more!
