All About the 2020 Harley-Davidson Heritage Classic
The Harley-Davidson Heritage Classic hits all the marks for long-distance touring. It has the performance riders want, along with the comfort, and the practicality. The 2020 model has some significant changes, including a newly available color scheme, new reflective parts, and restyled components in addition to the classic blacked-out version.
The 2020 Heritage Classic has some big changes for the new model year, but it retains the Softail line. Color options include Vivid Black, Tahitian Teal, Billiard Burgundy, Silver Pine/Spruce, and Billiard Red with Vivid Black. The 114 Milwaukee-Eight model also offers a scorched orange/silver flux paint option that comes with a blacked-out finish.
New for 2020, The Heritage Classic comes in two different finishes. The new-look includes a bright powertrain with chrome covers and a chrome air cleaner, a chrome headlamp bucket, and chrome steel-laced wheels. It also has chrome on the auxiliary light buckets and chrome fork covers along with bright fork legs. This finish will also have chrome on the console, the rear fender struts, and the side covers along with the riser and top clamp. The other option is the classic blacked-out finish that riders are used to seeing.
Stand Out Features
The Heritage Cruiser makes it easy to go from touring to cruising with the removable windscreen. The full clear screen makes it easy to see when riding down the highway, but it comes off in just seconds for a different look and riding experience. The lockable and sealed saddlebags provide plenty of storage space for your essentials, and the lids open with just a single touch. Riders sit on a two-piece skirted seat with a deep scoop, while the passenger gets a pillion pad and flip-out footpegs.
The Power and Performance
The power for the Heritage Classic comes from a Milwaukee-Eight 107 with 109 pound-feet of torque for the chrome finish, while the 114 engine makes a return for the classic model with the blacked-out finish. The new Milwaukee-Eight is smoother than the previous drive trains with precise throttle control and a return spring that doesn’t make your hand tired no matter how long you ride. It comes with a five-gallon fuel tank and will get up to 47 miles per gallon, which means you can go up to 200 miles between fill-ups.
Upfront, the high-performance suspension provides a smooth ride, and it will soak up bumps and ruts in the road no matter what type of surface you ride over. In the back, the rear mono-shock easily adjusts to accommodate any road surface and makes it handle corners with ease.
The 114 comes with signature LED forward lighting that gives the driver excellent visibility at night. It also comes with ABS brakes, engine diagnostics, and indicators for low battery voltage, and low fuel.
Whether you choose the new look for the 2020 Heritage Classic with lots of chrome and reflective parts or the classic blacked-out finish, this touring bike will stand out.
