The 2021 Harley-Davidson Street Bob 114 is the latest addition to the 2021 H-D Softail line-up that combines modern firepower together with the classic American cruiser styling that’s considered iconic to many folks around the globe. For the new Street Bob, the biggest upgrade has to be its Milwaukee-Eight® 114 engine that bumps to capacity from 1,753cc to 1,868cc.
This bigger capacity v-twin engine now offers 92hp and 161Nm of torque, which H-D has stated to be 9% quicker from 0-100km/h and 13% faster from 100km/h-130km/h compared to the previous Street Bob 107. You’ll also get to enjoy this with your pillion as the 2021 Street Bob 114 comes with a pillion seat and footpegs (unlike the previous model).
Other features include stripped-down styling (bobber style + mini-ape handlebars), 13.2-litre fuel tank, rear underseat monoshock with preload-adjustability, dual-bending valve front suspension, digital instrumentation inset, keyless ignition, and exclusive paint schemes (Vivid Black, Stone Washed White Pearl, Baja Orange, and Deadwood Green).
H-D has also updated the Harley-Davidson Fat Boy for 2021, but the changes are fairly minor compared to the Street Bob 114. For 2021, the Fat Boy 114 comes with the same Milwaukee-Eight® 114 engine, new ‘bright chrome’ parts, and an LED lighting system.
There are five additional models in the 2021 Softail range which include the Softail Standard, Low Rider S, Sport Glide, Fat Bob 114, and Heritage Classic 114. Understandably, the Low Rider, Deluxe and FXDR have received been axed from the list.
