Harley-Davidson® Heritage Classic
Harley-Davidson® markets the Heritage Classic as the quintessential American cruiser, and that slogan captures in a nutshell why it continues to be one of our best-selling models. Many motorcycles are made with a particular purpose in mind, but may riders want a bike that can do it all, and that is the case with the new Heritage Classic. It is built on the Softail platform, which means its versatile. It’s comfortable and responsive whether riding around town, riding long distances or pushing it to the limits through your local twisties. It’s also not a half measure as a tourer. It has a detachable windshield that you can attach with ease as needed. It also has saddlebags in addition to a passenger seat for two-up riding.
What’s New for 2023
Not much has changed with the 2023 Harley-Davidson® Heritage Classic in Tampa, and that doesn’t come as much of a surprise considering the popularity and critical acclaim. Harley-Davidson® has made tweaks here and there for convenience and performance. It has made some big changes to the color options, which we’ll explore in the next section, and it has added even more customization options for the Heritage Classic to the Harley-Davidson® catalog.
Color & Design Choices
Tampa Bay Harley-Davidson® gives you two fundamental design options for the 2023 Harley-Davidson® Heritage Classic: a traditional chrome aesthetic and a modern blacked-out aesthetic. Available colors depend on that choice. Vivid Black is the standard option in either case. A two-tone color scheme—Bright Billiard Blue with Billiard Gray—is available as a premium option with either black or chrome. The chrome aesthetic also gives you the option of Atlas Silver Metallic as a premium option, and the black aesthetic offers Prospect Gold and Heirloom Red Fade as premium options. The colors that were retired for this model year include Midnight Crimson, Reef Blue with Vivid Black, Redline Red with Vivid Black and White Sand Pearl.
Performance & Characteristics
All Heritage Classic models available at Tampa Bay Harley-Davidson® are powered by the Milwaukee-Eight® 114 engine. The 114 delivers ample acceleration and power for most riders, but those who want more also have the option of the Screamin’ Eagle upgrade. Notable ride characteristics include a detachable windshield, upright rider positioning, a passenger seat, floorboards and saddlebags.
This Is the Right Bike For
The Harley-Davidson® Heritage Classic is an ideal choice for the rider who wants to do it all. You can ride around town with it. Use it as a commuter, and take it on weekend trips across state lines. If you’re unsure whether you want to go with a full tourer, then compare it to the fairingless Road King or some of the models with a full fairing, such as the Street Glide or Road Glide.
Other Customization Options
As popular as the Heritage Classic is, it should come as no surprise that there are many products in the H-D® catalog through which you can personalize it. That includes various seats, handlebars, grips, windshields, foot controls, saddle bags, touring packs and much more. If you need assistance exploring those customization options, feel free to call us or reach out to us via email.
