The 2018 Harley-Davidson Softail Heritage Classic really stood out of The Motor Company's lineup to our editors who attended the launch of the new models. It has a more youthful design compared to its predecessor. It also is one of the best to ride as well, according to multiple testers from our and our sister brands. The Heritage Classic might be nice but it is still a Harley—and that means customization! We put together a list of some parts that will improve the new Softail even more!
