The Harley-Davidson Motor Co. Unveils A Quicker Cruiser With Its Street Bob 114

Released alongside a handful of new models as the first step in Harley-Davidson’s “Hardwire” plan, the 2021 Street Bob 114 is a new motorcycle from the Black and Orange, replacing the 107ci Street Bob and gaining the MoCo’s Milwaukee Eight 114 engine–the most potent powertrain offered in Harley’s Softail lineup.

Despite tipping the scales at a bit more than its 107ci predecessor, the 114’s increased displacement results in quicker acceleration off the line, a 9% shorter 0-60mph time, and 13% faster acceleration from 60-80mph. Offered in four custom-inspired livery options, the Street Bob 114 is outfitted with a 3.5-gallon, streamlined take on a classic teardrop tank, H-D’s signature LED headlight, a two-into-two offset shotgun exhaust setup, gaitered fork tubes, a set of risers with integrated instrumentation holding a pair of ape handlebars, a keyless ignition system, mid-mount foot controls, black laced wheels, and a beefy fender now sporting a passenger pillion. Putting down 119ft-lbs of torque from as early as 3,000rpm, the Street Bob’s blacked-out 114ci (1,868cc) V-Twin engine is juxtaposed via polished cooling fins and chrome pushrod tubes. Concealing a mono-shock, the new cruiser bike weighs 659lbs at the curb and offers 28.5-degrees of lean angle in either direction. Available now, the 2021 Harley-Davidson Street Bob 114 starts at $14,999.
