2021 Harley-Davidson Street Bob 114 First Look Preview
Harley-Davidson is giving more punch to its Street Bob cruiser in 2021, swapping out the old 107 V-twin and replacing it with the 114.
Harley-Davidson’s Softail line has been popular with cruiser riders for nearly 40 years and it continues into 2021 with some choice upgrades to a number of its models, including the Street Bob. The big news for the Street Bob is its power bump, which comes by way of a new Milwaukee-Eight 114 V-twin (1,868cc).
Up until now the Street Bob, one of the lighter-weight Softail models, has used a Milwaukee-Eight 107 engine. Now riders can enjoy 119 pound-feet of torque at 3,000 rpm and much more pull throughout the rev range than before thanks to the 114. It gets new engine badging so other riders know exactly what you’re packing.
The new mill is housed in the traditional Softail chassis, complete with an underseat rear monoshock and dual bending valve fork. The chopped fenders, black steel-laced wheels, mini-ape handlebars, and blacked-out engine remain standard-issue features.
The 2021 Street Bob 114 will also come with a passenger seat and passenger footpegs standard, a break from previous years when the base model was set up for solo travel only.
It comes with an LCD instrument panel inset in the handlebar riser, USB charging port, LED headlight, keyless ignition, and a security system. You can get it with or without ABS and in a variety of colorways including Vivid Black, Stone Washed White Pearl, Baja Orange, and Deadwood Green.
The starting MSRP in Vivid Black is $14,999. For colors, you’ll spend $15,399, and if you’d like to add ABS, you’ll need to tack on an additional $795 to the starting MSRP.
