A Quick Look at the Top 4 Harley Davidsons of All Time

If you have to take one name in the world of motorcycles that almost every enthusiast is familiar with, it is Harley Davidson. The motorcycle brand survived the Great Depression, and has been offering enthusiasts with a range of high-performance motorcycles for almost a century. From the latest Harley 1200 Custom to the Road King, pick any Harley Davidson package, and it won’t disappoint you. Be it a used vehicles auction or salvage auction, you will find wrecked Harley Davidson motorcycles for sale every where, and many enthusiasts bidding to own their favorite make. If buying a Harley is on your list, we recommend the four of the best machines of all time to consider for your next big investment.

Harley Davidson

1. 2006 VRSCSE2

If you are looking for a cruiser that scores great on both performance and the overall package, your search ends at the VRSCSE2 or V-Twin Racing Street Custom. Originally introduced as the V-Rod, this motorcycle shares the same engine found on the VR-1000 Superbike. Harley enthusiasts revere the muscle bike for its stellar handling.

2. 2008 Harley-Davidson Softail Cross Bones

The Harley Softail Crossbones is one of the coolest and the most comfortable cruisers, thanks to its wide leather seat, and rubber-topped footboards. The motorcycle boasts a gargantuan 1584cc V-twin engine, that is heavier than what you find in most other cruisers. The Cross Bones offers 75 bhp and a top speed of 90mph.

3. 2009 FXSTB Night Train

Harley launched the 2009 FXSTB Night Train, like the VRSCSE2, in a variety of shades with the only difference being that all the options were shades of black. To make the motorcycle more powerful than its predecessors, Harley installed a twin-cam 96B engine with a displacement of 1584cc. The FXSTB Night Train boasts a distinctive style, with its long FX front end and narrow 21-inch laced front wheel, the reason why it receives a lot of attention at salvage motorcycle auctions.

4. 2012 FLHR Road King

Harley Davidson launched the FLHR Road King to take performance and customization to the next level; no wonder they chose the name. Powered by a Twin Cam 103 1690cc engine, and paired to a six-speed cruise drive transmission, the Road King offers a number of interesting features that separate it from the rest of the Harleys and other competitors including electronic cruise control and ABS braking system.


A Harley Davidson offers the best in performance and styling in comparison to packages in its class. The motorcycles listed above are just a few examples. You have several other options such as the Dyna Wide Glide and VRSC V-Rod, which you just can’t get enough of. When it comes to owning these high-performance motorcycles, money can be a deterring factor. If that is the case, take advantage of salvage motorcycle auctions where you can find wrecked Harley Davidson motorcycles for sale at low prices.
