Every Harley-Davidson is known for providing riders with a pleasant ride in a variety of riding situations. The new Softail Slim is equipped with a high output Twin Cam 103B engine that produces 102 lb-ft of torque at 3,000 rpm. The punchy motor, engineered for low-end grunt, is connected to a 6-speed Cruise Drive transmission. With the Softail Slim's smooth transmission and powerful yet efficient motor, you can expect to see an estimated 42 miles per gallon in combined city/highway riding. There is a lot to love about this Harley's air-cooled, 45-degree V-Twin engine; from its lightweight piston design that provides smooth delivery of the added power, to strong internal components that mean less routine maintenance, the Twin Cam 103B engine is a winner in any book.
If you fall in love with that classic bobber style over and over again, then you are sure to fall in love with the Harley-Davidson Softail Slim. From its unique retro-inspired "Hollywood" handlebars to its "Cat Eye" console with vintage-look gauges, this bike oozes classic, timeless style. With the Softail Slim's hidden rear shocks, you get the best of both worlds: that rigid suspension look, with the smooth ride of a softail. Around the back of the bike, you will notice the chopped rear fender and side-mounted license plate only add to this motorcycle's no-nonsense, bobber look that modern riders still desire. Other styling features on the Softail Slim include integrated stop/turn/tail lights, and a stylish round air cleaner cover.
While Harley Davidson motorcycles certainly have plenty of style, they also are surprisingly comfortable. Handling prowess also continues to improve with every new advancement or update across Harley's lineup of modern bikes. With its low solo seat, you will feel one with your Softail Slim; the seat is also plenty comfy for long rides along the open road. Below your feet, you will find half moon foot boards, which provide additional comfort and confidence compared to foot pegs. While these foot board features a vintage look, they feel as modern as ever. When it comes to handling the twisties, the 2017 Softail Slim has got its riders covered with sporty Dunlop tires, an upgraded front brake system, and a handlebar that encourages confidence in the corners. This bike handles like a dream, even in low-speed maneuvering. The front brake system offers a 40 percent reduction in the brake lever force required at peak braking, to engage the premium caliper and brake pads to the larger, 300 mm front brake rotor.
