In testing the new Harley-Davidson Softail Slim, you can discover the timeless classic look of a hardtail streetbike with the comfort, handing and pure rideability of a truly modern “motorcy”. The latest addition to the Softail family is a true bobber, pure and simple.

With raw finishes and real custom cues inspired by the legendary custom bike movement of the 1940’s, it has an undeniable style that it lives up to in substance. At first glance the spirit of the post WWII bobbers is clear; wide ‘Hollywood’ bars, painted steel rims, retro half moon footboards, a narrow 144mm profile rear tyre with a chopped fender and gloss black ‘Cats Eye’ consol with a retro speedometer face.

Climb up on the low slung solo seat and open it up to feel the pure power of the latest 1690cc engine from Harley-Davidson. It may be slim, but pound for pound it packs some serious punch. Come on! Lets go for a raw ride!
