Harley-Davidson Softail Slim


With its unique, minimalist style, the Harley-Davidson Softail has conquered a lot of fans. The motorcycle is now available in Slim configuration, which is basically a stripped down version of the base model.

Among the features offered by the new Harley-Davidson Softail Slim you’ll find black-rimmed wheels, round black air cleaner cover, Hollywood-style handlebars and fat chromed front forks. The vintage look of the motorcycle is underlined by its chopped rear fender and the low slung profile.

But what makes this bike truly desirable is its twin cam 96B counter-balanced engine. This unit has evolved on the legacy of the Flathead, Knucklehead, Panhead, Shovelhead, Evolution and Twin Cam 88 engines that made Harley Davidson’s motorcycles famous. The engine has a 1,688 cc displacement and rewards you with a peak torque of 132 Nm achieved at 3,250 rpm.

Hit the jump for more information on the 2013 Harley-Davidson Softail Slim.
