2011 Harley Softail Deluxe | Quick Look

2011 Harley-Davidson Motorcycle

It may have a modern Twin Cam 96B motor and, for 2011, Harley- Davidson’s Smart Security System and ABS, but the rest of the Softail Deluxe focuses on vintage styling touches.

Up front, you’ll find a deeply valanced fender, a laced 16-inch chrome wheel and a high-profile wide whitewall Dunlop tire.

As part of the Softail line, it has the look of a hard tail in the rear, but the suspension is hidden. Harley gives the Softail Deluxe a modern 26-inch seat height, making it an approachable machine for any fan of vintage cruisers.
