It may have a modern Twin Cam 103B motor (new for 2012), Harley- Davidson’s Smart Security System and ABS, but the rest of the Softail Deluxe focuses on vintage styling touches.
Up front, you will 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.
