2013 Harley-Davidson Motorcycle
With a low seat that tapers to a narrow point just short of the fuel tank, the 2013 Softail Slim, which arrived as new model in 2012, is a welcoming machine to riders moving up to a big-inch bike for the first time.
Power is both plentiful and controllable, thanks to the likable Twin Cam 103B motor. Ergonomics trend toward cruising, rather than long-distance or aggressive riding, and that goes perfectly with the appealingly retro styling.
Black parts outnumber shiny bits, and fat 16-inch Dunlop complete the look, as Harley-Davidson goes for the 1950s custom bobber feel on the Softail Slim.
