2016 Harley-Davidson Softail Slim S | Motorcycle Buyer’s Guide

2016 Harley-Davidson Softail Slim S | Buyer's GuideBoasting military-inspired graphics, a solo seat, and lots of black paint, the 2016 Harley-Davidson Softail Slim S has a purposeful look.

Harley-Davidson gave the Slim S a motor to match that attitude—the Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 110B powerplant with a Screamin’ Eagle Stage I high-flow air filter. Putting 109 ft/lbs of torque to the pavement via a chunky Dunlop Harley-Davidson rear tire, the Slim S also has a fat 16-inch front tire to give it a confident feel on the road. Upgraded standard features include electronic cruise control, a hydraulic clutch, Smart Security System (with hands-free fob) and ABS.
