2016 Harley-Davidson Softail Slim | Buyer's Guide
2016 Harley-Davidson Softail Slim

With a low seat that tapers to a narrow point just short of the fuel tank, the 2016 Harley-Davidson Softail Slim 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 new-for-’16 High Output Twin Cam 103B motor and new air cleaner cover. Ergonomics trend toward cruising, rather than long-distance or aggressive riding.

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.
