2017 Harley-Davidson Softail Slim S

2017 Harley-Davidson Softail Slim S for sale

Designed to be both a tire shredder and welcoming to shorter riders, the 2017 Harley-Davidson Softail Slim S combines the hot-rodded High Output Twin Cam 110B motor with a seat height of just over 26 inches.

The Slim S also has a narrow seat, making it even easier to touch tarmac at a stop, and wide bars give good leverage on the fat 16-inch front Dunlop.

Features such as a hydraulically actuated clutch, cruise control, and ABS are standard. If you go with the Olive Gold Denim paint job, it comes with patriotic military-inspired graphics. Otherwise, the Softail Slim S is blacked out and ready for action.
