If you’re looking for a great cruising bike with a smooth ride and cool profile, you will definitely want to check out the 2017 Harley-Davidson Softail Slim. H-D calls this bike a “modern ride with unmistakable old-iron attitude.”
Authentic 1950s Style
The styling of the 2017 Softail Slim is sleek and authentic – from the “Hollywood handlebars” and “cat eye” console to the narrow rear profile with hidden rear shocks inside the black steel laced wheels. This head-turning bike is available in 5 different colors – vivid black, black denim, iron red denim, olive gold and a charcoal denim/black denim duotone.
A Powerful Cruising Bike
The Softail Slim is a cruising machine with some muscle behind it. It comes with the chassis and High Output Twin Cam 103B motor that you expect from the Softail line. The Softail Slim offers an impressive torque of 103 ft/lbs at 4,000 rpm and a six-speed transmission with a hydraulically activated clutch.
Even with all of this power behind it, riders enjoy a quiet and low-maintenance ride thanks to its fiber-reinforced belt drive. Weighing in at 706 pounds, this bike will get you wherever the road takes you with a 5.0 gallon fuel capacity and an EPA estimated fuel consumption of 42 mpg.
The 2017 Harley-Davidson Softail Slim is Always a Super Smooth Ride
Cruising on the Softail Slim is a dream, thanks to the high profile tires that make riding in the city incredibly smooth. The FLS saddle sits at only 24 inches high – one of the lowest in the cruiser category of bikes. The bike also features forward foot controls. This combination allows you to sit in the perfect upright, relaxed position so you can simply cruise and enjoy the ride.
