2017 Harley-Davidson Softail Slim® S

/
Nothing gets more respect on the street than power. So when we built the Softail Slim® S, we loaded it up with the most powerful engine you can get in

American Muscle

The bobber style of the Softail Slim® model gets dialed up with the Screamin’ Eagle® Air-Cooled Twin Cam 110B™ engine, black triple clamp and riser, gloss black headlamp ring, black fork slider covers, black lower forks, black and mirrors, black over/under shotgun exhaust with slash cut mufflers, and optional military themed graphics. The Softail Slim® S. Modern power. Old iron attitude.

Authentic Styling

  • CUSTOM TANK GRAPHICS AND BLACK DETAILING: Check out the tank graphics on the Softail® Slim® S model. With the Olive Gold Denim paint, you get a military-inspired waterslide graphic. With the Vivid Black Paint, you get a classic Harley-Davidson Bar and Shield medallion. To compliment that look you get blacked-out styling details. Black brake levers, clutch assemblies. mirrors, triple clamp and handlebar clamp. Even the headlamp trim ring is black. Either way you go, one thing is sure. The Softail® Slim® S model is one motorcycle that refuses to blend in.
  • "HOLLYWOOD" HANDLEBARS and ""CAT EYE" CONSOLE: A cutting-edge ride that's rich with Harley-Davidson history, the Softail Slim® S model's old-iron soul comes alive right up front. Unique retro-inspired handlebars call back to the glory days of 1940s bobbers, while the gloss-black headlamp cover and the "Cat Eye" console with its retro speedo face add even more swing-era swagger.
  • STAGE 1 HIGH FLOW AIR INTAKE: Sitting between the big cylinders on the Softail® Slim® S model you'll notice a gloss black high flow round air cleaner cover, filter and back plate. This high flow filter lets the engine gulp air in massive quantities in order to make massive amounts of power. Think of it as military muscle.
  • BLACKED-OUT EXHAUST: The gloss black 110 cubic inch counter-balanced V-Twin engine on the Softail® Slim® S model feeds its sound to the world through 2 into 2 exhaust with blacked-out pipes and mufflers.
  • NARROW REAR PROFILE: The narrow rear tire and chopped fender with its integrated stop/turn/tail light and side-mounted license plate add up to a stripped-down profile that evokes the iconic, no-nonsense style of classic bobbers.
  • HIDDEN REAR SHOCKS: If you want a comfortable bike but love that rigid-suspension look, you've come to the right bike. We've kept all the modern comforts where they belong—below the surface of a rad, vintage-looking bike. You get the classic lines of a vintage 'hardtail' frame with the horizontal rear shocks hidden in the guts. It's a signature rigid look, and you'll only find it on a Softail® model.

Comfort

  • LOW SOLO SEAT: The low-slung solo saddle matches the motorcycle's clean, back-to-basics attitude, setting you "in" the bike so you ride like you're a part of it and the open road ahead of you.
  • HALF MOON FOOT BOARDS: Cruise ahead with both feet in the past with this fresh twist on a classic design. The look may be vintage but the comfort is up-to-date: the chrome-plated steel surround and high durability raised rubber shapes are assembled to offer modern cast-in vibration isolation.

Handling

  • DUNLOP® TIRES: Whether you're crossing state lines or staying within city limits, you want sure contact with the road. The front end holds a premium touring tire with a three-ply polyester casing and two fiberglass belts. The back cruiser tire has an advanced tread pattern. Made from a specifically formulated compound, it delivers outstanding grip in wet or dry weather. And since they're from Dunlop®, you know you're wrapping your premium rollers in quality rubber.
  • FRONT BRAKE SYSTEM: The front brake system on the Softail® models this year delivers a 40 percent reduction in the amount of lever force required at peak braking. The handlebar master and front cylinders have been restyled. There's a 4-piston fixed caliper with 32 and 34 mm pistons, premium caliper piston coating to minimize initial displacement and a larger 300 mm rotor. It all adds up to more stopping power with less effort.
  • ENGINEERING FOR EASY HANDLING: The Softail Slim® S motorcycle may come on heavy, but it's been designed to handle like a dream, with easy jiffy stand lift-off and great low-speed maneuverability, so you're always riding in control. And when it's time to stop, the low-slung saddle means your feet easily reach the road.
  • ELECTRONIC THROTTLE CONTROL AND CRUISE CONTROL: The minimalist styling of the Softail Slim® S motorcycle gets even cleaner with the addition of standard electronic throttle control. Take a look. There’s no cable cluttering up the handlebars. Cruise control is also included, standard. The switches are placed where you can easily dial in your speed with your left thumb. That’s all it takes to give your wrist a break and keep on hauling down the road.

Iconic Engine

  • SCREAMIN' EAGLE® AIR-COOLED, TWIN CAM 110B™ ENGINE: The knowledge of what makes an engine truly move a rider runs deep at The Motor Company, and it was put to good use when we created this counter-balanced Twin Cam 110™ engine. We sweated bullets perfecting every cubic inch, pushing design and technology forward. And we did it all without compromising one bit of Harley-Davidson's unique styling. Evolved, yet carrying on the legacy of the Flathead, Knucklehead, Panhead, Shovelhead, Evolution® and Twin Cam engines that came before. The performance and durability are a direct result of untold miles logged on the V-Twin since 1909 and the proud heritage that comes from a century's commitment to life on two wheels.
  • SCREAMIN' EAGLE® AIR-COOLED, TWIN CAM 110B™ ENGINE STYLE: Pure. Dripping with power. A jewel machined out of metal. There's no mistaking the roots of the Twin Cam 110™ Engine with its Screamin' Eagle® badges: authentic Harley-Davidson style through and through. It's gloss black heads sit atop cylinders with machined cooling fin tips to highlight the muscular shape of the engine. It's a pure, powerful declaration of the value of staying true to what satisfies the rider.
  • SCREAMIN' EAGLE® AIR-COOLED, TWIN CAM 110B™ ENGINE POWER: The Screamin’ Eagle® Air-Cooled, Twin Cam 110B™ engine in the Softail® Slim® S model is built to deliver awesome power and a smooth ride at the same time. Counter balancers dampen the vibration while the big pistons pump out the torque. You get big power on the low end and plenty to keep you happy on the high end. There's a reason we're called The Motor Company. And once you send some fuel to this one, you'll know what it is.
  • SCREAMIN' EAGLE® AIR-COOLED, TWIN CAM 110B™ ENGINE INNOVATION: Fire up the counter-balance Twin Cam 110™ engine and feel the low-end torque unleashed. The colossal 110 cubic inches provide seemingly endless torque with adrenaline-pumping pull through all six gears. And counter balancing keeps the engine rock solid smooth through all six gears. Six speeds, a strong driveline and a low cruising RPM couldn't feel better.
  • 6-SPEED CRUISE DRIVE® TRANSMISSION: You want a ride that rumbles—not begs for mercy—when you lean on it a little. The 6-Speed Cruise Drive® transmission provides smooth, quiet shifting and reduces engine speed on the highway, so you get a better match between engine turnover and road speed. It's a rare ride when a bike responds like this, and a low growl goes a long way when you're opening up the road ahead.
