The idea behind bobbers has always been to strip down and soup up the bike for a more exciting ride. The all-new Softail Slim® takes that idea to the edge. The look is authentic bobber-style done the way only Harley-Davidson can. It’s 35lb lighter than before. It has more power, more lean angle, and redesigned front and rear suspension. So you can put the Milwaukee-Eight® 107 engine to use and have some fun on your favorite twisty roads.
