2013 Softail® Softail® Slim™ Products Harley-Davidson® "Hollywood" Handlebars and "Cat Eye" Console

"Hollywood" Handlebars and "Cat Eye" Console

A cutting-edge ride that's rich with Harley-Davidson history, the Slim 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.

2013 Softail® Softail® Slim™ Products Harley-Davidson® Air Cleaner Cover

Air Cleaner Cover

The gloss-black retro-styled air cleaner cover gives the Softail® Slim model's minimalist, blacked-out Twin Cam 103 Engine a raw old skool look—it's modern power with old iron attitude.

2013 Softail® Softail® Slim™ Products Harley-Davidson® Hidden Rear Shocks

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.

2013 Softail® Softail® Slim™ Products Harley-Davidson® Twin Cam 103™ Engine Heritage

Twin Cam 103 Engine Heritage

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 the Twin Cam 103 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®, Twin Cam 88®; and Twin Cam 96 engines that came before. The performance and durability are a direct result of the untold miles logged on the V-Twin since 1909, and the proud heritage that comes from a century's worth of commitment to life on two wheels.

2013 Softail® Softail® Slim™ Products Harley-Davidson® Twin Cam 103™ Engine Innovation

Twin Cam 103 Engine Innovation

Fire up the Twin Cam 103 engine and feel the low-end torque unleashed. Thanks to the lightweight piston design, delivery of the added power is more refined than ever. Then put your foot on the shifter and feel how the engine and Six-Speed Cruise Drive® transmission were designed to work together. Six speeds. A strong driveline and strong internal parts. Low routine maintenance. And a low cruising rpm couldn't feel better.

2013 Softail® Softail® Slim™ Products Harley-Davidson® Pure Harley-Davidson Styling

Pure Harley-Davidson Styling

Feast your eyes on the Twin Cam 103 engine and there's no mistaking its roots. This is authentic Harley-Davidson style through and through with an attention to detail you won't find from any other motorcycle company. Medium gray engine with black powder-coated cylinders and cylinder heads are topped off with polished rocker covers and an old school round air cleaner cover for a tough vintage Harley-Davidson attitude. It's a jewel machined out of metal. Pure. Dripping with power. From the classic edge of the cooling fins to the clean lines of cases and covers—the Twin Cam 103 engine makes an ironclad statement about holding on to what's right and staying true to what satisfies.

2013 Softail® Softail® Slim™ Products Harley-Davidson® Six-Speed Cruise Drive®

Six-Speed Cruise Drive®

You want a ride that rumbles—not begs for mercy—when you lean on it a little. The Six-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.

2013 Softail® Softail® Slim™ Products Harley-Davidson® Anti-Lock Brakes

Anti-Lock Brakes

You may be cruising with swagger, but you know safety counts. This sophisticated, factory-installed ABS gives 'stopping power' a double meaning. Its components are tastefully hidden within the wheel hub, so you'll still turn heads with clean, streamlined design. But more importantly, you get certainty in the saddle knowing your bike's going to behave when you need it.

2013 Softail® Softail® Slim™ Products Harley-Davidson® H-D Smart Security System

H-D Smart Security System

The factory installed next-generation security system features a hands-free fob that automatically arms and disarms the vehicle electronic security functions as you approach and walk away from the bike. Stick the fob on your ignition key ring and let it do all the work. It's this attention to details and security that make Harley-Davidson® motorcycles unique. Offered as a part of the 'Security Package' (which includes Anti-Lock Brakes).

About Harley-Davidson Softail® Slim

The 2013 Softail Slim FLS blends raw, minimalistic 1940s bobber styling with up-to-date old school minimalism. The Slim offers tons of stripped down attitude, fat features, including black-rimmed wheels, round black air cleaner cover, Hollywood-style handlebars, and fat chromed front forks, as well as raw, minimalistic finishes throughout. Its chopped rear fender and narrow rear profile adds to the Softail Slim's long, lean vintage chopper look. The 103cc Twin Cam engine gives the Slim FLS the power punch you need to crush those hills or leave traffic passed and behind. The Softail FLS sports blacked out features and raw finishes for a no-nonsense attitude that recalls classic bobbers of the 1940; the engine, rims, air-cover, headlamp and more are all blacked out. The H-D Slim rides with confidence-inspiring handling, at low and high speeds, and its light design makes putting it on or lifting it off its easy jiffy stand quick and easy. The Harley Slim is a great value with muscular, minimalist styling and powerful performance packed into a bike that's affordable. And if this bike isn't what you're looking for, check out other Harley-Davidson custom motorcycles, like the Softail Blackline FXS, Sportster Forty-Eight XL1200X, the Dyna Fat Bob FXDF, or the new Sportster Seventy-Two XL1200V. Harley-Davidson is the leader in fat custom, dark custom and bobber style bikes and you're sure to find one that's perfect for you.
