About Harley-Davidson Softail® Softail® Deluxe

The 2011 Harley-Davidson Softail Deluxe FLSTN is a motorcycle cruiser with authentic Harley style. The Harley fenders on the Softail Deluxe are true retro style with their long lines and chrome Harley fender tips. And each fender says Deluxe so everyone will know how you roll. The Harley Softail Deluxe has a wide front end fork and gorgeous 7 inch ball motorcycle headlamp. White wall tires give this motorcycle cruiser a 1950s boulevard retro motorcycle look. Hit the boulevard in style with this classic two up FLSTN Softail Deluxe seat. At a lowdown 24.5 inches, it's among the lowest seat heights you'll find. And we've added some ergonomics to make riding solo or duo even easier, especially for riders with a shorter inseam. "Collapsing" sides create a narrow seat profile, and the passenger seat pillion is detachable. Learn more about all of the features of the Harley Softail Deluxe. Also take a minute to check each of the other Softail Motorcycle features. Take a look at the Fat Boy Lo for one more of the custom Harley motorcycles. For another of the choppers check the Rocker C and also learn more about the Softail FLSTF, one more of the custom motorbikes.

Key Features

AUTHENTIC STYLING

Stretched Old-School Fenders

Softail® Deluxe

These vintage, full fenders do a lot more than keep the mud off your neck. They give your Deluxe its distinctive Softail lines and cruising profile. You get tasty chrome front and back fender tips, tapered chrome struts in back and a big canvas for custom paint. And plenty of room to personalize further with your own custom rails, skirts and tips.

Old-School "Hardtail" Look

Softail® Deluxe

The Softail® Deluxe model keeps it classy while bringing some fat custom style of its own. Just check out the chopsticks up front—fat front fork behind the huge, 7-inch ball headlamp. The handlebars are thick stainless steel with chrome pullback risers for easy reaching. It's old-school Softail style that's still fat and formidable up front.

Vehicle shown may vary visually by market.  Vehicles depicted may differ from vehicles manufactured and delivered.  See your dealer for details.

Whitewall Tires

Softail® Deluxe

One of the defining styling features of the Softail® Deluxe model is the nostalgic wide whitewall tires with premium laced wheels. A nod to the ‘50s boulevard look, these fat rubber rollers are just the right throwback detail from Harley-Davidson that ups the ante in any scene. Total old-school styling without sacrificing handling or performance.

Vehicle shown may vary visually by market.  Vehicles depicted may differ from vehicles manufactured and delivered.  See your dealer for details.

Tombstone Taillight

Softail® Deluxe

A vintage classic. The chrome, low profile taillight housing lays back against the fender but shines with Harley-Davidson history. Flanked by our sleek silver bullet turn signals, that glowing red gravestone is the last thing they'll see as you pull away into the night.

Vehicle shown may vary visually by market.  Vehicles depicted may differ from vehicles manufactured and delivered.  See your dealer for details.

Tank-Mounted Console

Softail® Deluxe

For 2011, the speedometer face boasts an even bigger, bolder display for the odometer and offers up more information on the fly, like an ancillary display for gear and rpm.

Vehicle shown may vary visually by market.  Vehicles depicted may differ from vehicles manufactured and delivered.  See your dealer for details.

Hidden Rear Shocks

Softail® Deluxe

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.

Vehicle shown may vary visually by market.  Vehicles depicted may differ from vehicles manufactured and delivered.  See your dealer for details.

Luggage Rack

Softail® Deluxe

Exclusive to the Softail® Deluxe model and snaking directly off the back of the passenger pillion, the simple luggage rack is the perfect marriage of form and function. It's minimal in design but extremely useful on the road; it holds your most precious small carry-alongs and adds another gleam of chrome for good measure.

Vehicle shown may vary visually by market.  Vehicles depicted may differ from vehicles manufactured and delivered.  See your dealer for details.

Premium Paint

Softail® Deluxe

Up to two times thicker than the competition, custom quality paint comes standard on all Harley-Davidson® motorcycles. Clearcoat layering up to five mils deep. Bigger metal flakes. Unique effects. Skimping simply is not in our vocabulary.

Hand Finished Fuel Tank

Softail® Deluxe

All Harley-Davidson® fuel tanks are finished by hand—that's what makes them stand out from the competition. Their seamless design and unmatched style are unique among all motorcycles on the road. The tanks are one of the first and last things people notice when they lay their eyes on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle—so we make it worth their time.

ICONIC ENGINE

Twin Cam 96B™ Engine Heritage

Softail® Deluxe

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 96B™ counter-balanced 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 88® 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.

Vehicle shown may vary visually by market.  Vehicles depicted may differ from vehicles manufactured and delivered.  See your dealer for details.

Twin Cam 96B™ Engine Innovation

Softail® Deluxe

Fire up the air-cooled, rigid-mounted Twin Cam 96B™ counter-balanced engine and feel the low-end torque unleashed for a smooth ride. 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.

Vehicle shown may vary visually by market.  Vehicles depicted may differ from vehicles manufactured and delivered.  See your dealer for details.

Pure Harley-Davidson Styling

Softail® Deluxe

Feast your eyes on the Twin Cam 96B™ counter-balanced 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 on any other bike.
The black powder-coated engine features machined cooking fin tips and is topped off with brilliant chrome rocker covers. Rigid-mounted and air-cooled, the 1584cc Twin Cam 96B™ engine provides increased power, smooth performance and a maintenance-free built-in primary auto chain tensioner. 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 96B™ engine makes an ironclad statement to holding on to what's right and staying true to what satisfies the rider.

Six-Speed Cruise Drive®

Softail® Deluxe

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.

Vehicle shown may vary visually by market.  Vehicles depicted may differ from vehicles manufactured and delivered.  See your dealer for details.

Classic Harley-Davidson Rumble

Softail® Deluxe

Iconic, fierce, the most distinct decibels you'll ever hear bouncing off the city canyons or scenic country landscapes. The sound of a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle has a rich history of its own. It's a classic roar. It's the sound of freedom, soul and self-expression.

Vehicle shown may vary visually by market.  Vehicles depicted may differ from vehicles manufactured and delivered.  See your dealer for details.

TECHNOLOGY

Anti-Lock Brakes (Optional)

Softail® Deluxe

When it comes to the Softail® Deluxe model with optional ABS, "stopping power" has a double meaning. The components of our ABS are tastefully hidden within the wheel hub, so you'll still turn heads with clean, streamlined design. More importantly, though, you get certainty in the saddle knowing your bike's going to behave when you need it. Offered as a part of the "Security Package" (which includes the H-D® Smart Security System).

Vehicle shown may vary visually by market.  Vehicles depicted may differ from vehicles manufactured and delivered.  See your dealer for details.

H-D® Smart Security System (Optional)

Softail® Deluxe

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).

Vehicle shown may vary visually by market.  Vehicles depicted may differ from vehicles manufactured and delivered.  See your dealer for details.

Artfully Hidden Technology

Softail® Deluxe

Harley-Davidson leverages the latest in technology without compromising style and function. That means we hide electronics. The whole wiring harness is skillfully routed behind the jewels of the bike—the tank, engine and all the other eye-popping features you want to see. It's just another way The Motor Company goes the extra mile to give its bikes that premium, top-of-the-line fit and finish.

Intuitive Controls

Softail® Deluxe

Hand controls on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle are incredibly intuitive. The turn signals are self-canceling and, based on the speed and angle of the motorcycle, they know how long to stay on. Engaging the controls quickly becomes second nature so you can focus less on turning off your signal and more on basking in the freedom of the ride.

HANDLING

Dunlop® Tires

Softail® Deluxe

Whether you're crossing state lines or staying within city limits, you want a confident feeling of 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.

Tuned to Be Ridden

Softail® Deluxe

Harley-Davidson® motorcycles are different from any other bike out on the road. There's a balance to them. The steering, the maneuverability—it's all in concert. And each Harley-Davidson® model is tuned differently to create a unique riding experience for each individual no matter which bike they swing their leg over. Let's face it, we didn't get to where we are by being like everyone else.

COMFORT

Easy Reach Handlebar

Softail® Deluxe

This bar practically begs you reach out and grab your freedom. A perfectly ergonomic place to start for new riders, and easy-rider comfort for road-hardened warriors. The chrome pullback riser gets that grip even closer and gives the front end a dynamic aerodynamic contour.

Vehicle shown may vary visually by market.  Vehicles depicted may differ from vehicles manufactured and delivered.  See your dealer for details.

Low Seat with Slimmed Sides

Softail® Deluxe

Hit the boulevard in style with this classic Softail® two-up seat. At a lowdown 24.5 inches, it's among the most slammed seats you'll find. And we've added some ergos to make riding solo or duo even easier, especially for riders with a shorter inseam. "Collapsing" sides create a narrow seat profile, and the passenger seat pillion is detachable. Just ditch it for stripped-back, solo riding. Or leave it on and bring your better half along for the ride.

Full-Length Rider Footboards

Softail® Deluxe

Your boots were made for riding, in any way you see fit. Our full-length footboards boast a tried and true design that's stood the test of time. Plenty of foot positions for your taste and comfort. Rubber vibration isolation for a comfortable ride. And heel-toe shifting for confident shifting every time. It takes a few rides, but once you've gotten used to the smooth heel-toe rhythm, you'll never give it up. The toes of your boots won't take the same beating, either.

Engine Idle Temperature Management Strategy

Softail® Deluxe

Our motorcycles are built to be ridden. A lot. So that means that rider comfort is top of mind. Always. With the Engine Idle Temperature Management Strategy (EITMS) feature, the motorcycle automatically cuts fuel and fire from rear cylinder when idling, which helps reduce engine heat felt by rider and passenger. This feature can easily be turned on by your dealer.

Seat Engineering and Design

Softail® Deluxe

The seat is home for Harley-Davidson® motorcycle riders. They want a seat that has unique style without sacrificing comfort. Because of that, Harley-Davidson invests a lot of time in researching, designing and testing seats so that every bike has just the right saddle.
