New H-D Softail Slim tested

|  May 24, 2012 |

Cycle World has a road test review of the new Harley-Davidson Softail Slim, if you’re so disposed.

I saw one of these at the dealer earlier this week and it looked good. Fat front tire, low slung seat, a little less mass than the regular cruisers, a good daily driver.

I’m not sure about the brushed aluminum chain-case cover and other components. Brushed aluminum doesn’t clean up well after a few thousand miles. But the rest was all, “iconic” as they say.
