The 2020 Harley-Davidson Softail Slim is a classic cruiser done up in bobber styling—a minimal aesthetic that’s popular among younger riders and custom builders. With features like spoked wheels, chopped fenders, floorboards, and shotgun exhaust this should be on anyone’s list if they are looking for a 1950-style ride. The Softail Slim is stripped down, stylish, and ready to ride all day thanks to comfortable ergonomics and H-D’s Milwaukee-Eight 107 powerplant.
In 2018, when the Dyna line was merged with the Softail, Harley-Davidson implemented changes to the suspension, improved handling and lean angle, and reduced weight, which Kevin Cameron reviewed in detail.
Competition includes the Indian Chief Dark Horse and Triumph Bonneville Bobber.
There are no significant updates for the 2020 model year. The 2020 machine is available in Vivid Black, Black Denim, Barracuda Silver Denim, and Billiard Burgundy.
