I confess to have personally melted for this new S series and in particular for the Softail Slim S with this particularly successful ‘Army’ colours. A too patriotic strand some would say, but one thing is certain, it does not go unnoticed. But babbling truce because the most important thing to remember about this S series is the appearance of the Screamin’ ‘ Eagle Twin Cam 110 1801 cm3, which until today was used only on the CVO line.
The Softail model forfeits its areas chrome in favour of more discreet black and matte black exhaust system also. Ditto for the Fat Boy, which retains its legendary solid rim but who opts for a look more nasty boy with the disappearance of a large part of the chrome.
One of the novelties of the range Harley-Davidson 2016 is the series ‘S’. It consists on the one hand Harley-Davidson Softail Slim s, a more powerful variant of the Softail Slim which also enjoys a special decoration. It is available in limited from 22,800 euros.
The key to this version is mainly the adoption of Screamin’ motor’ Eagle Twin Cam 110, up to now only reserved for CVO preparations more premium Milwaukee firm. East V-Twim 1,801 cc engine makes 136 Nm of torque at just 3,000 rpm, so it is more powerful than a standard Slim. It also comes with circular air intakes larger.
As usual in this type of updates enjoy a special decoration. In this case the color Olive Gold Denim fills the tank and fenders, in addition to Bar and Shield logo in the style of the custom after the second world war. Shifters brake, clutch, mirrors, plates, handlebars, trim from the lighthouse or leaks stands have been dyed black to complement it. If you don’t like this decoration also are available in color Vivid Black.
Otherwise it is the same Softail Slim we know, with control of series Cruiser, electronic Accelerator, seat only 650 mm above the ground, 18.9 litre tank, weight of 321 litres in running order or 16-inch wheels.
