2012 Harley-Davidson® Softail® Slim™
The 2012 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 Harley-Davidson® 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.Features may include:
- "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.
- NARROW REAR PROFILE
The narrow rear tire and chopped fender with its integrated stop/turn/tail light and side-mounted license plate add up to a stripped-down profile that evokes the iconic, no-nonsense style of classic bobbers.
- ROUND AIR CLEANER COVER
The gloss-black retro round air cleaner cover gives the Slim™ model's minimalist, blacked-out Twin Cam 103™ Engine a raw old school look—it's modern power with old iron attitude.
- 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.
- 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.
