The 2014 Softail® Slim blends raw, minimalistic 1940s bobber styling with up-to-date old school minimalism. The Slim offers tons of stripped down attitude with fat features, including black-rimmed wheels, round black air cleaner cover, Hollywood-style handlebars, and fat chromed front forks, combine with raw, minimalistic finishes throughout. Its chopped rear fender and narrow rear profile adds to the long, lean vintage chopper look. The Twin Cam 103™ engine gives the power you need and it rides with confidence-inspiring handling, at low and high speeds. The low seat height and light design makes putting it on or lifting it off its easy jiffy stand quick and easy.
The perfect blend of classic, raw bobber style and contemporary power creates a modern ride with unmistakable old-iron attitude.
The Softail Slim® represents the Harley- Davidson® Softail® motorcycle paired down to its essential elements in the style of custom bobbers of the 1950s, from its narrow rear end to its trimmed front fender, solo seat and minimal chrome. With the combination of a 23.8-inch seat height and rider footboards, the Softail Slim® comfortably fits a wide range of riders.
The Softail rear suspension mimics the clean lines of a vintage hardtail frame but offers the comfort of a modern suspension that is hidden under the chassis. The rigid powertrain allows tight packaging of the engine and frame and creates a solid connection between the rider and the power that moves the motorcycle.

KEY FEATURES WHEN NEW
FEATURES AND BENEFITS WHEN NEW
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.
“Hollywood” Handlebars and “Cat Eye” Console
A cutting-edge ride that’s rich with Harley-Davidson history, the Softail® 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.
Pure Harley-Davidson® Styling
Feast your eyes on the Twin Cam 103™ 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 from any other motorcycle company. Medium gray engine with black powder-coated cylinders and cylinder heads are topped off with polished rocker covers and an old school round air cleaner cover for a tough vintage Harley-Davidson attitude. 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 103™ engine makes an ironclad statement about holding on to what’s right and staying true to what satisfies.
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.
Twin Cam 103™ Engine Innovation
Fire up the Twin Cam 103™ engine and feel the low-end torque unleashed. 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.
Twin Cam 103™ Engine Power
Live your ride to the power of 103. The air cooled Twin Cam 103™ Harley-Davidson® engine delivers more stump pulling torque, while its Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection jetting gives crisp, lively throttle reaction. It’s a performance punch that you’ll appreciate when passing, climbing hills, or rolling with luggage packed or a passenger in back—all under that signature Motor Company rumble. And it comes at lower cruising rpm, so you ride more smoothly, with less engine vibration and better highway fuel economy.
H-D® Smart Security System
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.
Anti-Lock Brakes (Optional)
$795 is all it takes to add the option of ABS to the Softail® Slim™ model. 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.
Engineered for Easy Handling
The Softail® Slim™ motorcycle may come on heavy, but its been designed to handle like a dream, with easy jiffy stand lift-off and great low-speed maneuverability, so you’re always riding in control. And when it’s time to stop, the low-slung saddle means your feet easily reach the road.
Low Solo Seat
The low-slung solo saddle matches the motorcycle’s clean, back-to-basics attitude, setting you “in” the bike so you ride like you’re a part of it and the open road ahead of you.
Half Moon Foot Boards
Cruise ahead with both feet in the past with this fresh twist on a classic design. The look may be vintage but the comfort is up-to-date: the chrome-plated steel surround and high durability raised rubber shapes are assembled to offer modern cast-in vibration isolation.

The paragraph descriptions for the pre-owned bikes are generic, what the factory used when the bikes were new so they might not be precise. The bike may have been modified. Take them with a grain of salt. Same with the specifications, those are stating how the bike was spec’d stock, when new, not necessarily as it is at this very moment. Our salespeople will be glad to answer any detailed questions should anything in the generic descriptions be confusing. Also, there are over 30,000 prices and loads of specifications on this website, we do not warrant that is entirely error free. Thanks, - Barnett Harley-Davidson
