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.
