We put Harley’s low-slung cruiser motorcycle, the first regular production model with the Twin Cam 110 engine, to the test in our 2016 Softail Slim S Review. From dyno runs to mileage charts to 0-60 mph runs, read the results in our 2016 Harley Softail Slim S Review article.
- The 2016 Softail Slim S has an MSRP of $18,499 in the Solid Black version or $18,899 with the Olive Gold Denim treatment.
- The seat of the 2016 Softail Slim S is comfortable for around town but not so good for long hauls as pressure points settle in where the seat curves up.

- Harley transmissions have come a long way, the six-speed gearbox of the Softail Slim S engaging solidly and reliably.
- The Softail Slim S sports vintage-style "Hollywood" handlebars tidied up with internal wiring.
- The air-cooled 45-degree V-Twin of the Softail Slim S is counterbalanced so its bolted directly to the frame without putting out excessive vibrations.

- At over 6000-foot elevation, the EFI of the 2016 Softail Slim S worked fine, but the rugged road exposed shortcomings of its rear suspension.
- Even with a 23.8-inch seat height laden, we still had enough room to stretch out our legs at six-feet-tall.
- The 2016 Softail Slim S projects a retro vibe with its vintage “Hollywood” bars, WLA-inspired paint, and hardtail-looking rear.
- 2016 Harley Softail Slim S Dyno Chart
