For Harley Davidson's Softail Slim 2015, the concept is an attempt to unite the good ol' bobber bike with the strength and comfort of motorcycles of today.

For the Softail series of motorcycles from Harley, including the 2015 edition of Softail Slim, the rigid-suspension appearance is very iconic and is achieved by concealing the rear shocks.
Reminders of the bobber era can also be found in several details of the Softail Slim. The slimmed profile of the motorcycle when seen from behind, along with the classic "Hollywood" handlebars, headlight coating and console gives it a distinct 40's look that should please nostalgic riders.
Comfortable solo riding in 40's style
The Softail Slim is designed to be mounted by a single rider, with a seat that is compact, low and allows you to really sink into the motorcycle rather than being on it. Together with the slim foot rests in a very distinctive half-oval shapes, with it's special rubber designed to fend off vibrations, the Softail Slim manages to retains it retro look without losing any comfort.
