For the 2016 range, Harley-Davidson is launching two versions of models with the 110ci CVO-based Screamin’ Eagle engine.

That motor was only previously available on the CVO range, but for next year both the Softail Slim and Fat Boy models get ‘S’ options – the S denoting the new lump.


Harley says that the power is now up to 106ft-lbs, also announced is that for the first time electronic cruise control is standard on  2016 Heritage Softail Classic, Softail Deluxe, Fat Boy S and Softail Slim S models and available as an accessory for all other 2016 Softail models.


Brad Richards, Harley-Davidson Director of styling said: “While the Olive Gold paint and star graphic are reminiscent of the WLA military models Harley-Davidson built during World War II, the Softail Slim S pays homage to the post-war chop-ups made from those bikes after the war.


“Those garage customs started the bobber era that continues to inspire our styling team today. When we started styling the Fat Boy S we took it completely black, and then we pulled it back a little until our gut told us it was right. We kept the highlights on the wheels and the tank badge, but this is still the darkest Fat Boy ever.”
