– 2006 Harley-Davidson FLSTN/I Softail Deluxe

When the Softail® Deluxe hit the showrooms, riders big and small couldn’t wait to take this plush ride to the road. How could we blame them? Whitewall to whitewall, every detail is sheer beauty. Long-barreled shotgun pipes. Clean front light bars with bullet turn signals. Tombstone taillight. Low seat with grab rail — you’re just 24.5″ off the ground. Pullback riser and handlebar. Long floorboards. Integrated luggage rack. Tank and fender emblems. And a big retro-style speedometer like nothing else you’ve seen in decades. Power is big and modern. You get a wrinkle black and chrome Twin Cam 88B™ engine in carb or EFI. Once brought to life, no one can resist its lure.


OVERVIEW
FLSTN/I Softail® Deluxe features Model Overview
FLSTN/I Softail Deluxe combines easy-riding comfort with a heavy dose of nostalgia to create an eye-catching custom that’s a joy to ride. It hugs the road on lowered suspension. The pull-back riser and handlebars and 24.5-inch seat height make the Softail Deluxe comfortable for a wide range of riders. It’s also the lowest Softail in the line. Custom details include a tapered chrome luggage rack, checked seat side panels and a chrome grab rail, tapered floorboards with chrome trim and clean front and rear light bars with bullet signals. Wide whitewall tires over laced chrome wheels, distinctive tank and fender emblems and a classic tombstone tail light recall another era. Choose from seven paint schemes, including the two-tone combinations of Glacier White/Deep Cobalt and Glacier White/ Vivid Black. Chrome Aluminum Profile Laced wheels are available as a factory-installed option.
