– 2006 Harley-Davidson FXSTD/I Softail Deuce
Take a good long look at the lean, narrow design of the Softail® Deuce™ and you see why no one else can build a motorcycle like Harley-Davidson. Raked-out fork. Chrome riser and low-rise handlebar. Straight-cut dragster rear fender. Hidden rear suspension. Solid 17″ rear wheel with wide 160mm tire. Premium chrome fork sliders. But what’s style without substance? So the Deuce gets the powerful, rigid-mounted Twin Cam 88B™ engine, carbureted or with smooth-operating EFI. Topping it all off is a Badlander®-inspired seat and a stretched tank with a full-length chrome console. There’s so much custom here, who could ever resist taking a good long look?
FXSTD/I Softail® Deuce® Model Overview
Long, low and lean in profile, the FXSTD/I Softail Deuce is a style icon of the Softail line. Its chromed FX front end, raked out 33 degrees, carries a laced 21-inch wheel and low-rise, flat-track style handlebars on a curved riser. The clipped rear fender and low-profile tail light are signature cues that blend seamlessly with a stretched fuel tank and console exclusive to the Deuce. In keeping with the long, low and lean custom profile, the Deuce rolls supremely on 160mm rear rubber that not only accentuates the look but delivers a great-handling ride. Choose from 12 solid, SunGlo and two-tone paint options for the Deuce. Chrome Aluminum Profile Laced wheels are a new option for 2006.
