Harley-Davidson is still pumping out the new-ish models, the latest being the 1200 Custom.
Harley describes the new Sportster as a model with “Phattitude”. Seriously?
The new bike gets its phattitude with a new, wide front end that uses a fat, 130/90-16 front tire. Other new features include a reshaped headlight brow, a new LED taillight and revised suspension rates. Also new are the five-spoke wheels.
Harley also uses the 1200 Custom to introduce the new H-D1 Factory Customization program. This new online program allows you to custom tailor the 1200 Custom with different wheels, seats, handlebars, paint and engine finishes.
You can also alter the riding position by combining different handlebar, seat and foot control locations.
Once you’ve configured your machine, which you can view virtually on the website, you can print out a description of it and take it to your dealer to place the order. Delivery is expected in as little as six to eight weeks.
Base price for the 1200 Custom is $11,839 and the price goes up from there when building your own.
