Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
Flash is what the Sportster 1200 Custom does best. Unlike some of its brethren, it's got lots of chrome, including on its five-spoke cast wheels. It has a fat front end, a 1,203 cc engine, and you can use Harley's H-D1 Customization programme to further personalize it with different wheels and custom paint. ABS is a $960 option.
