New Harley-Davidson 1200 Custom motorcycle rolls wide and proud


by Deeley Harley-Davidson Canada

A wide front end and chunky 16-inch tire give the new Harley-Davidson 1200 Custom motorcycle a proud stance that is strong and contemporary. Introduced as a mid-year addition to the 2011 Harley-Davidson model line-up, the 1200 Custom motorcycle also features new wheels, a pull-back handlebar, and a reshaped LED tail lamp.

These elements combine to give the 1200 Custom motorcycle an exciting new look, which are only a starting point for this Sportster model. The 1200 Custom motorcycle will also debut H-D1 Factory Customization – a new opportunity that allows the Customer to choose from seven option categories to optimize fit, function, and style. By selecting from available Factory-installed wheels, handlebars, seats, paint, foot control position, security system, and engine finish, the Customer can create a 1200 Custom that is a truly personalized motorcycle. Factory customization is the latest element of Harley-Davidson customization, which also includes Genuine Motor Parts and Genuine Motor Accessories catalogues, Fit Shop and Bike Builder on, Genuine Motor Accessories Custom Seat and Custom Paint programs, Chrome Consultant and Fit Shop advisors at Harley-Davidson Retail locations, and much more.
