2012 Harley-Davidson FLHTCUSE7 CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide Review

Top of the line Grand American Touring as only Harley-Davidson® does it. From power to premium features—when you want it all, this bike can bring it.

The CVO™ Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® takes luxury to new heights with a suspended, dual-control heated seat, adjustable passenger backrest with lumbar support; plush lined Tour- Pak® luggage, saddlebags and more.

The CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide is built on the innovative Harley-Davidson Touring chassis, based on a single-spar, rigid backbone frame and swingarm developed to withstand the demands of long-haul touring riders.

2012 CVO™ Ultra Classic® Electra Glide®: This ultimate long-haul touring motorcycle is ready to take on the most-challenging touring assignments with style. New features for 2012 start with BOOM!™ Audio High Performance BOOM! Bagger™ Speakers plus new BOOM!™ Audio Bass Booster Ports in the Tour-Pak bottom liner. These are all powered by an amplifier tuned to match the dynamics of the speakers and the motorcycle environment. An 8GB Apple iPod nano and iPod interface completes the audio package. The CVO Ultra rolls on new Mirror Chrome Chisel Custom wheels with matching brake rotors, and the King Tour-Pak features new chrome LED brake/tail lamps. The suspended, dual-control heated, two-up seat and adjustable passenger backrest have an H-D Bar & Shield monogram and pebbled pattern texture. Electronic Throttle Control (ETC), cruise control, and ABS are standard equipment. Three new color combinations are available.

 

EXCLUSIVE CVO™ ENHANCEMENTS

All the quality. All the legacy of the Harley-Davidson® name. Plus custom touches and performance that distinguish you from every other bike on the road. Sure there's a little vanity. Premium custom paint. Big, tricked-out wheels. The perfect storm of engineering and style you'll only find on a custom machine. And you'll spoil yourself with the accessories—from comfort to electronics to chrome. But the real signature of a Harley-Davidson® Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycle is the explosive power and sleek detailing of the huge Screamin' Eagle® engine. It's custom-built, not just for anyone, but for true connoisseurs of the road.

GTX® SADDLEBAGS AND TOUR-PAK®

These injection-molded hard bags have room for 2.26 cu. ft. volume of long-haul luxuries and a perfect surface for showing off some premium paint. Even better, these saddlebags open from the top, so your gear won't end up spilled all over the highway. They keep your fancy unmentionables dry, and the chrome latches won't corrode in bad weather. And when you're off the road, one common key starts the bike and gives you access to your saddlebags, keeping your pockets as uncluttered as your bike's refined design.
The premium Tour-Pak® adds to the luxury look and gives you even more space to pack stuff for the road. And we add another layer to the mix with exclusive Custom Vehicle Operations™ saddlebag and Tour-Pak® carry-out liners. Dual-direction zippers for more access. Side pockets for your quick-reach items like cell phones, keys and wallet. Rubber bottoms that keep the insides dry and clean, and d-rings let you clip on attachments and shoulder straps for easy transport.

CHROME DUAL EXHAUST

The premium custom look goes the distance on the CVO™ Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® model with the chrome dual exhaust. Featuring 4-inch touring mufflers, chrome billet end caps with black spears and chrome touring exhaust shields. Relish in the rumble and performance of these high-end pipes.

HAND FINISHED FUEL TANK

Harley-Davidson® fuel tanks are finished by hand—that's what makes them stand out from the competition. Their seamless design and unmatched style are unique among all motorcycles on the road. The tanks are one of the first and last things people notice when they lay their eyes on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle—so we make it worth their time. And a classically styled, bold six-gallon fuel tank doesn't just give you a bigger canvas for premium or custom paint; it holds six gallons of go so you can eat up a lot more road between pit stops.

CHROME WRAPAROUND LED BRAKE/TAIL LAMP

The back end of the CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide model demonstrates once again the premium style and innovative engineering you'll find with the Custom Vehicle Operations at Harley-Davidson. The taillight features an integrated chrome wraparound brake light for a clean look. And with its wraparound coverage, you get additional style, increased visual footprint at night and long-lasting LEDs that just keep burning on.

CHROME CHISEL WHEELS

Aggressive yet balanced, every element of the CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide model is painstakingly designed to deliver the most luxurious riding experience—and that includes the chrome Chisel wheels with matching open rotors. With a 17-inch front wheel and a 16-inch in back, this Ultra boasts smooth, nimble handling no matter where your journey takes you.

HIGH-IMPACT PAINT AND GRAPHICS

Individually crafted and hand finished, high-impact paint and graphics come standard on all Harley-Davidson® Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycles. The CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide's exclusive color schemes are adorned with concentrated glass and mirrors for a light-catching candy appearance, while the Big City Lights graphic makes for a dramatic highlight. Skimping? The word's simply not in our vocabulary.

SCREAMIN' EAGLE® TWIN CAM 110™ ENGINE HERITAGE

The knowledge of what makes an engine truly move a rider runs deep at The Motor Company, and it was put to good use when we created the Screamin' Eagle® Twin Cam 110™ engine. We sweated bullets perfecting every cubic inch, pushing design and technology forward.
And we did it all without compromising one bit of Harley-Davidson's unique styling. Evolved, yet carrying on the legacy of the Flathead, Knucklehead, Panhead, Shovelhead, Evolution® and Twin Cam 88® engines that came before. The performance and durability are a direct result of the untold miles logged on the V-Twin since 1909, and the proud heritage that comes from a century's worth of commitment to life on two wheels.

SCREAMIN' EAGLE® TWIN CAM 110™ ENGINE INNOVATION

Fire up the Twin Cam 110™ engine and feel the low-end torque unleashed. The colossal 110 cubic inches provide seemingly endless torque with adrenaline-pumping pull through all six gears. Boasting the largest-displacement V-Twin engine by Harley-Davidson, the Twin Cam 110™ produces 118 ft. lbs. of torque at 3750 rpm. Six speeds. A strong driveline and strong internal parts. Low routine maintenance. And a low cruising rpm couldn't feel better.

PURE HARLEY-DAVIDSON STYLING

Feast your eyes on the Twin Cam 110™ engine and there's no mistaking its roots. This is authentic Harley-Davidson® style through and through with an attention to detail you won't find from any other motorcycle company. Granite heads and cylinders feature machined cooling fin tips and are highlighted by chrome rocker covers. Exclusive to Custom Vehicle Operations™, the granite powertrain and 110 badging are unapologetically distinguished. It's a jewel machined out of metal. Pure. Dripping with power.
From the classic edge of the cooling fins to the clean lines of cases and covers—the Twin Cam 110™ engine makes an ironclad statement to holding on to what's right and staying true to what satisfies the rider.

SIX-SPEED CRUISE DRIVE®

You want a ride that rumbles—not begs for mercy—when you lean on it a little. The Six-Speed Cruise Drive® transmission provides smooth, quiet shifting and reduces engine speed on the highway, so you get a better match between engine turnover and road speed. And the Isolated Drive System makes acceleration flow in a smooth, steady stream from your wrist right down to the pavement. It's a rare ride when a bike responds like this, and a low growl goes a long way when you're opening up the road ahead.

HYDRAULIC CLUTCH

Performance gets the custom treatment on Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycles. The addition of a high-performance clutch with hydraulic actuation helps make sure you're getting a smooth, confident feel with just the right amount of effort and a hands-off reliability that's only fitting. And you'll love the confidence and control it lends when harnessing those 110 cubic inches of Screamin' Eagle® power.

'VENTILATOR' INTAKE WITH SCREAMIN' EAGLE® 110 INSERT

Everything about the Screamin' Eagle® Twin Cam 110™ Engine is a testament to the premium styling and performance you get with a limited Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycle. Right smack between the engine jugs rests the high-flow 'ventilator' intake with high-flow filter element, back plate, diamond-cut, charcoal Screamin' Eagle badge and protective rain sock. Your bike will breathe easy while the increased air flow boosts the raw power. Unique and exclusive. That is what Custom Vehicle Operations is all about.

ANTI-LOCK BRAKES

When it comes to the CVO™ Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® model with ABS, 'stopping power' has a double meaning. The components of our ABS are tastefully hidden within the wheel hub, so you'll still turn heads with a clean, streamlined design. More importantly, though, you get certainty in the saddle knowing your bike's going to behave when you need it.

HIGH OUTPUT ACCESSORY CONNECTOR

Harley-Davidson® touring means maximum comfort in all conditions and the capacity to add whatever enhances and personalizes your ride. The high output charging system provides an electrical capacity robust enough for your add-ons: heated vests, lights to showcase the engine, you name it. So if you're hell-bent on two-wheeling it, we make sure you've got the juice to do it your way.

TOUR-PAK®-MOUNTED 12V POWER SUPPLY

Whether you need a quick charge for your cell phone or dinner from a hotplate on a lonely stretch of road, knowing you've got 15 amps of power to get through the day or night goes a long way. And don't worry about pesky rain spoiling your power supply—the spring-loaded cap keeps the receptor dry and free of road muck.

ELECTRONIC CRUISE CONTROL

If you're ready to take Touring to the next level, the cruise control feature will help you settle in for the long haul. Get the comfort of the cruise without the cables cluttering up your handlebar. Our electronic throttle control technology makes it possible to have the best of both worlds.

ARTFULLY HIDDEN TECHNOLOGY

Harley-Davidson leverages the latest in technology without compromising style and function. That means we hide electronics. The whole wiring harness is skillfully routed behind the jewels of the bike—the tank, engine and all the other eye-popping features you want to see. It's just another way The Motor Company goes the extra mile to give its bikes that premium, top-of-the-line fit and finish.

INTUITIVE CONTROLS

Hand controls on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle are incredibly intuitive. The turn signals are self-canceling and, based on the speed and angle of the motorcycle, they know how long to stay on. Engaging the controls quickly becomes second nature so you can focus less on turning off your signal and more on basking in the freedom of the ride.

HARMAN KARDON® AUDIO WITH BOOM!™ AUDIO FEATURES

Naturally, the king of the road gets some royal extras. When it comes to hearing your tunes or just keeping your own chatter free and easy, the premium Harman Kardon audio system has it all: 4 speakers (2 up front and 2 in back) with an amplifier that distributes 40 watts per channel, an AM/FM receiver, CD and MP3 player—even an intercom and CB. It's loud, it's proud and yeah, it might as well go to 11. Plus, new for 2012, we've improved the already awesome sound by upgrading to BOOM! Audio High-Performance BOOM! Bagger speakers with customized equalization for BOOM! audio, and added BOOM! Audio Bass Booster Tour-Pak Ports to give these blasters the room to move booming deep bass. Sure, that's a lot of boom, but we figure you can handle it.

IPOD® PORT (IPOD® INCLUDED)

Just having the juice to let loose isn't enough to call this system custom. It's your tunes that tell the story of your life on two wheels. With an iPod® dock in the right-hand saddlebag, a module integrated into the radio, and the intuitive controls right at your fingertips, the music is now yours, and that story is yours to write. We'll even throw in an exclusively-designed 8GB iPod® nano.

ROAD TECH ZuMO® 660 NAVIGATION SYSTEM

You may know where you're headed, but this little dandy helps you get more out of every mile. The quick-mount cradle makes it easy to mount and detach and it plays nice with the bike's tight lines. Designed by bikers for bikers, it's preloaded with City Navigator® NT street maps and markers for H-D® dealers, motels, restaurants, fuel, ATMs and anything else you might need while out on the road.

H-D® SMART SECURITY SYSTEM WITH SIREN AND AUTOMATIC BIKE LOCK

The factory installed next-generation security system with siren features a hands-free fob that automatically arms and disarms the vehicle electronic security functions as you approach and walk away from the bike. Stick the fob on your ignition key ring and let it do all the work. For additional peace of mind, the automatic bike lock features a key fob that locks the ignition, Tour-Pak and saddlebags so you won't have to worry about leaving your valuables tucked away on your ride. It's this attention to detail and rider security that make Harley-Davidson® motorcycles unique.

TOURING CHASSIS

A true Touring bike has to be tough enough to take on thousands of miles for years to come. Our Touring chassis is designed to do just that. Based on a single-spar, rigid backbone frame and swingarm, it easily handles the hum of that big Screamin' Eagle® engine, and it's built to last. Perfect for riders that always take the scenic route.

BREMBO® BRAKES

Confidence. Control. High-performance dual disc Brembo® brakes offer consistent stopping power. The 4-piston front and rear calipers with dual front rotor brake system is state of the art and top of the line. It's just another way The Motor Company puts a high level of detail into their bikes to give you peace of mind throughout your journey.

TUNED TO BE RIDDEN

Harley-Davidson® motorcycles are different than any other bike out on the road. There's a balance to them. The steering, the maneuverability—It's all in concert. And each Harley-Davidson® model is tuned differently to create a unique riding experience for each individual no matter which bike they swing their leg over. Let's face it, we didn't get to where we are by being like everyone else.

AIR-ADJUSTABLE SUSPENSION

With air-adjustable suspension that comes standard, you can easily adjust your ride to accommodate heavier or lighter payloads, unexpected road conditions or simply set it for how you like to roll. The lighter the load, the softer you can go by decreasing the air pressure a bit, or increase it for a more rigid ride. It's all about rider and passenger comfort and setting your bike to fit your taste—the easy way.

HEATED HAND GRIPS

When the chill gets at you, just having a little heat would be nice enough. But this is a Harley-Davidson® Custom Vehicle Operations™ motorcycle and we're all about the details. Our heated handgrips have six settings, so you can easily adjust on the fly for the heat you need with the versatility and control you come to depend on.

VENTED FAIRING LOWERS

Don't be a prisoner to the elements outside—take control of your ride with the color-matched fairing lowers on the CVO™ Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® model. Slide them open for a cooler ride or leave them fixed to fight the wind tooth and nail. Use the glove boxes to empty your pockets, ditch your phone, and ride free. When it comes to Touring, Harley-Davidson® Custom Vehicle Operations™ is all about optimal comfort every time you hunt down a horizon.

FULL-LENGTH FOOTBOARDS

Your boots were made for riding, in any way you see fit. Our full-length rider footboards boast a tried and true design that's stood the test of time. Rubber vibration isolation offers a comfortable ride every time. And heel and toe shifting makes getting through the gears quick and easy. Plus, height adjustable passenger boards add another level of comfort for your riding partner.

2-1-2 EXHAUST

Welcome to the crossroads of pure Harley-Davidson style and smart engineering. The 2-1-2 exhaust helps direct heat away from the rider and passenger, while providing ample performance, and signature Harley-Davidson rumble, and big style.

ENGINE IDLE TEMPERATURE MANAGEMENT STRATEGY

Our motorcycles are built to be ridden. A lot. So that means that rider comfort is top of mind. Always. With the Engine Idle Temperature Management Strategy (EITMS) feature, the motorcycle automatically cuts fuel and fire from the rear cylinder when idling, which helps reduce engine heat felt by rider and passenger. Best part, you can easily turn this feature on or off yourself whenever the bike is stopped.

SUSPENDED DUAL CONTROL HEATED SEAT WITH PASSENGER & RIDER BACKREST

Need help convincing someone to let you buy your CVO dream bike? Or just to come touring with you? This custom all-leather seat’s for them. Its suspended, dual control design offers the ultimate in touring luxury for rider and passenger, mile after mile. It sits low and it's trimmed in at the thighs for ultra-comfortable long-hauling. Its suspension feature acts as a secondary shock absorber. The embroidered H-D Bar & Shield passenger backrest is plush and cozy, with adjustable lumbar support. With all that plus in-seat heating, even the most finicky hangers-on will be happy to keep on going.

 

Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO)TM emphasizes exclusive styling and inspiring performance with four limited-production motorcycle models for 2012. Decked out with bold paint, gleaming chrome, high-output audio and the most-powerful V-Twin engines offered in production Harley-Davidson motorcycles, each CVO model is a rolling object of desire for the discerning motorcyclist.

Each 2012 CVO model is powered by the fuel-injected Twin Cam 110™ V-Twin, the largest-displacement engine offered in a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, rated at up to 122 ft. lbs. of torque. This engine is only available from the factory in CVO models. CVO motorcycles are customized using premium accessories and paint treatments combined with numerous items from the Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories catalog. The CVO program is often used to introduce new custom components and techniques before they are offered as individual accessories.

2012 Harley-Davidson FLHTCUSE7 CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide - Press Release 1

2012 CVO BIKES OFFER STUNNING STYLE AND THRILLING PERFORMANCE

Four Models Include New CVO Road Glide Custom; Upgraded Infotainment on All Bikes

MILWAUKEE (July 20, 2011) – Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO)TM emphasizes exclusive styling and inspiring performance with four limited-production motorcycle models for 2012. Decked out with bold paint, gleaming chrome, high-output audio and the most-powerful V-Twin engines offered in production Harley-Davidson motorcycles, each CVO model is a rolling object of desire for the discerning motorcyclist.

Each 2012 CVO model is powered by the fuel-injected Twin Cam 110™ V-Twin, the largest-displacement engine offered in a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, rated at up to 122 ft. lbs. of torque. This engine is only available from the factory in CVO models. CVO motorcycles are customized using premium accessories and paint treatments combined with numerous items from the Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories catalog. The CVO program is often used to introduce new custom components and techniques before they are offered as individual accessories. Harley-Davidson CVO motorcycles are backed by a two-year, unlimited mileage warranty.

Harley-Davidson is offering an all-new CVO model for 2012:

2012 CVO Road Glide Custom: This hot-rod bagger combines a distinctive shark-nose, frame-mounted fairing with a road-hugging, slammed profile for a look that's sure to turn heads. A high-output, amplified Harman/Kardon Advanced Audio radio features CD/AM/FM/WB and delivers 100 watts per channel to five-by-seven-inch fairing-mount speakers and two-inch dash-mount tweeters. An included 8GB Apple iPod nano connects via an interface and holder located in the right-side saddlebag. Exclusive custom features include a smoked Wind Splitter windshield; a two-piece custom seat with removable pillion and color-coordinated stitching and cover; and a color-matched, low-profile fuel tank console with illuminated CVO graphic insert. A 19-inch Contrast Chrome Agitator Custom front wheel leads this beauty down the road.

Three CVO models return for 2012 with new paint schemes and features:

2012 CVO Street Glide: A high-performance bagger with a fork-mounted bat-wing fairing, the CVO Street Glide has enhanced audio performance with a two-amp/eight-speaker system that includes speakers in the fairing, fairing lowers, and now also in the saddlebag lids. Also new is a low-profile solo touring seat with an embossed insert pattern, detachable passenger pillion and backrest pad, and Diamond Cut Charcoal engine cover inserts and instrument faces. Three new color combinations are available.

2012 CVO Softail Convertible: Detachable compact fairing, saddlebags, passenger pillion and backrest make it possible to transform the CVO Softail Convertible from touring to cruising format in minutes. For 2012, a redesigned windshield significantly reduces turbulence to the rider and integrates a Road Tech™ zumo 660 GPS Navigator with an MP3 player. Turn-by-turn voice commands play over the two-speaker audio system. The detachable leather saddlebags match the seat and passenger backrest in either distressed brown leather or black leather with reptile inserts. A welded mini-ape handlebar adds a custom touch. Electronic cruise control, keyless ignition and an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) provide touring functionality. Three new color combinations are available.

2012 CVO™ Ultra Classic® Electra Glide®: This ultimate long-haul touring motorcycle is ready to take on the most-challenging touring assignments with style. New features for 2012 start with BOOM!™ Audio High Performance BOOM! Bagger™ Speakers plus new BOOM!™ Audio Bass Booster Ports in the Tour-Pak bottom liner. These are all powered by an amplifier tuned to match the dynamics of the speakers and the motorcycle environment. An 8GB Apple iPod nano and iPod interface completes the audio package. The CVO Ultra rolls on new Mirror Chrome Chisel Custom wheels with matching brake rotors, and the King Tour-Pak features new chrome LED brake/tail lamps. The suspended, dual-control heated, two-up seat and adjustable passenger backrest have an H-D Bar & Shield monogram and pebbled pattern texture. Electronic Throttle Control (ETC), cruise control, and ABS are standard equipment. Three new color combinations are available.

 

 

 

2012 Harley-Davidson FLHTCUSE7 CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide - Press Release 2

MORE HARLEY-DAVIDSON MODELS WITH TWIN CAM 103™ POWER IN 2012

V-Rod® 10th Anniversary Edition and Dyna® Switchback Bagger Join the Model Line

MILWAUKEE (July 20, 2011) – Harley-Davidson offers more Big Twin performance for 2012 as its Twin Cam 103™ powertrain is standard equipment on Softail® and Touring motorcycle models and most Dyna® motorcycle models. Harley-Davidson will offer two new models for 2012. The V-Rod® 10th Anniversary Edition celebrates a decade of power-cruiser performance, while the new Dyna® Switchback is a convertible custom-touring motorcycle with detachable hard saddlebags and windshield. In addition, the Night Rod Special has significant updates for 2012 with refreshed bodywork and optimized rider ergonomics. Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO)TM rolls out the gleaming new CVO Road Glide® Custom, a limited-production, high-performance touring masterpiece.

Harley-Davidson believes every motorcycle it sells can be a custom of one. Harley-Davidson H-D1™ is a comprehensive offering of customization tools for the Harley-Davidson motorcycle owner. H-D1 tools include Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories listings in print and on-line catalogs, Fit Shop and consultation services at Harley-Davidson dealerships, and factory customization and Bike Builder tools on www.harley-davidson.com. H-D1 offers almost unlimited opportunities to optimize fit, function, style and performance and turn a Harley into a motorcycle that is truly personalized to its owner.

Harley- Davidson heads into 2012 with 32 models, each born of experience that spans generations and a passion for riding that will never diminish.

Highlights of the 2012 Harley-Davidson line include:

The Twin Cam 103™ engine powers all 2012 Dyna®, Softail® and Touring models with the exception of the Dyna Street Bob® and Dyna Super Glide® Custom. This engine produces up to 100 ft lbs. peak torque, an increase of approximately 6 percent over the Twin Cam 96 engine it replaces as standard power for many of these models. The Twin Cam 103 is equipped with automatic compression release. It features identifying badges on the derby cover, timer cover and air cleaner trim ring.

A Security Package that pairs Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Smart Security System with proximity-based, hands-free security fob is available for all 2012 V-Rod®, Dyna®, Softail®, Touring and CVO™ models. The Security Package is standard equipment on CVO™ models and on the Road Glide® Ultra, the Electra Glide® Ultra Limited, and the Road King® Classic. The Security Package is a factory-installed option for all other models.

The Night Rod® Special is updated with new tapered tail section, lighter-weight wheels, an inverted front fork and improved ergonomics. Harley-Davidson celebrates a decade of power cruising with the V-Rod® 10th Anniversary Edition motorcycle, finished in Brilliant Silver Pearl bodywork that evokes the anodized aluminum bodywork of the original V-Rod model that introduced the liquid-cooled Revolution V-Twin engine in 2002. All V-Rod models will carry V-Rod 10th Anniversary badges.

The new Dyna Switchback combines hard saddlebags and a windshield with the eager handling and Twin Cam 103 performance of the Dyna chassis. It's a custom-touring bike ready for a long weekend trip, until the detachable bags and windshield are removed. Then in seconds the Switchback becomes a custom street cruiser with a gleaming headlamp nacelle, five-spoke cast-aluminum wheels and a mini-ape handlebar. This convertible concept makes the versatile Switchback two motorcycles in one.

All Harley-Davidson Softail models get the performance boost of the Twin Cam 103 engine for 2012. The Fat Boy and Fat Boy Lo have a new reduced-reach handlebar for more-comfortable ergonomics. A lower, narrower seat shape places the Fat Boy rider in a new "in the bike" position. The Softail Deluxe and Heritage Softail Classic will be available with a new optional "tubeless" Chrome Aluminum Profile Laced wheel option for ease of tire replacement and repair.

The Twin Cam 103 powertrain gives all Harley-Davidson Touring models assertive power for passing. On Touring models, the Twin Cam 103 is equipped with an oil cooler. All Touring models except the Ultra Limited will offer a new "tubeless" Chrome Aluminum Profile Laced wheel option.

The Harley-Davidson Sportster® line appeals to a broad range of riders with six 2012 models ranging from the race-inspired XR1200X™ to the accessible SuperLow® to Dark Custom roadsters like the Iron 883™, Nightster® and Forty-Eight®. The Sportster® 1200 Custom can be personalized for fit, function and style with H-D1 factory customization, a process that allows customers to use the Bike Builder tool on harley-davidson.com to build the motorcycle from a selection of options that are installed as the bike is assembled by Harley-Davidson Motor Company or are installed by a dealer after the motorcycle is delivered. New 1200 Custom color options have been added to Bike Builder for 2012.

The new CVO Road Glide Custom is one of four limited-production 2012 models from Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO)TM, each turned out with bold paint, gleaming chrome, and the most-powerful V-Twin engines offered in production Harley-Davidson motorcycles. CVO Road Glide Custom is a hot-rod bagger with a frame-mounted fairing topped with a smoked Wind Splitter windshield, a high-output, amplified Harman/Kardon® Advanced Audio system, and a color-matched, low-profile fuel tank console.
