2013 Harley-Davidson FLD Dyna Switchback Features and Benefits

The Dyna® Switchback is a custom touring motorcycle with detachable hard saddlebags and quick-detach windshield. Remove those components in just seconds to turn the Switchback into a custom street cruiser. Chassis, suspension and tires are engineered to deliver light, confident handling.

The Switchback is the lightest custom touring motorcycle in its displacement category. Its styling evokes a classic proportion and clean, straightforward lines. The bend of the mini-ape handlebar and its pull-back riser combine with full-length rider footboards and a two-up touring seat to offer most Switchback riders all-day comfort.

• Rubber-mounted Twin Cam 103™ engine with 103-cid (1690cc) with Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI) is rated at 100 ft. lbs. of torque at 3500 RPM
• 6-speed Cruise Drive® transmission
• Exposed under-seat battery box
• Exposed rear coil-over shock absorbers


Convertible Features, Classic Styling

Your riding moods change—so let them. With its detachable windshield and saddlebags, the Switchback motorcycle can make the switch from cruising to touring or back in seconds. Easily take them off for a powerful, head-turning street cruiser. Re-attach them for a comfortable, light-handling tourer that definitely goes the distance. And its clean styling brings vintage Harley-Davidson simplicity to today's roads in a look that defines classic: true to its roots yet completely contemporary. The Switchback motorcycle is like having two bikes in one: a union of opposites that makes no compromises.

Cast Aluminum Wheels with Full Wrap Fenders

These full fenders do more than keep the mud off during your long-hauls—they add to the Switchback model's unique, classic-contemporary profile. And neither are the 5-spoke hot-rod wheels just for show: they may be eye-catching, but their cast aluminum construction and balanced engineering enhance the bike's confident handling.

Heritage Detailing

The Switchback model's classic retro features have a contemporary look that’ll never be lost in the crowd. From its hallmark headlight nacelle and its mini “ape hanger” handlebars, to its chromed-out fork covers and tank console with 5-inch speedo. This bike makes a modern visual statement that’s truly rooted in Harley-Davidson heritage.

Premium Paint

Up to two times thicker than the competition, custom quality paint comes standard on all Harley-Davidson® motorcycles. Clearcoat layering up to five mils deep. Bigger metal flakes. Unique effects. Skimping simply is not in our vocabulary.

Hand Finished Fuel Tank

All Harley-Davidson® fuel tanks are finished by hand—that's what makes them stand out. 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 sure it's a sight they'll remember.

Twin Cam 103™ Engine Power

Live your ride to the power of 103. The air cooled Twin Cam 103 Harley Davidson® engine delivers more stump pulling torque, while its Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection jetting gives crisp, lively throttle reaction. It’s a performance punch that you’ll appreciate when passing, climbing hills, or rolling with luggage packed or a passenger in back—all under that signature Motor Company rumble. And it comes at lower cruising rpm, so you ride more smoothly, with less engine vibration and better highway fuel efficiency.

Twin Cam 103™ 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 Twin Cam 103 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®, Twin Cam 88® and Twin Cam 96™ 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.

Twin Cam 103™ Engine Innovation

Fire up the Twin Cam 103 engine and feel the low-end torque unleashed. Thanks to the lightweight piston design, delivery of the added power is more refined than ever. Then put your foot on the shifter and feel how the engine and Six-Speed Cruise Drive® transmission were designed to work together. 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 103™ 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. Black powder-coated heads and cylinders are highlighted by machined cooling fin tips and polished rocker covers. 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 103 engine makes an ironclad statement about holding on to what's right and staying true to what satisfies.

Six Speed Cruise Drive® Transmission

You want a ride that rumbles—not begs for mercy—when you lean on it a little. The Six-Speed Cruise Drive 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.

Artfully Hidden Technology

Harley-Davidson leverages the latest in technology without compromising style and function. We keep the electronics hidden by skillfully routing much of the wiring harness inside the bike's frame, keeping it out of sight behind its true jewels—the tank, engine and all the other eye-popping features you want seen. 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

Along with self-canceling turn signals that, based on the bike's speed and angle, know how long to stay on, the Switchback motorcycle offers a new Flash-to-Pass switch and an the odometer trip-reset, all right at your fingertips. All these controls are incredibly intuitive, so engaging them becomes second nature quickly, letting you focus less on turning switches and more on the freedom of your ride.

Anti-lock Brakes (Optional)

Our anti-lock brakes give “stopping power” a double meaning. We keep our ABS components tastefully hidden within the wheel hub, so you'll turn heads with clean, streamlined design. But more importantly, you get certainty in the saddle knowing your bike's going to behave when you need it.

H-D™ Smart Security System (Optional)

The factory installed next-generation security system 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. It's this attention to detail and security that make Harley-Davidson motorcycles unique.

Light Weight Chassis

You’re moving with monster power, but the Switchback is no monster to control. The chassis is tuned for a light-weight feel and easy handling—in fact this is the lightest custom touring chassis available in its class—so you can move and maneuver nimbly, with complete confidence, in all driving conditions. Even getting it on or off its stand is easy.

Cartridge-Style Front Fork

Authentic throwback styling's easy on the eyes, but you want to be sure you're riding with state-of-the-art comfort and confidence. And the Switchback's beefy cartridge-style front fork give you top-notch smoothness whether you're blazing the blacktop across town, long-hauling to the next state, or just prowling a parking lot.

Adjustable Cigar Tube Rear Shocks

The classic-style suspension covers may add to the Switchback's vintage Harley-Davidson style, but the modern technology they’re wrapped around delivers a ride that feels anything but old school. Oil immersion damping control gives a smooth, quality ride that makes it easy to go the distance. And preload can be adjusted with just a spanner wrench, so you can easily switch your suspension to suit your riding style, touring or cruising.

Tuned to Be Ridden

Harley-Davidson® motorcycles are different from 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.

Clean Detachable Saddlebags

When you’re touring, you want cargo space, big and secure. When you’re cruising, you want style, pure and simple. With its detachable saddlebags, your Switchback is always ready for what you want. The bags’ unique design makes it easy to load in your stuff, while their sealed, locking, hard-case exterior keeps it well-protected. And when it’s time to convert, they come off quickly, cleanly, no tools needed. And like the classic Harley-Davidson® motorcycles it recalls, the Switchback looks great wearing its bags or not. So go ahead, change your mood whenever you want—your Switchback can keep up.

Detachable Windshield

Go from touring to cruising in a heartbeat. Attach the windshield for protection from the elements. Or detach it in seconds for a new look and ride. The Lexan® screen is as tough as they come—durable, scratch resistant, low maintenance. And whether you choose to cruise or keep the shield on, your Switchback rules with a style and versatility you can make your own.

2-into-1 Exhaust

Recalling the bold pipe style of classic Harley-Davidson® motorcycles, the 2-into-1 exhaust helps direct heat away from you and your passenger while delivering powerful performance—not to mention that signature Harley-Davidson rumble every time you crack the throttle.

Full-Length Rider Footboards

Your boots were made for riding, in any way you see fit. Our full-length footboards boast a tried-and-true design that's stood the test of time. Plenty of foot positions for your taste and comfort. Rubber vibration isolation for a comfortable ride.

Two-Up Seat

Nostalgic style meets contemporary sleekness and comfort in this deeply contoured, narrow-necked bucket. This saddle relieves pressure on your thighs, while providing back support and comfort, along with plenty of room for your friend to ride along. Additionally, premium stitching accentuates the advanced ergonomics with that sharp detail you only find on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle. It's science in service of comfort, for the short cruise and the long haul.

Seat Engineering and Design

The seat is home for Harley-Davidson® motorcycle riders. They want a seat that has unique style without sacrificing comfort. Because of that, Harley-Davidson invests a lot of time in researching, designing and testing seats so that every bike has just the right saddle.

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 rear cylinder when idling, which helps reduce engine heat felt by rider and passenger. This feature can easily be turned on by your dealer.

Hard Candy Custom elements include "big flake" paint finishes, three of which will be selectively offered as a solid-color option on five Harley-Davidson production motorcycles for 2013.

H-D1 Factory Customization expands with the Street Bob joining the 1200 Custom as Harley-Davidson models in the web-based program that allows customers to select factory-installed options in more than 2,000 combinations, build a bike on the screen, and then order it through an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer.

More than a century of experience, knowledge and riding passion lies behind each 2013 Harley-Davidson.

Highlights of the 2012 Harley-Davidson line include:

Ten Harley-Davidson models are offered as 110th Anniversary Editions, each serialized and featuring exclusive paint and commemorative solid bronze fuel tank badges. Production will vary by model and will be strictly limited to ensure exclusivity. These models come with all available factory-installed options as standard equipment. (See separate release for more details on the 110th Anniversary Editions.)

The Harley-Davidson® Street Bob® gets a tougher profile for 2013 with new blacked-out triple clamps and powertrain, and a chopped rear fender with side-mounted license plate and stop/turn/tail lights. This rowdy Dyna bobber features a solo seat and mini-ape handlebar mounted on new risers that make it easier to customize the Street Bob. New paint options include Hard Candy Custom metalflake and a scalloped two-tone option. (See separate release for more details on the 2013 Street Bob.)

The Street Bob serves as a great starting point for customization, and now along with the 1200 Custom it can be personalized through H-D1 Factory Customization with options selected by the customer using the online Bike Builder on Harley-Davidson.com, and installed as the motorcycle is assembled by the Harley-Davidson Motor Company. By choosing from different wheels, paint and engine finishes, the customer can dramatically alter the look of the motorcycle. Different combinations of foot-control location, seat choices and handlebar can be selected to adjust the fit of the motorcycle to rider stature.

Hard Candy Custom embraces a trend that's reemerged from garages around the globe. Now the sparkle of Hard Candy Big Red Flake, Hard Candy Lucky Green Flake and Hard Candy Coloma Gold Flake can be ordered as Original Equipment paint and serve as the foundation for personal customization. At least one Hard Candy Custom color will be offered on these Harley-Davidson motorcycle models: Seventy-Two , Street Bob®, Blackline®, Softail® Deluxe, and Forty-Eight . New and recently introduced Genuine Motor Accessory and Harley-Davidson® MotorClothes® items extend the Hard Candy Custom theme. (See separate release for more details on Hard Candy Custom.)

The 2013 CVO series of limited-production premium custom motorcycles features the new CVO Breakout®, a bold Softail® model that takes production motorcycle finishes to a new level with two paint schemes that feature hand-polished steel sections on the fuel tank and fenders. The CVO Road King® offers the first factory-installed Road King® audio system, and the new detachable Vented Wind Splitter windshield. The super-premium touring CVO Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® and shark-nose CVO Road Glide® Custom bagger return with new features for 2013. (See separate release for more details on the 2013 CVO line.)

The versatile Harley-Davidson® Sportster® line includes five models, plus the Sportster® 1200 Custom Anniversary Edition. New colors and graphics are offered on all Sportster® models.

The traditional "hard tail" lines of the Harley-Davidson Softail® platform are offered on six models, including the Softail® Slim , a back-to-basics 1950's-style bobber introduce mid-year 2012. The 2013 Fat Boy® now features Mirror Chrome Aluminum Bullet Hole Disc wheels as standard equipment. The Softail® line also includes Heritage Softail® Classic Anniversary Edition and the Fat Boy® Lo Anniversary Edition.

Eight Harley-Davidson® Touring models, from the slammed-and-trimmed Street Glide® to the fully equipped Electra Glide® Ultra Limited, are ready to tackle the long road with fresh color and graphics options. The Road King® Anniversary Edition and Electra Glide® Ultra Limited Anniversary Edition are available in limited quantities for 2013.
The smooth-handling 2013 Dyna® line includes the re-styled Street Bob and four more models, plus the Super Glide® Custom Anniversary Edition.

The aggressive Harley-Davidson® V-Rod® power-cruiser line features the Night Rod® Special and V-Rod Muscle®, each available in new colors for 2013.

Riders looking for a Trike option with Harley-Davidson quality can turn to the Tri Glide® Ultra Classic®, also available Tri Glide® Ultra Classic® Anniversary Edition to celebrate a milestone.
