2012 Harley-Davidson Motorcycle

Harley-Davidson designed the 2012 FXDC Dyna Super Glide Custom with a specific type of rider in mind – one who prefers low and classical styling with just a touch of modifications.

This gives the rider a platform to build customize a bit, or leave it stock for no-nonsense styling. This styling arrives through a Fat Bob fuel tank, Laced wheels and mini pull-back handlebars that expose the clean look on the front end and the tank-mounted speedometer and ignition console.

And of course all the fun can be felt through the throttle from the Twin Cam 96 engine hooked to a 6-speed Cruise Drive transmission.

Following are the key features, specs, color options and MSRP for the 2012 Harley-Davidson Dyna Super Glide.
