2012 Harley-Davidson Motorcycle

In 2009, Harley-Davidson didn’t produce a Dyna Wide Glide; the motorcycle known for its raked-out, wide front end was replaced by the Fat Bob, which arrived on the market a year earlier.

But after a year hiatus, Harley-re-introduced the Dyna Wide Glide in 2010, bikers wanting back that Easy Rider feel that the Wide Glide produces.

And Harley continues offering the retro FXDWG Dyna Wide Glide for 2012, the cruiser now featuring a 103 V-Twin, 40-spoke laced wheels, “Tommy Gun” exhaust, a sissy bar and of course the raked-out, wide front end.

Following are the highlights, specs, color options and MSRP for the 2012 Harley-Davidson Dyna Wide Glide.
