2012 Harley-Davidson Motorcycle
The word “naked” has become standard dialect in the motorcycle industry, but not so much in the cruiser segment.
But if naked were to define a cruiser from Harley-Davidson, the 2012 FXDB Street Bob would be the optimal choice. Harley redesigned the Street Bob back in 2009, keeping with the “naked” trend, giving the cruiser a no-nonsense style that attracts lovers of the bobber scene.
For 2012, Harley continues to offer the Street Bob with the smooth-running, rubber-mounted Twin Cam 96 V-Twin rated at 92 ft. lbs. of torque, mounted to a six-speed Cruise Drive transmission.
The Dyna-series Street Bob features all the bobber-influenced items, such as the exposed, rear coil-over shock absorbers, exposed under-seat batter box, a Fat BVob fuel tank, solo seat and a mini ape-hanger handlebar.
