2012 Harley Blackline | Quick Look

2012 Harley-Davidson Motorcycle

The Harley-Davidson FXS Softail Blackline is a serious attitude machine.The focus is on appearance of the bike and presentation of the rider-function follows form.

There are plenty of Harleys that handle better, but few that capture the bad boy image better than the Blackline.

Feet and fists lead, with the new-for-2012 Twin Cam 103B engine adding thrust, sound, and feel.

Not a freeway or long-distance cruiser, this is a serious urban bike for making your way to your favorite watering hole where you can proudly park the machine out front.
