2012 Harley Softail Classic | Quick Look

2012 Harley-Davidson Motorcycle

Imagine going back to a time when long-distance tourers did not have every technological bell and whistle thrown at the rider-that’s where the Harley-Davidson Heritage Softail Classic takes you.

With a new Twin Cam 103B motor with counterbalancing to keep vibration at bay, this bag- and backrest-equipped bike has a quick-remove windshield for when local riding is in order.

Full-coverage FL fenders keeps the splash away from the rider and passenger in inclement weather, and the studded leather saddlebags expand on the authentic look.

ABS is an available option.
