2012 Harley Sportster Custom | Quick Look

2012 Harley-Davidson Motorcycle

Functionally unchanged this year, the Sportster 1200 Custom will be known as the model that ushered in the H-D1 factory customization option.

Expanding to a number of additional models in 2012, the H-D1 process allows the 1200 Custom owner to make significant changes to his bike’s seat, handlebar, foot control, wheel, security, paint, and engine finish, even before the factory builds it.

This also makes the bike extremely versatile, as it can be anything from a feet-forward cruiser to a mid-control touring mount.
