2012 Harley Switchback | Quick Look

2012 Harley-Davidson Motorcycle

New for 2012, the Harley-Davidson Dyna Switchback builds on the success of the CVO Convertible.

The Switchback is a custom touring motorcycle with easily detachable hard saddlebags and quick-detach windshield; it takes just a couple of minutes to transform the Switchback into a custom street cruiser.

Chassis, suspension, and tires are designed to deliver light, confident handling. Cleanly styled, the Switchback uses the 4.7-gallon Street Bob fuel tank.

For riding, the bend of the mini- ape handlebars with a pullback riser combine with full-length rider footboards and a two-up touring seat to offer riders all-day comfort.
