Although not part of the Harley-Davidson Touring line, the 2017 Harley-Davidson Sportster SuperLow 1200T is a legitimate bagger—a junior partner to the Road King and Heritage Softail Classic. Built on the chassis of the Sportster SuperLow 883, the SuperLow 1200T gets the 1202cc motor for longer-distance, higher-speed running.Touring accoutrements include a 14-inch windshield (quick release), lockable saddlebags, more legroom, a touring seat for two, and floorboards. As touring often takes you onto twisting back roads, the SuperLow 1200T has a bit more cornering clearance than the standard SuperLow—while still managing a 26-inch seat height—and the Michelin Scorcher tires are designed with touring in mind. All five color choices include pinstriping.
