Harley-Davidson has recently introduced two new 2012 models, XL1200V Seventy-Two and the FLS Softail Slim that look in the Motor Company’s mirrors for inspiration. Newly introduced Sportster Seventy-Two is a perfect example of what the Motor Company does. It is the part of Harley’s popular Dark Custom line also features the famous Harley “peanut” tank.
Harley’s other new model, the Softail Slim, is the result of a standard Softail after a stint at Jenny Craig. Well, the performance of both bikes will be amazingly similar; the Storz may handle a bit better and be much comfortable for riding because of the seating position. The rubber-mounted, ohv 1200cc engine is equipped with a five-speed transmission rated at 73 ft. lbs with a peak torque of 3500 rpm. The new Sportster lists for $10,499 in Big Blue Pearl or Black Denim and jumps to $11,199 for Hard Candy Big Red Flake. Take a look!
