We were just looking at it, and there is more detail....there also is a news release that tells a little about it too....

look at the belt guard, and then the front fender mounts.

Kev
Progressive 412's, 12.5" or more and a front fork kit also. Should solve the problem.

I'm not a big fan of the seat, maybe a Brawler to set me back a little more and some fwd controls (bring them to a friends shop, blast the chrome off of them and powder coat them back!!!) Hmm..sounds like a plan. Oh ya, needs smoked markers also and it's a win!

Specs anyone!!

(For Kev, cause he's picky)

5 inches shorter than the 1200c and 1200r

20lbs LESS than a 1200r (17lbs less than a 1200c)

lean angles

Nightster 30 deg/29 deg
Custom 31 deg/29 deg
Roadster 32 deg/32 deg

So, how much difference does 20lbs really make on a bike??? Looks like the BT's need to come up with a light weight now........

Definitely a step in the right direction from H-D!!!! But I agree with some others that there are better looking bikes on this forum than this one!!
IMHO.........

HUH?

overall length? no way --- besides overall the 1200C and 1200R are different lengths aren't they? Cause of that front end on the 1200C.

height? uhhhh that sounds like too much...

damn, you're gonna make me go back to the stupid website and check specs again aren't you...
