Honda redesigns its Gold Wing from the ground up for 2018
The ultimate wide-shouldered cruiser, featuring optional H-D1™ Factory Customization.
The 2014 Harley-Davidson® Sportster® 1200 Custom XL1200C model is a true Harley® Sportster® custom motorcycle, just a little fatter and a little more custom than the other Sportster® models. The fat front tire wrapped around a 16-inch wheel gives it a cool custom look and offers nimble handling. Stylistic components including new rear lighting, chrome 5-spoke cast wheels, and an old school looking pull-back handlebar give the Sportster® 1200 Custom motorcycle unique H-D® custom style with modern motorcycle functions. A two-up custom seat gives you just enough room to bring a passenger along on your journey. The black powder-coated Evolution® 1200cc Harley® engine is rubber-mounted and air-cooled, featuring aluminum heads and cylinders for a lighter load and electronic fuel injection.Features may include:
- Fat Front End
Leading the way for the 1200 Custom motorcycle is a fat, in-your-face front end. The thick triple clamp and beefy front tire wrapped around a 16-inch 5-spoke chrome cast wheel will not be denied. Take a look and youll see the true custom character of a Sportster® motorcycle, but just a little fatter and a little more custom.
- Pure Harley-Davidson® Styling
Feast your eyes on the 1200cc Evolution® engine and theres no mistaking its roots. This is authentic Harley-Davidson® style through and through with an attention to detail you wont find from any other motorcycle company. Black powder-coated cylinders and cylinder heads are topped off with chrome rocker covers, while chrome pushrods highlight the iconic V-Twin. Its a jewel machined out of metal. Pure. Dripping with power. From the classic edge of the cooling fins to the clean lines of cases and covers—the 1200c Evolution® engine makes an ironclad statement to holding on to whats right and staying true to what satisfies the rider.
- New Foundation Brake System
Like riding itself, you can never go too far when it comes to improving a bike’s brakes. This is why for 2014 we gave the brake system of each Sportster model a complete overhaul designed to improve performance, fit and finish. We increased the size of the brake rotors from 292mm to 300mm, and added a more powerful, stylized front caliper with 34mm pistons, and stylized rear caliper to match.
- Tach and Gear Indicator Readout
Even though none of us would want to admit it, from time to time, weve all had to kick our shift lever back down to 1 to figure out what gear we were in. This year the Sportster® models get a new speedometer with a gear indicator readout and a tachometer that can be activated by your trip switch. Now youve got all the information you need to keep it in the power band at the touch of a finger.
- Michelin® Scorcher™ Tires
Provide the superior performance, sensational grip, impressive durability and excellent handling expected on a race-bred bike. The exclusive deep-cut tread design improves grip and water evacuation capability. Grip performance and durability is also enhanced by the tires rubber compounds, which use the latest generation of Michelin synthetic polymers. Under the rear rubber, aramid belts are used to stabilize your ride, which helps inspire confidence in handling.
- Forward-Mounted Controls
With the custom forward-mounted controls on the 1200 Custom motorcycle, you can kick back a little and stretch your legs for the ultimate cruise through town or across the state line. Its time to take in the open road the way you were meant to—on a two-wheeled machine that keeps it as real as you do.
