2012 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Classic

Intro

The 2012 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Classic only knows the word big. This cruising motorcycle is powerful and beautiful. Every part of the Harley-Davidson signature design has been formulated for each part to work in conjunction and improve the other systems. Since the 2012 Electra Glide Classic motorcycle is powered by the signature overhead valve (OHV), V Twin engine and has 1687.9 cc behind it we know this baby can move. Lighter pistons have been designed to improve the speed and reduce friction of the engines parts. The electronic sequential port fuel injection (ESPFI) system has been designed to give more torque at lower speeds producing push with more power. Passing or climbing hills on that adventure will not be a problem. With all of this push we need amazing stopping power too. The front brake system consists of dual hydraulic discs while there is a single hydraulic disc in the rear.

When it comes to Harley-Davidson’s high standards in terms of comfort and style. A large batwing fairing hugs the front of this motorcycle. The batwing fairing has been a staple and going strong since 1969 and doesn’t look like there is an end. A large six gallon gas tank has plenty of surface space to show off your custom paint. The handlebars have the state of the art controls. The turn signals have been designed to use angle and speed to know when to turn the signal off for you. Everyone knows the rumble of a Harley-Davidson V Twin engine when it rolls down the street and to make sure there is no rattle attached to it a rubber four point isolation system has been integrated. This not only quiets the noise but makes less shake under the seat. The suspension has been upgraded. The front suspension consists of a telescopic fork with air adjustable rebound damping while the rear suspension has dual steel swing arm shock absorbers with adjustable rebound damping and adjustable spring pre-load. Steering and maneuverability has been further improved fatter tires that have more ground surface and soft sides to grip through turns. No adventure is complete without some tunes to cruise along to. That is why the 2012 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Classic has installed a two-speaker AM/FM radio that also has CD and MP3 capabilities. Each motorcycle has been tested for comfort. Each leather seat has been designed with style and the stitching is impeccable. The distance to the handlebars has been scrutinized so the shoulder muscles are always relaxed. Making sure that you have space to travel and relax, there is 2.28 cubic feet of storage on either side of the rear wheel.

No detail has been overlooked or under scrutinized. In pure Harley-Davidson style, the Electra Glide Classic meets the highest of its standards. However, just in case this doesn’t quite fit the dream you have there are options. You might find the 2012 Electra Glide Ultra Classic, Ultra Limited, or the CVO Ultra Classic more what you are looking for.
