Select 2012 Harley come to Canada

From Deeley Harley-Davidson Canada

CONCORD, ON – Deeley Harley-Davidson Canada has begun facilitating the delivery of a limited quantity of the 2012 Touring, Trike and Sportster models to some retailers in Canada giving customers an opportunity to get on a 2012 Harley-Davidson model as of mid-July, with much of the riding season still ahead.

These models will also be available for free test rides as of early August, 2011 through the Deeley Harley-Davidson Canada-hosted 'Test Our Metal Program.' For information on free test ride locations and dates, please refer to the “demo ride” button on the main page of Additional 2012 models will be announced on July 20 at the Harley-Davidson Summer Dealer Meeting in Anaheim, CA.

The six 2012 Harley-Davidson Sportster models range from the affordable Dark Custom roadster-inspired Iron 883 motorcycle to the track-inspired performance of the XR1200X bike. Each Sportster model offers the heartbeat of an authentic American V-Twin engine and pace-setting style and performance.

Back for its first full year of production is the Sportster 1200 Custom bike, the motorcycle that introduced the Web-based H-D1 Bike Builder factory customization process. Using Bike Builder, customers can personalize their 1200 Custom motorcycle with the seat, handlebar, foot control, wheel, security, paint, and engine finish options of their choice, which are then installed right at the Factory. Even more Retailer-installed accessories can be added, and viewed, on the Bike Builder site.

All 2012 Sportster models will have Michelin Scorcher tires with a tread pattern designed, tested and styled specifically for the Sportster motorcycle to provide an ideal grip, an even wear and a longer life. Fifteen Sportster paint options include seven new colour choices for 2012. Side covers will be finished in either Gloss Black or Denim Black to match the finish on other bodywork. The Forty-Eight model will have a new tank graphic.

For 2012, all eight Harley-Davidson Touring models are powered by a Twin Cam 103 engine with Automatic Compression Release and an integrated oil cooler. Producing 102 ft. lbs. of peak torque at 3500 rpm, the Twin Cam 103 engine provides an outstanding performance around town and on the open road. All Touring models also feature the six-speed Cruise Drive transmission, 41.3mm telescopic front forks, air-adjustable rear shocks and Isolated Drive System for smooth power delivery. The Harley-Davidson Touring chassis has a single-spar, rigid-backbone frame and two-piece swingarm designed to deliver responsive manoeuvrability and long-haul durability. Chassis geometry and suspension are calibrated to deliver confident handling and comfort.

All Touring models except the Ultra Limited will offer a new “tubeless” Chrome Lace Aluminium Wheel option for ease of tire replacement and repair. Six new colours or colour combinations are among the 12 paint options offered within the 2012 Touring model line.

The 2012 Tri Glide Ultra Classic motorcycle brings original-equipment design, quality and service to the three-wheel motorcycle segment, based on chassis structure and geometry engineered specifically to handle the loads generated by the steering forces and weight of a three-wheel vehicle. With a deluxe Tour-Pak carrier and integrated trunk, a four-speaker/80-watt Harman/Kardon Advanced Audio System, electronic cruise control and electric reverse drive, the Tri Glide Ultra Classic motorcycle inspires confidence, passion and independence in any riding situation. The Tri Glide Ultra Classic motorcycle will be available in three colour combinations: Vivid Black, Big Blue Pearl/Vivid Black or Ember Red Sunglo/Merlot Sunglo.
