Harley-Davidson Seventy - Two

Author: admin on 13-07-2013, 10:26
Harley-Davidson Seventy - Two ENGINE TYPE: Pushrod V-twin BORE x STROKE: 3.5" x 3.812" TRANSMISSION: 5-speed WHEELBASE: 60.0 inches RAKE: 30.1 degrees SEAT HEIGHT: 26.6 inches CURB WEIGHT: 555 pounds PRICE: $10,499 Just as the Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight used the Sportster 1200 platform to create a post-WWII classic, the new Seventy-Two is designed to be evocative of the chopper era of the early 1970s. All of the visual clues are there, including a 2.1-gallon Peanut tank, mini-ape handlebars, a 21-inch front hoop (16 in the rear), lace wheels, and a healthy dose of chrome. Despite its radical look, the rake is a conservative 30.1 degrees and the wheelbase a manageable 60 inches even. A Hard Candy Big Red Flake paint scheme is stunning, and ups the price by $700.

Harley-Davidson Switchback ENGINE TYPE: Pushrod V-twin BORE x STROKE: 3.875" x 4.38" TRANSMISSION: 6-speed WHEELBASE: 62.8 inches RAKE: 29.9 degrees SEAT HEIGHT: 27.4 inches CURB WEIGHT: 718 pounds PRICE: $15,999 New for 2012, the Harley-Davidson Dyna Switchback builds on the success of the CVO Convertible. The Switchback is a custom touring motorcycle with easily detachable hard saddlebags and quick-detach windshield; it takes just a couple of minutes to transform the Switchback into a custom street cruiser. Chassis, suspension, and tires are designed to deliver light, confident handling. Cleanly styled, the Switchback uses the 4.7-gallon Street Bob fuel tank. For riding, the bend of the mini-ape handlebars with a pullback riser combine with full-length rider footboards and a two-up touring seat to offer riders all-day comfort.

Harley-Davidson Street Bob

Harley-Davidson Street Bob ENGINE TYPE: Pushrod V-twin BORE x STROKE: 3.75" x 4.38" TRANSMISSION: 6-speed WHEELBASE: 64.2 inches RAKE: 29 degrees SEAT HEIGHT: 26.7 inches CURB WEIGHT: 670 pounds PRICE: $12,999 Sparsely attired, the Street Bob is a minimalist in the Harley-Davidson Dyna line. The cropped fenders and stainless steel ape-hangers are centerpieces of the Street Bob’s appearance, and the solo seat tells you that this is for riders without encumbrances. There’s no need for the larger engine on this 670-pound ready-to-ride mount, so the rubber mounted Twin Cam 96 powerplant, which pumps out a healthy 92 ft/ lbs of torque, is more than up to the job. Dual straight-cut staggered shorty chrome mufflers go nicely with spoked wheels.

Harley-Davidson Dyna Wide Glide ENGINE TYPE: Pushrod V-twin BORE x STROKE: 3.875" x 4.38" TRANSMISSION: 6-speed WHEELBASE: 68.3 inches RAKE: 34 degrees SEAT HEIGHT: 26.7 inches CURB WEIGHT: 668 pounds PRICE: $14,849 Pushing the front end out far and wide, the Dyna Wide Glide combines the presence of 40-spoke lacked wheels and 36-degree fork angle, with traditional twin shocks and a new Twin Cam 103 powerplant. Doling out an even 100 ft/lbs of torque at 3500 rpm, the Dyna Wide Glide is stable and puts the power to the ground through a 180 Michelin Scorcher 31 tire. Also new for ’12 is an Optional Security Package that bundles ABS with a Smart Security System with hands-free security fob, as well as a choice of four colors.

Harley-Davidson Softail Deluxe ENGINE TYPE: Pushrod V-twin BORE x STROKE: 3.875" x 4.38" TRANSMISSION: 6-speed WHEELBASE: 64.5 inches RAKE: 32.1 degrees SEAT HEIGHT: 25.9 inches CURB WEIGHT: 726 pounds PRICE: $17,149 It may have a modern Twin Cam 103B motor (new for 2012), Harley-Davidson’s Smart Security System and ABS, but the rest of the Softail Deluxe focuses on vintage styling touches. Up front, you will find a deeply valanced fender, a laced 16-inch chrome wheel, and a high-profile wide whitewall Dunlop tire. As part of the Softail line, it has the look of a hard tail in the rear, but the suspension is hidden. Harley gives the Softail Deluxe a modern 26-inch seat height, making it an approachable machine for any fan of vintage cruisers.

Harley-Davidson Fat Boy ENGINE TYPE: Pushrod V-twin BORE x STROKE: 3.875" x 4.38" TRANSMISSION: 6-speed WHEELBASE: 64.5 inches RAKE: 31 degrees SEAT HEIGHT: 27.1 inches CURB WEIGHT: 725 pounds PRICE: $16,349 The Harley-Davidson Fat Boy gets three significant upgrades for ’12. Like the rest of the Softail line, the Fat Boy is moved up to the Twin Cam 103 motor. Using the balanced version, the Fat Boy has nicely modulated power pulses and a useful additional helping of low-end torque. Ergonomics have been improved with a reduced-reach handlebar that puts the rider in a much more comfortable position on the new lower and narrower seat. There is also a Lo version of the Fat Boy that drops the seat about three-quarters of an inch.

Harley-Davidson CVO Ultra Classic Electra Glide ENGINE TYPE: Pushrod V-twin BORE x STROKE: 4" x 4.38" TRANSMISSION: 6-speed WHEELBASE: 63.5 inches RAKE: 26 degrees SEAT HEIGHT: 30.7 inches CURB WEIGHT: 927 pounds PRICE: $38,249 With a name befitting a luxury vehicle, Harley-Davidson’s crack design team—Custom Vehicle Operations—has gone all out on the 2012 Ultra Classic Electra Glide. As far as differences go, the easiest to hear is the new Boom! Audio High Performance system, with Boom! Bagger front and rear speakers and a new Harman/Kardon Advanced Audio system amp that has customized equalization for the Boom! Audio system. Also new is the GTX Tour-Pak deluxe injection-molded bags holding 2.26 cubic feet and the Air-wing Tour-Pak rack.

Ducati Hypermotard 1100 EVO SP ENGINE TYPE: 2vpc L-twin BORE x STROKE: 98mm x 71.5mm COMP. RATIO: 11.3:1 TRANSMISSION: 6-speed WHEELBASE: 57.7 inches RAKE: 24 degrees DRY WEIGHT: 377 pounds When it comes to blitzing concrete urban canyons or the tightest back roads you can find, nothing beats the supermoto concept, which brings dirt biking to street riding. The Hypermotard 1100 EVO SP ramps up the supermoto idea by giving the chassis 95 horsepower to work with and 80 ft/lbs of torque. Wheelies are mandatory, and stoppies are inevitable. Weighing in at a featherweight 377 pounds dry, the 1100 EVO SP has premium Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tires that will stick or back into a corner; your wish is the Hypermotard’s command.

Ducati Superbike 848 EVO

Author: admin on 13-07-2013, 10:00
Ducati Superbike 848 EVO ENGINE TYPE: 4vpc L-twin BORE x STROKE: 94mm x 61.2mm COMP. RATIO: 13.2:1 TRANSMISSION: 6-speed WHEELBASE: 56.3 inches RAKE: 24.5 degrees WET WEIGHT: 428 pounds The Ducati 848 EVO’s Testastretta motor pumps out a claimed 140 horsepower and 72.3 ft/lbs of torque. With Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tires and Showa suspension, little of that power is wasted. Something of a stripped down Superbike with a focus on the basics, though s the Corse SE version has larger front discs and Ohlins suspension. However, the standard Superbike 848 EVO thrives on both the street and track, thanks to its simplicity and relatively easy ride.
