Authentic 1970s chopper attitude meets modern power and premium H-D® styling in this bare-bones, low rider-inspired radical custom.
The 2013 Harley-Davidson® Sportster® Seventy-Two® model XL1200V is a bare-bones radical custom motorcycle. From front to rear, the Seventy-Two sports a bold, vintage look that recalls classic bobbers and the styling of 1970s choppers. New for 2013, the XL1200V Sportster Seventy-Two model comes with optional Hard Candy Custom™ paint, a large metal flake paint finish that recalls the iconic styling of 1970s custom bikes, and offers blazing color showing through a deep, rich finish. With its large metal flake paint, peanut tank, round retro-style air-cleaner cover, ape-hanger handlebars, and brilliant whitewall tires, the Sportster Seventy-Two model boasts a one-of-a-kind custom style that's full of attitude. And the Seventy-Two is uniquely priced to be an incredibly attractive value. No other bike in its class offers so much no-nonsense retro attitude and modern high-end style at such affordable cost. The Harley Seventy-Two model is a masterful mix of vintage bobber and contemporary retro-chopper styling. Its powerful Evolution® engine gives it impressive road muscle. The XL1200V's big-flake paint on the fuel tank is eye-catching, expressive, and of the highest Harley-Davidson quality. Forward-mounted controls make the Seventy-Two model XL1200V comfortable for cruising across town. The H-D XL1200V model is an attractively priced bike that brings the best of modern chrome eye-appeal to an aggressive, old-school chopper attitude. The Seventy-Two screams high-end custom, at a price that makes it truly accessible.
