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 '70s 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.

This 8-inch, street legal, mirror-chrome air cleaner cover makes a powerful statement that recalls the glory days of old iron crossed with a clean, contemporary look.Evolution® Engine Heritage
The Evolution® engine—known in certain crowds as the Blockhead—was first bolted to the frame of a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle back in 1984. Born from legendary Shovelhead and Ironhead engines, the Evolution® engine broke new ground in displacement innovation while maintaining the hunger for power, durability and proven reliability that The Motor Company was built on.H-D® Smart Security System
The factory installed next-generation security system features a hands-free fob that automatically arms and disarms the vehicle electronic security functions as you approach and walk away from the bike. Stick the fob on your ignition key ring and let it do all the work. It's this attention to details and security that make Harley-Davidson® motorcycles unique.Tuned to be Ridden
Harley-Davidson® motorcycles are different from any other bike out on the road. There's a balance to them. The steering, the maneuverability—it's all in concert. And each Harley-Davidson® model is tuned differently to create a unique riding experience for each individual no matter which bike they swing their leg over. Let's face it, we didn't get to where we are by being like everyone else.Forward Mounted Controls
Let your boots fall where they may, naturally to the mid-mounted controls and rider foot pegs on the Iron 883™ model. An easy reach and tight rider triangle is confidence-inspiring for new riders eager to set off on their journey and riders whose legs run slightly shorter than others.
