When it comes to practical transport, baggers are hard to
beat - which is why hard-bagged FL models are consistently
Harley-Davidson's best sellers. But sometimes you just want
the clean, classic cruiser look, without any complications..
That's why we love the new Switchback so much. With a
removable windshield and saddlebags that can be stripped off
in less than 30 seconds without tools, you don't have to
choose between boulevard cruiser and mile-eating tourer. And
because it's based on the smaller, lighter Dyna chassis, the
Switchback is also more fun to hustle through a set of
switchbacks than any full-time bagger. The 718-lb.
Switchback weighs fully 100 lbs. less than a Road King, yet
offers the same comfort and is powered by the same
103-cubic-inch Twin Cam engine putting down 94 lb.-ft. of
torque. Acceleration is very satisfying! The Switchback
looks great, too, with a cool '60s vibe enhanced by fIve-spoke
mag wheels that look like they came off a classic musclecar.
