Harley-Davidson's 1200 Custom is a mid-year addition to the 2011 lineup (like the just-announced Blackline) that's either music to the ears of budget-minded buyers, or yet another reason to slam Harley for re-shuffling styling cues and heralding a so-called new bike.


Launching Harley's new 'H-D1' customization program, the 1200 Custom starts at $10,299 and aims at empowering buyers by offering seven ways to switch-up the bike's setup. Wheels, handlebars, seats, paint, foot control position, security system, and engine finish can be optioned, ranging from zero dollars (for a solo seat) to $640 (for multiple option custom paint.) Look past its chunky Michelin Scorcher tires, and you'll find the usual underpinnings, including a 1,200cc v-twin that produces 79 ft-lb of torque, a big 4.5 gallon fuel tank, and a low seat height of 26.6 inches.


I'm guessing that though the new 1200 Custom will undoubtedly fuel the fire of H-D critics, it will also bolster the Motor Company's bottom line, given the strong sales of relatively affordably-priced Sportsters of late. But perhaps a deeper question lurks: does Harley have anything more-- um, revolutionary lurking up their sleeve? Take a look at this 2011 Harley-Davidson 1200 Custom Photo Gallery, and share your thoughts.
