What's It All About?
The XL1200CA Custom Limited has been introduced as a mid-year addition to the 2013 Harley-Davidson model line-up and offers customers the H-D1 factory customization package. This is a new opportunity that allows the customer to choose from seven option categories to optimize the fit, function and style of their bike to their own personal tastes. By selecting from available factory-installed wheels, handlebars, seats, paint, foot control position, security system, and engine finish, the customer can create a Harley-Davidson that is truly their own design.
What Does It Cost?
The XL1200CA Sportster is among the most-affordable of the Harley-Davidson models. You can pick up the basic version of the XL1200CA Custom Limited for a mere £9,345 on the road.
