A release from the firm said: `With the introduction of the SuperLow 1200T, Harley-Davidson opens the door to a lighter touring option-a motorcycle that combines a nimble chassis with essential touring features. Weighing in at 53.5kg less than the lightest Harley-Davidson Big Twin touring motorcycle, it is the lightest touring bike in the line-up. Its ergonomics are calibrated to offer riders from 5 foot 1inch to 5 foot 7inch height an easy reach to the ground, handlebar and foot controls.
`Thanks to the power of a 1200cc Evolution V-Twin engine, the SuperLow 1200T can run with the pack, while the rear shock absorbers offer easy pre-load adjustment to accommodate the weight of luggage and passenger on the two-up Reduced Reach touring seat.
`The rider position is three inches forward from the SuperLow 883 to make it easier to place feet flat on the ground and to reach the side stand.
`The SuperLow 1200T features the same easy-handling chassis dynamics originally developed for the SuperLow 883. Fork angle, wheel sizes and radial tyres were engineered as a package to reduce steering effort and provide responsive handling to help rider and machine glide through corners. Anti-lock Braking System and H-D Smart Security System with a proximity-based security fob and keyless ignition are also offered as standard equipment.
`The finish is premium Harley-Davidson with aluminum wheels, optional two-tone paint scheme and plenty of chrome. A detachable windshield, locking saddlebags and Michelin Scorcher 11T touring tyres are standard equipment, while docking points accommodate detachable accessory racks and backrests for ease of customisation. A new seat and control ergonomics are shaped specifically to give more riders long-distance comfort.`
