2012 Harley-Davidson FLTRX Road Glide Custom Review
Classic touring invigorated by a slammed design and custom hot rod bagger style
The Road Glide® Custom is a tough, low version of the shark-nose Harley-Davidson classic, with a big 18-inch front wheel, a 2-into-1 exhaust, and a smooth tail light assembly. The Road Glide® model had long been known as the “tourer’s touring bike.” It introduced the world to the unique “shark nose,” framemounted fairing. The Road Glide® Custom takes that unique, wind-splitting design and gives it a slammed, custom appearance. It’s undeniable that the frame-mounted fairing design gives the Road Glide Custom outstanding handling properties.
With a lowered suspension, large 18-inch front wheel, shorty, smoked wind deflector, colormatched saddlebag latches and custom rear fascia and taillight, the Road Glide® Custom brings true attitude and style to that renowned handling. CLASSIC FUEL TANK
