The bike originally broke cover as the Harley-Davidson 1250 Custom. The company gave it a very polished and intimidating look thanks to its muscular panels and meaty tires. It also features a short front fender reminiscent of classic old school bobbers. The way the raised exhaust meets the short tail gives it a look inspired by Harley-Davidson’s XR750 flat tracker.

Part of its equipment kit includes a 4-inch round TFT screen compatible with Bluetooth connectivity. It also sports an all-LED lighting package containing a Daymaker Signature LED headlight reminiscent of the unit found on the Harley-Davidson Fat Bob.

At the heart of the bike is a new liquid-cooled Revolution Max 1250 engine. This 1,252cc V-twin engine delivers 121hp of maximum power which is backed up by 127Nm at 6,000rpm. The engine runs at 9500 rpm and has variable valve timing on the intake and exhaust ports.
