Harley-Davidson Iron 1200 Sportster Launched in Malaysia – From RM74k
Harley-Davidson of Petaling Jaya is expanding its Sportster lineup for the Malaysian market with the launch of the new Iron 1200.
The bike comes with new multi-coloured stripes on the fuel tank, along with 70s inspired formal typeface, colour and graphic elements. Fuel tank colour options include Vivid Black, Twisted Cherry and Billiard White.
The satin-black Mini Ape handle bar is an essential element of the garage-built chopper look, and so are the all-black 9-spoke wheels measuring 19-inch front and 16-inch rear. The wheels are wrapped in high-performance Michelin Scorcher 31 tyres.
Powering the Iron 1200 is a 1202cc Evolution 1200 V-Twin engine that delivers 36 percent more torque (98.9 Nm vs. 72.9 Nm) than the 883 Evolution engine that powers the Iron 883.
The engine is said to bring more low-end torque to blast away from green lights as well as more mid-range power to muscle through traffic.
The entire powertrain has been styled with a popular colour: black upper and lower rocker boxes, black exhaust and muffler shields, and black timer, primary and derby covers. Chrome pushrod tubes and tappet covers are the only brightwork available on the unit.
As for other equipment, the Harley-Davidson Smart Security System and anti-lock braking system (ABS) are available as factory-installed options.
