2012 H-D FXDB Dyna Bob

Don’t expect any apologies or from Harley-Davidson ’s FXDB Bob. one of five Dynas for 2012. This is a straightforward, motorcycle that mixes styling features like fenders, miniapehanger handlebars, exhausts, and a solo seat to a showroom custom that the blue-collar attitude of a homebrew hot You want in your face

You got it with this boulevard that looks like it was to brawl on the unruly streets of or Detroit, not scoot gaily Los Angeles’ lofty Wilshire or in Chicago’s fashionista Miracle

The Street Bob isn’t a newcomer to the family either. It was originally in 2006 when Harley-Davidson introduced the first-generation of its six-speed Drive transmission. The pair has well together, too. The Drive’s fifth-gear fiasco was

addressed in 2010 to squelch the malicious-sounding gear noise irritated customers so, and the Bob only got when the 96″ debuted in 2007 to the bike more streetfighting

Oddly, though, while of the Harley family members since fattened themselves on the new engine for 2012, the Street Bob and Super Glide Custom the 96″ engine. No official reason was by members of the Motor Company for decision, so you can only assume engineers were confident the 637-pound-dry FXDB (and Super Glide Custom) require the added engine or perhaps there were so leftover TC 96 parts in the bin that the way to use up the supply was to earmark them for the two models for 2012.

No matter, even with the 96″ engine, the Bob scoots along just when you dig your spurs its flanks. Our low-gear acceleration figures revealed a 3.1-second from 20 to 50 mph while in second and Bob took 4.2 seconds to gallop 50 to 80 mph while in fifth gear. performance figures are comparable to you can expect from any of the Big Twins by the 103″ engine package, so the 7″ seems to be nullified by the weight which favors the two low-priced MSRP for either bike) models.

In the process, expect to achieve the same advertised 43 mpg fuel figure with your Bob. Our test bike nearly 41 mpg, and that was some spirited riding our acceleration tests.

Either of fuel mileage figures, with the 4.8-gallon gas tank, the Street Bob an effective range of 200 miles.

For the most part, that ride will be pleasant. The is firm, thanks to the stout fork legs and adjustable coil-over shocks, and steer-in for is surprisingly easy, even the high handlebars.

The Michelin tires offer a smooth while cruising the freeway, and grip through the corners is good even though not much cornering clearance in of the bike’s hardware scraping the if you become too aggressive at tilting the Ride the Street Bob as it’s — as a boulevard … — and you shouldn’t any unpleasant surprises or disappointments. In you’ll feel like, a badass as you motor down the because the seating position you feel that way.

the Street Bob’s ergonomics set you in a relaxed riding position — the bars place your slightly lower than shoulders when you stretch to the hand grips, and the mid-controls you to sit more upright so there’s stress on your lower (as compared to riding with controls). Taller riders find the mid-controls to be too confining, and with a static seat of 25-1/2″, the FXDB seems agreeable to riders with inseams. Just as there’s a why there’s chocolate and vanilla ice there’s a reason why Harley-Davidson offers the Dyna Wide with forward controls — something for everyone.

Regardless of which particular suits your riding there’s no denying that the Street Bob offers styling reflects the heart and soul of the biker. This is a motorcycle you expect to see in the parking lot of the local mill or lumber yard.

A little dust and soot on the Denim paint and its wrinkle-black cases doesn’t tarnish the bad-boy image in the least, and the seat tells you this belongs to a lone wolf who will detour after to the neighborhood bar to unwind with an beverage or a local label heading home. Clearly, bike represents middle-class and the rustic tank medallion underscores that fact.

for the spoke-laced black rims, 6″ headlight, and limp-sausage taillight. You can order the ABS option, which our had, offering controlled braking from 30 mph to a … in 28′. The dual staggered offer a pleasing baritone note, and the 96″ fuel-injected engine faultless from the moment you the starter button to the time you gently click the Cruise transmission into sixth and settle back for the ride.

And at some point in your aboard the FXDB, you just feel a little closer to biker roots. The Street Bob has a way of that. AIM
