Harley-Davidson Dyna Switchback FLD

One of the in the Dyna range, the 2012 is a 103 cubic Inch (1690cc) that can be both a tourer and a as the luggage carriers and screen can be easily, to give the bike a different look.


by an air-cooled Twin Cam V motor, the new is based on the Dyna platform, is characterised by features that a rubber-mounted engine, visible box, and exposed rear The engine features a solenoid-operated compression release function (to stress on the starter), six percent torque (for a peak of between 3000 and 3500r/min), and a stronger clutch and higher engine compensator.

Style, instruments and equipment

bike harks back to the Harleys of the 1960s, those fuelled the dreams of a generation of The seating position and handlebars are defined, allowing for a relaxed Instruments are clear and easy to A trip adjuster is located on the handlebar, and gives quick to information.

A nice addition is the selector r/min display. trip information is also time, the range in kilometres, distance A and B, and overall OD reading. The gauge is on the tank and is a replica of the cap – a bit disconcerting initially, but you get used to it

The luggage carriers are functional, but not large – my laptop fitted in but the bag didn’t. Although the Switchback 320kg it has a lightweight chassis and cast-aluminium wheels (18-inch 17-inch rear).

This has some serious torque and away quickly from a start. The engine idles at 1000r/min, making the engine barely noticeable. This was fitted with a Screaming exhaust, which backfired on a trailing throttle.

The aural experience is something to a grown man goose bumps and attention from onlookers you go.

Ride and Handling

The gearshift takes some getting to, as do the running boards, but these things do not detract from the or handling. The little mirrors are not the on a bike of this class, but you probably want to replace from Harley-Davidson’s extensive of matching aftermarket accessories Overall, a comfortable ride decent suspension that the bumps smoothly.


Like: I liked the position and the ease with this bike turns. I liked the ABS braking, which works very well.

I didn’t like the wind over 120km/h, but then this bike is a head and I didn’t mind keeping the lower than 120. speeds of 140 to 160 are attainable, but not recommended.

A solid and one I can rate highly at 8/10.
