For the 2012 model, the Cross Roads looks just how you want it with the performance credentials to back it up. Powering the bike is the popular Freedom 106 V-Twin engine that produces a mighty impressive 109 lb/ft of torque. Mated to this engine is a high-performing six-speed overdrive transmission that receives the power generated by the massive V-twin and seamlessly turns it into something you can use.
