Harley-Davidson brings the best of its long heritage of street motorcycle design to the new 2006 XL Sportster 1200L model. Blending a low seat height and mid-mount controls with the powerful torque of the rubber-mounted Evolution V-Twin engine, the XL Sportster 1200L adds another exciting option to the Sportster family. The XL Sportster 1200L has a seat height of 26.25 inches, which is 1.8 inches lower than the XL Sportster 1200R Roadster. In addition, the handlebar grips are moved back an inch further than any other Sportster model and a new two-up Badlander style seat provides a comfortable ride. The 4.5 gallon fuel tank allows the XL Sportster 1200L an extended driving range of more than 200 miles per tank. The XL Sportster 1200L is offered in eight color options, including three unique two-tone paint schemes, all with a new 3-D fuel tank graphic.

Look what just flew in under the radar. The all-new Sportster 1200 Low motorcycle. A long, low, custom street bike straight from the Harley-Davidson factory. Take a look at the chromed-out Evolution engine at the center of a narrow frame.

1200cc and mounds of torque will keep any wrist happy. The handlebar grips are a full inch closer to the rider for a comfortable ride. Combine that with a lowered suspension and mid-mount foot controls. The machine looks as good as it feels. Exclusive emblem on a 4.5-gallon tank. Chrome eyebrow over the headlamp. Black 13-spoke Cast Aluminum wheels. And a low, two-up seat just over 26” off pavement. Easier to get the boots down. Not that you’ll ever want to.
