    Default 2012 Harley-Davidson Seventy-Two and Softail Slim Preview

    In early February, Harley-Davidson unveiled two new “mid-year” models, the 2012 XL1200V Seventy-Two and FLS Softail Slim, at Southern California biker hotspot Cook’s Corner. The Seventy-Two is part of Harley’s popular Dark Custom line, which also includes the Iron 883, Nightster, Forty-Eight, Street Bob, Fat Bob and Blackline.

    Harley-Davidson has just released two new 2012 models that look in the Motor Company’s mirrors for inspiration, the XL1200V Seventy-Two and the FLS Softail Slim. The Seventy-Two represents the disco era when skinny choppers with fat metal flake paint jobs were vogue, while the Softail Slim evokes a period when bobbed FLs were the hippest things on two wheels.
