DYNAS

MILWAUKEE (July 15, 2004) ~ The Harley-Davidson Dyna Glide line of factory customs grows to five models in 2005 with the addition of the new FXDC/I Super Glide Custom. Like the other members of the Dyna Glide family, the Super Glide Custom combines bold styling with assertive performance, a tradition since the debut of the first Harley-Davidson FX custom motorcycles in the 1970s. All 2005 Dyna Glide models are powered by the 1450cc Twin Cam 88 engine, rubber-isolated in a stiff chassis. Signature Dyna Glide features include a stepped seat, vertical shock absorbers, a raked FX fork and a classic Fat Bob fuel tank. Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection is available on all Dyna Glide models. A new clear-lens, reflector-optics headlight enhances the custom styling of each Dyna Glide model and offers improved lighting performance. A small Bar & Shield cloisonné appears as a detail on the lens of the new headlight.

 

FXDC/I SUPER GLIDE CUSTOM

A sprinkle of gleaming chrome lights up the new FXDC/I Super Glide Custom, which features a silver-and-chrome Twin Cam 88 engine, chrome headlight cover and speedometer housing. The console is color-matched to the fuel tank, and the fuel tank lid ring is chromed. Finally, a new low-profile seat gives the Super Glide Custom a look that's all its own.

The Super Glide Custom features a color-matched console atop the fuel tank.
The Super Glide Custom features more chrome components than the FXD/I Super Glide, including the speedo housing, headlight nacelle and eyebrow.
The new Aluminum Profile Laced wheel from Harley-Davidson features a smooth, rounded, chrome-plated aluminum rim and chrome spokes. It's offered as an original-equipment option on the Dyna Wide Glide, Sportster Custom models, and most Softail and Touring models.

SPORTSTERS

MILWAUKEE (June 28, 2004) ~ Following an acclaimed redesign in 2004, the Harley-Davidson Sportster family moves forward in 2005 with a new model, the XL Sportster 883L, and an update to the rear axle of all Sportster models. To keep up with the high demand for the new 2004 Harley-Davidson Sportster models, shipments of 2005 models will begin early, with 2005 Sportsters shipments starting June 28, 2004.

For 48 years, the Sportster has been evocative of raw Harley-Davidson performance - a narrow, nimble motorcycle powered by a classic, torquey V-Twin engine. Five models comprise the Sportster line for 2005, each powered by an XL Evolution V-Twin engine that was completely redesigned last year, with improved cooling, high-flow cylinder heads and lighter pistons and connecting rods. The engine is rubber-mounted in the frame to isolate the rider from vibration. Stabilizer links mate the engine to the frame to enhance overall chassis stiffness.

All 2005 Sportster models receive a series of component changes associated with the rear axle. The diameter of the rear axle is increased to 1.00 inch from 0.75 inch. A new swingarm was designed to accommodate the thicker axle. A new rear wheel and new rear brake caliper also are fitted to accommodate the new rear axle. The result is a five percent increase in total vehicle torsional stiffness, which the rider will feel as more precise, responsive handling in all 2005 Sportster models.

All 2005 Sportster models will also have a new headlight with clear-lens, reflectoroptics for improved lighting performance. A small Bar & Shield cloisonné is affixed to the headlight lens. In addition, the '05 Sportster family offers 18 color combinations and hundreds of Genuine Motor Parts and Accessories are available. For anyone who has been dreaming about owning a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, the Sportster family provides a variety of options, all at an affordable price ranging from $6,495 to $9,495.

 

XL SPORTSTER 883L

The new XL Sportster 883L features ergonomics designed specifically to fit smaller riders, and that makes it easier to lift off its side stand. A seat height of just 26 inches makes the 883L the lowest Sportster ever. A new solo seat has a lower cushion height than the seat on the XL Sportster 883, and the seat is also positioned further forward. New handlebars are pulled further back and are wider than those on the XL Sportster 883. Mid-mount foot controls will fit a wide variety of riders. Front and rear suspension is lowered and re-tuned to maintain precise handling while making it 40 percent easier to lift off its sidestand. The Sportster 883L will be offered in five colors, with a special tank graphic that differentiates it from other Sportster models.

To better accommodate riders with a smaller frame, the handlebars on the new XL Sportster 883L are wider and pulled further back.
