H-D® Cross Bones™ Model

    Newer Older

    I've got my eye on this bike, not sure whether I'll sell my Road King and buy this one, my Road King is a real pleasure to ride, but I love the styling on this one...we'll see what happens.

    The raw aggressive styling of the Cross Bones is no mistake. Harley is exposing a fresh, mainstream side of the venerable Motor Company. Harley looked to its knuckles and pans of yesterday for styling cues on the latest motorcycle in its Dark Custom line. The Cross Bones has the "retro look of a Springer front end and other post-war era bobber styling cues like a sprung solo seat, half-round rider footboards, Gloss Black round air cleaner cover and chopped front fender." Harley has done its homework because these styling cues are reflected in current trends in the custom building scene.

    The X-Bones is a heavy weight contender that appeals to the retro fanatic while delivering 21th century performance, I happen to be one of them...

    Available in Dark Blue Pearl, Dark Blue Denim, Vivid Black, Olive Pearl and Pewter Denim. Black starts at $16,795, while color runs $17,140.

    Key features include:

    * An air-cooled, 1,584cc Twin Cam 96B powerplant that produces 87.9 ft-lbs of torque at 2,750 rpm
    * A six-speed Cruise Drive transmission
    * An adjustable sprung solo seat that sits as low as 26.6 inches
    * Straight shot exhaust with chrome slash-cut mufflers
    * A 200mm rear tire
    * Gloss Black cat-eye tank console with a new speedometer face

    Weighing 737 lbs in "running order," the Harley-Davidson Softail Cross Bones won't be the nimblest of motorcycles, but its bobber styling cues and retro details effectively reinforce the nostalgic style that typifies the Harley-Davidson brand.

      Beautfiull bike.... and that's from one who used to ride rice burners.

      The setting is perfect... reminds me of a diner we stumbled upon at San Bernadino... On Route 66 not far from where I15 (I think) crossed over.
