Harley-Davidson had announced a slew of models to be launched in the next couple of years, and the Custom 1250 is one of those models. It will be based on a modular platform that will also be the base for its upcoming streetbike, and as the name suggests, will have a 1250cc engine. It will be essentially in the cruiser format, although it has a single seat that ends in a cowl that will be more at home on a café racer. Similarly, the high-mounted exhausts would look more in place on a scrambler. Then there’s the front brake – it might displace 1250cc, but HD has seen fit to provide it with only one disc in the front. Despite all this, we think it will end up being a good seller for the company in markets where it is established.
The Custom 1250 will launch in India in 2020, but we won’t see too many of them on the roads here due to its price tag and exclusivity.
