Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying 1200 Custom

Q. I need to buy a bike for long distance rides under 13 lacs, with good Fuel Tank Capacity and ground clearance. I was considering Harley Custom 1200 for this, will it be the best?
  • Today there are a lot of cruisers around, but if you look for a relaxed rider with decent power and torque and a large tank , then it is 1200 custom indeed, there are also bike similar to the 1200 custom such as the Indian scout and triumph speed master which you can look for, both these bikes are refined and heck faster than the Harley Davidson 1200, but if your goal is a torqued , yet character filled bike with a heck of a sound and feel , and the most relaxed long distance ride, but a sacrifice for ground clearance, then hands-down 1200 custom it is, i kindly request you to take a really good test drive of all these 3 bikes and decide which one best suits for you, and then decide, both other companies also offer a modern day cruiser cum sporty driven engines like the Kawasaki Vulcan or the versys 1000 or 650, just decide which one suits your STYLE ,because that is very important, if u want an even more refined Harley then there is street bob that falls in the 13 lakh territory , consider that as well
  • No, sorry for disappointing you, Harley Custom1200 will not be a good choice for you. The low ground clearance (105mm) would be a concern on speed breakers and it should have been raised for the Indian market. Although the bike weighs in a hefty 268kg, once in motion it does manage to mask its weight rather well. But There are ample of options available like Kawasaki Z900RS, BMW R 1250 GS Adventure, Honda CRF1000L Africa Twin, Suzuki GSX S1000, Yamaha MT 09, Ducati Multistrada 950 etc.You can explore more options by clicking on the given link https://www.zigwheels.com/new_bike_search.php?byshowroomprice=500000-600000&byfueltype=petrol&sortfield=price&sortdirection=desc You can apply filters to refine your search and can shortlist some options from the lot.

  • If you are looking for only a cruiser without off roading then 1200 custom is okay. ..if looking for long distance with off road then versys 650 even though it is around 8 lakhs

Q. Is Z900 better than 1200 Custom for long tours i.e more than 750 km/day?
  • Both the bikes belong to a very different segment, the Z900 is a naked sport with slightly aggressive ergonomics whereas the Harley Davidson 1200 Custom is a cruiser with a powerful engine and muscular tussle. Moreover, we would suggest you to go for the Harley Davidson as it would be a more comfortable ride according to you the longer tours. However, we would recommend you to take a test ride of both the bikes at the nearest dealership to have a clarified perspective regarding bikes comfort, ride quality and performance.
  • Both motorcycles are good, but I will always go with z900 for long rides. 1200 custom is heavy for highway and city use. Yesterday I did 302kms ride on z900, great power, good comfort, great mileage. On a full tank I did the 300 kms, fuelled it again after reaching my destination. I also use it for daily use for city rides, butter smooth and no heating issues. Go for it you will love it.
  • Harley Davidson is cruising bike and z900 is naked sport z900 better power and milage than harley Davidson 1200 custom. I think you take a test drive of both bike. and take a design. Kawasaki z900 is better and comfortable. and light weight then harley Davidson.
