Harley-Davidson Dyna Switchback

The Harley-Davidson Dyna Switchback has proved itself with riders for a few years. Its main features are fairly obvious as hinted in its name. A quick-release windscreen and colour-matched saddlebags let you easily “switch back” from cruiser tourer to clean stylish custom and vice versa. Two bikes in one!

So when you hit the road, grab the groceries or cruise the boulevard dressed or naked. This “convertible” feature has appeared on earlier Dyna models and today’s eponymous CVO Softail model, which is among Harley’s best-selling bikes. Yet with increased interest in touring and Harley’s with built-in saddle-bags, it was only natural that a touring-equipped Dyna be added.

Low To The Ground Easy Cruise

The Harley-Davidson Dyna Switchback not only offers a low to the ground easy cruise ride, but goes from touring to cruising in but a few seconds. You can opt to use the windshield for protection from the elements on longer rides, or remove it for a free and naked look/ride.

The Switchback’s windscreen is tough. Made of durable, scratch resistant, low maintenance material.  It will handle your handling as well as the elements when underway.

The contemporary look stands out in the crowd with chrome headlamp and mini “ape hanger” handlebars. Its full fenders add to the Switchback™ models unique, classic-contemporary profile and keep the mud off during your long tours.

    My Switchback is the best of both worlds, Stable and comfortable when packed for long rides. Sassy and spunky without windshield and bags for zipping around town. I got Cherry Bomb in 2012 and she has been making me a rockstar eversince.

    Love my 2013 Switchback — 30,000 of the smoothest miles in many riding scenarios of any bike I’ve owned . . . and I’ve owned several. :)
