Bike columnist DAVE FALL took a piece of two-wheeled history back in time on a ride from Cape Town to Hermanus - the long way round - on a Harley-Davidson Softail.

The trio of new Harley-Davidson's just dropped on South Africa would not have been complete without the inclusion of a machine for touring adventure -  the new SuperLow 1200T.

The 1200T combines a nimble chassis with essential touring features and the power to ride to the horizon.

It has a detachable windshield, locking saddlebags and Michelin Scorcher 11T touring tyres. Docking points accommodate detachable accessory racks and backrests for ease of customisation.

RUN WITH THE PACK

A new seat and control ergonomics are shaped specifically to give more riders long-distance comfort and the SuperLow 1200T can run with the pack thanks to the power of a 1200cc Evolution V-Twin engine.

The bike weighs in at 53.5kg less than the lightest Harley-Davidson Big Twin touring motorcycle - and in fact is the lightest touring bike in the Harley line-up.

The finish is premium Harley-Davidson with aluminium wheels, optional two-tone paint and plenty of brilliant chrome.

Price: From R134 450
