The 2012 Harley-Davidson FLSTSE3 CVO Softail Convertible is a limited-production custom motorcycle that can be configured for all day touring, two up cruising or solo profiling by adding or detaching key components, which can be easily removed or installed without tools.
The 2012 Harley-Davidson FLSTSE3 CVO Softail Convertible rear suspension mimics the clean lines of a vintage hardtail frame but offers the comfort of modern suspension that is hidden under the chassis. The rigid powertrain allows tight packaging of the engine and frame and creates a solid connection between the rider and the power that moves the motorcycle.
2012 CVO Softail Convertible Detachable compact fairing, saddlebags, passenger pillion and backrest make it possible to transform the CVO Softail Convertible from touring to cruising format in minutes. For 2012, a redesigned windshield significantly reduces turbulence to the rider and integrates a Road Tech™ zumo 660 GPS Navigator with an MP3 player. Turn-by-turn voice commands play over the two-speaker audio system. The detachable leather saddlebags match the seat and passenger backrest in either distressed brown leather or black leather with reptile inserts. A welded mini-ape handlebar adds a custom touch. Electronic cruise control, keyless ignition and an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) provide touring functionality. Three new color combinations for 2012 Harley-Davidson FLSTSE3 CVO Softail Convertible are available.
