The 2013 Harley-Davidson® Dyna® Switchback™ FLD model with detachable saddlebags and windshield is perfect for both cruising and touring. It’s like having two bikes in one. It sports a contemporary look deeply rooted in classic Harley-Davidson® style of the '60s. A powerful Twin Cam 103 Engine, with smooth shifting Six-Speed Cruise Drive transmission. Its light-weight chassis and cast aluminum wheels give the Switchback™ FLD model an easy-handling feel. Its 2-into-1 exhaust recalls classic Harley-Davidson® street rod styling, as do its cigar-tube rear shock absorbers, chrome headlight nacelle, fork-covers and mini ape hanger handlebars. The Dyna® Switchback™ FLD model combines touring comfort and cruising performance in a light-weight, easy-handling powerhouse. It’s a modern version of vintage H-D® style.

Your riding moods change—so let them. With its detachable windshield and saddlebags, the Switchback™ motorcycle can make the switch from cruising to touring or back in seconds. Easily take them off for a powerful, head-turning street cruiser. Re-attach them for a comfortable, light-handling tourer that definitely goes the distance. And its clean styling brings vintage Harley-Davidson® simplicity to today's roads in a look that defines classic: true to its roots yet completely contemporary. The Switchback™ motorcycle is like having two bikes in one: a union of opposites that makes no compromises.Twin Cam 103™ Engine Power
Live your ride to the power of 103. The air cooled Twin Cam 103™ Harley Davidson® engine delivers more stump pulling torque, while its Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection jetting gives crisp, lively throttle reaction. It’s a performance punch that you’ll appreciate when passing, climbing hills, or rolling with luggage packed or a passenger in back—all under that signature Motor Company rumble. And it comes at lower cruising rpm, so you ride more smoothly, with less engine vibration and better highway fuel efficiency.Artfully Hidden Technology
Harley-Davidson® leverages the latest in technology without compromising style and function. That means we hide electronics. The whole wiring harness is skillfully routed behind the jewels of the bike—the tank, engine and all the other eye-popping features you want to see. It's just another way The Motor Company goes the extra mile to give its bikes that premium, top-of-the-line fit and finish.Light Weight Chassis
You’re moving with monster power, but the Switchback™ is no monster to control. The chassis is tuned for a light-weight feel and easy handling—in fact this is the lightest custom touring chassis available in its class—so you can move and maneuver nimbly, with complete confidence, in all driving conditions. Even getting it on or off its stand is easy.Clean Detachable Saddlebags
When you’re touring, you want cargo space, big and secure. When you’re cruising, you want style, pure and simple. With its detachable saddlebags, your Switchback™ is always ready for what you want. The bags’ unique design makes it easy to load in your stuff, while their sealed, locking, hard-case exterior keeps it well-protected. And when it’s time to convert, they come off quickly, cleanly, no tools needed. And like the classic Harley-Davidson® motorcycles it recalls, the Switchback looks great wearing its bags or not. So go ahead, change your mood whenever you want—your Switchback can keep up.
