Motorcycle Review: The Dina Switchback

It seems like everyone and their fitness trainer is always looking for the latest fad to drop a few pounds fast. And why not, losing weight will help you look and feel better, move faster and be more agile. What if we told you there’s a weight loss program that lets you lose nearly 100 pounds without cutting a Big Mac or jogging a mile? It is possible. Just go to your local  ducati exhaust  dealer and replace the 812* lb. Road King 718* lb. to Dyna Switchback. And best of all, with a price tag that’s $1,500 less than the King, you’re basically in BOGO mode with the Switchback, or a buy-one-get-one deal, since the Switchback is basically two bikes in one.

Of course, the idea of ​​two bikes in one Harley is far from a new concept;

 the factory has offered convertibles in the FXR, dyne and Soft ail families. What’s unique and different about the Switchback is that its 41.3mm front end, chrome headlight hood, 130mm front tire, floorboards, hard saddlebags and fully swept FL-style fenders; it looks like something from the Touring series and not just a Dyna with hard panniers and windshields. If you remove the windshield and saddlebags, it still looks part of the Touring family, just stripped down, cleaned up and sexier.

When you throw your leg over the saddle and hit the street, it becomes clear that this bike is no overweight offspring of a sofa slide. It is agile and powerful. I spent some time with the Switchback and was impressed with everything from its looks and handling to its performance, memory capacity, and versatility.

Harley engineers really did their homework

in setting up the steering and suspension to make sure the bike has the nice, plush ride of a touring motorcycle, but the handling and handling of a Dina. The geometry of the front end, the technical data of the tires and the suspension were developed together to guarantee sharp and light handling.

Inside the stout fork legs is a 20mm cartridge to help improve damping, while out back there’s a set of nitrogen-charged single-tube shocks with dual-action springs. The rear shocks are adjustable, so setting up the rear suspension for solo, dual or truck riding is easy. The upturned 130mm Dunlop provides a nice flat footprint when bombing down the road, but the tire’s low profile design helps the bike get in and out of tight corners with ease. One thing I definitely noticed was that unlike members of the Touring family, which can sometimes give unwanted feedback with a shudder when road inconsistencies interfere at high speeds and fast turns, the Switchback was stable from tire to tire.

excessive speeds, tight sharp turns and tilting during loading

and rapid cleaning. Even when I gave the mini monkey a fair push on the freeway straight, the bike consistently held its line without the rear end being Squirrelly or needing time to settle.

Backed by a 103ci engine and six-speed transmission, the Switchback can easily get where you want to go in front of this big rig. Granted, it won’t break land speed records, but with fully loaded saddlebags and a rack-mounted bag, I can easily slide past slow-moving traffic on climbs without dropping it to fifth. The Switchback is 43 pounds lighter than the Heritage soft ail Classic (761* pounds) and only 12 pounds heavier than the next heaviest, the Fat Bob (706* pounds). T

he Switchback is easy to remove from the stand,

but not so heavy that it hinders the performance or potential of the three-cylinder engine. A chrome two-into-straight-cut exhaust is attached to the right side of the rubber-mounted engine, providing a decent tone and giving the bike more performance compared to the classic look of the twin on the touring models. And unlike Touring models, which mount the exhausts behind the saddlebag stays, Harley engineers designed the rear exhaust hanger to attach to the rear of the drivetrain and move with the drivetrain. Since overall weight was a major concern, Harley opted for an aluminum rear hanger bracket over steel.

Helping to slow the Switchback down or stop instantly

are a four-piston fixed front caliper and a 300mm flat-expansion floating rotor, with a two-piston torque-free rear caliper attached to a 292mm rotor. The  ducati v2 exhaust I tested was equipped with the Safety Package option which combines an anti-lock braking system (ABS) with an intelligent safety system.
