     Model Names & Designations of Harley-Davidson®  Motorcycles  

    Have you found yourself in a Harley-Davidson dealership, browsing at the motorcycles with a
    decent idea of what your were interested in, but confused on the designation model letters
    attached to each one?  Last summer I received a phone call from our daughter, wanting to know
    what the letters meant.  I asked her "why don't you just ask the salesperson?" she stated that she
    didn't want to look stupid.  I told her that many current Harley owners don't even know the model
    letters of their own bike, let alone ALL of them, and she should not be embarrassed.  And neither
    should you!  But with this handy guide you can walk in the dealership with a little more knowledge
    of what you are looking at.

    One place you can usually find the name of the motorcycle (the model names you are familiar with)
    is on the breather, provided it is still in factory stock condition.  Also on the touring and some
    Softails you will see the name on the front fender.  But here is a list of the model letters and which
    bike they represent if you can't find it anywhere on the motorcycle.  If you have internet access on your cell
    phone you can pull this guide up while shopping!

    Harley-Davidson motorcycles are classified into 5 'families' based on the chassis.

    Sportster : Dyna : VRSC : Softail : Touring                                                                        

    The first letter denotes:                                                                        

    F = Big V-Twin Motor                  Example:  FLSTC  (Heritage Softail Classic)                                        
    X = Sportster models                 Example: XL1200C   (Sportster 1200 Custom)                                        
    V = Revolution Motor                  Example: VRSC (V-Rod)                                                        

    The second letter denotes the diameter size of the forks. (Except for the Sportster models and V-Rod models)
    HOWEVER... Harley has been known to put the Large Diameter forks on bikes and leave the designation letters as is!
    L = Large Diameter forks as used on the Road King    Example:  FLHRC (Road King Classic)                          
    X = Small Diameter forks as used on the Sportster       Example:  FXSTC (Softail Custom)
