Details Sportster S
At the mechanical heart of the Sportster S is a 121-horsepower Revolution® Max 1250T liquid-cooled V-Twin engine that boasts the signature low-end surge of torque found on traditional Harleys.
In profile, the Sportster S model looks squat and powerful, paired with subtle but useful texture, color and finish details to give it the appearance of a custom show bike. The fuel tank and rear section frame the engine as the bike’s predominant centerpiece, while the massive front tire recalls the fenderless front end of a classic bobber. Finally, the tail section, raised exhaust and slim solo seat are inspired by the Harley-Davidson XR750 flat tracker. Celebrating self-expression, riders can choose from a range of Sportster S model accessories and paint colors – Vivid Black; Stonewashed White Pearl; Midnight crimson.
The Sportster S model is equipped with a multitude of technologies such as three pre-programmed and selectable riding modes (Sport, Road and Rain) which electronically control the performance characteristics of the motorcycle and the level of technological intervention. Two custom modes can be used by the rider to create a set of performance characteristics to suit personal preferences or for particular situations. Harley-Davidson® Cornering Rider Safety Enhancements, a collection of technologies designed to improve rider confidence in unexpected situations or adverse road conditions, are designed to match the performance of the motorcycle to the traction available when accelerating, deceleration and braking, in a straight line or in a lap.
