Harley-Davidson Sportster S top speed test proves it’s no slouch

Is the Sportster S the fastest Harley in 2022? Of course it looks like it!

Harley-Davidson revamped its popular sportster lineup last year with the introduction of the flat-track inspired Sportster S. Not only that, the American bike maker has fitted it with the new Revolution Max 1250 motor instead of the common Milwaukee 114 mill. Although it was a cruiser, Harley marketed the Sportster S as a… well, a sports bike and for a brand specializing in cruisers, that was a bold claim.

So the question of just “How fast is the Sportster S?

Harley-Davidson Sportster S Top Speed

Before moving on to the video, let us tell you that the Sportster S uses a 1250cc twin engine borrowed from the Pan America 1250. However, engine tuning focuses on low-end grunt instead of peak power, which is why the former produces 121 horsepower, 29 ponies less than the latter.

The maximum speed says

As you can see, the Sportster S registers a commendable top speed of 231 km/h (143 mph). For reference, this is comparable to the top speed of the Triumph Street Triple 765 RS. Judging by the video, we think the Sportster S is the fastest Harley cruiser in the current crop and delivers on its sporty promise.

That being said, the Sportster S’s real strength is its torque curve that allows it to pull hard no matter what gear or speed you’re in. Not to mention, it would make it super maneuverable for city driving as well as for quick overtaking. on the highway.
