Talking about its styling cues, the 2022 Harley-Davidson Sportster comes with a circular headlight unlike the modern rectangular LED headlight seen in the S model. The headlight is surrounded by a bikini fairing. Other changes include a larger alloy front wheel shod with thinner tyres.
Moving to the side profile, the bike gets a revised riding position which appears to offer a more comfortable riding position compared to the Sportster S. Speaking of another distinctive style of the upcoming Harley-Davidson Sportster, it gets a curved fender and a double shock absorber instead of a single shock.
The new upcoming Harley-Davidson Sportster is expected to be powered by a liquid-cooled Revolution Max engine, which will come with a low-profile exhaust, instead of a side-mounted unit. However, it’s unclear if the top-end American motorcycle marquee will offer the Revolution Max 1250 or the 975 on this lower variant of the Sportster.
In terms of price, the price of the upcoming motorcycle will likely be significantly lower than the Harley-Davidson Sportster S, which is available on ₹15.51 lakh (Old Showroom, Delhi). However, the iconic motorcycle brand from the United States is tight-lipped about the price of its next model.
