Harley-Davidson is gearing up for the upcoming introduction of a new motorcycle. The company has unveiled a teaser for a new Sportster variant that will be released on April 12.

The new Sportster will feature a circular headlight up front with a bikini fairing around it. This design will be quite different from the modern looking rectangular LED headlight featured on the ‘S’ model. Along with these updates, there will also be other visible changes to the bike, including a larger alloy front wheel shod with thinner tyres. The bike will also feature a revised riding position which may be more natural compared to the sportier position of the ‘S’ model. The new, lesser Sportster will also get a curved fender and twin shocks instead of a monoshock.
The teaser also hints at the company’s Revolution Max liquid-cooled engine with a low-slung exhaust pipe. However, it remains to be seen if the bike will come with Revolution Max 1250 or the 975 unit.
