All three of these models have unique features that distinguish them from one another and make them great options for fitting riders.

Sportster® S

With a dual-purpose chassis that incorporates the top-of-the-line Revolution Max 1250T engine, you will experience a lightweight ride with precision handling on your Sportster® S. This Revolution Max 1250T engine is liquid-cooled and has double overhead camshafts. The powertrain also implements variable valve timing to give you lots of torque and an immediate surging power band that will give you more control as you blast off. Ride modes like Sport, Road, and Rain, are available to help you dominate the road. Or, you can create your own custom ride modes with specific combinations of ABS, TCS, braking, power delivery, etc.

Other key features of this Sport motorcycle are its forward position, forward foot controls, available Rider safety enhancements, and low stance. You can choose from a range of updated Sportster® S paint colors as well. These include Bright Billiard Blue, Gray Haze White Sand Pearl, and Vivid Black. The distinctive styling of this motorcycle makes it clear that performance was at the top of the checklist during the design process. It has a high-mount exhaust system that truly sets it apart. It also has updated instrumentation with a 4-inch round transistor thin film LCD display, digital gauges, turn-by-turn navigation, and selectable ride modes.


This Sport motorcycle has a 975 Revolution Max powertrain, mid-mount foot controls, available rider safety enhancements, A2 compatibility, and a forward position. Some other primary characteristics of this Sport model are its signature air box cover, exposed dual rear shocks, offset wheels, stylish lighting, and of course, that classic Sportster® frame.

The exposed dual rear shocks provide a necessary style line and were modeled after previous Sportster® concepts. The airbox cover also has lots of Sportster® style to it and a signature H-D emblem. With offset wheels that are 19 inches up front and 16 inches in the back, you will enjoy an extra performance boost as you ride. The Nightster® also has an all-LED headlamp design, with rear lighting and bullet turn signals.
