THE SPORTSTER® HAS SEEN A LOT OF REFINEMENT OVER THE YEARS, BUT ONE LOOK AT THE NEW MEMBER OF THE FAMILY TELLS YOU THE KNUCKLES ARE STILL BARE.
The dark recesses of the Sportster® soul are still intact. Check out the old school fork gaiters. The drilled metal pieces. The rear fender is chopped and clean, thanks to new stop-turn tail lights and a side-mount license plate. A low suspension puts the seat at just over 25", right for prowling back alleys. And because a clenched fist hits only as hard as the muscle behind it, the Nightster™ gets the 1200cc Evolution® V-Twin engine, Rubber-mounted in the narrow, nimble Sportster® frame and finished with shades of dark. In other words, it'll put the edge back on a blade.
