Sportster S Details 

At the mechanical heart of the Sportster S is a liquid-cooled 121-horsepower Revolution® Max 1250T V-Twin engine that has the characteristic low-end torque wave of traditional Harleys.

In profile, the Sportster S model appears crouched and powerful, coupled with subtle yet purposeful details on texture, colors, and finishes to give it the look of a custom show bike. The fuel tank and tail section frame the engine as the predominate centerpiece of the motorcycle, while the massive front tire recalls the fender-less front end of a classic bobber. Finally, the tail section, high-mount exhaust, and slim solo seat draw inspiration from the Harley-Davidson XR750 flat tracker. Celebrating self-expression, riders can choose from an array of Sportster S model accessories and paint colors - Vivid Black; Stone Washed White Pearl; Midnight Crimson. 

The Sportster S model is equipped with a host of technologies like three pre-programmed, selectable Ride Modes (Sport, Road, and Rain) electronically control the performance characteristics of the motorcycle, and the level of technology intervention. Two Custom modes may be used by the rider to create a set of performance characteristics to meet personal preference or for special situations. Cornering Rider Safety Enhancements by Harley-Davidson®, a collection of technologies intended to enhance rider confidence during unexpected situations or adverse road conditions, are designed to match motorcycle performance to available traction during acceleration, deceleration and braking, in a straight line or while in a turn.
