Harley-Davidson Sportster Story

Thriving on street-bred and track-based racing performance since being introduced in 1957, the nimble, fun-to-ride Sportster® family of motorcycles is an American legend. With its lightweight narrow profile, aggressive riding position, and a variety of styles from the Dark Custom motorcycle look of the Iron 883™ to the race stripe graphic and new attitude of the 1200 Custom, the Sportster® motorcycle appeals to a wide variety of riders.

 

2018 Harley-Davidson SuperLow Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Comfortable Cockpit

The low bucket seat, longer travel rear suspension, and easy-grip handlebars creates a comfortable riding position for a wide range of riders. It’s ergonomically sound and helps build confidence in all aspects of your journey—from lifting it off its side stand to handling and turning.

 

883cc Air-Cooled Evolution® Engine

Authentic Harley-Davidson style through and through, dripping with power. The rubber-mounted 883cc Evolution® engine runs hard and rides smooth for thousands of miles so you can just worry about taking in the freedom of boulevards and back streets.

 

Low Seat Height

The low, ergonomic seat provides the ultimate in handling confidence. The combination of a 25.5 inch seat height plus a narrow frame makes it easy to maneuver your ride through turns and down straights at varying speeds.

 

Emulsion Rear Shock with Screw Adjuster

Features an Emulsion rear shock with a screw pre-load adjuster that soaks up every bump the street throws your way, and easily adjusts to fit your riding style.

 

Foundation Brake System

An innovative, high-performing system that gives riders more confidence on the road and more power and predictability when you squeeze the brakes.

 

Enhanced Low Speed Maneuverability

With an 18-inch wheel up front and a 17-inch wheel backing it up at the tail end, the light-weight wheels and radial tires make handling at low speeds a cinch.
