2024 Harley-Davidson Sportster S Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

REVOLUTION MAX 1250T ENGINE
Featuring double-overhead camshafts and variable valve timing, the Revolution Max 1250T is a liquid-cooled powertrain designed to give you a strong burst of power when you want it and help you stay in control while riding.

RIDER TECHNOLOGY
Choose from three pre-programmed Ride Modes—Sport, Road, or Rain—or create your own custom mode with specific settings for power delivery, engine braking, and cornering.

HIGH-MOUNTED EXHAUST
Inspired by the glory days of H-D flat-track racing, the pipes are crafted from corrosion-resistant, 304-series stainless steel and engineered to deflect exhaust heat away from the rider’s legs and the bike’s tail section.

INSTRUMENTATION
A Bluetooth-equipped, four-inch-round, thin-film transistor display shows digital gauges, indicators, ride modes, and turn-by-turn navigation when paired with the Harley-Davidson mobile app.

CHASSIS
The Revolution Max 1250T is a structural component of the motorcycle chassis, which significantly reduces overall weight, lowers the center of gravity, and improves handling.
