Authentic Styling

When the first Sportster® motorcycle roared onto the scene in 1957 the world had never seen anything like it. Rawboned, powerful and looking for action. The styling cues that lit up the street in those early years would soon become a part of everything from race bikes to outlaw choppers as they spread throughout the motorcycling world. Take a look at the offering for 2017 and one thing becomes instantly clear. The best way to get the style that made the Sportster® motorcycle famous is to get a Sportster® motorcycle of your own. The narrow frame is more agile than ever. The rumbling V-Twin and muscular front end feel more powerful than ever. The flawless steel and jewel-like fuel tank reveal their authentic American motorcycle roots in every inch of detail.

Handling

The street is the home turf of the Sportster® motorcycle, and a narrow, agile frame wrapped around a strong V-Twin engine has always been its calling card. To see how far we've taken this basic equation, get in the saddle of any 2017 Sportster® model. Trust us, the list of constant innovations and refinements you experience on the Sportster® motorcycle of today is more than you want to read about here. The latest innovation includes suspension on every model, with cartridge emulsion rear shocks and a screw adjuster to further dial in the handling. It all feels tight and right, bringing confidence to the ride and a grin to the rider. Whether you're rocketing to the next stoplight, threading through the urban grid, or busting out of the city limits to parts unknown.

Comfort

You might look at the raw-boned style of a Sportster motorcycle and not immediately think of comfort. That would be a mistake. Sink into the seat of any 2017 Sportster® model and you discover a premium ride hidden under all the lean and mean styling. The engine is rubber-mounted to the frame, so you feel all the power of an Evolution V-Twin but none of the vibrations. The handlebar hits your fists and the pegs hit your boots just the way they should. Even better, we've made improving comfort for the Sportster® rider our marching orders. With a wrench tucked inside the seat to adjust the rear suspension exactly the way you like it, these are some of the most versatile motorcycles to ever hit the street.
