An All-New Revolution Max 1250T Powertrain

A High-Mount Exhaust That Delivers Flat-Track Racing Thrills

The new Harley Sportster comes with a high-mount exhaust that delivers flat-track racing thrills. Inspired by Harley-Davidson's flat-track racing heritage, the pipes are engineered to ensure maximum rider comfort by deflecting exhaust heat away from the legs and tail section. The exhaust is crafted from corrosion-resistant 304-series stainless steel that will stand up to the elements and look great for years to come. 

The new Sportster also features a race-inspired air intake that feeds cool, fresh air to the engine for increased power and performance. With an aggressive sound and sleek styling, the Sportster S is sure to turn heads whether you’re on the track or on the street. So, if you're looking for a bike that combines vintage style with an awesome Harley exhaust note, the new Harley Sportster is the perfect bike for you.

A Modern Chassis Design that Ensures Precise Handling

The new Sportster comes with a modern chassis design and dual-purpose powertrain. By eliminating the traditional frame, the new chassis significantly reduces the bike's overall weight while ensuring precise handling. The chassis is designed to be super rigid with a lower center of gravity to improve performance on the road. It also has premium dual Brembo M4.32 monobloc front brakes with new lightweight hollow 4-piston calipers. 

A cornering ABS feature also comes standard with the newest Harley Sportster to help you confidently navigate turns at speed by modulating brake pressure to prevent wheel lockup if you underestimate a turn. A new Michelin Scorcher 31 130/80 R17 60V front tire and new Michelin Scorcher 31 180/55 R17 80V rear tire work in harmony with Showa 49mm forks and rear shocks to enhance grip in all conditions while still providing dynamic cornering ability and low-effort steering at slow speeds. 

Choose Your Ride Mode With Rider-Assist Technology

The new 2022 Harley Davidson Sportster comes with the latest rider-assist technology. This new technology offers three Ride Modes (Sport, Road, and Rain) and the opportunity to create a custom mode. This allows you to tune your new Harley Sportster's power delivery, Cornering Enhanced Anti Lock Braking System (C-ABS), engine braking, and Cornering Enhanced Traction Control System (C-TCS) settings. 

With these pre-programmed modes, riders get to enjoy the best possible experience while riding the new Sportster. Whether you're looking for a relaxed ride or an adrenaline-pumping experience, the new Sportster S has you covered. Plus, with the new TFT touchscreen display, riders have access to all the information they need while on the go. This new display is easy to read and navigate.
