Technical Data and Prices

We've taken a long way. Now it's your turn to take it even further.

There’s a reason the word “custom” is in the name – it’s the bike for those who put a premium on making a personal statement.

For decades, the Sportster models have offered a successful synthesis of pithy power, easy handling and a sleek look. Beginners appreciate the character of the machines, as they make joining the big Harley-Davidson family easy, and experienced bikers enjoy the great driving fun they offer.
