Technical Data and Prices

Stand all the way out

Heavy-hitting style with fat tyres and an iconic peanut tank. Designed with its signature bulldog stance and 1200cc of corner cranking torque.

1200cc Air Cooled Evolution Engine

An iconic V-Twin engine that is renowned for its massive low-end torque and soul-satisfying sound. Lightweight aluminium heads and cylinders improve air-cooling efficiency.

Fat Front Wheel

Custom rubber reminiscent of the lead-sled culture. You get a beefy front end with a tall, gat MT90 tyre that gives the bike a dominating presence up front and provides a smooth ride and solid handling. 

49mm Fork with Cartridge Damping

The brawny 49mm front fork is accentuated by massive triple clamps and fork brace. We’ve also added cartridge damping technology to keep the handling crisp and confident, no matter how rough or winding the road ahead.

Iconic 7.9 Litre Fuel Tank

A classic peanut fuel tank that adds to the machine’s low, powerful bulldog look, showing off the solid mass of the engine and the rawboned style of the lean Sportster frame.
