A new generation High Performance Sportster
Sport is coming back to the Sportster!
Raw power in a crouched bulldog stance, inspired by the legendary XR 750 with the latest technology and a high quality finish – the appearance is successful! The Sportster S presented today is close to the prototype – designed through to the last detail, with a clear focus on performance.
The new model bears a great name. No other motorcycle has such a long tradition as the Sportster, namely 64 years. In the U.S. it was allowed to be built longer than in Europe because of the Euro 5 standard. Its name is as well known as Porsche’s 911 and the Ford Mustang, and its reputation is just as associated with freedom and adventure as these cars of strong character.
Bill Davidson and Harley-Davidson CEO Jochen Zeitz took the new Sportster S for its first spin through the Scottish Highlands. They visited the small cottage where Bill’s ancestors lived before emigrating to the USA. Here began a long history full of traditions and technical innovations, the latest offspring of which is this motorcycle.
The new Sportster S combines tradition and technology
There are four unique selling points compared to the competitors from Germany (BMW R nineT), Italy (Diavel), and USA (Indian FTR, Indian Scout) and England (Triumph Bobber). They all want to appeal to a similar target group, only at Harley-Davidson you get
- Tire pressure monitoring system
- 4″ Color TFT
- Cornering ABS
- Cornering traction control
If you want something fresh and new, if you’re tech-freaky and like to stand out from the crowd, the Sportster S should be a good catch.

The engine in the Sportster S (RevMax 1250 T) differs from the one in the Pan America (RevMax 1250) in that it has smaller valves, narrower passages and a modified combustion chamber, which provides for increased flow velocity and thus rapid gas exchange and optimum filling of the cylinder. This is particularly noticeable in terms of torque, which is increased in the lower and medium engine speed range between 3,000 and 6,000 rpm.
Optimized cam profiles and timing of the variable valve timing also make a decisive contribution to the targeted performance characteristics.
These internal changes are complemented by two external ones: Intake funnels retuned in length and shape and the optimized volume of the airbox ensure the best possible performance over the entire usable engine speed range. Also the exhaust.
Of course, all this also necessitates different mapping, at the end of which performance data of 122 hp (90 kW) and 125 Nm are achieved.
You can find all specifications and a lot of pictures in our new vehicle gallery. From August, the original Harley-Davidson Sportster S 1250 accessories such as passenger pad, mid-controls, grips, etc. should also be available in our Onlineshop.
And now the most important thing:
At the latest at the end of September this must-have on 2 wheels will be with us in Hamminkeln!
