Sportster Forty-Eight
Features
Sportster Forty-Eight 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.

Sportster Forty-Eight wheel

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

Sportster Forty-Eight front

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

Sportster Forty-Eight rear

Features an Emulsion rear shock with a screw pre-load adjuster that soaks up every bump the street throws your way, and easily adjusts to fit your riding style.

Sportster Forty-Eight spoke

A set of black hardcore rims with added machined highlights to set off the design. They’re built of lightweight cast aluminium, so even with the plentitude of fat black rubber rolling underneath the ride feels light and nimble.

Sportster Forty-Eight brake

An innovative, high-performing system that gives riders more confidence on the road and more power and predictability when you squeeze the brakes.

Sportster Forty-Eight fuel tank

A classic peanut fuel tank design 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.
