HIGH­LIGHTS Sport­ster 1200 plat­form Café racer rid­ing po­si­tion Dual front brakes and USD forks It may be based on the Sport­ster 1200, but the Road­ster gets a sig­nif­i­cant makeover to not just its styling but, more im­por­tantly, the chas­sis, to turn it into a gen­uine café racer that should ap­peal to a whole new group of rid­ers. By us­ing spe­cially de­signed 19 and 18-inch wheels front and rear re­spec­tively, the whole at­ti­tude is trans­formed. And that’s backed up by Har­ley gift­ing the Road­ster with proper per­for­mance-ori­ented sus­pen­sion and brakes. But bet­ter than all the style and en­gi­neer­ing changes is that it rides beau­ti­fully. If you’re new to Har­leyDavid­sons, start here.
