Harley-Davidson has released a teaser of a new Sportster variant that'll be unveiled on April 12, 2022. The new Harley-Davidson Sportster S is expected to sit below the Sportster S, and going by the teaser images of the bike, it looks markedly different as well.
To begin with, the new bike gets a circular headlight with a bikini fairing around unlike the modern-looking rectangular LED headlight on the ‘S’ model. Other changes visible at the front include a larger alloy wheel shod with thinner tyres. Move to the side, and you see a revised riding position that appears to be more comfortable than the ‘S’.
The Revolution Max, liquid-cooled engine can be seen as well, with a low-slung exhaust pipe unlike the side mounted units. At present, it is still unclear whether Harley-Davidson will offer the Revolution Max 1250 or the 975 on this lower spec Sportster. Other differences to the S include a curved fender and twin shock absorbers instead of a monoshock.
With barely a few days to go for the official unveiling of the new Harley-Davidson Sportster, it’s only a matter of time till we get to see the bike in its entirety. We expect this variant to cost significantly lesser than the Harley-Davidson Sportster S that is priced at Rs 15.51 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
