2016 H-D Sportster 48 Preview

We've loved the Sportster since we first saw it in 2010. I think it is one of, if not the best looking model of the H-D lineup. Especially this year with the new 49mm forks, big old triples and the killer new tank graphic. The 48 is a versatile, comfortable and powerful cruiser that as at home in the city as it is cruising down an open rural highway. And with this year's upgrades, it just got a lot more comfortable.

New for 2016

  • Emulsion technology rear shocks with 50 mm range of pre-load adjustability and an under-seat, rear shock suspension adjustment wrench
  • Front forks with cartridge dampening technology
  • Fork brace and massive triple clamps
  • Optimized seat design for all-day comfort, minimalist style
  • Split 9-Spoke Cast Aluminum wheels in gloss black with Machined highlights
  • Open design sprocket
  • Blacked-out belt guard
  • Turn signal mounts off upper triple
  • Chrome exhaust shields with unique cutouts to show off blacked-out mufflers
  • Paint color options including Hard Candy Custom™ color
  • Retro-mod tank graphics
