Harley-Davidson has recently launched the brand new Sportster S in Malaysia at Tropicana Grandhill Property Gallery, Genting. The new bike aims at riders who needs serious power and performance for their riding experience.
The heart of the Sportster S is the 121hp Revolution Max 1250T V-Twin engine which has liquid-cooled powertrain with double overhead camshafts and variable valve timing. The bike can deliver 125 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. The Sportster S spots a lightweight and super rigid chassis to help better handling.
In terms of styling, the new Sportster S will feature all LED Lighting to improve visibility for riders during night riding. The bike will feature high mount exhaust that aims to deflect exhaust heat away from the rider’s legs and tail section. The exhaust is also made from corrosion-resistant 304-series stainless steel and inspired by the glory days of H-D flat-track racing.
In the suspension department, the front has a 43 mm inverted fork with compression, rebound and spring preload adjustability with aluminum fork triple clamps, while the rear has linkage-mounted, piggyback monoshock. Both front and rear suspension has preload adjustments. Braking power is delivered by a front single radially mounted, monoblock, 4-piston caliper and at the rear, a floating, single piston caliper. Both front and rear caliper is using Brembo calipers.
But don’t be fooled with it’s muscular looks and performance, the Sportster S hosted a vast load of technologies that offers more convenience for modern riders.
