If you are looking for America performance and power, than look no further than the Harley Sportster Roadster. For years the Sportster has been a fan favorite by builders and racers for its easily upgradable engine and lighter frame.

The Harley Davidson Sportster Roadster is powered by a 1,200cc Evo engine which produces 76.3 lb-ft of torque and will push you along the highway with ease. Riding in the twisties will require some clever clutch work and keeping the revs higher in the range.

The Harley Davidson Sportster Roadster comes with an upgraded rear suspension and inverted front fork which increases ride height. This in conjunction with mid-mount controls and lower handlebars, give the Sportster Roadster a more aggressive riding position and makes for a more nimble and responsive ride than previous models.

Additional features on the Sportster Roadster include optionable ABS and security system.

The Harley Davidson Sportster Roadster is priced starting at $11,199 and comes in four colors: Vivid Black, Black Denim, Billet Silver/Vivid Black, and Velocity Red Sunglo.

Thoughts from the Staff

"The Roadster takes the low-seated Sportster line, and adds a little bit of aggression to it's stance and performance. Raised adjustable rear shocks and inverted forks pair with low handlebars and a somewhat cafe-looking seat to bring an attractively standard look to the cruisy Sportster lineup."
