2016 Roadster 1200
The new Roadster puts a powerful new level of sport into the Sportster. Its performance package includes 43mm inverted front forks with massive triple clamps, powerful dual-disc front brakes, premium rear suspension and new dual gauge instrumentation to complement the iconic fuel tank and chopped rear fender.
The riding position is aggressive, but comfortable for long rides thanks to the 19” front and 18” rear offset-split 5-spoke cast aluminum wheels, lowered bars, mid-mount controls and a new two-up seat. Its 45-degree, 1200 cc engine delivers massive off-the-line torque.
It only takes three words to describe the look of the Roadster motorcycle: garage-built custom. You get blacked-out styling details, slammed bars, chopped rear fender, race-inspired graphics, a finned timer cover, and the slotted black exhaust shields.
It’s a low profile, with a nice, deep scoop to keep you firmly planted under acceleration,and it puts you just 30.9 inches off the ground for a low center of gravity and confident handling, additionally at the front of the Roadster motorcycle, you’ll notice a new 43 mm front suspension with inverted forks. They feature cartridge damping and the brawny look of massive new triple clamps. Theykeep your rubber on the road when the pavement gets rough.
The factory-installed next-generation security system features a hands-free fob that automatically arms and disarms the vehicle’s electronic security functions as you approach and walk away from the bike. Stick the fob on your ignition key ring and let it do all the work. It’s this attention to detail and security that make Harley-Davidson® motorcycles unique.
