The 2022 Harley Davidson Nightster: All New

Introducing an all-new member of the “Sport” family into their 2022 model lineup, the Nightster is a welcome leap forward for this American staple.

Wrapped around the new Revolution® Max 975T liquid-cooled V-Twin, is a familiar-looking Sportster chassis with traditional features like the rear outboard mounted shocks, round intake cover, and peanut styled fuel tank.

Harley Davidson has tuned the new powertrain for a stout 70 ft-lb of torque and 90hp. The new chassis should prove quite nimble with a 16” rear and 19” front wheel setup. LED lighting and selectable rider modes round out the modern features.

3 color choices exist for the 2022 Harley Davidson Nightster: Vivid Black, Gunship Gray, and Redline Red.

The 2022 Harley Davidson Nightster starts at $13,499 USD / $16,499 CAD.
