Introduced last year and showcasing a new direction for the legendary American-made Sportster, the bike is largely unchanged coming into 2022.
The Revolution Max 1250T engine is a liquid-cooled V-Twin putting out 121hp and a fat torque curve set to add a good stretch to your arms upon a full twist of the throttle. Running a reasonably fat tire both front and rear makes this the most muscular-looking Sportster.
Harley Davidson always nails the details, and on the Sportster S for me, it is the Bronze touches. One of the few models in the 2022 Harley model lineup that takes advantage of modern electronics, the Sportster S has selectable rider modes and lean-sensitive ABS and traction control.
3 color choices exist for the 2022 Harley Davidson Sportster S: Vivid Black, Mineral Green Metallic, and White Sand Pearl.
The 2022 Harley Davidson Sportster S starts at $15,499 USD / $18,499 CAD.

2022 Harley Davidson Sportster S Features
All-new Revolution Max 1250T
The next chapter in a century of legendary V-Twins is here. Revolution Max is a liquid-cooled powertrain with double overhead camshafts and variable valve timing: offering ample torque and an immediate powerband tuned to maximize rider control.
High Mount Exhaust
Inspired by the glory days of H-D flat-track racing, the pipes are crafted from corrosion-resistant 304-series stainless steel and engineered to deflect exhaust heat away from the rider’s legs and tail section.
Everything you need to know is housed in a Bluetooth -equipped, 4” round thin-film transistor LCD display: digital gauges, indicators, ride modes, and turn-by-turn navigation with the Harley-Davidson
Choose Your Ride Mode
Flick a switch and choose from 3 pre-programmed Ride Modes (Sport, Road, and Rain) or create your own custom mode — tuning your bike with a specific combination of power delivery, engine braking, Cornering Enhanced Antilock Braking System (C-ABS) and Cornering Enhanced Traction Control System (C-TCS) settings.
Dual Purpose Powertrain
The Revolution Max 1250T is a structural component of the motorcycle chassis, eliminating a traditional frame — which significantly reduces overall weight and keeps handling precise. This is performance you can feel, with the center of gravity low and the chassis super rigid.
