Well, she’s officially out in all her glory – and to say she comes highly anticipated is the understatement of the month.
Meet the Nightster™ – a 481-lb., smaller-capacity Sportster variant featuring a more torque-focused Revolution® Max 975T heart capable of beating out 90 HP / 67 kW @ 7500 rpm, with the torquedos sitting nicely at 70 ft-lb.
“We thought about the people who designed [the Sportster moniker], their intentions. We’ve just taken it one step further – we wouldn’t change the line. It’s a lineage.”
Harley-Davidson’s new Nightster comes with a host of perks, including the very accessible seat height sitting at 27.1 inches, an estimated fuel economy of 52.4 mpg, and additional safety features including ABS, and TCS (Traction Control System), and DSCS (the Drag-Torque Control System).
The price has officially been revealed as starting at $13,499 USD for the Vivid Black color option, with an additional $400 for the Gunship Gray and Redline Red…and as for the premium (some say overkill) price, the team here at wBW is already shrugging and raising our eyebrows.
