Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Buyer's Guide > Roadster
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
The Roadster is an anomaly in Harley-Davidson's lineup, closer to a naked bike than it is to a cruiser, just like the Sportsters of days gone by. It's based on the 1200 platform, but with 43 mm inverted front forks, dual disc brakes up front and ABS as standard. Mid-controls make for a standard riding position.
