Called the Forty-Eight, this radically styled mini-bobber is the first-ever Sportster to roll on a 16-inch front wheel — at least, the first factory model.
The engine is a blacked-out version of the 1,203 cc fuel-injected and rubber-mounted V-twin that powers most Sportster models. Custom styling touches include bobbed fenders, a low 710 mm seat height, forward-mounted foot controls and under-mounted mirrors. Another less convenient styling feature is a move to a smaller 8-litre peanut fuel tank, down from 12.5 litres, but it looks way cool — and who’s going to buy one of these babies to cross the country, anyway?
Prices are $12,479 for black, and $12,819 for pearl colours.
