Harley-Davidson Nightster rumbles out


Black-out paintjob, solo seat, low-rider styling. Cool...

Harley-Davidson recently unveiled the latest addition to their Sportster range – the XL 1200N Nightster. This funky little machine is basically a low-riding Sportster 1200 and is powered by Harley’s fuel-injected 1200cc Evolution engine. Of course, no power or torque figures are quoted.

H-D say that the “New Sportster model fuses fiendish formula of performance and style,” that it offers “a wicked combination of exceptional performance, unique design and a low seat height,” and that “the Nightster has a gritty, urban feel, offering a sharp ride for the street.” Ahem. But still, with its belt-drive, v-twin engine, black-out paintjob and solo seat, the Nightster will probably appeal to some North American riders. Which is just as well because the bike will only be made available in North America.


Guess it may be a bit of fun after all. In a weird way. If you are into this sort of thing... :-)

I have a 2008 Nightster and it is the best cycle I have ever owned. Fast, light and cool looking.

Yeah Baby!

Yeah, even I remember having a Nighster with me on desktop for sometime back in 2008, before replacing it with 2008 Superglide.
