Considering the number of premium motorbikes available in the market, it’s easy to see why one would ditch a vanilla sedan in favor of a more capable two-wheeler. The latest temptation to land in the Philippines is the 2021 Harley-Davidson Sportster S.

The American motorcycle manufacturer has just launched the model locally, with all units getting a 1,250cc liquid-cooled V-twin engine capable of 121hp and up to 125Nm of torque paired to a six-speed transmission. The available ride modes include Sport, Rain, and Road.
