The Nightster is another Sportster-based model and sits right under the Sportster S in the Harley range. It boasts the classic silhouette of the famed Harley nameplate, with the iconic walnut tank up front. It also comes as a single-seater with a headlight cowl and bar-end side mirrors to give it that ultra-retro vibe.
Highlighting the new bits in the Nightster is its Revolution Max 975T powertrain. This is a 975cc liquid-cooled V-twin engine that generates 90hp at 7,500rpm and 95Nm of torque at 5,000rpm.
