After adding the Sportster S to its lineup back in November, Harley is now back introducing another new model. Say hello to the new Harley-Davidson Nightster.

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.
