Harley Davidson Dark Custom Motorcycle

Harley Davidson introduces the new Roadster built to inspire a new generation of riders to take to the streets, the Roadster writes a new chapter to the Harley Davidson Sportster story and was truly built as a rider’s motorcycle. With inspiration from the classic racing motorcycles of the past, this bike gives customers a whole mash up of styling genres.

The newest member of the Dark Custom lineup and star of the “Cut Loose” global marketing campaign, the Roadster combines modern performance with retro inspired styling reminiscent of vintage racing motorcycles from the 1950’s and the 1960’s. With an air cooled 1200CC V-Twin, a 19″ front and 18″ rear Offset 5 spoke cast aluminum wheels and an aggressive posture with the new low rise handlebar, the Roadster gives you that classic racing stance that is becoming so popular today.

“We wanted to give the Roadster some DNA from the high-performance KHR models of the mid-50s, and later Sportsters tuned for the drag strip,” said Harley-Davidson Director of Styling Brad Richards. “Those bikes had fenders cut to the struts, the small fuel tank, and were stripped to their bare essentials to achieve a singular performance purpose”.

To stay with the stripped down styling, the Roadster’s rear fender has been clipped 1.5″ shorter then previous bobbed Sportster fenders. The rear turn signals are mounted directly to the fender struts, a side mount license plate and fastback seat design give the rear of the bike a very nice clean look that I personally like a lot.

You will have 4 color choices to choose from with the new Roadster model: Vivid Black with a charcoal denim pinstripe; Black Denim with a red pinstripe; Velocity Red Sunglo with a red pinstripe; and two-tone Billet Silver/Vivid Black with a burgundy pinstripe.

So if your a fan of the classic bobber style motorcycle you may want to take a look at the new Harley Davidson Roadster for yourself, this bike has it all when it comes to classic styling and as always there is plenty of room to customize this bike to suit your personal taste.
