Harley-Davidson’s 2017 Sportster Forty-Eight Has lots of Attitude from fender to fender. Due to our enthusiasm for motorcycles, we at AMERiders are bringing you the low-down on this beauty. The 2017 Forty-Eight motorcycle rumbles at you with more Dark Custom attitude than ever, from its fat front end to its cast aluminum wheels. This is one beauty you don’t want to miss!
HD didn’t just rebuild it, they reloaded it.
In 1948 the world got it’s first glimpse of this iconic 2.1-gallon gas tank. However, the world has never seen it sitting atop anything quite like this. The 2017 Sportster Forty-Eight has been designed with its signature bulldog stance and the powerful 1200cc Evolution engine. Furthermore, it has large 49mm front forks, an adjustable rear suspension, cast aluminum wheels with floating rotors as well as powerful brakes. All this brings plenty of handling and comfort to all this beauty’s heavy-hitting style.
You wanted more they gave it to you!
Harley motorcycle riders have felt the pull to amp up their powertrain performance since the beginning. Greater acceleration as well as increased passing power, or just more of that rip-roaring, raw Harley-Davidson exhaust sound.
A performance engine build can be intimidating, but you don’t have to start from scratch. A factory-engineered Screamin’ Eagle® Stage upgrade is the place to start with complete, street compliant performance configurations for the increased torque and horsepower you are looking for.
The street is the home turf of the Sportster motorcycle, and a narrow, agile frame wrapped around a strong V-Twin engine has always been its calling card. To see how far Harley has taken this basic equation, get in the saddle of any 2017 Sportster Forty-Eight. The list of constant innovations and refinements you experience on the Sportster motorcycle of today is more than you want to read about here. The latest innovation includes suspension on every model, with cartridge emulsion rear shocks and a screw adjuster to further dial in the handling. It all feels tight and right, bringing confidence to the ride and a grin to the rider. Whether you’re rocketing to the next stoplight, threading through the urban grid, or busting out of the city limits to parts unknown.
When one thinks of the raw-boned style of a Sportster motorcycle they may not immediately think of comfort. That would be a mistake, especially with the 2017 Sportster Forty-Eight. Sink into the seat of any 2017 Sportster model and you discover a premium ride hidden under all the lean and mean styling. The engine is rubber-mounted to the frame, so you feel all the power of an Evolution V-Twin but none of the vibrations. Read more about it and other key features here…
From sketch to steel
Ben McGinley joined Harley-Davidson® five years ago and has been banging out brilliance ever since. A lifelong gearhead, he goes straight to the heart of the machine to turn a sketch on paper to real iron and steel. Inspired by the renaissance of custom bike building, and from events like Yokohama Hot Rod Custom Show, Rockerbox Motofest, and Brewtown Rumble, Ben focuses on the real honesty and authenticity of materials to find what’s cool about the bikes and bring it forward.
For Ben, the Forty-Eight® motorcycle has always been the epitome of Harley-Davidson minimalism. “It really goes back to simplicity and honesty. Two wheels and a V-Twin right in the center.” It’s about design, not decoration. Stripped back pure and, as always, without compromise.
