Ready to wheel its way through the alleyways and backstreets, the Nightster takes the Sportster legend in a dark direction with timeless styling. Black finishes cover wheel rims and hubs, forks and handlebars, hand and foot controls. Old school style fork gaiters and a bullet-hole belt guard emphasize the original look. A low suspension puts the rider at seat height of just 676mm. The new smaller front fender complements the clipped rear fender. The soulful 1200 Evolution engine growls through a chrome staggered exhaust with dual mufflers.
In a first for the Harley-Davidson Motor Company, the European specification version of the Nightster features longer travel rear suspension for improved cornering clearance on Europe’s twisty roads. Riders seeking a lower ‘slammed’ look can easily fit shorter rear suspension units offered through Harley-Davidson® Genuine Parts and Accessories.
