Harley-Davidson® has introduced its unique style to the sport bike segment with the Harley-Davidson® Sport category models, and the team at Harley-Davidson® of Panama City Beach is excited to announce that we now have all of the 2023 Harley-Davidson® Sport category models available to test ride and purchase. The Sportster® S is the first true sport bike that the brand has ever designed and a reimagining of one of the most iconic motorcycles ever. The Nightster® retains that classic Sportster® silhouette but boasts a liquid-cooled powertrain, and the Nightster® Special, which is the newest addition to the family, offers premium color options and more advanced tech, including ride modes.
The Sportster® S is arguably the most important of the Harley-Davidson® Sport category models because it is a true sport bike and, as the brand puts it, the first chapter in the latest book of the Sportster® saga. This bike is small, nimble and fast and powered by the Revolution® Max 1250 engine. It makes an impressive 121 horsepower and 94 pound-feet of torque. Another exciting element is the uniqueness of its design. One of the common complaints among sport bike enthusiasts is the sameness that you’ll find across the brands. Harley-Davidson® took a different approach and designed the Sportster® S as if it were designing the first sport bike ever created and really broke the mold in the process.
Whereas the Sportster® S is the Sportster® as if it had been designed in the 2020s rather than the 1950s, the Nightster® remains truer to its roots. It’s the option among the 2023 Harley-Davidson® Sport category models that has the classic silhouette and which delivers a more traditional cruiser experience. Think of it as a cross between a muscle cruiser and a sport bike. It also has a liquid-cooled engine but the Revolution® Max 975 rather than the 1250.
The Nightster® Special is the newest option available at Harley-Davidson® of Panama City Beach having been introduced for the 2023 model year. The standard model is offered exclusively in Vivid Black. That color is standard here as well, but you also have premium options, such as Industrial Yellow, Black Denim and Bright Billiard Blue. The Nightster® Special also gets some upgrades that had previously been limited to the Sportster® S. The analog display is upgraded to an LCD screen, and you get ride modes that let you shape the riding experience based on your current circumstances: Road, Rain and Sport.
