The Harley-Davidson® Nightster™ motorcycle is the next chapter in the Harley-Davidson Sportster® legacy – a leap forward in performance and design built on a foundation laid 65 years ago.
Fans of the classic Sportster® silhouette paired with a Revolution® Max engine and advanced features. Riders looking for a quick and nimble motorcycle with razor-sharp handling. Enthusiasts who appreciate the heritage and feel of a Harley-Davidson motorcycle in an understated package.
AIR BOX COVER
The most obvious resemblance to its Sportster® lineage is the shape of the airbox cover, which shares its profile with the classic Sportster® model fuel tank.
The Nightster™ is equipped with a 19-inch front wheel and a 16-inch rear wheel, dimensions selected to deliver nimble performance and distinctive style.
EXPOSED DUAL REAR SHOCKS
Modeled after a previous Sportster® chassis, Nightster™ features exposed dual rear shocks that provide a critical style line at the rear of the motorcycle.
LIQUID COOLED REVOLUTION® MAX 975T
Performance when you need it, the Revolution® Max 975T engine is a liquid-cooled V-Twin tuned to make tremendous torque at low RPM, delivering strong acceleration from the start with robust power through the mid-range.
Nightster™ does not use a traditional hoop-style frame. Instead, the powertrain is used as a stressed member significantly reducing weight and resulting in a very stiff chassis. Each component has been designed to be compact, strong, and lightweight.
RIDER SAFETY ENHANCEMENTS
Nightster™ comes equipped with a collection of technologies that are designed to increase a rider’s confidence during unexpected situations or while riding through adverse road conditions. Rider Safety Enhancements are designed to adjust and match motorcycle performance to available traction during acceleration, deceleration, and braking. The systems are electronic and utilize the latest chassis control, electronic brake control and powertrain technology.
Using light-weight materials and shifting components to new places has helped reduce overall weight. Centralizing the mass of the engine and fuel cell location low in the chassis makes the bike feel very light, enhancing performance and improving rider confidence when mounting the bike, maneuvering at low speeds, carving through corners and when resting at a stop.
Selectable Ride Modes electronically control the motorcycle’s performance to better match the road conditions, or the experience you want. You can select from Road Mode, Rain Mode or Sport Mode. The system works by adjusting power delivery, engine braking, ABS and TCS settings to each specific mode.
MAKERS AND CREATORS
To write the next chapter, you need the right instrument. For the makers and creators, the Nightster™ is the ultimate canvas for those riders who seek to push through barriers and create their own riding experience.
