Shaped by nearly 60 years of heritage and stripped to the essential elements of a pure riding machine, the new Harley-Davidson® Roadster™ motorcycle is at home in urban landscapes and on twisting roads and makes a bold visual statement even when standing still. The new Roadster model, which is featured in Harley-Davidson’s current Live Your Legend marketing campaign, joins the Dark Custom lineup with a minimalist design inspired by classic racing motorcycles and current trends in stripped-down, naked custom bikes and a profile reminiscent of racing Sportster motorcycles from the 1950s and 1960s.
The Roadster delivers modern performance with a combination of new wheels and tires mated to premium suspension components and an air-cooled 1200cc V-Twin engine that delivers a strong pulse of mid-range torque. The 19-inch front and 18-inch rear Offset-Split 5-Spoke cast aluminum wheels were designed specifically for the Roadster and contribute to its balanced, athletic stance, among many other features.
The Harley-Davidson Roadster model will be offered in four color choices: 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.
