Harley Sportster Dark Custom Forty Eight

Harley Davidson have released another custom Sportster in their “Dark Custom” range, the XL1200 Forty-Eight.

The Forty-Eight features the traditional Sportster peanut tank, the bike available in 3 colours, Mirage Orange Pearl as pictured, plus a silver and a black option. A fat front tyre, a lowered stance with a small solo seat complete the look.

Powered by the Evo 1200 motor, the Forty-Eight has electronic fuel injection getting the fuel in, and shorty pipes getting the sound out. Low bars and forward controls will keep your profile low.

The black chopped rear fender with combination stop/turn/tail lights help show-off the 150 mm rear tire and 16-inch Black Steel Laced wheels. The front tyre also rides on a wide black wheel.
