The new 2011 Harley-Davidson Sportster Forty-Eight XL1200X combines specifications into the brand’s thoroughbred classic design and characteristics without compromising style and function.
The motorcycle, which is equipped with rubber-mounted, fuel injecte, 1,200cc Evolution V-twin motor, runs on a 5 speed transmission that ensures the infusion of modern practicality, form and function.
The overall package is added with an attractive design packagethat has key components blacked out, handlebar with under-mounted mirrors, a one piece, 26″-high solo classic seat, and 16″ black, laced steel wheels with chopped fenders.
The Sportster 48 badge was introduced in 1948, inspiring the Forty-Eight model name with the small 7.9L tapered peanut fuel tank holding strong today with its traditional styling and modern attitude. This low, powerful bulldog look, gives away for showcasing more engine while the peanut fule tank exudes and looks all balled up into one complete package.
The Engine, which was the first to be bolted to the frame of a Harley-Davidson motorcycle in 1984, was born from the legendary Shovelhead and Ironhead engines. In a nutshell, this Evolution engine broke new ground in displacement innovation and maintained the hunger for power, durability and proven reliability that Harley-Davidson was built on.
A further appeal for the Sportster 48 is that the electronics have been hidden. The whole wiring harness is skillfully routed behind the jewels of the bike’s peanut fuel tank, engine and all the other eye-popping features you want to see.
NAZA Group of Companies Joint Group Executive Chairman Dato’ Hj SM Faisal Tan Sri SM Nasimuddin described the Sportster 48 as a bike with legendary badge that has reached Malaysian shores.
“This bike is a perfect example of how Harley_Davidson goes the extra mile to give its bikes that premium, top-of-the-line fit and finish, in-line with the Group’s offerring to its customers of only the best products,” he said.
He added that above all, the bike represents a very special place in the hearts of enthusiasts of Harley-Davidson, and is certainly a product that would be popular not just for the Harley Community, but other bikers as well.
The combination of a lowered front and rear suspension together with a low solo seat – just 26″ high – provides confidence for riders of all sizes and experience.
The Sportster 48 offers a responsive ride for whipping through town or a long run out onto the highways.
This extraordinary motorcycle from Harley Davidson is priced at RM125,000 (Nett Selling Price)
