Standard Features

Overview
 There are things in its past you should know about. There’s no mistaking the throwback look and unruly style of the Harley-Davidson® Seventy-Two® motorcycle rolling by on the street. Feet forward. Fists in the wind. Hard Candy Custom™ fat metal flake paint on a 2.1-gallon peanut tank, classic skinny whitewalls, raked front end. But, unlike the ‘70s garage choppers that came before it, it has confidence inspiring front and rear brakes. And plenty more tech to make the ride better. The Seventy-Two motorcycle. Modern day refinement. True, old school outlaw soul.  
Authentic Styling
 Classic Peanut Fuel Tank: First appearing on a Harley-Davidson motorcycle back in 1948, the small 2.1-gallon tapered peanut fuel tank holds strong today with its traditional styling and modern attitude. A low, powerful bulldog look that gives way for showcasing more engine, the peanut fuel tank is attitude and looks all balled up into one.  
 Mini Ape-Hanger Handlebar: Grab ahold of the stainless steel mini-ape hanger handlebar and put your fists up into the wind – it'll take you back to the glory days of chopper cruising. And to keep the look cool and clean, the wiring is routed inside the steel.  
 Retro Air Cleaner Cover: This 8-inch, street legal, mirror-chrome air cleaner cover makes a powerful statement that recalls the glory days of old iron crossed with a clean, contemporary look.  
 Whitewall Tires and Laced Wheels: Large (21-inch front) lace-spoked wheels with their bold brilliant white walls complete the old-school low-rider look.  
 Classic Rear – Modern Functionality: The chopped rear fender with side-mounted plate completes the Seventy-Two model's long, low chopper look and keeps things classically clean and raw. The chrome bullet tail lights combine this old school retro-styling with new school technology, packing stop beams, turn signals and running lights into each lamp.  
Iconic Engine
 Evolution® Engine Innovation: Air-cooled and durable as hell, the 1200 cc Evolution engine is yet another nod to the unwavering work ethic that drives advancements in motor technology at Harley-Davidson. Aluminum heads and cylinders lighten the load of the bike and improve air-cooling efficiency. Electronic fuel injection says goodbye to carburetors and boasts increased reliability and less routine maintenance. Bottom line: the rubber-mounted Evolution engine runs hard and rides smooth for thousands of miles so you can just worry about taking in the freedom of the open road.  
 Pure Harley-Davidson Styling: Feast your eyes on the 1200 cc Evolution engine and there's no mistaking its roots. This is authentic Harley-Davidson style through and through with an attention to detail you won't find from any other motorcycle company. Black powder-coated cylinders and cylinder heads are topped off with chrome rocker covers and an old school round air cleaner cover for a tough vintage Harley-Davidson attitude. It's a jewel machined out of metal. Pure. Dripping with power. From the classic edge of the cooling fins to the clean lines of cases and covers – the 1200 cc Evolution engine makes an ironclad statement about holding on to what's right and staying true to what satisfies the rider.  
 Evolution Engine: The Evolution engine – known in certain crowds as the Blockhead – was first bolted to the frame of a Harley-Davidson motorcycle back in 1984. Born from legendary Shovelhead and Ironhead engines, the Evolution engine broke new ground in displacement innovation while maintaining the hunger for power, durability and proven reliability that The Motor Company was built on.  
Technology
 Ergonomic Hand Controls: If your hands feel good on the controls you’ll feel good on the bike. Which is why when you twist the throttle of a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, you just know. You feel more dialed in, comfortable and attuned to the road and everything around you. In designing these hand controls we went the extra mile to make sure every operation is as intuitive, fluid and effortless as possible. So you can keep your eyes on what’s over the next ridge and not what’s under your thumb. Things like self-canceling turn signals that are right where you want them to be and brake levers that are easy for all riders to reach. We’ve added other features, too, like a trip switch and vehicle “start” switch as all Sportster models are keyless. Details that may seem small but make a huge difference on the road. Because it’s tiny things like these that make a Harley-Davidson motorcycle a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.  
 Foundation Brake System: Like riding itself, you can never go too far when it comes to improving a bike’s brakes. This is why we gave the brake system of each Sportster model a complete overhaul designed to improve performance, fit and finish. We increased the size of the brake rotors from 292 mm to 300 mm and added a more powerful, stylized front caliper with 34 mm pistons and stylized rear caliper to match. Other system features include an improved all-aluminum integrated rear master cylinder with reservoir, all-aluminum front master cylinder with reduced friction and higher efficiency, and stainless steel braided lines. It all adds up to more confidence on the road and more power and predictability when you squeeze the brakes.  
 Closed Loop Exhaust System: Designed to meet future worldwide emissions standards and the standards of future generations of Harley-Davidson motorcycle riders. This closed loop exhaust system delivers heart-pounding performance in the key of the trademark Harley-Davidson rumble. With its robust, soul-stirring big twin design, durable mufflers with exhaust shields, a catalyst and mini heated oxygen sensors that improve emissions and drivability, this system is not only better for the environment, it makes riding better.  
 Integrated Electrical System: Coursing through every Sportster model is a body controller with updated routing. It has a cleaner look and reduces the number of wiring harnesses, switches, relays and fuses. Which is a fancy way of saying less fuss. We’ve also added a voltage regulator with modified fins and integrated connectors to improve heat rejection. Like you, the Sportster motorcycles are wired and ready to chase wind and eat up miles of pavement.  
Comfort
 Forward Mount Controls: With the custom forward-mount controls, you can kick back a little and stretch your legs for the ultimate cruise through town or across the state line. It's time to take in the open road the way you were meant to – on a two-wheeled machine that's built to outdo the rest.  
 New Solo Seat with All-Day Comfort: True to its authentic ‘70s chopper heritage, you don’t see a lot of seat when you look at the Seventy-Two motorcycle. But that doesn’t mean you need an old school kidney belt to spend a day in the saddle. Thanks to the latest 21st Century materials we were able to build in all-day riding comfort without blowing the sleek custom look.  
 New Suspension Front and Rear: From the day the first Sportster motorcycle roared out of Milwaukee in 1957, the street has been its home turf. Raw power and looks were only part of the equation. The nimble, confident ride took it from there. So it's only right to give the ride quality of the Sportster family a major upgrade to use the latest technology. Up front, you have a brawny 39 mm fork with cartridge damping to give you a sporting ride without the harshness. In back, we went with an emulsion rear shock with screw adjuster. It not only works overtime to soak up every bump the street throws your way, it also adjusts to fit your riding style. Simply turn the screw and you have a rear suspension set up to ride just the way you like it.

Equipment
  • Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS): When the burrito exit comes out of nowhere, you’ll need a little extra braking power. That’s why optional anti-lock brakes are on all Sportster® models. ABS improves overall braking performance, and keeps you from locking up under heavy braking. Plus, the entire system is smartly integrated into the design of the bike, so nothing gets in the way of your steel work of art. Because what’s the point of stopping if you can’t make a few heads turn? Request a Quote
  • H-D® Smart Security System: The factory-installed next-generation security system features a hands-free fob that automatically arms and disarms the vehicle's electronic security functions as you approach and walk away from the bike. Stick the fob on your ignition key ring and let it do all the work. It's this attention to detail and security that make Harley-Davidson® motorcycles unique. Request a Quote
