Harley Davidson Sportster Xl 1200 Forty Eight

Harley Davidson


If we talk about a brand of motorcycles with a prestigious name and a past more than a century, one can not talk about Harley Davidson. Among medium-sized V-twin of the house was born in Milwaukee “Forty Eight” (48) a 1200 Sportster bobber changed. At first glance strikes the small peanut tank of 8 liters poor, handsome but unsuitable for long trips and comfortable solo seat lowered, we will have a possible companion at home with the handkerchief in his hand, fanning it to our departure. The circles are small in diameter but with extra large rubber, which makes it a bit ‘springy but more challenging than in the corners, comfortable under the handlebar mirrors that at first glance seem to fit yet, but have a good view in the arms. The engine “Evolution” is the same as the other Sportster 1200, I would say the least as a performance, the 883 I think the rather poor. The advanced type custom footpegs mounted series are definitely more suited to long distances and less use of citizen and every day. The bike is in the context of “minimal” and more aesthetically bad of her classmates, gruff man fit and experienced that should not ever ask. I experienced on the occasion of “The Legend HD On Tour” in Collecchio (PR) in May 2010, I found it most certainly nice to see that to try, a nice toy to admire in the garage and polish.
