The Sportster brand from Harley-Davidson is possibly one of the strongest names and the most renowned name in the Indian premium motorcycle fraternity. And that’s because the brand sold quite a few in the country in the old avatars. So obviously, the brand recall would be the strongest and that’s why the American brand decided to give the same name to a motorcycle that we rode recently – the Sporster S – a bike that is a revolution.
This Harley-Davidson is more modern than you can imagine. The only thing that is old on this bike is its name. Rest everything is new and how! The folks at HD have given it everything they could to make it raw, aspirational, modern, and extremely fun to ride. And not to forget an engine that is seen on a big ADV – the Pan America.
We got an opportunity to ride it in and around NCR for a day and we made full use of our time with it.
