Here is Revzilla's take on the new Sportster S: https://www.revzilla.com/common-trea...r-s-first-look
Here are a few photos that I took of the bike this weekend at the Northern California Progressive motorcycle show at the Sears Point Raceway. BTW, at the display they had boxes painted on the pavement that told you to stand there to take photos of the bike. As it turned out, I didn't pay much attention to those directions. One styling feature that H-D can keep is that big license plate/stop light/turn signal lump at the back of the rear tire. I bet a lot of owners will be installing Screaming Eagle tail tidies to replace that sucker. That assembly is just aching to become a car bumper's new decoration. And no wonder it needs such fat tires, what with 3.6 inches of suspension travel at the front and only 2" of travel at the rear. I think that is less travel than a Honda Super Cub has. What were they thinking? That the roads in the U.S. are all as smooth as their test track? Those balloon tires will be doing as much to smooth out the bumps in the road as the suspension.
