Harley-Davidson XL 1200 X Sportster Forty Eight Special 2018

Menus

In the series of little scoundrels, the Sportster Forty-Eight is not the last of the bunch. Mostly planned with a clear penchant for showing off, this piece of roadster is an everyday bad boy. No frills for driving, we only take care of the 1200. We laugh with a smile on the ridiculous “Peanut” tank, we attack head-on with the big front end (49 mm fork, 130 tire) and we laugh at all those who love plastic and rindless cheese.

What more or different did the 48 need for him to feel the need for a Special orientation? Surely a more violent need to grab the road. Because there lies the main specificity of this Sportster: the handlebars. With a black “Tallboy” element, the driver assumes a more relaxed position without losing an ounce of virility.
The Special also plays on its choice of colors escaped from the era of color photos of the Polaroid OneStep. We dive into America between the Beach Boys and the disco. As for the rest of the machine, among the depths of black and the 248 kg of metal, it has lost some artifices such as the recesses on the belt guard and the muffler covers..

Special … a big word for just a handlebar and color bands. Except in Harley’s stronghold, where words and ideas combine differently. The Sportster 1200 Forty-Eight finds an expression here where it raises the chin while delivering the same flavor. At the rate of 9.8 mkg of its twin Evolution. And since it is displayed at the same price as the standard 48, only the look will be able to dictate the choice of the purchaser..
