Harley-Davidson launches new 2010 Forty-Eight Sportster 1200 model


by Deeley Harley-Davidson Canada

The new Harley-Davidson® Forty-EightTM motorcycle is a Factory custom bike in the legendary tradition of the hot rod Sportster® line with the raw, elemental appeal of the Dark Custom bikes.

Riding low with a slammed suspension and featuring the classic 2.1-gallon “peanut” fuel tank, the Forty-EightTM model backs up its “bulldog” appearance with the performance of its blacked-out and polished rubber-mounted Evolution® 1200 cc V-Twin engine. The low solo seat, under-mounted mirrors, side-mount licence plate, clean rear fender, and tall and fat front tire emphasize the Forty-EightTM motorcycle’s focus on chiselled customization.

With radical attitude and straight-on style, the Forty-EightTM model will not break the bank, starting at just $$12,479 Canadian MSRP in Vivid Black.

Lying low from tire-to-tire, the Forty-EightTM model showcases more of its black 1200 Evolution radical attitude and straight-on style ® V-Twin engine with polished accents and other components with a clean look, highlighted by the traditional “peanut” fuel tank, small solo seat, and lightening holes in the backbone mounting bracket. With a smooth ride on new front fork sliders, a tall and fat front tire and slammed rear suspension, the Forty-EightTM bike has more than just custom cool styling.

The Forty-EightTM model embraces the street up front with forward foot controls, a low-profile custom handlebar, under-mounted mirrors, fork-mounted turn signals, a slammed speedometer mounting bracket, and a fork brace with lightening holes. A unique dual texture solo seat with a height of 26 inches fits the lone rider, while a passenger pillion, footpegs, and a backrest are some of the many accessories that can be added.

The Forty-EightTM model comes in Vivid Black, Brilliant Silver, and Mirage Orange Pearl colours, and with a Canadian suggested Retail price of $12,479 for black and $12,819 for pearl colours, it will be available soon at Harley-Davidson® Retail locations across Canada.
