Harley Davidson 48

The Harley Davidson 48 is one of the best motorcycles produced by the legendary Harley Davidson Motorcycles Company. An incredible machine that hasn’t changed very much since the original release of the model in 1986. The Harley Davidson Sportster 48 is a real man’s motorcycle.

These beast machines are built for urban environments and handle the city streets very well. Built with big fat tires and a solo seat style, this brute will dominate the open road and look very cool as you pass by the slow pokes on the interstate. Harley-Davidson XL1200X 48 Harley’s new 48 Sportster is perhaps the coolest new motorcycle of the year.

The Harley Davidson Sportster is a line of motorcycles produced by the Harley-Davidson Motor Company continuously since 1957. Sportster models are designated in Harley-Davidson’s product code by beginning with “XL”. The Harley Davidson XL1200X Sportster “Forty-Eight”, is constructed in the “Dark” Nightster style, but has the classic ’48 style small peanut tank, wire wheels, forward-controls, a whole new 130mm front tire, and super small single seat.

“Sportster is a term that has been coined by the HarleyDavidson Motorcycle Company to describe a popular line of its bikes. The HarleyDavidson Sportster officially made its debut in the year 1957″
