Harley-Davidson introduces new Sportster S in the US

KUALA LUMPUR: Seems like Harley-Davidson has entered itself into the next-generation motorcycle arena with the unveiling of the all-new 2021 H-D Sportster S. It is the exact thing we were expecting after the company launched the Pan America 1250.

The 2021 Harley-Davidson Sportster S is based on the Revolution Max 1250 platform and offers a sportier riding experience thanks to the new layout. It is said to cater to a larger and wider customer base, including the H-D purists and new, younger cruiser fans.

2021 Harley-Davidson Sportster S details

What powers the new H-D Sportster S?

Harley-Davidson’s latest offering is powered by a 1,250 cc V-twin liquid-cooled mill that pumps out a maximum power of 121 hp at 7,500 rpm along with a peak torque of 127 Nm at 9,000 rpm. Yes, it is the same unit found in Pan America. In the latter, the engine generates more power (150 hp), however, in the former, we get more torque at lower revs thanks to the DOHC, VVT, and chain-driven valves for every cylinder.

Other inclusions -

  • Fully-adjustable 43 mm USD front fork
  • Piggyback monoshock (fully adjustable)
  • High-strength swingarm with rear linkage-mounted
  • Front 320 mm single disc brake + radial monobloc 4-piston caliper
  • Rear 260 mm single disc + floating single piston caliper

The 228 kg H-D motorcycle also gets some much-needed electronic riding aids like cornering ABS, a round 4-inch TFT dash with Bluetooth, selectable riding modes, traction control, and more.


The US-spec H-D Sporster S retails for $14,999, which is approximately RM 63,000.
