Just yesterday, Tuesday, April 12, 2022, we carried information from the American press about the upcoming presentation of a new motorcycle that is part of the new generation Sportster and which will debut the downsized version of the Revolution Max at 975 cc – the engine that from 2019, when and had appeared in the original Bronx, had not given signs of life again. The new Nighster was officially unveiled a day later.
The liquid-cooled V2 with a 60-degree cylinder angle delivers 90 hp and 9.7 kgm, with highly super-square dimensions (97 x 66 mm) and a hydraulically self-regulating valve system, as in the larger Revolution Max 1250T already fitted to the Pan America 1250 and Sportster.

The design logic of the Nightster focuses on a versatile set with an engine tuned for strong midrange, ideally set up for daily commuting in the city and winding roads.
The low saddle, at a height of 706 mm, offers easy access to the ground for riders of any height, contributing to the sense of friendliness that is a leading element of the new motorcycle.
The Nightster is equipped at the front with a conventional 41 mm Showa Dual Bending Valve fork, while at the rear we find two emulsion technology shock absorbers with spring preload adjustment.
Where the new model shines is in its electronic package, the Harley-Davidson Rider Safety Enhancements Suite, which includes ABS, Traction Control (with off capability) and Drag-Torque Slip Control that adjusts the torque delivered to the rear wheel to avoid loss of traction in steep descents or throttle closure in very slippery conditions.
The rider also has at his disposal three selectable Ride Modes – Road, Sport, Rain – that regulate the power output, the engine brake and the invasiveness of the ABS and TCS.

The 11.7-liter fuel tank is located under the saddle and its cap is revealed when it is lifted, in a choice made for double gain: lowering the center of gravity and regaining space in favor of the filter box.
On the steering wheel we find a round instrument with a diameter of 4 inches (102 mm) that includes an analog speedometer and a small LCD screen, the lights are all LED starring the Daymaker projector.
The new Nightster is expected to reach the Harley-Davidson global network in April 2022, while its price has already been announced in the US: $ 13,499 black (€ 12,467 at 13/4/22) and $ 13,899 other colors (€ 12,839 ), ie red and gray.
