2010 Harley-Davidson 48 revealed

1 of 4

Harley-Davidson has added the custom hot-rod styled ‘48’ to the Sportster 1200 range for 2010.

The Forty-Eight is based on the running gear of the Sportster 1200, but with 16” balloon tyres (both front and rear are 150-section!) and wider-mounted front forks to match.

The front mudguard is a shorty-style guard mounted on a fork brace, and the rear mudguard is cut-down too.

As standard the 48 is single-seat with a low height of 710mm, and the indicators also incorporate the rear brake lights like the Nightster.

The mirrors are mounted under the handlebars for a sleek look, and the engine, air filter cover, hand controls and indicator bodies are finished in black.

Paint options are black, orange or silver.

As usual with Harley-Davidson there’s a vast selection of accessories – cosmetic parts, performance exhausts and a pillion seat kit are some of the options.
