US automaker Harley-Davidson has finally launched its Sportster S cruiser motorcycle in India.

Takeaways Why does this story matter?

Harley-Davidson has ceased its operations in India and currently retails its bikes via Hero MotoCorp dealerships. Consequently, the Sportster S is an important model for the brand.

It packs a Bluetooth-enabled 4.0-inch TFT instrument cluster with support for smartphone connectivity, an all-LED setup for lighting, and rides on alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli tires. The bike is offered in Vivid Black, Midnight Crimson, and Stone Washed White Pearl shades.

Information It runs on a 121hp, 1,252cc engine

The Harley-Davidson Sportster S is powered by a BS6-compliant 1,252cc, liquid-cooling, DOHC engine with VVT that generates a maximum power of 121hp and a peak torque of 125Nm. The mill is linked to a 6-speed gearbox and a slipper clutch.

Safety It gets four riding modes

The Harley-Davidson Sportster S is equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with cornering ABS, cruise control, and traction control. It also gets four riding modes: Road, Custom, Sport, and Rain. Suspension duties on the motorcycle are handled by adjustable inverted forks on the front side and a mono-shock unit on the rear end.
