The 2023 Harley-Davidson® Sport Category Models near Matthews NC
The Sport series is one of the newest additions to the Harley-Davidson® lineup available through Speedway Harley-Davidson®. It was launched last model year with two Harley-Davidson® Sport category models—Sportster® S and Nightster™—and was expanded this model year to include the Nightster™ Special. Sport bikes are a type of motorcycle that rose to prominence in the 1980s. They were motorcycles inspired by professional racing bikes but which were street-legal. Over time, the segment has developed into a genre that appeals to a wide range of enthusiasts and even more now that Harley-Davidson® has entered the fray.
One of the core goals for the new Sport family was to reimagine the iconic Sportster® as if it had first been developed today rather than in 1957. The result of that project is the Sportster® S, which is the first and still only Harley-Davidson® model developed specifically as a sport bike. The bike boasts a lean and mean style that is still very much a Harley-Davidson® design. It’s powered by a liquid-cooled powertrain that doles out 150 horsepower and plenty of torque throughout the powerband. Vivid Black is the default aesthetic, but you also have the choice of White Sand Pearl, Gray Haze, and Bright Billiard Blue.
Harley-Davidson® also wanted to develop a modern, sport-oriented Sportster® that appealed to its traditional base, and this is where the Nightster™ and Nightster™ Special come in. These 2023 Harley-Davidson® Sport models are perfect for the rider who wants a sportier riding experience but prefers the classic Sportster® silhouette and the more traditional cruiser experience. The Nightster™ is offered in either Vivid Black or Redline Red. The Nightster™ Special is offered in Vivid Black, Black Denim, Bright Billiard Blue, and Industrial Yellow. The Nightster™ Special is also notable in that it has some of the advanced features from the Sportster® S, such as the LCD screen and selectable ride modes. Visit us near Matthews NC.
