Harley Davidson Sportster S 2022 Price in Pakistan (Specs, Features). The 2022 Harley-Davidson Sportster S is a complete redesign of a long-running motorcycle family that dates back to the 1950s. The previous model, the Sportster 1200, has a long history dating back to the Model K, with the most recent iteration receiving a regular series of upgrades since the Evolution engine was introduced in 1986. Who cares, though? That is now ancient history.

What we now have from Harley-Davidson is a totally new bike, nay, a fresh new concept, that throws out all bar the Sportster moniker. The Harley Sportster S, like the Pan America, foregoes air-cooling, non-existent electronics, and ‘feel over performance’ in favor of modern engineering, less show, and more go.
If this were a competitor product, such as a Honda Rebel, I’d be praising the way it rides while whining that it lacks the Harley-Davidson je ne sais quoi, but the Sportster S lacks it as well.

Brakes and Ride Quality:
The Sportster’s Revolution motor, like Harley’s latest Pan America, is a stressed member of the chassis, helping to cut weight significantly, which is felt on the road. The Sportster S is far better at changing direction than the old bike, but the bulbous front tyre puts up a fight. The first 20 degrees of lean are OK, but beyond that, you’ll need to really press the bars to force it to go any farther.
Mid-corner switches, especially when things get tight, can be equally difficult. Because Fat Bob is having the same problem, all fingers are pointing at the massive front tyre. With the old skrrrrtt on every roundabout long forgotten, ground clearance has also improved significantly.
New suspension, unlike the old one, is fully adjustable, and Brembo now provides the brakes.
Both work quite well despite being constrained from the start. The front suspension, for example, is just 92mm thick and the rear is only 37mm thick – the ride is acceptable considering how little Showa had to deal with, but you can’t help but think another inch at each end would make a huge difference.
There’s also a remote preload adjustment concealed under the left side of the seat with a staggering 40 clicks to fiddle with. The brakes are the same way – the four-pot Brembo upfront is more than capable of stopping 228kg of metal plus another god knows what of rider, although additional disc/caliper wouldn’t hurt.
Harley Sportster S is powered by the Revolution Max 1250T, a 1252cc V-twin engine. The engine is a water-cooled 60-degree V-twin with DOHC and a VVT system, similar to the Revolution Max fitted to the Pan America 1250, however, there are a few differences.
The overall displacement remains the same, including the bore and stroke, but the top end has been redesigned with smaller valves, different velocity stacks, and new cam profiles. The result is less peak power and torque (120bhp vs. 150bhp for the Pan, and 92lb. ft vs. 95lb. ft for the Pan), but more torque throughout the rev range, with 10% more torque from 3000 to 6000rpm. On the road, the results are fantastic.
Build Quality and Reliability
On the overrun, there’s some popping, but it doesn’t feel like 1200cc of rip-snorting American strength. On Pan America, where refinement is the name of the game, it goes unnoticed, but on a cruiser, when a sense of occasion is desired, it falls flat.
The Harley-Davidson Sportster S is the latest in a long line of Sportster models, yet it differs significantly from prior iterations. 1250T engine has only recently been released, therefore any judgments about long-term reliability are premature. The standard warranty period is two years, however, it can be extended for a further three years. The parts fit and quality is generally decent, however, we did notice a few rusted empty threads on the frame.
Value vs. Competitors:
The new Sportster S is the ‘pinnacle of the model line, according to Harley, with more affordable options on the way. That means it’s up against everything from an Indian Scout Bobber to a Ducati Diavel and everything in between for the time being. It’s practically incomparable to a Sportster as a replacement, but as an alternative to a BMW R nine T, Indian FTR, or Triumph Bobber Black, it’s a compelling option.
The Harley Sportster’s electronics, like the rest of the bike, have been greatly improved over the previous model, with three riding modes (Road, Sport, and Rain) plus two custom modes, cornering ABS, and lean-sensitive traction control, which this tester found to work remarkably well on one particularly slick corner. All of this is managed via the 4″ round TFT screen, which also includes additional Harley-Davidson app features like navigation.
Versions and model history
History of the model
The Iron 883, Iron 1200, Forty-Eight, and Roadster are all Sportster models that have been around since the 1950s. Before launching this updated variant for the 2021 model year, Harley-Davidson stated that the Sportster family would no longer be offered in European countries in 2020.
