Harley-Davidson Roadster Overview
Harley Davidson came to India 8 years ago. The American brand is known for its heavy and stylish cruisers that are on every bike lover’s wish list. The motorcycle company has a long list of bikes for its customers to choose from. One of the hunks on the list is the Harley Davidson Roadster, which is categorized as a Sportster. The Roadster comes with the retro looks of an old American cruiser with a chopped rear fender, which gives it a wild look.
Harley-Davidson Roadster Engine & Transmission
The Roadster comes with a 1200cc, air-cooled V-Twin Evolution engine producing 96Nm of torque at 4000rpm and having a compression ratio of 10:01. The engine is supported by a 5-speed gearbox to handle that heavy torque. Harley Davidson never reveals the horsepower figures on their bikes but it doesn’t matter because in the end, one is getting a good amount of torque and a Harley-Davidson badge on the bike, which is more than satisfying.
Harley-Davidson Roadster Mileage
By its 20.04kmpl mileage, the Roadster can be a good friend to one’s fuel budget, having a stylish and appealing 12.5L fuel tank right in front of the cushiony soft leather seat. The Roadster cannot be a disappointment on those long day trips. The Harley Davidson Roadster features a bunch of features, such asdigital instrument cluster, electric start, LED indicators, engine kill switch, pass light and an option for ABS on the large 300mm dual disc brakes
Harley-Davidson Roadster Performance and Handling
The bike does have extra handling capability. Although the engine produces astonishing torque figures, it does take a bit of shifting to keep hold on that responsiveness from the engine. There exists a sense of vibration when the bike is at idle, which eventually smoothens out at higher revs. The combination of the 300mm disc and Dunlop tyres gives phenomenal stopping power. If undergoing brutal acceleration, the seat on the Roadster holds the rider tight and comfortable, and prevents from sliding back, whereas the case with the pillion seat is exactly opposite. The 43mm inverted forks really smoothen out the bumps, hence making the bike a lot more stable in the turns and giving the rider ability to lean deeper.
