The Forty-Eight offers a modern take on the classic cruisers that helped establish the Harley-Davidson legacy. The iconic peanut-style gas tank and single round headlamp rest atop a low-sitting chassis and bulky 16-inch wheels, resulting in a vintage look fit for modern style preferences. Choose between Vivid Black, Reef Blue and white Sand Pearl gloss finishes.

With the Forty-Eight, you'll enjoy the simple operation and smooth handling you expect from a Sportster bike with boosted power and a refined look. The 100-gallon gas tank holds enough fuel to power you through most terrains while keeping the weight low. You'll feel comfortable from start to finish thanks to an upright riding position with more room to stretch out compared to competing models. Meanwhile, the open nose allows you to feel the wind on your chest as you carve the open road. The Forty-Eight is an ideal choice for local rides on highways and back roads alike.
