India has added to the long legacy of its Sportster motorcycle line with the
introduction of the Forty-Eight Special model in India. The new high-bar
Sportster combines throw-back styling trends from the custom-bike scene with
the solid foundation of the Sportster platform, along with the punchy
performance of the Evolution 1200 V-Twin engine. The Forty-Eight Special is priced
at INR 10,98,000/-.
Sportster motorcycle was first introduced in 1957. At the launch event, Sajeev
Rajasekharan, Managing Director, Harley-Davidson India said, “Harley-Davidson
was one of the earliest entrants in the premium motorcycle category in India.
Completing 10 years in India is just the beginning as we remain the cruiser of
choice for many riders. With the all new Forty-Eight Special, Harley-Davidson
India takes its motorcycle line up to 17 Models”
burly front end of the Forty-Eight Special – a 130mm front tyre framed by 49mm
forks secured in massive forged aluminium triple clamps – looks especially
menacing when topped with a gloss-black, 7.25-inch high tallboy handlebar.
its inception, the Sportster has offered the perfect combination of size, power
and character that makes it appealing to so many different riders,” said Brad
Richards, Harley-Davidson V.P. of Styling & Design. “A Sportster is a
relatively easy bike to strip down and reinvent. What we’ve done to create the
new Forty-Eight Special is what Sportster owners have been doing with their own
bikes for generation,” he noted.
