Harley Davidson Nightster: Design, Engine, and more
Weighing in at 218kg, the Nightster is the lightest Harley yet. It borrows some design elements from the Sportster S, like a tubular steel chassis, which also helps it cut down the weight. The seat of Harley Davidson Nightster rests at 705mm with a ground clearance of 110mm. Suspension duties on the Harley Davidson Nightster are handled by 41mm Showa Dual Bending Valves at the front and emulsion shocks at the rear. The Nightster also sports a 320mm disc at the front and a 260mm disc at the rear. The 11.7-litre slim fuel tank is also similar to the Sportster S.
The 975cc liquid-cooled 60-degree V-Twin engine is paired with a 6-speed transmission and produces a maximum power of 90hp and 95Nm torque. The handlebar riser on the Harley Davidson Nightster comes with an LCD display mounted on it. This display houses a single pod analogue speedometer.
