Sportster sport, excellent condition 7300km,
manufactured 1998 Registered new 2008.
The sportster is Harley's sportsbike and the sport takes it to another level with factory 10:1 compression ratio instead of 9:1, different cams, and heads, special ignition with twin plug heads, two front disks instead of one and fully floating brake rotors, fully adjustable suspension front and rear, adjustable for spring preload, compression and rebound damping.
Plus special paint with the chequered flags on tank.
In reality the changes just made it run smoother and added mainly torque, but also a few extra horsepower.
Pulls very hard from idle and will tolerate full throttle from 2000rpm (80kmh) in top gear.
Unlike the buell, the sportster sport uses standard sportster flywheels for smooth acceleration from low revs.
This bike came into the country with nil km from Japan and was first registered in 2008 with nil km, one look at the overall condition and the brake rotor thickness confirms.
Never dropped, a rare and desirable bike for the enthusiast.
Other manufacturers have made modern interpretations of the old bikes they used to make, the sportster is just a continuation, with updates, not a modern interpretation, and it's a bike you can ride every day, they have made them since the '50s and ironed out all the faults years ago, and with belt drive, electronic ignition and pushrods with self adjusting lifters, maintainance is minimal.
