The confidence-inspiring control offered by ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) is a new option for all 2014 Harley-Davidson Sportster® model motorcycles. The five-model Sportster line also features updated hand controls and brake components, improved service access, and an optional H-D® Smart Security System with a proximity-based, hands-free security fob. Since its introduction in 1957, the Harley-Davidson Sportster motorcycle has combined nimble handling and distinctive style in perfect tune with the charismatic beat of an American V-Twin engine. From the Dark Custom™ menace of the Iron 883™ and Forty-Eight® to the easy-handling ride of the SuperLow®; the radical chopper rake of the Seventy-Two™ to the factory custom options of the 1200 Custom, there’s a Harley-Davidson Sportster model to fit your vision and attitude.
New Brakes: The front and rear braking system of all 2014 Sportster models has been redesigned to offer premium performance. Front rotor diameter is increased from 292mm to 300mm. A restyled front-brake caliper features a more-rigid design and dual 34mm pistons that are 36 percent larger than the previous 25mm pistons, for increase braking power. A new high-efficiency aluminum front master cylinder offers reduced friction for improved over-all brake feel. Rear brake rotor diameter is unchanged at 260mm, but the rear caliper is restyled and updated with dual 38mm pistons. Front and rear brakes are fitted with Original Equipment braided stainless steel brake lines.
Optional ABS: Offered as a stand-alone, factory-installed option for all 2014 Sportster models. The components of the Harley-Davidson ABS have been designed and packaged to be virtually invisible, preserving the uncluttered styling of the area around the wheels. This is not a linked ABS, so the rider maintains full, independent control of both front and rear brakes.
Integrated Electrical System: An all-new electrical system incorporates a new analog speedometer with digital tachometer, restyled ergonomic hand controls, an updated wire harness and voltage regulator, and a new oil tank and side cover design that makes it easier to access and service the battery and diagnostic terminal. The new hand controls include a left-hand Trip switch to toggle through screen displays on the new speedometer, including an odometer, tripmeter and the new gear indicator and RPM display.
H-D® Smart Security System: Available as a stand-alone, factory-installed option for all Sportster models, the Smart Security System features hands-free operation with a proximity-based security fob and new keyless ignition. When the rider leaves the motorcycle with the fob, the security system is automatically enabled and the ignition is deactivated. When the rider approaches the motorcycle with the fob, the security system is automatically disabled and the motorcycle may be started immediately.
New Exhaust Emissions Features: An updated exhaust system features fully-welded header pipes and new heated oxygen sensors linked to a closed-loop emissions circuit, all to improve emissions performance.
H-D1™ Factory Customization: Two new custom paint sets for the Sportster 1200 Custom are available through H-D1 Factory Customization, a web-based program that allows customers to select factory-installed options that personalize fit, function and style in more than 2,000 combinations. By choosing from different wheels, paint and engine finishes, the customer can dramatically alter the look of the motorcycle. Different combinations of foot-control location, seat choices and handlebar can be selected to adjust the fit of the motorcycle to rider stature. Customers can expect to be riding their new bike in as little as four weeks from the time an order is placed with an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer. The new paint sets are: Charcoal Pearl Eagle Graphic and Mysterious Red Paisley Skull.
