2012 Harley-Davidson Motorcycle

Part of Harley-Davidson’s cutting edge Dark Custom series, the old-school Nightster is a Sportster 1200 designed for those who want minimalist styling-the stop, turn and tail lights are combined on the bobbed rear fender-with practical performance.

The ergonomics are suited to aggressive riding style, rather than aggressive profiling, while the Evolution motor’s 79 ft./lbs. of torque propels the Nightster smartly.

For 2012, the Nightster gets Scorcher 31 tires from Michelin (shod on spoked wheels), as well as new paint options and black side covers.
