The 2017 Sportster

An addition to Harley Davidson models that are hard not to fall in love with, there are six Sportster models in the range to choose from, each more alluring than the next. Quite the American legends, these models not only feature that classic look and style, but offers power and agility.

The Iron 883 boasts black cast aluminium wheels and a stripped down, custom style that is uniquely Harley. With a fine tuned suspension, narrow and agile frame, ABS and a range of colour options, this raw motorcycle is nothing short of hot.

The Superlow Sportster model has a low centre of gravity and offers easy handling, a balanced stance on the road and an adjustable suspension. A beautiful bike with authentic styling, the Superlow offers a lean frame that most definitely doesn’t skimp on comfort. Some colour options available include Vivid Black and a Two-tone Crushed Ice Pearl and Frosted Teal Pearl.

If you are looking for that classic Harley Sportster look, the 1200 Custom offers pull back buckhorn bars, low-end torque and steel laced wheels. You can also expect not only a comfortable seat and powerful ABS brakes, but an adjustable rear suspension as well.

Large front forks, cast aluminium wheels, 70s inspired graphics on the tank and floating rotors are all distinctive of the Forty-Eight. Keeping that Harley Davidson signature bulldog stance, the Forty-Eight offers not only comfort and an adjustable rear suspension, but a look that will not soon be forgotten.

Offering a ride you will not want to stop, the Superlow 1200T has an adjustable suspension enabling you to take on both city streets and the open road with comfort and ease. Featuring a two-up seat and detachable windshield, these Harley Davidson motorcycles have a low centre of gravity, delivering an enjoyable ride every time.

With agile handling, low-end torque and a custom style, the 1200CX Roadster has an aggressive yet comfortable seat position. Featuring an adjustable rear suspension, superior cornering, dual disc brakes, dual gauge instrumentation and mid-mount controls, this bike is definitely worth a closer (drooling) look.

2017 Harley-Davidson Dyna

Delivering a big performance coupled with a raw, custom design, the Dyna Harley Davidson models are nothing short of stunning. Able to make any Harley fan’s heart skip a beat, there are a total of four 2017 Dyna models to choose from in South Africa.

The Street Bob was designed with the bobber philosophy of “if it weighs you down, get rid of it”. Sporting a chopped rear fender, solo seat and post-war bobber look and feel, the Street Bob also features a 45˚ V-twin heart, a six-speed cruise drive transmission and a stiff chassis for great handling.

Ride it long, often and hard, the Low Rider model features mid-mount controls, an adjustable seat and handlebars, and the stunning curves of a big, two-in-one exhaust. With beefy front dual disc brakes and, like the other models in the Dyna family, a six-speed cruise drive transmission, these Harley Davidson motorcycles are designed with the comfort of the rider in mind.

The Wide Glide, much like the other models in the Dyna range, boast an authentic, old school chopper look. This Harley is beautifully complimented by a Tommy Gun exhaust and a wide fork design straddling a 21 inch laced wheel. With available flame designs on the tank, this Harley Davidson for sale offers not only style, but rider comfort as well.

The Tommy Gin exhaust, dual disc brakes and the powerful Twin Cam 103 engine found in all the Dyna models, makes it not only pretty, but tough as well.
