The latest edition to Harley-Davidson's Sportster line-up comes is the new Roadster. Positioned towards the higher end of the range, the Roadster comes under Harley's Dark Custom genre which means it gets lots of blacked out bits and less chrome. It uses a 1,200cc engine that is shared with the 1200 Custom but makes 6Nm more torque for a total of 103Nm. Click here to read more about the Roadster or scroll down for more images
