Default Is the sportster the fastest Harley?

Is the Sporty the fastest Harley? I am talking 0-60, or even 0-100?

It is not. My dad's full dresser will take me any day.

But I prefer the handling on mine better.

I assume your dad's bagger is not stock... correct?

My father-in-law has an '06 Softail and my Sporty will destroy that thing.

Okay, just a nitpick thing, but you are actually asking about which is quickest, not fastest.

Quick = 0-60, 0-110, quarter mile, etc.

Fast = Top Speed.

Most Bonneville race cars are extremely fast, but not at all quick.
