The 48 looks good but is it just different handle bars and a painted tank?

I hate the Iron. So glad I didn't wait and converted a 2017.

This is interesting from the link.

"Now, when you buy an eligible new or used Harley-Davidson® Street® or Sportster® model, you'll get your purchase price (excluding tax, title fees and extras) back on trade within one year from date of purchase."

I like the paint job! Reminds me of my 1973 Ironhead.

“But wait, there’s more!! If you act NOW, you also get a new HIGHER PRICE!!”

(I’m guessing - I didn’t look)

All of the Sportsters have that same low-seat setup that I don't want. They should make a "general purpose" Sportster in addition to the Cruisers and Roadsters.

Detachable hard bags like BMW's Vario setup would be good too.

It's what is called "Badge Engineering" . . . . unfortunately.

Sounds like the metric bike advertisements from the late '70's/early '80's.........."BOLD NEW GRAPHICS".............



........and really nothing else is changed
