For many of us, the Roadster 1200 is the Sportster that we have been waiting for. Inverted forks, 15" rear shocks, dual front disc brakes, and many more performance upgrades. Basically, the bike sits a little higher, leans a little further, stops a little more quickly and handles the turns with a little more confidence. In theory. We can't wait to get our hands on one to ride, but until then, here are the details and pricing on the newest model from Harley-Davidson!
