For 2018, the Custom also got a host of cosmetic tweaks, like new chrome uppers and blacked-out eyebrow hood and rocker boxes, laced wheels with black rims, and black paint on the gas emulsion coilover shocks to give them some pop against the chrome fender struts. A racing stripe graces the tank with Harley-Davidson script filling the space. Ergos were slightly tweaked too, with a pullback handlebar and mid-mount controls giving pilots a standard-style riding position. A two-up seat means you don’t have to hit that road alone, and the 4.5-gallon tank gives you the best range of any Sportster (along with the SuperLow), but keep an eye out—there’s no fuel gauge. The close to 600-pound weight and chunky attitude of the Custom might look imposing, but all that melts away once you’re in the low, dished saddle, sitting at just 28.5 inches high. The Evolution motor has plenty of thrust with peak torque hitting at 3,500 rpm, allowing you to easily throttle away at most engine speeds. Simply put, this machine is a breeze to ride and it’s easy to see the appeal for newbies or smaller riders.
