Except for that Sportster trademark, the polished “eyebrow” above the headlight, there isn’t an extraneous piece evident anywhere. This year the fuel tank has grown an extra gallon of capacity to 3.3 gallons, but its unmistakable profile remains. Unlike the other bikes, the fuel cap doesn’t lock. Neither does the steering head, though there are lugs for a padlock. There’s no tool kit either—and no place to store one. It’s the only bike here without a helmet lock. The stark approach also shows up in some details, such as many of the fasteners. The Harley uses rough-finished fasteners which look sort of industrial. However this, as with almost every other XLH shortcoming, is addressed by the aftermarket, which offers more accessories, cosmetic enhancements, modifications and improvements than for the other seven bikes combined.
