2018 XL1200XS

Description:

If you've got it, why not flaunt it? We took our 2018 Harley-Davidson Sportster Forty-Eight Special to iconic Cook's Corner in Southern California to snap some shots of the newest Sportster. Back in 2010, Harley-Davidson introduced the XL1200X Forty-Eight, and eight years later the newest version of that model still retains a tiny 2.2-gallon "peanut" gas tank. This year, the bike gained a more muscular front end with forged aluminum triple clamps and a 49mm fork, all topped off with 7.25-inch-high Tallboy handlebar.

The 2018 Forty-Eight Special arrives in three color: Vivid Black, Wicked Red, or Billiard White, with ours rolling in white. The new Forty-Eight Special comes equipped with a fuel-injected, 1,200cc Evolution V-twin engine, paired with a five-speed manual transmission. The manufacturer suggested retail price for Vivid Black is $11,299, with color options.

Our 6-foot-tall photo model fit comfortably behind the 2018 Harley-Davidson Sportster Forty-Eight Special's Tallboy handlebar and forward-mounted foot controls. 

The Forty-Eight Special is equipped with chrome heat shields and engine covers. he 1,200cc Evolution engine gleams with all its chrome.  he Forty-Eight Special rocks Split nine-spoke cast aluminum wheels in Gloss Black.
