2021 Harley-Davidson Sportster® S
All-new Revolution® Max 1250T  

All-new Revolution® Max 1250T  

The next chapter in a century of legendary V-Twins is here. Revolution® Max is a liquid-cooled powertrain with double overhead camshafts and variable valve timing: offering ample torque and an immediate powerband tuned to maximize rider control. 

2-into-1 High Mount Exhaust  

2-into-1 High Mount Exhaust  

Inspired by the glory days of H-D flat-track racing, the pipes are crafted from corrosion-resistant 304-series stainless steel and engineered to deflect exhaust heat away from the rider’s legs and tail section.  

Classic Meets Modern: 4” Round Digital Display  

Classic Meets Modern: 4” Round Digital Display  

Everything you need to know is housed in a Bluetooth®-equipped, 4” round thin-film transistor LCD display: digital gauges, indicators, ride modes, and turn-by-turn navigation with the Harley-Davidson® app. All functions are accessed via buttons on the left- and right-hand controls.  

Choose Your Ride Mode   

Choose Your Ride Mode   

Flick a switch and choose from 3 pre-programmed Ride Modes (Sport, Road, and Rain) or create your own custom mode — tuning your bike with a specific combination of power delivery, engine braking, Cornering Enhanced Antilock Braking System (C-ABS) and Cornering Enhanced Traction Control System (C-TCS) settings.  

Dual Purpose Powertrain  

Dual Purpose Powertrain  

The Revolution® Max 1250T is a structural component of the motorcycle chassis, eliminating a traditional frame — which significantly reduces overall weight and keeps handling precise. This is performance you can feel, with the center of gravity low and the chassis super rigid.
