The 2012 Harley-Davidson Sportster Forty-Eight XL1200X is one of the garage custom motorcycles in the Harley Custom line. With fat front part fatigue and precious metal peanut container, this low-slung city brawler is ready to rip through any landscape. A slammed speedometer, under bar mounted mirrors and 26-inch seat height offer a low profile, while the peanut tank and big 16-inch wheels combine for a menacing look that could only come from Harley-Davidson.
The drag style handlebar is an old school garage feature that demands a forward, aggressive riding position. For all of its imposing aesthetic characteristics, the heart of the Forty-Eight is still its rubber-mounted 1,200cc Evolution V-Twin powertrain. The Harley Forty-Eight is one of the many Harley Sportster bikes, each with a different style. It’s the kind of meaty cruiser that you’d love to have in your garage. Take a look!
