The 2016 Harley-Davidson Sportster Forty-Eight comes with improvements all over from a better seat to better suspension. It utilizes the 1200cc Evolution engine with electronic fuel  injection. The Harley-Davidson Sportster Forty-Eight also comes with new lightweight mag wheels with the Michelin Scorcher tires, a new master cylinder, while the peanut style fuel tank sports 70’s inspired graphics. The new suspension systems come with cartridge damping up front and an adjustable cartridge emulsion system in back, and a screw adjuster to further dial in the handling. Vibrations have been reduced due to the engine being rubber mounted to the frame, and the new seat offers improved comfort. The Ergonomic hand controls are situated for a more comfortable and fluid position. The Harley-Davidson Sportster Forty-Eight also has the Hard Candy Custom Paint which gives it a bold look.
