2012 Harley-Davidson XL1200N Nightster Review
With a gritty, no-nonsense look, it's Sportster® performance with a dark, aggressive attitude not normally found on such a nimble bike.
Chopped front and rear fenders. Side-mounted license plate. Low 25.3-inch seat height. Old-school front fork gaiters. Raw-boned graphics and a unique finish on its V-Twin Evolution® engine. BLACKED-OUT LOOK
The black drag-style handlebar with a slight rise and black finish hand controls add to the stripped down, minimal look of the Nightster® model.
CLASSIC PEANUT FUEL TANK
As one of the defining features of the Harley-Davidson® Sportster® models for decades, the classic 3.3 gallon tapered peanut fuel tank still holds strong today with its traditional styling and modern attitude.
Up to two times thicker than the competition, custom quality paint comes standard on all Harley-Davidson® motorcycles.
HAND FINISHED FUEL TANK
