2023 Harley-Davidson Sportster S Review

When you drive a Harley-Davidson, you know to expect high levels of performance and HD style. The 2023 Harley-Davidson Sportster S is no exception. It’s just a reinvention to continue to modernize motorcycle design. 

Pfaff Harley-Davidson is here to introduce riders around Richmond Hill, Markham, and Vaughan, Ontario, to the latest iteration of the 2023 Harley-Davidson Sportster S in this review. We’ve covered the Sportster S’s performance, design, and rider safety enhancements below. 

Sportster S Performance

The Sportster S is designed to provide high-end performance with aggressive riding and sport bike agility. This combination leads to an exciting drive and excellent handling on any road. 

The Sportster S is powered by a Revolution™ Max 1250T engine, which delivers 121 horsepower or 90 kilowatts of power. Its engine torque is an impressive 127 Nm at 6,000 RPMs. The motorcycle uses an Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection system to provide the performance you expect. 

Sportster S Design

The Sportster S is made to stand out on the road. There are four colour options and plenty of Harley-Davidson parts and accessories you can add to show your style while on the road. Colour options are:

  • Brilliant Billiard Blue
  • Gray Haze
  • White Sand Pearl
  • Vivid Black

The Sportster S features forward foot controls and a forward riding positioning for a more comfortable position while driving. The profile of the motorcycle is lower to the ground, making it easier to mount and dismount. 

The Sportster S offers a style customization package called Sportster S Wild One Package. This package offers a more rugged style, thanks to a gleaming black finish on the powertrain and control accessories. Bright machined headlights add to the tough look. 

The Sportster S has a standard LED headlamp with signature position lighting for a clear look at the road ahead, even at night. 

Rider Safety Enhancements

Every Harley-Davidson bike is designed to keep you safe, including the Sportster S. It has several rider safety enhancements that aid you in your travels. 

The anti-lock brake system and Traction Control System help you get the traction you need when the terrain is less than ideal. The cornering enhanced anti-lock brake system and Cornering Enhanced Traction Control System aid you when turning corners. 

The Sportster S also has a Tire Pressure Monitoring System included. The right tire pressure is essential to your bike performing safely and as it should. If a tire’s pressure is too low, the light will come on so you can correct it. 

Enhanced Lift Mitigation helps you get around even if the terrain is uneven.
