2022 Nightster

The Harley-Davidson® Nightster motorcycle is the next chapter in the Harley-Davidson Sportster legacy – a leap forward in performance and design built on a foundation laid 65 years ago.

  • Forward riding position
  • Mid-mount foot controls
  • Low
  • Screen
  • Rider safety enhancements available
This is the right bike for
  • Fans of the classic Sportster silhouette paired with a Revolution Max engine and advanced features
  • Riders looking for a quick and nimble motorcycle with razor-sharp handling
  • Enthusiasts who appreciate the heritage and feel of a Harley-Davidson motorcycle in an understated package
Air box cover The most obvious resemblance to its Sportster lineage is the shape of the airbox cover, which shares its profile with the classic Sportster model fuel tank.
Wheels The Nightster is equipped with a 19-inch front wheel and a 16-inch rear wheel, dimensions selected to deliver nimble performance and distinctive style.
Exposed dual rear shocks Modeled after a previous Sportster chassis, Nightster features exposed dual rear shocks that provide a critical style line at the rear of the motorcycle.


Liquid Cooled Revolution Max 975T

Performance when you need it, the Revolution Max 975T engine is a liquid-cooled V-Twin tuned to make tremendous torque at low RPM, delivering strong acceleration from the start with robust power through the mid-range.



Nightster does not use a traditional hoop-style frame. Instead, the powertrain is used as a stressed member significantly reducing weight and resulting in a very stiff chassis. Each component has been designed to be compact, strong, and lightweight.

Ride, Handling and Comfort
Rider Safety Enhancements Nightster comes equipped with a collection of technologies that are designed to increase a rider’s confidence during unexpected situations or while riding through adverse road conditions. Rider Safety Enhancements are designed to adjust and match motorcycle performance to available traction during acceleration, deceleration, and braking. The systems are electronic and utilise the latest chassis control, electronic brake control and powertrain technology.
Weight Distribution Using light-weight materials and shifting components to new places has helped reduce overall weight. Centralising the mass of the engine and fuel cell location low in the chassis makes the bike feel very light, enhancing performance and improving rider confidence when mounting the bike, maneuvering at low speeds, carving through corners and when resting at a stop.
Ride Modes Selectable Ride Modes electronically control the motorcycle’s performance to better match the road conditions, or the experience you want. You can select from Road Mode, Rain Mode or Sport Mode. The system works by adjusting power delivery, engine braking, ABS and TCS settings to each specific mode.
