Function
Frame
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

01
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 utilize the latest chassis control, electronic brake control and powertrain technology.
02
Weight Distribution Using light-weight materials and shifting components to new places has helped reduce overall weight. Centralizing 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.
03
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.
