Harley-Davidson Sportster S bookings open in India, launch by late-2021
Harley-Davidson Sportster S is slated to be launched in the Indian market later this year. Now the company has officially commenced bookings for the new model in India ahead of its launch in the next few months.
The new Sportster S will be Harley's second major launch in India in 2021 after the debut of the Pan America 1250 adventure touring model. It will come based on the new Revolution Max 1250 engine sourced from the Pan America 1250. Although, the engine will be a bit differently tuned for the new Sportser S model.

For the record, the new Sportster S previously broke cover as the Harley-Davidson 1250 Custom. It comes with much buffed-up and intimidating exteriors featuring muscular panels and meaty tyres. It also benefits from a short front mudguard with old-school classic bobbers inspired looks.
Some of the key features on the bike include a round, 4-inch TFT screen that can be paired to a smartphone using Bluetooth connectivity. Other highlights on the bike include its all-LED lighting package with a Daymaker Signature LED headlamp with Fat Bob-inspired looks.
The bike gets a new 1,252 cc v-twin liquid-cooled Revolution Max 1250 engine. This unit is capable of delivering 121 bhp of maximum power and 127 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm.
