The new Sportster will feature a circular headlight at the front along with a bikini fairing around it. This design will be quite different in comparison to the modern-looking rectangular LED headlight featured on the ‘S’ model. Apart from these updates, there will also be some other changes visible on the bike including a larger front alloy wheel shod with thinner tyres. The motorcycle will also feature a revised riding position that may be more natural against the sportier stance of the ‘S’ model. The new lower-spec Sportster will also receive a curved fender and twin shock absorbers instead of a monoshock.

The teaser also hints at the company's Revolution Max, liquid-cooled engine with a low-slung exhaust pipe. However, it remains to be seen if the bike will come with Revolution Max 1250 or the 975 unit.
