Default My view on the new Sport S

Hi all, I wanted to share that quick sketch with you because I think that the new Sportster would look better if it had a more traditional look (while keeping the new techs of course).

Smaller front wheel with double disk brakes, dual pipe with mufflers exhaust, classic chopped fenders, side mount plate, low dragbar with inverted mirrors, flatter radiator… More space around the engine, lower protection with HD writings..

For the one interested I’m on Instagram @smdc_art :

Nice concept. I like it when a example is shown instead of a just , " I wanna " ?

Looks easier to work on with open access points. Over here. Even the right to fix things is political.

Wow, that reads like total madness ��.

I think the MoCo has completely changed its vision of the customers, that new bike looks like a modern roadster/power cruiser but not like something you can easily customise.

I like the look of the more conventional exhaust layout in your drawing, but I suspect that the pipes and mufflers that Harley designed for the S are part of the power package.

The gas tank "sportster" is spelled wrong.

And a big part of meeting EURO5 emissions standards.

Totally a shame, a common mistake for French people, apologies …

Apologies are not necessary. I can usually spell correctly but I've never been able to draw.

You've done a nice job.

Morelle is MY douchebag Representative. He is a rabid anti gun, anti constitution twit!

Ask me how I really feel.
