I want the 4.5 gallon tank. Interesting that no 2020 sportster has the 4.5 gallon tank.

Does seem a bit odd for sure, i wonder if it's an attempt to push U.S. riders into trying the new models?
On tank size, it's another mystery to me that a country so vast gets little peanut tanks only holding enough to get from 1 filling station to another.
Probably the reason they fitted useless seats and suspension, as no need to fit good stuff because the rider has to stop so often for fuel anyway.
