    HARLEY-Davidson has released a new Roadster model which will join the Dark Custom line-up.

    Brad Richards from Harley-Davidson said the Roadster is inspired by classic American racing motorcycles, similar to the Sportster from the ’50s and ’60s, saying “we wanted to give the roadster some DNA from the high-performance KHR models of the mid-’50s, and later Sportsters tuned for the drag strip.”

    “Those bikes had fenders cut to the struts, the small fuel tank, and were stripped to their bare essentials to achieve a singular performance purpose.”

    Those looking for modern performance should be pleased, with the new Roadster featuring mid-mounted foot controls, lightweight spoke-wheels, dual front brakes with ABS and longer travel suspension.

    The Harley-Davidson Roadster model will be offered in four colour choices: Vivid Black with a charcoal denim pinstripe; Black Denim with a red pinstripe; Velocity Red Sunglo with a red pinstripe; and two-tone Billet Silver/Vivid Black with a burgundy pinstripe.

    Pricing for the new Harley-Davidson Roadster starts at $19,495 ride away.
