The 2013 Harley-Davidson Sportster Forty-Eight XL1200X is one of the garage custom motorcycles in the Harley Dark Custom line. This bike cruises down the road with a 1200 cc Evolution engine – an engine with a true Harley-Davidson soul.

New for 2013, the Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight comes with optional Hard Candy Custom, a large metal flake paint finish that recalls the iconic styling of 1970s custom bikes, and offers blazing color showing through a deep, rich finish. The Forty-Eight also has an authentic peanut tank which first appeared on Harley-Davidson back in 1948 (its name origin) and has been a defining Sportster feature ever since. The front end of the bike looks beefy with its fat MT90 tyre. The Harley Sportster Forty-Eight look is enhanced with the lowered front and rear suspension. Add a low seat height, and you have a serious looking motorcycle with an approachable riding stance.

Take sometime and look over the features of this Harley Dark Custom, including the unique under mount motorcycle mirrors.

The Harley Forty-Eight is one of the many Harley Sportster bikes, each with a different style. Check out the Sportster XL883L, and all the other Sportster custom bikes including the Iron 883.
