    As for the exterior, Harley-Davidson describes the Sportster S as appearing "crouched and powerful with the fuel tank and tail section frame the engine as the predominant centerpiece of the motorcycle."

    The motorcycle maker adds: "The massive front tire recalls the fenderless front end of a classic bobber, while the tail section, high-mount exhaust and slim solo seat draw inspiration from the Harley-Davidson XR750 flat tracker. The thick inverted forks and wide-profile tires suggest a high-performance sport bike."

    Riders can have their Sportster S finished in Vivid Black,  Stone Washed White Pearl, and Midnight Crimson.

    “As we lead the charge with our cutting-edge design and engineering capabilities, we are... confident that the Sportster S will resonate well with riders in the Philippines,” Harley-Davidson Managing Director for Asia Emerging Markets & India Sajeev Rajasekharan expressed.
