Harley-Davidson XL 1200 V SPORTSTER Seventy-Two 2014

After teleporting us to 1948, would the Sportster 1200 take us to 1972? Not at all ! Although Harley strives to decline many versions of its models, tinting them with the past and nostalgia, the Sportster Seventy-Two does not look in the ’60s..

Its mini ape-hanger handlebars, its riot of chrome, its saddle carved from a board and its forward controls are inspired by the atmosphere of the first choppers. The spirit that runs through metal and chrome is that of California. And the 72 is the name of a 25 km long road in Los Angeles, best known for its gatherings of followers of custom culture..

Like the vast majority of Sportsters, the 72 has offered more security for the Sportster 48 since 2014: the manufacturer adds its HD Smart security system allowing keyless starting and ABS as standard. A lot of braking changes are also on call. New calipers bite a larger disc up front (300mm) but unchanged at the rear (260mm). The aluminum master cylinder is also new, for less friction and more feeling. The Sportster also features a new electrical system, redesigned controls with a switch on the left to navigate the new speedometer screen. Note also the evolution for the exhaust and the oil tank.

Sparkling, full of panache, the Sportster Seventy-Two is a breath of light in the Harley-Davidson universe. What a look! The front escapes lightly, the stern hugs the road, while the engine seems to want to live out its debauchery alone. In addition to the ubiquitous metallic reflections, the 72 does not lack styling effects, like its spoked rims circled with white piping on the tires, the ridiculously large peanuts tank, minimalist mudguards, its very flat solo seat and his handlebars at 1 meter 10 from the ground.
To move its quarter ton, the Sportster relies on its 1202 cm3 twin delivering almost 10 mkg of torque. A 30 year old block that has gently evolved to this day to give the rider the typical taste of Milwaukee.
