Harley returns Nightster as 1250 performanceMarch 12, 2021
Earlier this month, motorcycle manufacturer Harley applied for the Nightster trademark. Apparently, this could mean the return of the once popular motorcycle.
Harley-Davidson has been hiding its Sportster lineup for several years now. Despite the fact that development of these bikes has been discontinued in Europe due to Euro 5 emission standards, the brand has not officially announced the new model as a replacement for the Sportster.
Originally released in 2007, the Nightster was previously a 1.2-liter version of the Sportster. Many motorcycle enthusiasts liked the dark appearance of the motorcycle. By 2013, Harley had discontinued the Nightster with variants such as the Forty-Eight and Iron 883.Since then, the company has allowed many companies to build the Nightster. However, on March 2, 2021, the company filed an application with the patent office, which hints at the return of the once popular motorcycle.
The trademark application hints at future plans for the Custom 1250.
As this entry-level model is not available in many markets around the world, the Motor Company is looking for an alternative Sportster motorcycle. The Custom 1250 is considered by many to be the perfect replacement for this old air-cooled model.
Harley already registered the 48X trademark when it acquired the rights to use the Pan America and Bronx names back in December 2017. By applying for the Nightster trademark, Harley will have the old, new and current names for the production Custom 1250. The fact that the company plans to use the name for “motorcycles and their structural parts” also confirms its intention to revive the Nightster. Whether the name Sportster comes along with it is still a big question.
Not so long ago, our publication wrote that Harley-Davidson will produce electric bicycles. Four different models will be produced at once, and the most affordable will receive a price tag of $ 3,399.
