2020 Harley-Davidson Sportster Roadster Reviews, Comparisons, And Competition

Cycle World contributor Joseph Gustafson took his first ride aboard the Harley-Davidson Roadster in 2016, noting that the platform is a potent and enticing platform. “Should you buy it? If you are looking for the best-handling new Sportster, then you should get it. At $11,200 [2016 price] it's a relative bargain in the Sportster lineup considering the extra braking power and improved suspension, plus you get those striking split-five-spoke cast wheels.”

The Roadster’s competition includes the Triumph Thruxton R, BMW R nineT, and Yamaha XSR900. CW put all four of these head to head in a 2016 comparison.
