Harley-Davidson is not exactly known for reinventing something that already works. And yet, it replaced its traditional Keihin-powered carburetors with a piston-assisted fuel injection system. This was a major turning point for the Sportster series. And among its earliest beneficiaries is the 2007 Harley Davidson Sportster 1200. The prestige associated with the Harley-Davidson brand and the Sportster lineage is simply undeniable. Many consumers purchase its line of motorcycles for this very reason. Enhancements made to the motorcycle in 2007 strengthened this truth further. The ’07 Sportster 1200 is the last in the series to sport an air-cooled, 45° inclined V-type 4-stroke Evolution® mill with an OHV-pushrod design. Piston displacement is unchanged at 1,199.5 cm3 (73.2 in3) but is now mated to an all-new Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI) instead of constant-velocity Keihin carbs. Conversely, compression and bore-stroke ratios stay fixed at 9.7:1 and 88.9 x 96.77 mm (3.50 x 3.81 inches). Overall, the new engine configuration lends to a 110–140 mph (177–225 km/h) top speed rating, 58–68 bhp (43.25–49.6 kW) @ 5,500 RPM horsepower, and 90–107 Nm (9.19–10.9 kgf-m, 66.5–79 ft-lbf) @ 4,000 RPM torque output. Except for top speed, torque output, and some RPM values, everything else remained the same as the previous years. A 5-speed constant-mesh manual transmission (sans reverse gear) and a clutch assembly found in previous models deliver power to the wheels. These systems mate to a final belt drive that handles wheelspin. The shift sequence is still 1-N-2-3-4-5 but with shifting made easy – thanks to an 8% reduced clutch effort. And with post-2004 rubber mounts to boot, the 2007 Sportster 1200 models feel smooth off the line and less reminiscent of their trademark “teeth rattle.” The Sportster’s overall dimensions are 90.3 x 32.7 x 45.7 inches (2,293.6 x 830.6 x 1,160.8 mm – L x W x H), with saddle height measuring at 26.5 inches (loaded) and 29.9 inches (unloaded). Front and rear GAWRs are unchanged at 152 Kg (335 lbs.) and 302 Kg (665 lbs.), totaling a 1,000-pound GVWR. This Sporty is all stock. New tires front and rear, new fork seals as well, and a passenger back rest. This bike like all our bikes will be fully serviced, inspected and detailed at the time you take delivery.
