Pros and Cons of the Harley-Davidson Forty-Eight

Since Harley’s 2010 model year, the XL1200X, otherwise known as the "Forty-Eight", has graced the streets and the urban grid with the iconic lineage of the Ironhead and Model K from days gone by. With a fat front wheel and a 1200 cc air-cooled evolution engine, the machine has delivered low-end torque, personality, and a rumble that undeniably echoes all-things Harley.

The Forty-Eight was designed similarly to the "Dark" Nightster XL Sportster style but is complete with a classic-style 1948 style small peanut tank, forward controls, a wider front tire, and chopped front fender. The low suspension and fat front end of the Forty-Eight promises a low and slow ride that is smooth and solid, but what are the pros and cons of the Harley-Davidson Sportster Forty-Eight?
