Harley-Davidson completely overhauled the Sportster platform when it introduced the Sportster S in July 2021. To increase performance and reduce emissions, the Motor Company’s oldest production model got a 1250 Revolution V-twin Max liquid cooled. The brand wedged this living mass into a multi-piece trellis frame as a load-bearing element and finished it off with flat-track inspired styling.
As the new Sportster S heralds in a new era for the platform, Harley fans still love customizing their Hog. To amplify the performance-oriented design of the Sportster S, HD has launched the Wild One Accessory Collection. Consisting of bolt-on parts, the aptly named range of accessories makes it easy for customers to add extra comfort and rugged styling to the new cruiser.
Each piece features a black anodized or gloss black finish with machined aluminum highlights. From the Wild One alternator socket cover to the Wild One mirrors, the collection maintains a cohesive look that showcases the versatility of the Sportster S. Standard Wild One grips prioritize form over function with knurled rubber inserts . Wild One heated grips enhance this winning formula with variable heat settings.
The MoCo doesn’t ignore other touchpoints either, with Wild One Rider footpegs, passenger footpegs, shifter and rear brake lever improving on the original equipment. Platform-style footpegs will meet the needs of daily commuters and long-distance cyclists, while the knurled shifter peg and brake pedal champion a more industrial look.
The Sportster S’s standard bar-end mirrors certainly retain the model’s sleek styling, but the WIld One mirrors provide over-the-shoulder visibility and added style points. Functionality isn’t the Wild One’s only focus, however. To tie all the accessories together, the Wild One Timer medallion, cam sprocket covers, clutch medallion and alternator plug cover add subtle accents.
With retail prices between $49.95 and $229.95, Harley-Davidson’s Wild One collection caters to the large Sportster S customer base. The Bar and Shield may have revolutionized the Sportster platform in 2021, but it remains a prime candidate for customization with the Wild One line of accessories.
