#2 – Harley-Davidson Sportster Seventy-Two


It started with the bobbed Nightster we reviewed in 2007 and edged a little closer to center with the Forty-Eight. But the Motor Company nailed the Hipster’s bull’s-eye with the 2012 release of the Seventy-Two. Need evidence? Admire the hand-held cinematography, the plaintive music and the flannel-clad actors in H-D’s official marketing video, here.). The chopper-esque XL was such a demographic hit that in 2013 the entire H-D line is now available with the same Hard Candy metal-flake paint option. Nothing says “hipster” like having someone else do the work for you.
