Harley-Davidson's motorcycles are not known for their top speed, but rather for their cruising ability and distinctive style. The bikes are heavy compared to sports-bikes, and this brings the speed down. For example, the 2011 version of the 1200 Nightster Sportster weighs a massive 255 Kilogram.
Older versions of the Sportster don't attain this speed. The 2001 Sportster 1200 Customs have a top speed of 106.9mph.
