The Bar and Sheild brand launched two new motorcycles in their Sporters lineup as part of their new strategy to add 100 new models in the coming decade. The Iron 1200 and Forty-Eight Special factory customs.

These machines pay regards to the throw-back styling trends developed all over by the custom-bike scene with the solid foundation of the Sportster platform and the punchy performance of the Evolution 1200 V-Twin engine.

Taking inspiration from what Harley customers were doing with their Sportster models since generations, the Milwaukee brand created the new Iron 1200 and Forty-Eight Special and gave them an all-new character and soul making it look very much like a custom motorcycle.
