Harley-Davidson is synonymous with classic motorcycles in many parts of the world. But their newer models are every bit as awesome as their older lines. The new Harley-Davidson Low Rider S is a beautiful bike that combines powerful highway performance, stability and ergonomic support for street driving, and picture-perfect looks. Here are some reasons why.
Visually, the Harley-Davidson Low Rider S is a beautiful beast, with a substantial frame and all the trimmings. The look of the Low Rider S combines classic Harley style with the latest advances in engineering, giving it a look both timeless and timely. A blacked-out engine, gold split-5 wheel spokes, a black Tommy Gun dual exhaust, a chopped rear fender, a Wrinkle Black console, and a black finish all over make sure that you’ll be noticed riding this bike around town. This is one motorcycle that pairs perfectly with classic black leather and jeans.
Of course, looks aren’t everything. Ergonomics are also important because a long cruise followed by a visit to the doctor for chronic back pain is no fun at all. In terms of ergonomics, the Low Rider S is optimized for a highway experience. The forward 5.5-inch handlebar riser and high quality solo seat put the driver in a position perfect for long, flat miles of road, keeping you comfortable and in control for the long haul. The mid-mount footpegs and the frame support up to a 30-degree angle, letting you support an aggressive posture. Overall, the Low Rider S marries comfort and power.
The core of the Low Rider S’s excellent driving abilities is the Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 110 engine, a 1801 cc power plant capable of delivering all the power and speed you could ever need. With a peak performance estimated at 115 pound-feet of torque at 3,500 RPM, this engine will have you flying down your highways of choice. The bike’s Dyna frame and six-speed Cruise Drive transmission keep the power flowing to the wheels and the motorcycle cruising on the highway. Excellent suspension featuring enhanced Ride Emulsion shocks on the rear and a 49mm cartridge at the front give the Low Rider S handling enough to spare.
The Low Rider S is not a light bike, clocking in at 674 pounds, but face it — if you’re a Harley fan, you probably aren’t looking for some light, insubstantial bike anyways. The bike’s heavy weight makes it stronger and more resilient, resulting in a purchase that will keep value and resist damage. The Low Rider S is a vehicle for powerful highway cruising and fast drives on long stretches of road, not for hairpin turns. That said, the bike performs surprisingly well going into corners and gives you an incredible stable ride.
The quest for the perfect ride will continue into the future, but Harley has thrown down a major gauntlet with the Low Rider S. Its power, performance, and style make it a must-have for serious motorcycle enthusiasts. Get yours today, and enjoy the highways the way they were meant to be experienced.
