KEY FEATURES WHEN NEW
The new Low Rider responds with assertive authority to rider input, the unrelenting thrust of its Twin Cam 103™ powertrain harnessed in an agile Harley-Davidson Dyna® chassis. Michelin® Scorcher™ tires are mated with suspension calibrated for all-day comfort and precise handling, featuring stout 49mm forks and new coil-over rear shocks, both with tri-rate springs. Dual front disc brakes deliver ample stopping power. Sculpted header pipes feed a 2-into-1 exhaust that emits a satisfying, throaty tone. Stop light-to-stop light or on the open highway, the Low Rider delivers exhilarating performance
Informed by the same accelerated, customer-led product development process that propelled Project RUSHMORE, the new Low Rider is designed to fit a broad range of riders in a confident, comfortable riding position straight from the factory. Harley-Davidson leveraged the science of ergonomics to develop a “perfect fit” rider position utilizing three key features: a two-position seat, an adjustable handlebar riser, which can each be easily adjusted by the dealer using simple hand tools, and footpegs that are relocated two inches forward. The Low Rider still lives up to its name; seat height is just 25.4 inches.
“We wanted the new Low Rider to offer an expanded comfort envelope, and worked in three stages toward that goal,” said Paul Weiss, lead engineer on the Low Rider project. “We started with live feedback from riders of all sizes, and then employed Pro/Engineer computer simulations of posture and riding positions to project the best locations for rider controls.”
Computer-generated rider triangles representing the extremes of the biometric targets — 5’ 1” to 6’ 1” in height — were overlaid on the Dyna chassis. These triangles depicted not just the reach of the respective riders, but also the more critical comfort zones within the range of reach.
“We next had to design solutions we could put into production,” said Weiss. “Inspired by the idea that you’d adjust a car seat to meet the controls, we devised the two-position Low Rider seat that can move the rider forward or backward 1.5 inches. By next adding handlebar adjustability, we were able to accommodate the riders in our defined comfort envelope. The final change was relocating the footpegs two inches forward of the previous Dyna mid-mount position.”
Harley-Davidson Engineering and Styling departments next collaborated on the design of a seat with a removable bolster, secured by two concealed screws, to provide the desired range of seating position. A new headlamp visor bolts to the upper triple clamp and provides the fixture to support the adjustable handlebar riser, secured by four easy-access hex-head bolts.
“The Low Rider represents intense collaboration between the Harley-Davidson Styling and Engineering staffs,” said lead stylist Tony Pink. “Engineering created some innovative solutions to expand the comfort envelope of the Low Rider, and our styling team successfully incorporated those features while maintaining the premium finish our customers associate with Harley-Davidson.”
The original Low Rider set a styling benchmark when it was introduced in 1977, and Harley-Davidson designers went back to that milestone motorcycle for inspiration in creating a new Low Rider with a look that’s timeless and authentic.
“Our styling team envisioned a new motorcycle with rugged, universal appeal,” said Pink. “The use of wrinkle-black paint on the powertrain, wheels, console and trim are key to the new look. The visor and suspended headlamp are also touchstone styling elements we wanted on this new Low Rider. Like the original, this new Low Rider rolls on cast-aluminum wheels; the new ones feature this tough split five-spoke design. We’ve achieved a look that’s purebred, classic Harley-Davidson.”
The iconic Low Rider® motorcycle offers timeless Harley-Davidson custom cruiser styling and exciting performance harnessed in an agile Dyna® chassis. The suspension is calibrated for all-day comfort and precise handling. Dual front disc brakes deliver ample stopping power. Sculpted header pipes feed a 2-into-1 exhaust that emits a satisfying, throaty tone. The innovative ergonomic design easily adjusts to provide a perfect fit to most riders.
Premium Custom Style
From wheel to wheel, the all-new Low Rider® model is a low riding feast for the eyes, loaded with high-end finishes as it holds true to the heritage of all the Low Rider® motorcycles that have rolled down the streets of the world before it. From the 70’s inspired seat to the chunky mag wheels to the true, sculpted beauty and finish on its 103 cubic inch V-Twin engine, this is premium Harley-Davidson custom style to the bone. So even though you’re riding low, you’re doing it in high style.
Chunky Mag Wheels
The all-new Low Rider® motorcycle rolls straight out of hot rod street culture on chunky mag wheels. The look is true, pure American muscle. There’s no substitute for it anywhere in the world.
Wrinkle Black and Chrome Twin Cam 103™ Engine
At the center of the Low Rider® model you’ll notice a Twin Cam 103™ engine that gets the full-on wrinkle black and chrome treatment. And at the center of that, you’ll notice a pork chop style air cleaner. True to form, the engine is the jewel of the motorcycle. Instantly recognizable as a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle on any street in the world. But if there were any confusion, the sound that it puts out would clear things up in a hurry.
True Custom Details
Here’s what your eyes discover on a journey over the Low Rider® motorcycle: A polished front end, wrinkle black and chrome powertrain, chrome-plated fender strut covers that give a nod to the past and feature wrinkle black cutouts that match the Low Rider® badging on the battery box cover. The headlight is capped off with a classically styled eyebrow that serves double duty as both the headlight and handlebar riser mount. Even the seat cover gets the custom treatment. It’s a perforated material that highlights the performance prowess at the heart of this great motorcycle.
2-Into-1 One Exhaust
A new 2-into-1 exhaust that flows like liquid chrome adds some eye-popping custom style to the Low Rider® model. You’ll also like what it does for your ears. It’s tuned for a deep, rich rumble that no rider can ever get enough of.
Wrinkle Black Console with Speedo and Tach
There’s a new wrinkle black console with a speedo and tach mounted on the Low Rider® motorcycle’s classic Fat Bob® tank. The look ties in with the wrinkle black paint on the powertrain and fender strut covers. And gives a nice, subtle contrast to the Vivid Black paint on the tank. Because there’s no such thing as too many shades of black.
Pure Harley-Davidson Styling
Feast your eyes on the Twin Cam 103™ engine and there’s no mistaking its roots. This is authentic Harley-Davidson style through and through with an attention to detail you won’t find from any other motorcycle company. Black powder-coated heads and cylinders are highlighted by machined cooling fin tips and chrome rocker covers. It’s a jewel machined out of metal. Pure. Dripping with power. From the classic edge of the cooling fins to the clean lines of cases and covers—the Twin Cam 103™ engine makes an ironclad statement about holding on to what’s right and staying true to what satisfies.
Six-Speed Cruise Drive® Transmission
You want a ride that rumbles—not begs for mercy—when you lean on it a little. The Six-Speed Cruise Drive® transmission provides smooth, quiet shifting and reduces engine speed on the highway, so you get a better match between engine turnover and road speed. It’s a rare ride when a bike responds like this, and a low growl goes a long way when you’re opening up the road ahead.
Twin Cam 103™ Engine Heritage
The knowledge of what makes an engine truly move a rider runs deep at The Motor Company, and it was put to good use when we created the Twin Cam 103™ engine. We sweated bullets perfecting every cubic inch, pushing design and technology forward. And we did it all without compromising one bit of Harley-Davidson’s unique styling. Evolved, yet carrying on the legacy of the Flathead, Knucklehead, Panhead, Shovelhead, Evolution®, Twin Cam 88®; and Twin Cam 96™ engines that came before. The performance and durability are a direct result of the untold miles logged on the V-Twin since 1909, and the proud heritage that comes from a century’s worth of commitment to life on two wheels.
Twin Cam 103™ Engine Innovation
Fire up the Twin Cam 103™ engine and feel the low-end torque unleashed. Thanks to the lightweight piston design, delivery of the added power is more refined than ever. Then put your foot on the shifter and feel how the engine and Six-Speed Cruise Drive® transmission were designed to work together. Six speeds. A strong driveline and strong internal parts. Low routine maintenance. And a low cruising rpm couldn’t feel better.
Twin Cam 103™ Engine Power
Live your ride to the power of Twin Cam 103™. The air- cooled Twin Cam 103™ Harley Davidson® engine delivers more stump pulling torque, while its Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection jetting gives crisp, lively throttle reaction. It’s a performance punch that you’ll appreciate when passing, climbing hills, or rolling with luggage packed or a passenger in back—all under that signature Motor Company rumble. And it comes at lower cruising rpm, so you ride more smoothly, with less engine vibration and better highway fuel economy.
Perfect Fit Ergonomics
Whether you’re 5’1” or 6’1”, thanks to perfect fit ergonomics, you can dial the new Low Rider® motorcycle in to fit you like a motorcycle glove. We developed perfect fit through an innovative look at how riders fit on a motorcycle using both simulation and actual rider studies. The result is a unique handlebar riser that provides 2.4” of movement fore and aft and an innovative, yet simple, seat design, which allows you to select from two riding positions that offer an additional 1.5” of adjustment fore and aft. This is pure Harley-Davidson steel tailored to your body.

The paragraph descriptions for the pre-owned bikes are generic, what the factory used when the bikes were new so they might not be precise. The bike may have been modified. Take them with a grain of salt. Same with the specifications, those are stating how the bike was spec’d stock, when new, not necessarily as it is at this very moment. Our salespeople will be glad to answer any detailed questions should anything in the generic descriptions be confusing. Also, there are over 30,000 prices and loads of specifications on this website, we do not warrant that is entirely error free. Thanks, - Barnett Harley-Davidson
