And The Winner Is... The Low Rider S!

We love the Low Rider S! 

In 1977, when the first Harley-Davidson® Low Rider® rolled off the line, it pushed the limits of factory custom design to a place they’d never been. Now, the Low Rider® S is taking the genre to a raw and powerful new edge. We mounted our Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 110™ engine in a nimble Dyna chassis and installed a heavy breather intake. We added tall bars, mid-mount controls and a new seat that position arms up and out and feet square, along with premium front and rear suspension, giving the rider everything required to put the massive power to good use. We stripped down and blacked-out the rest with gold accents like the tank badge and pinstripe and matching split five-spoke cast aluminum wheels. Get behind the fixed speed screen and hang on.

The Low Rider S has now been branded the best cruiser according to Cycle World!

Last week, Cycle World revealed its 2016 Ten Best Bikes list, and the Harley-Davidson Low Rider S was named the best cruiser motorcycle of the year.

The motorcycle enthusiast magazine praised the Low Rider S, saying:

“It’s wholly appropriate that the cruiser class relies on a lot of black magic to crush the riding experience out of the park. Stopwatch? Scale? Stopping distance? Total engine smoothness? Those can be important, yes, because the motorcycle needs to work exceptionally well. And this one does—but it also needs to feel so good. And in 2016 no cruiser felt better than the Harley-Davidson Low Rider S. It has great brakes, a magnificently strong 110ci V-twin, ultra-fine-shifting six-speed gearbox, and rubber engine mounts that let that rich thump reach your body and soul in just the right amount. What really sets the Low Rider S apart is that you never forget what you are riding, and it always brings a smile to your face.”
