Harley-Davidson has launched the Low Rider S in India; the newest entrant in the manufacturer’s Softail family. While you can read our review on the Low Rider S, we list down five unique features of the motorcycle.
The Low Rider S, like its name suggests, is based on the Low Rider which is already available in India. However, unlike the latter’s chrome-laden bodywork, the Low Rider S adopts a custom-inspired styling. It sports completely blacked-out components, drivetrain, and suspension. The motorcycle also gets a headlamp cowl that houses a full-LED headlamp. Moreover, apart from offering a slightly upright position, the Low Rider S also comes with a single-seat to complete its sporty appeal.
Harley-Davidson has paired the blacked-out components on the Low Rider S with custom-inspired colours. The motorcycle is available in Vivid Black and Barracuda Silver.
The Low Rider S is built on the same Softail chassis as the standard Low Rider. However, it gets a bigger and more powerful Milwaukee 114 engine with a displacement of 1,868cc. This motor produces 155Nm of torque at 5020rpm and comes mated to a six-speed gearbox.
Performance focused hardware
The ‘S’ suffix in the Low Rider’s name denotes performance and Harley has equipped the motorcycle with hardware to complement that character. The Low Rider S gets inverted forks up front and dual discs at the front unlike the telescopic forks and single disc setup on the standard model. Harley Davidson has also given the Low Rider S a sharper, 28-degree rake instead of the 30-degree setup on the Low Rider.
Harley-Davidson India has priced the Low Rider S at Rs 14.69 lakh (ex-showroom). This positions it a premium of around Rs 95,000 over the standard Low Rider.
