2022 - 2023

For several years now, Harley-Davidson has been running a special line of motorcycles it likes to call Icons Collections. In 2022 they released a part of this collection the El Diablo. Based on the Low Rider, the El Diablo is meant to remind us of the legendary 1983 Harley-Davidson FXRT. The devil is powered by the Low Rider standard Milwaukee-Eight 117 which develops 105 hp at 5,020 rpm and a torque of 168 Nm at 3,500 rpm. These numbers are achieved in part thanks to a tuned heavy breather intake and high flow exhaust. Setting it apart from the stock Low Rider, El Diablo has a sign...




 

2017 - Present

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...




 

2017 - Present

There is something about the steady pulse of power from an air-cooled Twin Cam 103 engine that works its way into a rider and won’t let go. Once you’ve experienced it you understand. Nothing else in the world of motorized transportation could be as satisfying. There are perfectly rational explanations for this. The lightweight piston design and refined delivery of power. The strong driveline and bulletproof internal parts. The way engine and 6-Speed Cruise Drive transmission work flawlessly together to carry you down the highway at a relaxed, easy-riding rpm. But rational explanations never ...




 

2015 - 2016

The House of Milwaukee has designed the 2016 MY Harley Davidson Low Rider for the most nostalgic among Harley fans, but without excluding the younger population, it retaining an overall modern look. Lace-spoked, chromed wheels, a black console with a speedometer and a tachometer, a chromed two-into-one exhaust system, as well as a two-tone paint remind of the classic American power cruisers. At its heart lies an air-cooled, four-stroke, 1690cc, Twin Cam 103 powerplant paired to a six-speed manual transmission, that reaches its peak torque of 126 Nm at 3500 rpm.

The 2015 MY Harley Davidson Low Rider is a motorcycle that successfully combines classic, 70's, good-looks with 21st century technology, and the result is spectacular indeed.
