Harley-Davidson Low Rider® S to return for 2020
The lean, mean, burnout machine is back. When Harley-Davidson® launched the Low Rider® S in 2016 with its Screamin’ Eagle® tuned 110 engine, it was an instant hit. But it was only in the range for two years before the Dyna® line-up became the Softails®, so used ones now sell for more than the original RRP. For 2020 its back alongside a whole load of new tech for the tourers.
The centre-piece of any Harley is its engine and the new Low Rider® S comes with the 114ci version of the Milwaukee-Eight® powertrain. This 1868cc behemoth puts out a whopping 119ftlb of torque at 3000rpm, which is more than the old v-twin Panigales.
The engine breathes through Gloss Black ventilator intake and blows through a set of 2 – 2 shotgun pipes. Naturally the handling has received an update too.
The Low Rider® S joins all the rest of the Dyna® family by replacing the old twin shock swingarm with a softail® frame supported by a hidden monoshock. The front end now features a set of 43mm USD forks, which should improve things over the old RWU models, while rake has been reduced by two degrees to sharpen things up even further.
