2016 Harley-Davidson Low Rider S Review

2016 Harley-Davidson Low Rider S on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

The new Low Rider® S takes the factory custom genre to a raw and powerful new edge. Get behind the fixed speed screen and hang on...

The Low Rider S joins the Fat Boy® S and Softail Slim® S as the third model in the Harley-Davidson S Series of cruiser motorcycles, bikes designed to deliver maximum performance with styling inspired by global custom motorcycle culture. Powered by the Screamin’ Eagle® Twin Cam 110™ engine with upgraded suspension and brakes, the Low Rider S is stripped down and ready for action.

 

HARLEY-DAVIDSON LOW RIDER S PUSHES CRUISER PERFORMANCE TO THE EDGE
New Performance Cruiser Features Screamin' Eagle Muscle and Stripped-Down Style

MILWAUKEE (January 27, 2016) - The original Harley-Davidson® Low Rider® model pushed the limits of a factory-custom motorcycle. Now Harley-Davidson delivers a new generation of performance and blacked-out style with the mid-year launch of the Low Rider® S model.

Powered by the Screamin' Eagle® Twin Cam 110™ engine, the Low Rider S model joins the recently released Fat Boy® S and Softail Slim® S models as the third member of Harley-Davidson's S Series cruiser lineup, bikes designed to deliver maximum performance with styling inspired by global custom motorcycle culture. Upgraded suspension and brakes complete the performance package of a motorcycle that's stripped down and ready for action.

"Riders have been asking when Harley-Davidson would build another aggressive, performance-based bike like the legendary FXR models," said Harley-Davidson Director of Styling Brad Richards. "This is our answer to that question. The Low Rider S is informed by the current tall-bike custom trend and our own styling heritage, but also seeks to redefine Harley-Davidson performance for a new generation of riders. We wanted to really connect the rider to the road by delivering instantaneous power and agile handling with a bike that's trimmed to the essentials."

Those essential elements begin with the powertrain. The Screamin' Eagle Twin Cam 110 engine is a powerhouse V-Twin and the largest-displacement engine Harley-Davidson installs at the factory. Equipped with a Screamin' Eagle® Heavy Breather performance intake and Fat Bob-style 2-into-2 exhaust, this engine pounds out 115 foot pounds of peak torque at 3500 rpm - 13 percent more power than the standard Low Rider model. A heavy-duty clutch delivers that power to a 6-speed Cruise Drive® transmission. Cruise control enabled by electronic throttle control is standard equipment. The entire powertrain and exhaust is finished in a combination of gloss black and wrinkle black powdercoat.

The Low Rider S model is equipped to be as maneuverable as it is powerful. Premium Ride nitrogen gas-charged emulsion shocks and a Premium Ride cartridge fork deliver exceptional handling and comfort. Front and rear suspension components react quickly to small bumps and keep the tires in contact with the road surface for confident, controlled handling and braking performance. Triple disc brakes with dual floating front rotors are equipped with standard Anti-Lock Braking System. A new solo seat, flat drag bar on 5.5-inch-tall risers and mid-mount controls put the rider in an aggressive hands-up position square over the pegs. Seat height remains low, at 26.6 inches.

The rider views the road over a distinctive speed screen that gives the Low Rider S motorcycle instant identity on road.

"When you ride fast in this upright position, you need a little wind protection," said Harley-Davidson Senior Stylist Dais Nagao. "Then the way we inset the headlamp deeper into the speed screen gives the Low Rider S an aggressive face. It's a powerful way to communicate the personality of the motorcycle."

The solo seat, chopped rear fender and side-mount license plate keep the rear end uncluttered. Because no other color makes a statement like black, the Low Rider S is offered only with Vivid Black on the sheet metal. Other black finishes maintain the dark theme from the forks to the console to the rear fender struts. The single exception: new Magnum Gold lightweight cast-aluminum wheels, a finish inspired by the gold-tone magnesium wheels used on race cars in the 1960s. A gold tank badge pays homage to the 1977 XLCR Café Racer model.

HARLEY-DAVIDSON STRENGTHENS MOST POWERFUL CRUISER LINEUP
Unveils New Low Rider S and CVO Pro Street Breakout Bikes at X Games Aspen

MILWAUKEE (JANUARY 27, 2016) – Today at X Games Aspen, Harley-Davidson unveiled the Low Rider® S and the Harley-Davidson® Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO)™ Pro Street Breakout® motorcycles – two additions to its 2016 model-year lineup, which is the most powerful collection of cruisers in the brand’s 113-year history.

Raw, dark and trimmed to the essentials, the new Low Rider S motorcycle is the most powerful non-CVO™ Dyna® cruiser ever offered by Harley-Davidson. The Screamin’ Eagle® Twin Cam 110™ engine, Screamin’ Eagle® Heavy Breather performance intake and Fat Bob-style 2-into-2 exhaust deliver 115 foot pounds of peak torque at 3500 rpm. Premium suspension and brakes complete the performance package. The new limited-edition bike joins the Fat Boy® S and Softail Slim® S models as the third in the new line of S series cruisers for the 2016 Harley-Davidson® lineup.

The new CVO Pro Street Breakout motorcycle rewrites the factory-custom book with obsessive attention to styling detail. This limited-edition motorcycle has a new, darker look and utilizes cutting-edge finishes and textures. Menacing, muscular and steeped in drag racing attitude, the CVO Pro Street Breakout motorcycle matches the high-intensity performance of the Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 110 engine with a look that is pure American street machine.

“X Games Aspen is the ideal global stage to unveil our newest motorcycles that take cruiser performance, attitude and design to a whole new level,” said Shelley Paxton, Vice President of Marketing and Brand, Harley-Davidson Motor Company.

2016 Model Lineup Highlights
• The new Iron 883™ and Forty-Eight® models join the Harley-Davidson Street® motorcycle to assert Harley-Davidson’s leadership with its Dark Custom® motorcycle line-up inspired by the rebellious spirit of the past updated with modern design and performance.
• High Output Twin Cam 103™ engines upgrade the power for all Softail® and Dyna® models (except Street Bob®) in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
• The convenience of electronic cruise control is available on all Harley-Davidson Softail models. Enabled by new electronic throttle control, cruise control is standard equipment on 2016 Heritage Softail® Classic, Softail® Deluxe, Fat Boy S and Softail Slim S models and available as an accessory for all other 2016 Softail models.
• All 2016 Sportster® models tame rough roads with all-new front and rear suspension and improved seats working together to enhance rider comfort and control.
• Harley-Davidson’s touring segment leadership grows with the addition of the Road Glide® Ultra motorcycle to the Project RUSHMORE lineup and the refresh of the iconic Heritage Softail Classic model.



 

2016 Harley-Davidson Low Rider S www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Rule the street.

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.
