2021 Harley-Davidson Low Rider S: GO A DIFFERENT ROUTE.

Introducing the 2021 Harley-Davidson Low Rider S…

High bars and horsepower define this performance-first cruiser; premium suspension components are tuned for aggressive riding stoked by the power of a Milwaukee-Eight® 114 engine; styling cues inspired by the coastal build scene.

The Low Rider S is a blacked-out performance-cruiser with a style that’s as aggressive as its ride. Loads of Milwaukee-Eight 114 Engine torque for blasting off from stop lights, hitting entrance ramps, and rolling on the passing power. Pure sound with a soul-satisfying rumble. Blacked-out finishes, moto-style bars with 4-inch risers, and mini speed screen let everyone know that this machine wasn’t built for those who want to take the conventional route. The defining element of the tall-bike style —the 1-inch diameter motocross-style handlebar is mounted on 4-inch risers to put you in an aggressive riding position.

Authentic heritage meets modern technology for power, style, and the unadulterated riding experience – around town or along country roads.

A blacked-out, factory custom performance cruiser.

2021 HARLEY-DAVIDSON STREET BOB 114 MODEL ADDS GRITTY PERFORMANCE TO CRUISER LINEUP

Harley-Davidson® Softail® motorcycles combine modern power and technology with authentic American styling to offer a pure riding experience. New for the 2021 Softail line, the Street Bob® model receives a displacement upgrade with the Milwaukee-Eight® 114 engine in addition to its stripped-down styling and no-nonsense performance for a new model, Street Bob 114.

Also, new for the 2021 Softail models, the legendary Fat Boy® 114 model is restyled with brilliant chrome. Eight Harley-Davidson Softail models range in style from classic to custom to gritty, and each is ready to roll the boulevard or chase backroad adventure.

The Harley-Davidson Softail chassis offers the look of a classic hardtail frame, but is underpinned by modern suspension for a smooth ride and outstanding handling. A single coil-over shock located between the frame and swingarm is out of view below the seat. The chassis design is optimized to reduce weight without sacrificing stiffness. The rigid-mounted Milwaukee-Eight V-Twin engine further stiffens the entire chassis and contributes to a platform that delivers strong acceleration and responsive handling and braking performance.

The Milwaukee-Eight® V-Twin engine design with 45-degree cylinder angle maintains classic Harley-Davidson look-sound-feel. Because it is rigid mounted in the frame, the engine is equipped with dual counter-balancers to cancel primary vibration at idle for improved rider and passenger comfort. Four-valve cylinder heads (two exhaust and two intake valves per head, eight total) promote airflow through the engine and contribute to power output, and dual spark plugs ensure more complete combustion to maximize power and efficiency. Advanced cylinder head design, dual knock sensors, and precision cooling allow a 10.0:1 compression ratio for strong torque output and acceleration, while a single camshaft helps reduce mechanical noise so a richer exhaust tone can predominate.

 

NEW Softail Performance Accessories

 Screamin’ Eagle® Softail® Models High-Flow Exhaust System

The Screamin’ Eagle High-Flow Exhaust for Softail models provides bolt-on performance and is optimized for use with Screamin’ Eagle Milwaukee-Eight® 128/131 Stage IV Kits or the Screamin’ Eagle 131 Crate Engine in Softail models. It helps extract maximum horsepower and torque and further boosts performance by reducing exhaust system weight by more than 20 percent compared to the Original Equipment exhaust system. The system is offered in durable Satin Black or Stainless finishes. Designed by Harley-Davidson engineers as part of a Screamin’ Eagle system, header length is properly tuned, back pressure is ideal, and restriction is minimized.

  • Replaces the stock head pipe and mufflers with large-diameter, free-flowing head pipes and matching muffler.
  • Mandrel-bent and TIG welded stainless steel headers are meticulously assembled with race shop precision for perfect fitment on the motorcycle.
  • 2-into-1 full exhaust system reduces weight and provides serious performance look.
  • Pre-tapped for stock or wide-band O2 sensors for easy, emissions-compliant installation.
  • Use the Screamin’ Eagle® Street Performance Tuner to tune ECM specifically to match performance upgrades.
  • Fits 2018-later Softail® models (except FXDR 114, Fat Boy®/114 and Breakout®/114). Compliant 49-State, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Also fits 2018-20 Softail models sold in Mexico.

 

Screamin’ Eagle® Softail® Model Milwaukee-Eight® Engine Stage III Kits

2021 Harley-Davidson Low Rider S Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

MILWAUKEE-EIGHT® 114 ENGINE
Loads of torque for blasting off from stoplights, hitting entrance ramps, and rolling on the passing power. Pure sound with a soul-satisfying rumble.

SOFTAIL® FRAME
The frame retains the classic Softail® lines, but its lightweight design and stiffness translate to a responsive ride unlike anything you’ve felt before.

REDUCED RAKE
The Low Rider® S model frame rake is reduced to 28 degrees from the 30 degree rake of the standard Low Rider® model, resulting in more responsive handling.

INVERTED FRONT FORK
Inverted design stiffens the front end for improved response to steering input, and the single-cartridge internal technology responds quickly to inputs and keeps the front wheel planted for improved braking and handling performance.

MONO-SHOCK REAR SUSPENSION
Easily adjustable mono-shock rear suspension allows for dynamic cornering capability, quicker acceleration, and braking while preserving the hardtail look.

RAW DARK LOOK
Blacked-out finishes, moto-style bars with 4-inch risers, and mini speed screen let everyone know that this machine wasn’t built for those who want to take the conventional route.

RAISED CONTROLS
The defining element of the tall-bike style. The 1-inch diameter motocross-style handlebar is mounted on 4-inch risers to put you in an aggressive riding position.

CAST-ALUMINUM WHEELS
Radiate Cast-Aluminum Wheels are finished in a matte dark bronze to complete its raw dark look.

DUAL FRONT DISC BRAKES
Stronger braking performance with less lever effort than the single front disc brake on the standard Low Rider® model, and standard ABS (anti-lock braking system) for confident braking performance when conditions are less than ideal.

One look at the Low Rider S is all it takes to see how far the Softail family has come. It’s the latest in a new revolution of custom motorcycles we launched in 2018. With every Softail, you get a lighter frame, responsive new suspension, and the power of the Milwaukee-Eight v-twin engine. In keeping with the custom tradition, each model has its own attitude and style. Ranging from the blacked-out nostalgia of the Heritage Classic to the futuristic edge of the Fat Bob models. Find the one that fits your style. You’re in for one hell of a ride.
