2017 Harley-Davidson Low Rider®

/
A favorite of asphalt addicts, traditionalists and anyone else who gets a load of its eye-popping custom style.

It’s powerful just leaning on its side stand.

The muscular Low Rider® is a long-time favorite of those who want to ride hard. Mid-mount controls, adjustable seat and handlebars. Dual disc front brakes and optional laced wheels. Keyless ignition. And powered by the High Output Twin Cam™ 103 engine that feeds into a two-into-one exhaust. It’s an icon built so more riders can put on more miles.

Authentic Styling

  • PREMIUM CUSTOM STYLE: From wheel to wheel, the Low Rider® model is a low riding feast for the eyes, loaded with high-end finishes as it holds true to the heritage of all the Low Rider® motorcycles that have rolled down the streets of the world before it. From the '70s inspired seat to the chunky mag wheels to the true, sculpted beauty and finish on its 103 cubic inch V-Twin engine, this is premium Harley-Davidson custom style to the bone. So even though you’re riding low, you’re doing it in high style.
  • PURE HARLEY-DAVIDSON STYLING: Feast your eyes on the High Output Twin Cam 103™ Engine and there's no mistaking its roots. This is authentic Harley-Davidson style through and through with an attention to detail you won't find from any other motorcycle company. Black powder-coated heads and cylinders are highlighted by machined cooling fin tips and chrome rocker covers. It's a jewel machined out of metal. Pure. Dripping with power. From the classic edge of the cooling fins to the clean lines of cases and covers—the Twin Cam 103™ Engine makes an ironclad statement about holding on to what's right and staying true to what satisfies.
  • TRUE CUSTOM DETAILS: Here’s what your eyes discover on a journey over the Low Rider® motorcycle: A polished front end, wrinkle black and chrome powertrain, chrome-plated fender strut covers that give a nod to the past and feature wrinkle black cutouts that match the Low Rider® badging on the battery box cover. The headlight is capped off with a classically styled eyebrow that serves double duty as both the headlight and handlebar riser mount. Even the seat cover gets the custom treatment. It’s a perforated material that highlights the performance prowess at the heart of this great motorcycle.
  • TWO-TONE PAINT (OPTIONAL): The Low Rider® model comes standard in deep, rich Vivid Black Harley-Davidson® paint.But you have the option to highlight its low profile with optional Billet Silver and Vivid Black two-tone paint.
  • WRINKLE BLACK CONSOLE WITH SPEEDO AND TACH: There’s a wrinkle black console with a speedo and tach mounted on the Low Rider® motorcycle’s classic Fat Bob® tank. The look ties in with the wrinkle black paint on the powertrain and fender strut covers. And gives a nice, subtle contrast to the Vivid Black paint on the tank. Because there’s no such thing as too many shades of black.
  • CHUNKY MAG WHEELS: The Low Rider® motorcycle rolls straight out of hot rod street culture on chunky mag wheels. The look is true, pure American muscle. There’s no substitute for it anywhere in the world.
  • 2 INTO 1 EXHAUST: A 2-into-1 exhaust that flows like liquid chrome adds some eye-popping custom style to the Low Rider® model. You'll also like what it does for your ears. It's tuned for a deep, rich rumble that no rider can ever get enough of.

Comfort

  • RELOCATED MID-MOUNT CONTROLS: The Low Rider® model gives you the confidence-inspiring riding position that comes from mid-mount foot controls. Your feet are right where you want them to be, with an easy reach to the ground when it’s time to stop. Your knees ride naturally next to the tank for a good center of gravity and balance in the corners. And the controls have been positioned to give you easy access to the jiffy stand so there’s no fishing around with your foot when it’s time to dismount.
  • PERFECT FIT ERGONOMICS: Whether you’re 5’1” or 6’1”, thanks to perfect fit ergonomics, you can dial the Low Rider® motorcycle in to fit you like a motorcycle glove. We developed perfect fit through an innovative look at how riders fit on a motorcycle using both simulation and actual rider studies. The result is a unique handlebar riser that provides 2.4” of movement fore and aft and an innovative, yet simple, seat design, which allows you to select from two riding positions that offer an additional 1.5” of adjustment fore and aft. This is pure Harley-Davidson steel tailored to your body.

Iconic Engine

  • HIGH OUTPUT TWIN CAM 103™ENGINE INNOVATION: Fire up the High Output Twin Cam 103™ Engine and feel the low-end torque unleashed. Thanks to the lightweight piston design, delivery of the added power is more refined than ever. Then put your foot on the shifter and feel how the engine and 6-Speed Cruise Drive® Transmission were designed to work together. Six speeds. A strong driveline and strong internal parts. Low routine maintenance. And a low cruising rpm couldn't feel better.
  • HIGH OUTPUT TWIN CAM 103™ENGINE: The knowledge of what makes an engine truly move a rider runs deep at The Motor Company, and it was put to good use when we created the Twin Cam 103™ Engine. We sweated bullets perfecting every cubic inch, pushing design and technology forward. And we did it all without compromising one bit of Harley-Davidson's unique styling. Evolved, yet carrying on the legacy of the Flathead, Knucklehead, Panhead, Shovelhead, Evolution® and Twin Cam 88® and Twin Cam 96® engines that came before. The performance and durability are a direct result of the untold miles logged on the V-Twin since 1909 and the proud heritage that comes from a century's worth of commitment to life on two wheels.
  • HIGH OUTPUT TWIN CAM 103™ENGINE POWER: The air cooled High Output Twin Cam 103™ Engine delivers more stump-pulling torque, while its Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection jetting gives crisp, lively throttle reaction. It’s a performance punch that you’ll appreciate when passing, climbing hills, or rolling with luggage packed or a passenger in back—all under that signature Motor Company rumble. And it comes at lower cruising rpm, so you ride more smoothly, with less engine vibration and better highway fuel economy.
  • 6-SPEED CRUISE DRIVE®TRANSMISSION: You want a ride that rumbles—not begs for mercy—when you lean on it a little. The 6-Speed Cruise Drive® Transmission provides smooth, quiet shifting and reduces engine speed on the highway, so you get a better match between engine turnover and road speed. It's a rare ride when a bike responds like this, and a low growl goes a long way when you're opening up the road ahead.
