Harley-Davidson has revealed three new models for this year - a new Low Rider, SuperLow 1200T and a Street Bob Special Edition, Motorcycle News has reported.
The new models will be a great addition to the Harley-Davidson portfolio, joining the Project Rushmore bikes which were launched in 2013. The Project Rushmore bikes include the Road King, Street Glide and Electra Glide ranges.
The Low Rider bike returns to the brand's range after five years of absence and combines a low seat height of only 68 centimetres with an adjustable seat, foot pegs and handlebars, so that the rider can feel as comfortable as possible. The bike's 1690cc V-twin engine has been revamped as part of the Project Rushmore overhaul, with the company taking into account owners' feedback, rather than simply creating new models.
The SuperLow 1200T is a lighter machine in the touring range, weighing a staggering 53.5kg less than Harley-Davidson's other lightest touring motorbike. The SuperLow was developed specifically for shorter riders between 1.55 m and 1.7 m tall. This way, the foot controls, the ground and the handlebar are all within the biker's reach.
Finally, the Street Bob Special Edition is a custom bike with a 1690cc engine, 5-spoke cast wheels, two-tone paint job with graphics and stripped-down styling. The bike also has forward controls and drag handlebars, which gives the bike a mean look. The Bob has chopped rear mudguards, a blacked-out engine and a Fat Bob fuel tank.
