Legendary motorcycle brand confirms return of the Low Rider,
Tour-ready SuperLow 1200T and factory custom Street Bob Special -
Sydney, March 2014: Fresh off the back of unveiling the new Harley-Davidson® Street™ 500 and recent Project RUSHMORE-inspired Touring models, legendary motorcycle brand Harley-Davidson has announced three more motorcycles to expand its2014 line-up.
The mid-year release of the retro-cool Harley-Davidson Low Rider® and versatile SuperLow® 1200T, as well as a custom model Street Bob® Special, completes the largest new model launch in Harley-Davidson’s 110-year history.
“Our Model Year 14.5 announcement keeps the throttle pinned on the company’s accelerated, customer-led, product-development process to highlight what a fantastic six months it has been for us,” commented Adam Wright, Director of Marketing for Harley-Davidson Australia. “The Low Rider, SuperLow 1200T and new Street Bob Special –are a further result of being customer led and delivering the attitude and features riders want.”
Harley-Davidson Low Rider
In 1977, Harley-Davidson created the Low Rider - a ride-it-hard, put-it-away dirty custom motorcycle that became an icon. The legendary Low Rider model name is reprised in 2014 for an all-new cruiser that rolls with old-school class but features exciting new performance. A polished headlamp visor, wrinkle black trim, and split five-spoke aluminium wheels are touchstone styling elements from the original Low Rider model.
Also featuring the brand’s Twin Cam 103™ powertrain, header pipes that feed a 2-into-1 exhaust and dual-front disc brakes - along with suspension that is calibrated for all day comfort and precise handling - the Harley-Davidson Low Rider enters the 2014 lineup with typical Harley-Davidson performance.
Additionally, a new adjustable seat and handlebar risers enable a perfect fit, with ample Genuine Motor Parts & Accessories® available to offer endless customisation possibilities.
Harley-Davidson SuperLow 1200T
The Harley-Davidson SuperLow 1200T combines a nimble chassis with essential touring features including a detachable windshield, locking saddlebags and Dunlop® Harley-Davidson Blackwall tyres as standard. Docking points accommodate detachable accessory racks and backrests for ease of customisation.
New seat and control ergonomics are shaped specifically to give more riders long-distance comfort, whilst power is delivered from the Motor Company’s 1200cc Evolution® V-Twin engine.
The Harley-Davidson SuperLow 1200T weighs-in at almost 53.5kg less than the lightest Harley-Davidson Big Twintouring motorcycles.
A premium finish comes from aluminium wheels, two-tone paint scheme options and chrome throughout.
Harley-Davidson Street Bob Special
The Harley-Davidson Street Bob Special is a custom model that upholds a stripped-down Big Twin presence and features forward controls and drag handlebars which replace the stock mini-ape hanger bars.
Also boasting a raft of other new eye-catching make-up for 2014, the Street Bob Special features a chopped rear fender, Fat Bob fuel tank and split 5-spoke cast aluminium wheels – as well as unique two-tone paint with graphics. Badlander® two-up saddle, forward controls and drag handlebars to complete the bobber look. Power is delivered from Harley-Davidson’s 103 engine block.
Inspired by Harley-Davidson’s Factory Customization program in the US, the Harley-Davidson Street Bob Special is only available in select markets, including those in the Asia Pacific, European, Middle East and African regions.
The Harley-Davidson Low Rider, SuperLow 1200T and Street Bob Special models will be available at Authorised Harley-Davidson dealerships across Australia and New Zealand from April 2014.
