|How close do you want to get to the pavement? This is about falling in love with the ride. It doesn’t matter if it’s your first time, or if you’re a veteran of countless miles on the pavement. When you throw a leg over the SuperLow® model, every feeling you get will be a good one. From the new saddle and new suspension to the low center of gravity and light, easy-handling frame, this machine is built to make any rider one with the road. Does it get any better than that?|
|Premium Styling Features: The value and quality of the confidence-inspiring SuperLow model is unparalleled in its class. With a true Harley-Davidson® rumble, steel parts, premium paint and flawless chrome, this model reveals its authentic American motorcycle roots in every inch of detail.|
|Teardrop Fuel Tank: The 4.5-gallon teardrop fuel tank offers spacious fuel capacity for a low-profile tank. It's tough, iconic and it leaves a good amount of room to show off more V-twin. The tank graphic showcases the unique styling of the SuperLow motorcycle; as if the tank came right off the calligraphers brush.|
|Evolution® Engine Innovation: Air-cooled and durable as hell, the 883 cc Evolution engine is yet another nod to the unwavering work ethic that drives advancements in motor technology at Harley-Davidson. Aluminum heads and cylinders lighten the load of the bike and improve air-cooling efficiency. Electronic fuel injection says goodbye to carburetors and boasts increased reliability and less routine maintenance. Bottom line: the rubber-mounted Evolution engine runs hard and rides smooth for thousands of miles so you can just worry about taking in the freedom of the open road.|
|Evolution Engine: The Evolution engine – known in certain crowds as the Blockhead – was first bolted to the frame of a Harley-Davidson motorcycle back in 1984. Born from legendary Shovelhead and Ironhead engines, the Evolution engine broke new ground in displacement innovation while maintaining the hunger for power, durability and proven reliability that The Motor Company was built on.|
|Pure Harley-Davidson Styling: Feast your eyes on the 883 cc Evolution 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. Silver powder-coated cylinders and cylinder heads are topped off with polished rocker covers to complete the premium Harley-Davidson look. Unmatched style and performance down to the very last detail. 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 883 cc Evolution engine makes an ironclad statement about holding on to what's right and staying true to what satisfies the rider.|
|Ergonomic Hand Controls: If your hands feel good on the controls you'll feel good on the bike. Which is why when you twist the throttle of a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, you just know. You feel more dialed in, comfortable and attuned to the road and everything around you. In designing these hand controls we went the extra mile to make sure every operation is as intuitive, fluid and effortless as possible. So you can keep your eyes on what's over the next ridge and not what's under your thumb. Things like self-canceling turn signals that are right where you want them to be and brake levers that are easy for all riders to reach. We've added other features, too, like a trip switch and vehicle "start" switch as all Sportster models are keyless. Details that may seem small but make a huge difference on the road. Because it's tiny things like these that make a Harley-Davidson motorcycle a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.|
|Foundation Brake System: Like riding itself, you can never go too far when it comes to improving a bike's brakes. This is why we gave the brake system of each Sportster® model a complete overhaul designed to improve performance, fit and finish. We increased the size of the brake rotors from 292 mm to 300 mm and added a more powerful, stylized front caliper with 34 mm pistons and stylized rear caliper to match. Other system features include an improved all-aluminum integrated rear master cylinder with reservoir, all-aluminum front master cylinder with reduced friction and higher efficiency, and stainless steel braided lines. It all adds up to more confidence on the road and more power and predictability when you squeeze the brakes.|
|Integrated Electrical System: Coursing through every Sportster model is a body controller with updated routing. It has a cleaner look and reduces the number of wiring harnesses, switches, relays and fuses. Which is a fancy way of saying less fuss. We've also added a voltage regulator with modified fins and integrated connectors to improve heat rejection. Like you, the Sportster motorcycle's rewired and ready to chase wind and eat up miles of pavement.|
|Closed Loop Exhaust System: Designed to meet future worldwide emissions standards and the standards of future generations of Harley-Davidson motorcycle riders. This closed loop exhaust system delivers heart-pounding performance in the key of the trademark Harley-Davidson rumble. With its robust, soul-stirring big twin design, durable mufflers with exhaust shields, a catalyst and mini heated oxygen sensors that improve emissions and drivability, this system is not only better for the environment, it makes riding better.|
|Tachometer and Gear Indicator Readout: Even though none of us would want to admit it, from time to time, we've all had to kick our shift lever back down to 1 to figure out what gear we were in. The Sportster models get a speedometer with a gear indicator readout and a tachometer that can be activated by your trip switch. Now you've got all the information you need to keep it in the power band at the touch of a finger.|
|Final Drive Ratio: Experience smooth handling at slow speed and easy acceleration off the line with the final drive ratio found on the SuperLow motorcycle. Electronic fuel injection coupled with trouble-free handling help create a confidence-inspiring ride that's perfect for anyone just beginning their journey on two wheels.|
|New Advanced Front End Geometry: We went to work on the geometry to create a lighter feeling, highly maneuverable front end with wider lock-to-lock steering. The result is more rider confidence, especially when operating the bike at lower speeds. Add in the lightweight front forks and triple clamps and an 18-inch front wheel diameter, and you have a smooth ride with easy handling for riders with any level of experience. This is freedom on two wheels.|
|Unique Rear Suspension: A lower, longer travel rear suspension on the SuperLow motorcycle sets you up with additional comfort on the road without sacrificing seat height. This unique suspension helps the SuperLow motorcycle barrel through bumps and other unexpected road conditions with ease.|
|Enhanced Low Speed Maneuverability: With an 18-inch wheel up front and a 17-inch wheel backing it up at the tail end, the light wheels and radial tires on the SuperLow motorcycle make handling a cinch. Cast black split 5-spoke machined rims weigh less and get you through turns and other low-speed maneuvers effortlessly.|
|Comfortable Cockpit: A combination of a low bucket seat, longer travel rear suspension and easy-grip handlebar creates a comfortable riding position for a wide range of riders. Ergonomically sound, this bike helps build confidence in all aspects of your journey – from lifting it off its side stand to handling and turning, and every bump, twisty and stop in between.|
|Low Seat Height: The low, ergonomic seat on the SuperLow model provides the ultimate in handling confidence. The combination of a low, 25.5 inch seat height plus a narrow frame makes it easy to maneuver your ride through turns and down straights at varying speeds. Just toss a leg over and crack the throttle – feel the freedom.|
|Michelin® Scorcher™ Tires: Michelin Scorcher tires provide the superior performance, sensational grip, impressive durability and excellent handling expected on a race-bred bike. The exclusive deep-cut tread design improves grip and water evacuation capability. Grip performance and durability is also enhanced by the tire's rubber compounds, which use the latest generation of Michelin synthetic polymers.|
|Mid-Mounted Controls: Let your boots fall where they may, naturally to the mid-mounted controls and rider foot pegs on the SuperLow model. An easy reach and tight rider triangle is confidence-inspiring for new riders eager to set off on their journey and riders whose legs run slightly shorter than others.|
|Low Seat with New Comfort: The bucket-shaped seat on the SuperLow motorcycle gets added foam without losing the sleek style, thanks to the latest 21st Century materials. Also not lost: the 27.4-inch seat height that makes for an extremely low straddle distance and adds to the confidence you’ll have riding this motorcycle.|
|New Suspension Front and Rear: From the day the first Sportster motorcycle roared out of Milwaukee in 1957, the street has been its home turf. Raw power and looks were only part of the equation. The nimble, confident ride took it from there. So it's only right to give the ride quality of the Sportster family a major upgrade to use the latest technology. Up front, you have a brawny 39 mm fork with cartridge damping to give you a sporting ride without the harshness. In back, we went with an emulsion rear shock with screw adjuster. It not only works overtime to soak up every bump the street throws your way, it also adjusts to fit your riding style. Simply turn the screw and you have a rear suspension set up to ride just the way you like it.|
