The new Low Rider S, like the last iteration, takes inspiration from West Coast customs, specifically stunters and outlaw motorcycle clubs, but for obvious reasons, H-D just calls it “coastal custom influence.” Tall T-bars, a small fairing over the headlight, and a steep-backed seat are the main components to this look, all of which hold functional value as well. The tall bars and mid-mounted foot controls keep the rider in an aggressive (for a Harley) position, planted in the seat but over the footpegs, making it easy to shift the body for more precise handling when needed. The tall-backed seat helps lock the rider in, feeling more secure during fast takeoffs and ready for wheelies and burnouts, should the rider so desire. And the small fairing does a surprising amount to deflect wind away from the body, though it does leave the head and helmet exposed to buffeting. Paired with the Le Mans-inspired wheel color and blacked-out finishes throughout, the Low Rider S blends classic H-D style with modern aggression very well, still holding a classic silhouette and looking very Harley, but modern and performance-driven at the same time. Those who had qualms with the plastic tail of the FXDR or the headlight shape on the Fat Bob will undoubtedly favor the more traditional lines of the Low Rider S.
