New Harleys lower, meaner ever

By: IOL Motoring Staff

Wisconsin — Hard on the of the Project Rushmore tourers and the 750, Harley-Davidson has announced more new derivatives to complete the model launch in the 110-year of the Motor Company — the new Low SuperLow 1200T and Street Bob Edition.

In 1977 Willie G created a ride-it-hard, put-it-away-dirty, cruiser — the Low Rider. both as a no-nonsense Big Twin for riders and as a blank canvas for customisers, it almost single-handedly rise to what is now an 800-page of aftermarket parts and accessories to your Harley unique.

Now that non-conformist nameplate is on a new cruiser with old-school over right-now mechanicals starting with a 1690cc Cam engine making 126Nm at and all the right noises through a two-into-one exhaust, modulated by suspension and dual front brakes.

A polished headlight and wrinkle-black trim echo the Low Rider, while an adjustable and handlebar risers make rides more fun no matter shape you’re in.

And somehow appropriate that the Low Rider in the monumental Harley-Davidson parts and catalogue is one of the biggest.


They say are two kinds of Harley owners Sportster guys and Big Twin Elvis Presley, for what worth, was a Sportster rider; Schwartzenegger owns a number of Big

The 1200T is the Harley tourer for guys, combining the quicker and shorter wheelbase of the Sporty’s lighter chassis, with the to take you to the next town or the next time zone.

A screen, locking saddlebags and Scorcher touring tyres are equipment, as are mounting points for accessory racks and backrests.

The seat, handlebars and footpegs been redesigned for long-range rather than looking with low, pull-back and mid-mounted footpegs so broad and rubber-padded they almost as foot-boards.

A 1203cc Evolution rated for 96Nm at 3750rpm motorvation for a Long Ranger more than 50kg than the lightest model in the Company’s Touring range.


‘Bob’ in case has nothing to do with (E Lee or any other); it’s short for a term originally applied to a with its mane and tail cut (cut short) for working in heavy brush, and latterly to a military-spec Harley-Davidson stripped of everything that did not contribute to motion.

The new Street Bob Special Edition is utter rarity, a Harley-Davidson is not available in the United States.

by the factory customisation programme, been put together using the that the parts and accessories has to offer, pared down to the minimalist look that was by American GI’s returning the Second World War who found it to settle down.

Today call it post-traumatic stress they just stripped old bikes to the bare essentials and the kinks out of their souls.

The Street Bob Special retains all the key features of the stripped-back Big Twin the chopped rear mudguard, Fat Bob tank, and black-finished 126Nm, engine and gearbox.

Forward and a flat drag-style handlebar the bike’s profile, a two-up seat replaces the standard seat, and the bike rolls on split five-spoked cast finished in black with cut highlights.
