Harley have been great efforts of late in to bring new customers to their via low slung, easy handling and priced variants of the Sportster

Looking at the spec’ sheet and numbers like 251kg certainly not make any new rider there is anything easy and about the Super Low.

In though the weight of the Super Low is an issue. If there is one thing do really well it is low speed Even top of the line Harleys the wrong side of 400kg are a doddle around town or in the lot.

As fanciful to the uninitiated as it may there are few bikes as amenable in the as a Harley.

One number that will some jumping for joy however is the seat height, one of the lowest in

Unfortunately the ridiculous length of the takes some of this away. You have to just pull a hip flexor to stretch feet out far enough to put your down either side of After catching my leg on them times I resorted to pulling my up before deliberately placing on the road either in front of or the pegs while at traffic

It feels ridiculous and very Perhaps they made the so wide in order to allow to ride side-saddle and have hoofs on the one stirrup.

Of course the other negative effect is that the wide and low slung ride combine to cornering clearance almost The pegs throw sparks when negotiating turns at a pace. Removing the long on the end of the pegs will free up marginally more cornering before the stand will down on left-handers and the pipes on

Radial tyres have one of the most significant advances to mainstream motorcycling a couple of ago. Something that some 25 years later have finally cottoned on to. The new Scorcher rubber and lighter appreciably improve ride and on Harley’s entry level

The riding position is amenable and the generous 17 litre fuel endows the Sportster Low with long-distance potential. Just to smooth highways as the rear offers very little and is susceptible to delivering some whacks in the rump over It’s better than in this regard, but just every other low slung the rear suspension remains and a significant drawback to motorcycle as a whole.

The brakes work well and the 39mm Showa keep the front end in check a more deft level of than the twin-shock rear Unfortunately ABS is not available.

The five-speed gearbox is quite and the clutch pull light. have been reducing the required at the clutch lever in recent years with the aim of more female clientele but the benefit every rider.

The v-twin engine feels than ever on this It is still eminently flexible but a little more urgency in its this time around. At speeds the long … lopes along lazily and an alluring lilt to its v-twin

There is enough urge in to make highway overtaking safe enough.

Overall the Low is quite a nice ride and an choice of motorcycle for a short of rider that rides in the city.

The Sportster Low a great engine, excellent low handling and a comfortable riding Primarily at home in the city its stylish looks can be shown off to effect I am sure that the poor ground clearance and peg placement the Sportster Low will win of fans.
