Breaking News. Harley-Davidson Unveils 2 More New Models To The Harley-Davidson 2014 Line-Up. The SuperLow 1200T and the Low Rider.

Low-RiderFresh off the unveiling of the new Harley-Davidson Street™ 750 and the launch of Project RUSHMORE, the company unleashed today two new motorcycles that expand its diverse line-up of street bikes, and put more models for more riders on the showroom floor of each Harley-Davidson dealer. The mid-year release of the retro-cool Low Rider® and rangy SuperLow® 1200T completes the largest new-model launch in Harley-Davidson’s 110-year history.

SuperLow-1200T“It’s been a fantastic six months for us,” said Matt Levatich, Harley-Davidson Motor Company President and Chief Operating Officer. “First Project RUSHMORE, then Harley-Davidson Street, now the new SuperLow 1200T and Low Rider models — all are the result of being customer led and delivering riders the technical prowess and rebellious spirit that they want infused in each and every new Harley.”

The Return Of The Rebellious Dyna Low Rider (top picture)
In 1977, Harley-Davidson created a ride-it-hard, put-it-away dirty, make-your-own-boundaries custom motorcycle that became an icon – the Low Rider. Today that defiant attitude returns with a vengeance as the legendary Low Rider model name is reprised for an all-new cruiser that rolls with old-school class and exciting new performance. A polished headlamp visor, wrinkle black trim, and split five-spoke aluminum wheels are touchstone styling elements from the original Low Rider model.

The unrelenting thrust of the Twin Cam 103™ powertrain signals departure with a satisfying, throaty tone through twisting header pipes feeding a 2-into-1 exhaust. Suspension is calibrated for all-day comfort and precise handling, while dual-front disc brakes deliver capable stopping power. The new adjustable seat and handlebar risers enable a perfect fit for more riders. Ample Genuine Motor Accessories offer endless possibilities for self-expression, so any rider can own the look and own the road.

Tour-Ready Sportster SuperLow 1200T (bottom picture)
Harley-Davidson opens the door to touring adventure with the SuperLow 1200T, a motorcycle that combines a nimble chassis with essential touring features and the power to ride to the horizon. A detachable windshield, locking saddlebags and Michelin® Scorcher™ 11T touring tires are standard equipment. Docking points accommodate detachable accessory racks and backrests for ease of customization.

A new seat and control ergonomics are shaped specifically to give more riders long-distance comfort. The SuperLow 1200T can run with the pack thanks to the power of a 1200cc Evolution® V-Twin engine, and it weighs 118 pounds less than the lightest Harley-Davidson Big Twin touring motorcycle. The finish is premium Harley-Davidson with aluminum wheels, an available two-tone paint scheme and plenty of brilliant chrome.

To swing a leg over a new Harley-Davidson motorcycle visit h-d.com to find a local dealer. The Low Rider and SuperLow 1200T models start arriving today in dealerships across the country, and are available to demo during Daytona Bike Week at the Harley-Davidson display at the Speedway.

    Good move by HD, dynas and sportsters are more popular now than ever.

  2. 2 Mr Dick Mar 6th, 2014 at 5:27 pm

    Nice. There hasn’t been a normal looking 1200 since the 1200 Low.

  3. 3 tundra Mar 6th, 2014 at 5:35 pm

    So the Low Rider wasn’t in the lineup in August? I guess I didn’t notice…

    I must say the Silver/Black is right on.

  4. 4 Blackmax Mar 6th, 2014 at 5:45 pm

    Continuing the nice effort by the Motor Co. to get those entry level buyers in the door
    Will want to see how the sales numbers roll out

  5. 5 Dude Mar 6th, 2014 at 5:50 pm

    It’s a Dyna Daytona with different paint. Somebody get 1994 on the phone, they want their bike back.

  6. 6 Zen Mar 6th, 2014 at 5:57 pm

    Add bags and windshield and mags and poof! A “new” bike. The Sportster 1200 T Low.

    Take a Low Rider that was still being sold in the Japan market until the 2014 model year and delete some chrome and call it “new” for a 2014 early mid year American release.

    sigh. I guess you have to have something for Daytona.

    Do me a favor Harley Davidson, bring back the 2007 Wide glide WITH THE CHROME and I will buy it. Also, if you make some parts in America, I’ll even pay the premium and buy those too.

  7. 7 Doc Robinson Mar 6th, 2014 at 6:17 pm

    Well, we got not two, but three, new models released here in Australia – the Low Rider,
    the Tour-ready SuperLow 1200T and a factory custom Street Bob Special.

  8. 8 Terence Tory Mar 6th, 2014 at 6:50 pm

    The Low Rider Dyna is like a FXR with a hinge in the middle and rear wheel steering like a Mazda.Fast riding fail.

    Sportsters trying to look like a lo-fat Big Twin Low Rider does not really work.

    I can’t work out why H-D is fitting mag wheels to so many of their models that look like Japanese or cheap Chinese designs.

  9. 9 Rodent Mar 6th, 2014 at 7:12 pm

    This is almost as exciting as the rumor of a upcoming iPhone 6,

  10. 10 Brandon Mar 6th, 2014 at 7:14 pm

    To guess what will be the iPhone 6 next features is exciting. Another comment for nothing by Rodent.

  11. 11 James just another crazy Kiwi Mar 6th, 2014 at 7:38 pm

    Well Cause I’m almost cynical , I could say that they bought the Low Rider back for all the people that find the 014 Fat Bob too bilious to be seen on.
    But the styling Dept think they have made an astounding leap forward by putting Nissan sky line tail lights on a Harley.So that will not be the case.

    The silver and black was 78 and a half I think, the 77 was a really cool smokey grey silver colour and the outer engine and primary cases were painted to match.Nice flat drag bars on risers it looked brilliant. Bring that one back and sell plenty styling Dept !!!

    ”TT” I bought a new 89 FXR low rider and I have ridden other FXR’s including Shovel powered ones and the late model Dyna’s easily handle and stop better even though they are allot heavier.
    The front ends flexed, the brakes were non existent and the rubber mounts used to wear pretty quickly on the early FXR’s. They certainly were good in their day but my FB is way superior.
    And by the way the Low Riders always had mags

    Good night

  12. 12 Sheridan Mar 6th, 2014 at 7:40 pm

    Have to admit I quite like the Dyna Lowrider in the black. Add some raised white letter tyres on that and it would be the late 80’s all over again.

  13. 13 Stephen Mar 6th, 2014 at 8:28 pm

    Same old same old. Nothing to see here folks, move on.

  14. 14 BCinSoCal Mar 6th, 2014 at 9:43 pm

    Want a news flash for youth and those over 30, want the best all around rider that the Motor Company ever produced? Go out and find a nice late FXR , hard to do now, but if you are a bagger rider it will not work for you, if you need your GPS, and extra loud stereo and color TV, it works only if you are a bike rider! had a late model Dyna, sold it when I got lucky and found a cherry low miles FXR, still the best if you like riding motor cycles. If you need all that other crap stay home or drive a car!

  15. 15 Rodent Mar 6th, 2014 at 9:55 pm

    BCinSoCal
    Besides myself, you’re the only comment that on the money.

  16. 16 Terence Tory Mar 6th, 2014 at 10:35 pm

    James just another crazy Kiwi,The FXR chassis is far superior in drivetrain strength and frame rigidity to the Dyna.Even afterthoughts to cope with primary case flex like a Carlini Designs Dyna motor case Torque Arm don’t really fix the problem.The FXR was the last good handling,high speed Big Twin,that H-D ever made.

    I would rather ride a rubber mount bagger than either of these two bikes.They have too much compromised engineering IMHO.

    My comments on late model H-D mag wheels relates to how ugly and cheap some of them look.

  17. 17 Seymour Mar 6th, 2014 at 10:41 pm

    Oooooo the thrust! It’s unrelenting! Gag.

  18. 18 James just another crazy Kiwi Mar 7th, 2014 at 1:57 am

    T T I Think they did some limited editions ones in 99, I have not ridden one of those but I’ve ridden a few.
    I doubt you talk from experience other than the experience you glean on-line.
    The front ends and brakes were not good as were the early Dynas pretty bad for frame strength and rigidity..
    Either your smoking something really good or your a big puff of smoke backed up by Nigel Google Smith.

    You Choose…nuff said

  19. 19 BIG DOUG Mar 7th, 2014 at 2:37 am

    I just rode the lowrider and streetbob limited today,and not being a fan off the fatbob these bikes would suit me more as I’ve not liked the tyre or front wheel of the fatbob,really liked the lowrider but ironically I would put some longer and better shocks on the rear and a thunderheader and we would be good to go.The weird looking thing with the lowrider is the multi position handlebar risers but when riding it they are no probs just look a little strange.

  20. 20 john reed Mar 7th, 2014 at 3:29 am

    I think that there is something wrong with terence tory or whatever his real name is.
    I dismiss a lot of his stuff because I am sure he writes it to get a reaction by winding people up,but
    I hate to admit it I agree with some (not a lot) of the stuff he says.
    If you want a stock big twin that goes round bends,a correct set up Fxr framed one is the best one to use and it is even better if its upgraded to more modern specifications.

  21. 21 James just another crazy Kiwi Mar 7th, 2014 at 3:51 am

    1990 Sock FXR verses stock 2008 Fat Bob Dyna no competition !

    Ridden them both from new, for allot of miles.

    BUT there is a pull towards the FXR which is strong for a number of reasons.
    Respect to Mr Buell is one and a number strength and rigitly and some other not completely logical reasons, but if logic was King we would all be screwed…………..

    Plus cool factor…….

    Not for TT’s reasons…..

    Been along year already

  22. 22 Sportster Mike Mar 7th, 2014 at 5:46 am

    Hot Bike this month has an FXR framed custom (aftermarket frame though I think) built because the guy had spoken to the ‘old guys at the factory’ and Eric Buell – and they all said FXR framed bikes best thing since sliced bread…

    I must admit that I haven’t seen a good FXR here in England for a while – and last one I saw was a shovelhead engined one – which the owner said was the best of both worlds, old style engine poke and good handling…

    Has got me looking….I must admit

    @John Reed – didn’t you build a FXR style bike with inverted forks a while back??

  23. 23 Mdkuder Mar 7th, 2014 at 7:20 am

    I always liked the Low Glide how about bringing the SG tank back! Oh and the closest they ever got to a radical custom (seen to describe HD’s bikes) was the rocker. Looks like it’s more blah blah blah………….

  24. 24 Smittydog Mar 7th, 2014 at 7:22 am

    Love those Dynas

  25. 25 Steve Berg Mar 7th, 2014 at 7:30 am

    Without the.I’d controls it isn’t a low rider.

  26. 26 Doug Wozney Mar 7th, 2014 at 9:36 am

    As a current owner of an FXR – albeit an X-Wedge’d FXR, I am a huge fan of that platform, however I’ve had conversations with many of my FatBob 1/4 Fairing/Dyna chin spoiler customers who have previously owned/ridden FXR’s and every single one of them has to ‘admit’ the FatBob is on-par in the handling dept. with the FXR. That being said, I think there is plenty of room in the market for both platforms and the Motor Company would do itself a real favor to explore bringing the FXR back. I can’t imagine how many they’d sell if it was made available right off the crate with a 120R powerplant…

  27. 27 Mike Greenwald Mar 7th, 2014 at 10:17 am

    There was a very limited amount of time that the FXR was really at its best. I think that only lasted for the first model year and into the second before the frame was changed.

  28. 28 Sharkey Mar 7th, 2014 at 10:38 am

    Well, I’ve just gone from modified FXDXT (goggle image – the blue one) to FXDF and I’m happy with the handling…would not be happy with an antique motor when touring (EVO) but admit the FXR’s have a following…the “new” FXDL brings refreshed styling and another Dyna with twin discs up front.

  29. 29 A 1 MIKE Mar 7th, 2014 at 10:39 am

    MY FXR HAS MODERN UPSIDE DOWN FORKS, 17 INCH WHEELS AND 320 MM DOUBLE DISC BREMBO BRAKES, A 121 TP EVO MOTOR, FAIRING AND BAGS AND REVO SHOCKS FROM JESSE JURRENS (LEGEND SUSPENSION) A BASSANI PIPE….TOURING FAIRING AND HARD BAGS…I DARE ANY DYNA RIDER TO OUT WHEELIE, CORNER, BRAKE ME..FXR IS THE BEST PLATFORM EVER PRODUCED BY THE MO CO, A FEW LITTLE MODS AND IT IS THE BEST HARLEY MADE…I HAVE RIDDEN AND REPAIRED THEM ALL 18 YEARS IN BUSINESS…I KNOW THIS POST IS ABOUT THE NEW BIKES,,BUT I HAVE TO DEFEND THE FXR NATION!!!!

  30. 30 Mr Dick Mar 7th, 2014 at 10:52 am

    I like riding my wife’s 1200L, but it’s too small for me, I get cramped up in the hips. This Dyna is next on my hit list with it’s nice stance and hot rod look.

  31. 31 SIGFREED Mar 7th, 2014 at 11:43 am

    “Rebellious”, “defiant attitude”, he, he, he, with extra seat padding…

    Must say, the Dyna should pull nicely with the 103ci engine and (presumably) light weight aluminium wheels/rims.

    BTW – I am a huge fan of the 103ci (have one in a Softail FB and a Dyna WG). IMHO the 110 serves touring models best. The 103 is just a touch quicker to answer to the throttle and the Stage 3 kit on the WG is GROOOVY!

    BUT – I am 100% with those who call upon the “gods” to return to the FXR. Soon I will “upgrade” the WG to a FXR chassis/frame. We have done two Dyna’s already – ie everything remains essentially HD, with nearly all contemporary HD Dyna parts transferred to a replica FXR frame (in both cases geometry remained as is – but very simple to throw in geometry changes if a new frame is being done). There are few words to describe the difference – viz modern electrics/motor/drive, classic FXR handling. If God rode the original FXR, then the Holy Ghost leads the threesome on a late model Dyna in a FXR frame.

    We are considering such a package as a full-scale commercial “upgrade” and/or new ‘SPECIAL’ (eg as the Laverda JOTA was back in the day). The cost/price is a consideration and I am careful of a loss initially (eg not sure it worth more than a 30% premium on a “new” bike and that is very tight with a decent margin). Apart from just having too much on our plate at the moment.

  32. 32 James Simonelli Mar 7th, 2014 at 12:25 pm

    I’m with Doug Wozney on this one. Factory re-release of the FXR with 120 R power? WINNER! I doubt we will ever see it though. The FXR chassis was complex and expensive to produce and the 120R is not EPA certified.

  33. 33 lenny Mar 7th, 2014 at 12:31 pm

    It’s a shame that HD can’t make some bikes capable of being used by novice riders wanting to pass their Direct Access test in the UK. Non of the current models have enough BHP to qualify as a bike suitable for test.

  34. 34 Cris Sommer Simmons Mar 7th, 2014 at 2:16 pm

    I agree with Doug too… many people are still loving the FXR. Bring that back and you will have a whole group of people cheering.
    Congrats to HD for bringing more people into our sport by introducing more models for people to choose from. The more the merrier!

  35. 35 Highrider Mar 7th, 2014 at 7:42 pm

    My FXLR is one of the finest looking bike I own, I wish HD would duplicate it with a `103 and a 21″ front wheel ( laced) and a little longer frame than the FXR and Dyna with a 200 mm solid rear wheel and they would have s real head turner

  36. 36 baert43 Mar 7th, 2014 at 8:50 pm

    Is it just me or are others completely turned off by hd’s sales ‘pitchs’, run with pack etc. all super tuff over the top language…ity’s fxxking embarrassing…..r

  37. 37 BIG DOUG Mar 8th, 2014 at 5:51 am

    I think a new fxr would good BUT with new front engine mounts like the touring bikes,I too owned an fxr many moons ago have any off you ever had the fxr wobble at speed,can scare the crap out of you.I also have a friend who is building an fxr with an s+s 124 twincam mtr,ohlins fr end,alloy swingarm,bst carbon fibre wheels,brembo monobloc calipers it will handle and be quick and stop.

  38. 38 Matt Olsen Mar 8th, 2014 at 4:22 pm

    This is a great looking bike. Good job Harley

  39. 39 Zipper Mar 9th, 2014 at 8:05 am

    What about the FXDX advertised as best handling bike HD ever made? ..Z

  40. 40 Jeff Mar 9th, 2014 at 7:13 pm

    What another off the parts shelf special. Absolutely no creativity by HD same old boring stuff. When they do have something new they dont advertise it and wonder why there sales are low then delete the model. XR1200 for one, best HD they EVER built. A Sporster well maybe, not your wifes/ GF bike thats for sure. If your a chrome guy this would not be the bike. However if you fall into the category when you turn your bike on does it repay the favor? Then this is it. Of the 3 HD’s I do own chromed out 07 RK, 73 ole skool chop and the XR I ride the fast orange one the most. Make me feel like a young man again. As far as the crap they are building 750 cc, bikes like the 48, 72 etc etc they have no clue. Build a 90 Cubic Inch sportbike with a reasonable amount of HP (125) and gobs of TQ and make it weigh 400 lbs count me in

  41. 41 BCinSoCal Mar 9th, 2014 at 7:57 pm

    John Reed, I started riding FXRs while still in Oregon, first was a Shovel head , hot s**t a 5 speed and rubber mount engine and drive train! then ordered a brand new from the factory FXRP $6750! After build customs bikes for 40 years, still ride an FXR. Best all around rider factory ever built! Just one mans opinion……

  42. 42 Rider May 4th, 2014 at 1:56 pm

    Digging on the Lowrider. The first bike I ever fell in love with was a silver and black 1979 Lowrider an Angel that lived up the block rode. I won’t sell my FXR, but I would add a new FXDL.
