Harley-Davidson Unveiled The Dyna Low Rider® S and the Harley-Davidson® CVO Pro Street Breakout® motorcycles

Today Wednesday January 27 at the X Games in Aspen, Harley-Davidson unveiled two powerful cruiser additions to its 2016 model-year lineup.

LowRiderSThe new Low Rider S. The raw dark and trimmed to the essentials, is the most powerful non-CVO™ Dyna® cruiser ever offered by Harley-Davidson. The Screamin’ Eagle® Twin Cam 110™ engine, Screamin’ Eagle® Heavy Breather performance intake and Fat Bob-style 2-into-2 exhaust deliver 115 foot pounds of peak torque at 3500 rpm. Premium suspension and brakes complete the performance package. The new limited-edition bike joins the Fat Boy® S and Softail Slim® S models as the third in the new line of S series cruisers for the 2016 Harley-Davidson® lineup. The Low Rider S model joins the recently released Fat Boy® S and Softail Slim® S models as the third member of Harley-Davidson’s S Series cruiser lineup, bikes designed to deliver maximum performance with styling inspired by global custom motorcycle culture. Upgraded suspension and brakes complete the performance package of a motorcycle that’s stripped down and ready for action.

CVOProStreetBreakoutThe new CVO Pro Street Breakout. Conceived to rewrite the factory-custom book with obsessive attention to styling detail, this limited-edition motorcycle has a new, darker look and utilizes cutting-edge finishes and textures. Menacing, muscular and steeped in drag racing attitude, the CVO Pro Street Breakout motorcycle matches the high-intensity performance of the Screaming’ Eagle Twin Cam 110 engine with a look that is pure American street machine. Harley-Davidson CVO motorcycles are customized using premium components and exclusive paint treatments and surface finishes combined with numerous items from Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories. One new finish being introduced on the CVO Pro Street Breakout model is called Smoke Satin Chrome.

    Loose the chopped off rear fenders already

  2. 2 Donnie Jan 27th, 2016 at 3:44 pm

    Looking good, especially the Breakout, but overpriced.

  3. 3 P. Hamilton Jan 27th, 2016 at 3:45 pm

    Yes, but will not attract youngsters. So, what’s next Harley?

  4. 4 Nitschke Jan 27th, 2016 at 3:57 pm

    I love the Low Rider S. I defiantly want one.

  5. 5 Mrs. Behaves Jan 27th, 2016 at 4:50 pm

    Smoked Satin Chrome sounds interesting. Looking forward to seeing this up close.

  6. 6 HDFlattrack Jan 27th, 2016 at 5:22 pm

    The next Harley should be an updated version of the FXR and effectively priced. Considering that a 25 year old frame with an Twin Cam engine and drivetrain is bringing 15k plus it should be a natural.

  7. 7 Sharkey Jan 27th, 2016 at 5:44 pm

    Typically gorgeous Harley styling… No; HD never has advertised itself as a “bargain” brand or “lowest price cruiser on the road”…plenty already fill that niche. Would like to take the Low Rider for a long ride with that torquey motor. I’m not too keen on the “Smoky and the Bandit” paint scheme, but that’s just my senior memories coming back.

  8. 8 Danny Jan 27th, 2016 at 5:56 pm

    Awesome bike! This looks really cool, I would love to get a bike like this someday. Thanks for the post!

  9. 9 domino Jan 27th, 2016 at 5:58 pm

    I have to admit, the Low Rider S is my kind of bike … wouldn’t it be great if it could just have an FXR frame?

    @ Pat h, we used to take FL fenders and run them backwards on the back. I am burned out on that look…

    ……….. Domino Dave ……….

  10. 10 Seymour Jan 27th, 2016 at 6:07 pm

    Nice, reminiscent of early 80’s HD somehow.

  11. 11 Roberto Jan 27th, 2016 at 6:12 pm

    All that is next is a stripped RoadKing S with 14″ apes.

  12. 12 SIGFREED Jan 27th, 2016 at 6:13 pm

    Spot on domino. Make the “S” a premium product with a premium frame; it will take the 110ci motor to the next level and knock the stuffing out of anything Polaris has to offer.

  13. 13 richards Jan 27th, 2016 at 7:03 pm

    I like them all. The price is high but you need to remember, these are CVO’s.

  14. 14 richards Jan 27th, 2016 at 7:07 pm

    I like them all. The price is high but you need to remember, these are CVO’s. They have premium parts and finishes. I like the subtle paint (not a fan of the “loud paint found on the touring bikes).

  15. 15 BobS Jan 27th, 2016 at 7:10 pm

    Props to Harley on a couple fine looking machines. Double props to them for not giving away the title “American Muscle” to Victory. ( And I am a Victory enthusiast / rider ). Note to Victory, I know you have a hot little number coming out 2/19. But, it’s going to take more than one fast bike for you to claim the title of American Muscle brand! Your hand has been ‘called’…let’s see what else you got! What a freaking great time to be a biker!

  16. 16 nicker Jan 27th, 2016 at 7:51 pm

    Personal taste not withstanding, they’re all nice looking scooters….

    -IMHO- anyway


  17. 17 Jim Jan 27th, 2016 at 7:55 pm

    I don’t get the interest in the FXR frame. I know it’s a more stable designed frame, but it is realy ugly. When it came out, everyone HATED the look.. I lived thru those times.. that’s why they designed the dyna frame.. to meet the demand for the classic 4 speed frame. The FXR still lives in the roadking and touring bike frames.. whith the ugly oil tank area hidden. Get one of those, strip it down. But, harley ain’t gonna go back to that, because there wasn’t a mass demand. Yes, they did a couple limited editions back in the 90’s. But very limited. That’s my opinion…rip me apart now☺ Or, let’s hear opinions that match mine. Yes, i know Sonny Barger loved the fxt, it was the best first strpped down cruiser of it’s time i believe.

  18. 18 J Jan 27th, 2016 at 9:08 pm

    The CVO Breakout is sharp- a tad bit of European Harley influence there, nice to see something fresh from The Factory.

  19. 19 Badams Jan 28th, 2016 at 3:25 am

    FXR Fever make its way to HD’s marketing dept. FAIL.
    Race of Gentlemen style prob next and HD Motorcostumes.

    Harley, stop with the focus groups. Be the people’s champion and put out a next gen FXR and nasty little XLCR, This CVO thing its tired, just go balls out.

  20. 20 Badams Jan 28th, 2016 at 3:29 am

    so disco.

  21. 21 Erik Jan 28th, 2016 at 5:47 am

    Sons of Anarchy bikes… Sadly some years late.

  22. 22 Tony Davidson Jan 28th, 2016 at 7:24 am

    Too late Indian motorcycles making Harley MoCo shitting their pant already

  23. 23 mdsphoto Jan 28th, 2016 at 7:46 am

    They look pretty much alike to me.

  24. 24 calif phil Jan 28th, 2016 at 9:02 am

    I would rather have the Dyna regardless of the price difference. Good job Harley.

  25. 25 Woody's Jan 28th, 2016 at 9:44 am

    To me the top photo could be labeled, “wrong” and the one just beneath it, “fixed”. The fairing on the top one looks tacked on and cocked forward and the frame not being level makes it look like the set of $50 fork extension tubes on my old Norton (I thought they looked cool, but others knew better) . The chopped rear fender looks humped on the top bike but the striping on the CVO smooth the lines, and ties in nicely with the dual-appearing mufflers. I’d take the CVO Pro Breakout over the Scout any day….if I were convinced it was going to be trouble-free relative to it’s price point.

  26. 26 Keith Jan 28th, 2016 at 9:49 am

    What’s old is new again.
    The Low Rider S is the reincarnate of the Cafe Racer.
    I happen to like both.

  27. 27 Woody's Jan 28th, 2016 at 9:52 am

    oh yeah, love the dash-less look of the CVO’s gas tank 🙂

  28. 28 toby Jan 28th, 2016 at 11:31 am

    OK, anybody notice the 800 pound gorilla in the room?

    Check out the pricing of the Lowrider S. $16,700! A standard Lowrider is $14,400. Add in the ABS, security, LED lighting, and other small items to the standard Lowerider and you essentially get the 110″ SE motor for free.

    I think that this is a glimpse of future pricing at HD. There is an old adage in the auto industry. Don’t cut the price, give away the options.

  29. 29 Sportman Jan 28th, 2016 at 1:48 pm

    Harley needs to fix all the flaws of their engine that they know are there but dont care. Last long enough to get the warranty time period then literally all hell breaks lose. Very dangerous flaws that harley absolutely refuses to fix after being notified by many mechanics and owners. Stop buying their bikes until they get off their high horse and fix what they should be obligated to fix if they gave a rats ass about their loyal customers. Also lose the stupid looking sons of anarchy b ullshit fairing. Come on harley have some compassion for the very people that love you or that love will be gone without warning.

  30. 30 Sportman Jan 28th, 2016 at 2:01 pm

    Fix the flaws in your bikes harley. Put some cooling fans on them so customers dont have to add what should be oem. Harley keeps making bigger engines that cant even ride in a parade without overheating. The technology used to shut down a cylinder would not be needed which is very insufficient itself instead of adding what is needed. Simple cooling fans. Not to mention the internal engine problems that can cause your engine to decintigrate while riding and cause a deadly accident. I will be surprised if this is published. My last one wasn’t.

  31. 31 cafesportytc Jan 28th, 2016 at 6:34 pm

    Oh hey they found another use for that stupid STREET fairing…

  32. 32 coma Jan 29th, 2016 at 7:58 am

    “stupid looking sons of anarchy b ullshit fairing.” you beat me to it, @Sportman.

  33. 33 Lumpy Jan 29th, 2016 at 9:51 am

    Why mention Polaris? Did someone on a Victory take your lunch money?

  34. 34 Lumpy Jan 29th, 2016 at 9:56 am

    Put the inverted front end on the Low Rider…

  35. 35 Steal Your Face Jan 29th, 2016 at 11:34 am

    @ Jim,

    Everything you say about the FXR makes sense. It wasn’t the cult bike when it was new, but Harley could very easily make a “New” FXR.
    Use the Twin Cam engine with the bagger powertrain-oil tank underneath. Have an inverted fork with dual disk radial mounted Brembos on large rotors, 180 tire on back with an aluminum swingarm and some high end shocks. Maybe even put the T Sport fairing and quick release bags on it. Or make a sport and sport touring version. It shouldn’t be that difficult for Harley to do since it is essentially a bagger frame with a shorter backbone. They could use the 2009 style FL front motor mount too.

    All the talk about how expensive the frame is to manufacture seems like a cop out since they already make the frame for baggers. Plus, fixtures/templates should still exist. (You’d think) Plenty of guys would be willing to pay an extra fee for this frame/bike, if that is really the reason.

  36. 36 Bill Hilly Jan 29th, 2016 at 1:29 pm

    If H-D Built a new FXR they would do well to consider using the liquid cooled Street 750 power-train (maybe bored and stroked to maximum allowable cu./ in.) This would be a great platform and would solve a lot of the heat and emissions issues which are caused by sticking to an air cooled approach for far too long. Plus, it’s actually a pretty good-looking little motor that is let down by the hit and miss styling of the rest of the bike.

  37. 37 GUNNEY67 Jan 29th, 2016 at 1:31 pm

    way to go Lumpy, being the first to beat all these experts to mention the front ends.

  38. 38 SK Jan 29th, 2016 at 1:53 pm

    I’d get really excited over semi-performance stance and suspension/braking like you said SYF–lift the rear and supply an 18″ rear wheel, full brembo/abs, and inverted deraked forks on the touring platform for a more upright forward ride with a little height to it. I see both these offerings and cringe at scraping exhaust on the first outing.

  39. 39 Blackmax Jan 30th, 2016 at 12:30 pm

    I like them both A LOT !!!
    (& I’m not a H-D fan !!!)
    The Low Rider S is just a bitchin’ little bike !!!
    I’d never pay CVO prices for any of the bikes,
    but the Pro Street Breakout has possibilities !!!
    After you spend the $$ in the aftermarket to make them run right !!!!

  40. 40 Zac Mar 20th, 2016 at 12:27 pm

    Your bikes are too expensive.
    That’s asinine.
    Your bikes aren’t “made in America.”
    The American blue-collar worker can no-longer afford them.
    Because of your greed and stupidity, I will never spend my hard earned money on a bike that has a reputation of breaking down, though it’s brand new. I’d rather go with an American made Honda as opposed to a Indian/Mexican made Harley.
    I hope somebody is paying attention. You’re Dicks for over pricing your bikes.
