Low Rider S 2021 Harley-Davidson Softail Cruisers Review

With a Milwaukee-Eight® 114 engine ignited by the power of superior suspension components, this performance-first cruiser has a look and feel inspired by the coastal build scene. Blacked-out performance cruiser, the Low Rider S 2021 Harley-Davidson Softail Cruisers, has a look that matches its performance. The Milwaukee-Eight 114 Engine has enough torque to get you out of a stoplight, onto a ramp, rolling down the passing lane, and rumbling, soul-satisfying sonic bliss. Blacked-out finishes, 4-inch riser moto-style bars, and a tiny speed screen make it clear that this bike isn’t for the traditionalist. The characteristic of tall-bike riding is an aggressive riding stance provided by a 1-inch diameter motocross-style handlebar placed on 4-inch risers.

Low Rider S 2021 Harley-Davidson Softail Cruisers

Modern technology meets authentic tradition for a ride full of power, flair, and a pure sense of freedom—a factory-built bespoke performance cruiser with a dark exterior.

Low Rider S 2021 Harley-Davidson Softail Cruisers – Features and Price

Milwaukee-Eight 114 Engine

Having a lot of torque for accelerating from a standstill, negotiating ramps, and cruising on passing power is essential. Rumbling, soul-satisfying sonic bliss.

Softail Frame

Lightweight design and rigidity provide the Softail® a responsive ride unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before.

Reduced Rake

To make the Low Rider S model more responsive, the rake of the frame has been decreased from 30 degrees to 28 degrees.

Inverted Front Fork

Single-cartridge internal technology reacts rapidly to inputs and maintains the front wheel grounded for increased braking and handling performance, while the inverted front-end design stiffens the front end.

Mono-Shock Rear Suspension

Dynamic turning, faster acceleration, and braking are all possible thanks to the mono-shock rear suspension.

Raw Dark Look

There’s little doubt that this bike was created for thrill-seekers, thanks to its blacked-out finish, moto-style bars with 4-inch risers, and small speed screen.

Raised Controls

Characteristic of the tall-bike look. The aggressive riding posture is made possible by 4-inch risers installed on a 1-inch diameter motocross-style handlebar.

Cast-Aluminum Wheels are given a matte dark bronze polish to complete the vehicle’s rough, gloomy appearance.

Dual Front Disc Brakes

Dual front disc brakes and ABS (anti-lock braking system) for assured braking performance when circumstances are less than optimum are standard on all Low Rider® models.

There’s no better way to understand how far the Softail line has come than to take a look at the Low Rider S. A new wave of bespoke bikes began in 2018, and this is the latest iteration. The Milwaukee-Eight v-twin engine provides plenty of power and responsiveness on every Softail. As is customary, each model has a distinct personality and flair. Ranges from the blacked-out nostalgia of the Heritage Classic to the cutting-edge edge of the Fat Bob model. Find the one that best suits your personality. A roller coaster awaits you.
