This new Softail® and its better suspensions, paired with the horses delivered by the Milwaukee-Eight 114, are going to blow your mind.
“The look of the new Low Rider S is really rooted in the legacy of the Low Rider models of the 1980s, that has a devoted following which has spread worldwide from origins in Southern California, and in the recent Dyna-based Low Rider S model,” says Brad Richards, Harley-Davidson Vice President of Styling & Design.”

2020 Low Rider S Specs
Harley-Davidson chose to equip the all new 2020 Low Rider S with the line-up most powerful engine: Milwaukee-Eight 114 (1868cc), a V-Twin capable of 93 HP, for a max torque of 155 Nm at 3.000 rpm.
An open air filter with a gloss black cap and a 2 in 2 set of exhaust complete this very competitive bundle put together by Harley.
The frame design has been modified to optimize its weight. A step toward agility is also visible in the steering head angle: it is now of 28°, a huge difference from the 30° of the standard Low Rider and the 32° of the old S model. A upside down fork and an adjustable rear shock definitely give away the 2020 Low Rider S nature.
The new brakes are very, very reliable.
The front double disk is reliable and modular, the ABS is stock on this version, which is a plus, at least for me. I really enjoy it on other models, so I am glad to see it on this model.

2020 Low Rider S Style
All trims are black on the new Low Rider S. Polished and matte details give this motorcycle an aggressive look.
The engine and the tank panel are in Wrinkle Black, while the clutch cover, the engine heads and the filter cap are Gloss Black.
Harley opted for jet black exhausts and for matte black fork, risers and handlebars. icening on the cake is the LED back light with smoked lens.
The tank has the iconic Harley-Davidson graphic in contrast with the model color. I am digging the black one with bronze rims and bronze Harley graphics.

First riding feelings
Nothing much to say: this motorcycle is sensational!
Fun to ride on bendy roads thanks to its light frame and the steering head new angle.
it is a bit heavy compared to other models but, dynamically, is almost unnoticeable.
Is clear that this Low Rider S preferes tyhe open roads to the urban clocked and boring ones.
See you on the road!
