Summer thunder came early to Gauteng this year - from the exhausts of 150 Harley-Davidsons en route to Harley on Safari 2013. Were you there?

Back 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.

Now that defiant attitude has returned 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 headlight visor and wrinkle-black trim are touchstone styling elements from the original Low Rider model.

CALIBRATED SUSPENSION

The unrelenting thrust of the Twin Cam 103 powertrain signals departure with a satisfying and 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.

Price: From 175 950
