The 2021 Harley Davidson Low Rider S: Blacked-out Factory Custom

It is no easy feat to have a standout custom Softail. For the 2021 Harley Davidson lineup, the design group delivers their custom Softail, the Low Rider S, in fully blacked-out trim with just a few highlighted bronze elements.

An American made Milwaukee-Eight™ 114 V-Twin engine powers this performance cruiser cranks out 100 HP, and 119 lb-ft of torque. To help keep you in the saddle with that power, Harley Davidson includes moto-style drag bars on 4” risers, and to bring you back to a stop dual front discs with standard ABS.

The Low Rider S frame rake is reduced to 28 degrees from the 30 degree rake of the standard Low Rider® model, resulting in more responsive handling.

2 color choices exist for the 2021 Harley Davidson Low Rider S: Vivid Black, Midnight Crimson.

2021 Harley Davidson Low Rider S

2021 Harley Davidson Low Rider S Features

Milwaukee-Eight® 114 Engine

Loads of torque for blasting off from stoplights, hitting entrance ramps, and rolling on the passing power. Pure sound with a soul-satisfying rumble.

Softail® Frame

The frame retains the classic Softail® lines, but its lightweight design and stiffness translate to a responsive ride unlike anything you’ve felt before.

Reduced Rake

The Low Rider® S model frame rake is reduced to 28 degrees from the 30 degree rake of the standard Low Rider® model, resulting in more responsive handling.

Mono-shock rear suspension

Easily adjustable mono-shock rear suspension allows for dynamic cornering capability, quicker acceleration, and braking while preserving the hardtail look.

Raw Dark Look

Blacked-out finishes, moto-style bars with 4-inch risers, and mini speed screen let everyone know that this machine wasn’t built for those who want to take the conventional route.

Raised Controls

The defining element of the tall-bike style. The 1-inch diameter motocross-style handlebar is mounted on 4-inch risers to put you in an aggressive riding position.

Cast-Aluminum Wheels

Radiate Cast-Aluminum Wheels are finished in a matte dark bronze to complete its raw dark look.

Dual Front Disc Brakes

Stronger braking performance with less lever effort than the single front disc brake on the standard Low Rider® model, and standard ABS (anti-lock braking system) for confident braking performance when conditions are less than ideal.

    Dear Sir,

    I am 68 years old. Male. Height – 5’5″ tall. Body Weight : 66 kg as at 29.7.21. I plan to travel from Kuala Lumpur to Central Asia by road . Thinking of buying Softail Low Rider because of its seat height and fuel tank capacity of 5 gallons.

    I have never ridden a Harley before.
    Question : Is the Softail Low Rider for such travel and sometimes one may have to travel off road especially through Burma and Pakistan. Is riding on the Low Rider a suitable and right choice ? Your valuable and honest advise is appreciated. TQ

      Ah yes one of the most challenging of questions, “would this be a good bike for…”. Let me see if I can help by giving you a few things to consider. How important is it for you on this ride that the bike has certain handling traits? Does the bike need to be nimble for easy movement in traffic or to avoid obstacles on poor roads? Are you able to pick up a 310kg bike if you are alone and drop it? How much “stuff” do I need to pack along on the bike?

      Is the Softail Low Rider capable of such a trip? Certainly, it is, I would just be looking to change the tires for a set suitable for the conditions you expect to find. Need some proof? Have fun watching Million Dollar Bogan on youtube taking Harleys in places most never would.
      The most important factor is your experience level. Harley Davidson bikes require a muscled approach when trying to take through more challenging terrain. They are more than tough enough but remember they are designed for long open paved roads of America. How much similar terrain will you be traveling on?

      Good Luck, sounds like a very fun trip.
