The all-new Harley-Davidson Low Rider S and Low Rider ST are now available in Malaysia with prices starting from RM115,900.
The Low Rider S and Low Rider ST models combine the superb handling performance of the Harley-Davidson Softail chassis and V-Twin muscle.
The all-new Milwaukee-Eight 117 powertrain makes 103hp and a massive 170Nm @ 3,500rpm.
The Low Rider ST became the first mass-made Harley-Davidson to feature the 117 Milwaukee-Eight engine.
Harley-Davidson Low Rider S and Low Rider ST will officially launch in Malaysia in less than six months after its global introduction back in January 2022.
Despite sharing the exact blueprint as the 2022 Low Rider S, which includes the Softail chassis and associated components, the Low Rider ST features a different fairing and panniers.
The Low Rider ST also became the company’s first mass-made Harley to adopt the 117 Milwaukee-Eight V-Twin engine, previously reserved for the flagship CVO range.
In addition, the 2022 ST range only offers single-seaters with no passenger footpegs available. To ensure an exciting riding experience, the ST also gain longer rear shocks for better cornering clearance.
Meanwhile, the Low Rider ST is built based on the heavily updated Low Rider S and features the 117 Milwaukee-Eight engine that makes 103hp @ 4,750 rpm and 170Nm @ 3,500rpm.
Despite the bigger engine, the Low Rider S weighs as much as its predecessor, while the ST version weighs 327 kilograms.
According to Harley, the Low Rider S and ST also gain longer rear shocks allowing better cornering than its predecessor.
Nonetheless, the ST is differentiated by the addition of lockable panniers taken from the Sport Glide.
While the saddlebags are mounted higher to allow better lean angles, the new fairing, on the other hand, is inspired by the 80s FXRT, which itself followed the same styling from the water-cooled Nova V-4 prototype developed in the 70s.
However, while the air duct on the side of the headlight on the Nova fed air to the under-seat radiator, the one on the Low Rider ST is designed to help airflow around the rider.
Harley-Davidson also replaced the Low Rider S console-mounted gauge with a single mounted instrument that combines an analogue tachometer with a digital speedometer.
Meanwhile, both the Harley-Davidson Low Rider S and Low Rider ST will be available in two colourways; Vivid Black and Gunship Gray.
Customers can view the Harley-Davidson Low Rider S and Low Rider ST on display at Harley-Davidson Petaling Jaya and Route 77 (Harley-Davidson Kuala Lumpur) on the 11 and 12 June 2022.
