Most every guy, at one point or another, has tinkered with the idea of buying a Harley. Maybe they read “Hells Angels” by Hunter Thompson, maybe they are fans of “Sone of Anarchy,” but the loud and dirty appeal of the classic American motorcycle is undeniable. It’s just they’re pretty expensive, relatively. And they’re big.
Harley knows this, and has designed a new ride to let more, younger riders in on the fun. It’s called the SuperLow which is a description of both its price point and its seat height. This makes it much more stable than some of its heavier, higher, big brothers. Hence, it’s easier to ride, and as the least expensive new bike in their 2011 fleet, it’s easier to buy.
“Comfort and easy handling are key aspects of the SuperLow experience,” said Paul James, director of product communication for Harley-Davidson, adding, “The new SuperLow satisfies a young audience’s desire for an easy-to-ride, affordable bike with classic Harley looks.”
Other features include a new, ergonomic handlebar shaped to provide a natural arm position and Michelin Scorcher tires with a tread pattern and construction to improve handling. Also fueling the SuperLow rider’s assurance is a greater cruising range. Its classic, walnut-style tank holds 4.5 gallons of fuel, allowing more than 200 miles of travel. A broad V-Twin powerband and clean styling complete the package.
With an MSRP starting at $7,999 in Vivid Black, the SuperLow is the lowest-priced model in the 2011 Harley-Davidson line. Combined with classic styling, an appealing wide and low stance, and retro color schemes like Birch White and Sedona Orange, Merlot Sunglo and Vivid Black, Cool Blue Pearl, and Vivid Black, the SuperLow is the easiest way to join the Harley family.
