Harley Davidson pushes out two more new models to the 2014 line up


Harley-Davidson, going after new riders, younger riders and female riders, has brought back its 1970s Low Rider with some new 2014 features. (Tom Roche / Harley-Davidson)

Harley-Davidson continues its aggressive push to put new models onto showroom floors and between riders' legs for 2014.

Only months after announcing the impending arrival of the new Street 500 and Street 750, the company has now unveiled two new 2014 models, the Low Rider and Super Low.

The Low Rider is a return to old times. The company put a similar model on the market in 1977. The 2014 version, which the company promises contains "old school class and exciting new performance," is propelled by the Harley Twin Cam 103 engine and features dual front disc brakes, an attractive 2-into-1 exhaust, and traditional Harley good looks.

The Super Low 1200T is, as the T suggests, more of a touring machine. It runs the Evolution V-Twin engine -- but weighs an advertised 118 pounds less than the company's lightest Big Twin touring bike -- and comes standard with a detachable windshield and locking saddlebags.

The machines are going to get their official public unveiling at this weekend's Daytona Bike Week festivities, and are already said to be arriving in dealerships.

I was just reading about the 1200T last night. I hadn't seen anything on the Lowrider.
Thanks for posting.

Well, I am kind of partial to the XL1200 since that is what I have.
My bike is actually similar to the 1200T. I have very similar leather bags, and a windshield, although the 1200T has a full shield instead of smaller sport shield like mine. I like the new cast wheels. The 1200T had mid controls, I prefer forwards.
I think it is ideal if you want a smaller touring cruiser bike. Fuel mileage and handling will be better than a full size big twin bagger. But I doubt it would be as comfortable. The 1200 has plenty of power.
If I were looking for this type of bike, I wouldn't hesitate to buy one. The Evo 1200 is a proven reliable engine.

Price for the 1200T starts at $11,800.

the 1200T should be nice

118 lbs lighter than the comparable model is pretty serious.

More "new" models made out of different combinations of existing parts most of which have been in production for a decade or longer. There is nothing actually new, as in new engineering, frames, engines or suspensions on either model. They are only "new" because some marketing weenie in Milwaukee says so and thinks you will buy their wretched excuse for "new". It is laughable.

It still weighs more than my liquid cooled, fully faired K100RS with saddlebags attached, and has about 25 horses less horsepower than my three decade old Beemer. The K bike is 549 lbs fully fueled and has 90 horses. It is a sorry thing when a three decade old BMW is still superior in every way to a brand new Harley, but there you are, and people will buy their crap as fast as they can churn it out.
