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.
