2014 Harley-Davidson SuperLow 1200T Photos/Wallpaper/Images/PicsAhead of Daytona Bike Week, Harley-Davidson unveiled two new motorcycles – the 2014 Low Rider and the machine shown above, the SuperLow 1200T.
The Harley SuperLow 1200T attacks a particular demographic – the entry-level tourer. To achieve this, Harley took its number-one entry-level motorcycle, the Sportster, and added a host of touring amenities, including mini floorboards, a windshield and hard saddlebags – the latter two featuring Harley’s quick-detachable system.The SuperLow 1200T is built on the SuperLow 883’s easy-to-handle chassis, but features the Evolution 1200 V-Twin engine that produces 70.8 ft/lbs of torque. The 1200T features a 26.1-inch seat height, and the ergonomics are designed to cater to riders 5’1” to 5’7”, allowing for easier reach to the ground, handlebar and foot controls.Harley didn’t skimp on suspension; the 1200T features a 39mm Showa front fork, and rear shock absorbers that offer easy pre-load adjustments so riders can accommodate both the weight of a passenger and luggage.Stopping the SuperLow 1200T is a 300mm single disc up front, and a 260mm single rear disc out back. ABS is also available for $795 over the starting price of $11,799.Attached above is a photo gallery of the 1200T, the pics taken during the bike’s launch at Daytona.

Hello everyone and welcome once again to Ultimate Motorcycling’s weekly Podcast—Motos and Friends.
My name is Arthur Coldwells.
This week’s Podcast is brought to you by Yamaha motorcycles. Discover how the YZF-R7 provides the perfect balance of rider comfort and true supersport performance by checking it out at YamahaMotorsports.com, or see it for yourself at your local dealer.
This week’s episode features Senior Editor Nic de Sena’s impressions of the beautiful new Harley-Davidson Low Rider ST that is loosely based around the original FXRT Sport Glide from the 1980s. Hailing from The Golden State, these cult-status performance machines became known as West Coast style, with sportier suspension, increased horsepower, and niceties including creature comforts such as a tidy fairing and sporty luggage.
In past episodes you might have heard us mention my best friend, Daniel Schoenewald, and in the second segment I chat with him about some of the really special machines in his 170 or so—and growing—motorcycle collection. He’s always said to me that he doesn’t consider himself the owner, merely the curator of the motorcycles for the next generation.
Yet Daniel is not just a collector, but I can attest a really skilled rider. His bikes are not trailer queens, they’re ridden, and they’re ridden pretty hard. Actually, we have had many, many memorable rides on pretty much all of the machines in the collection at one time or another.
From all of us here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
