Although all models with the new Twin-Cooled Milwaukee-Eight 107 motor benefit from the narrower primary drive design, it is most effective on the 2017 Harley-Davidson Ultra Limited Low, a full dresser designed for riders with abbreviated inseams.Harley has cut the travel of the Showa Dual Bending Valve forks and emulsion shocks by an inch, and given the Ultra Limited Low the two-up Electra Glide seat.
The result is a bike that sits two inches lower than the standard Ultra Limited, and it has handlebars pulled back two inches, giving the Ultra Limited Low decidedly compact ergonomics.The rest of the Low is pure Ultra Limited, so the rider enjoys a luxurious ride with the cream of Harley’s high-end touring features.Visit our Motorcycle Buyer’s Guide.
