2017 Harley-Davidson Sportster SuperLow

2017 Harley-Davidson Sportster SuperLow Buyer's Guide | Specs & PriceTrue to its name, the 2017 Harley-Davidson SuperLow is the marque’s most welcoming bike for riders with shorter inseams. The seat height of 25.5 inches, friendly 883cc V-twin, and weight of 565 pounds with the generous 4.5-gallon tank topped off, make the SuperLow easy to manage at stops and when maneuvering at low speeds.

The suspension works better than you’d expect, given its limited travel, so handling is good. The Michelin Scorcher tires welcome canyon runs, but the lean angle is restricted due to the low-slung chassis, so take it easy when cornering.
