As much as we like the standard Harley-Davidson Low Rider, the Low Rider S is the real deal. If you can swing the additional $2750 price tag, it’s worth it.Not only do you get upgraded to the Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 110 motor, with a staggering 114 ft/lbs of torque, but you also get upgraded suspension—cartridge forks and emulsion shocks.
From a visual standpoint, you better like black, because the Low Rider S comes in just one color, and almost everything save the Magnum Gold wheels is non-reflective.The solo seat sets you apart, and the small fairing around the headlight signals that this is a performance motorcycle. The handling is quite good, thanks to the Michelin Scorcher 31 tires and improved suspension, and the Low Rider S is a comfortable ride.Read our Harley-Davidson Dyna Low Rider S Review.Visit our Motorcycle Buyer’s Guide.
Zero Electric ADV Bike + Al and Bridget from Throw Your Leg Over
byMotos and Friends by Ultimate Motorcycle
Hello everyone and welcome to Motos and Friends, a weekly Podcast brought to you by the editorial team at Ultimate Motorcycling. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
Electric mobility is everywhere nowadays. Whether it’s a car, a truck, an assisted bicycle, a scooter, or any number of new innovations, the electric revolution is certainly here. In this week’s first segment, Nic de Sena took a ride on Zero’s recently announced new Adventure bike—the Zero DSR-X. There’s been a lot of hype about this new arrival on the ADV scene, and of course the questions are many. Nic talks to me about whether Zero actually have a credible, alternative energy ADV bike—or if the machine is just simply an empty promise.
In our second segment, I chat with Al and Bridget from ‘Throw Your Leg Over’. They took time out to record this episode from somewhere in the middle of Romania, of all places.
These interesting Aussies have traveled—and painstakingly documented—the thousands of miles they’ve covered riding the best roads and sights through Australia, Tasmania, Europe, eastern Europe, and Scandinavia, among other places.
