  • The all-new Low Rider S gets blacked-out treatment.
  • It is powered by the Milwaukee-Eight 114 motor.

  • The rake is steeper than before.

Harley-Davidson is updating its entire model lineup one by one. And the latest one to receive an overhaul is the Low Rider S. While the previous model was all about in-your-face character with the striking paint options and chrome finish, the all-new model has been given a stealthy makeover. The 2020 Low Rider S is available in just two paint options – Vivid Black and Barracuda Silver. And if you love all things black, then Harley has swapped all the chrome parts with blacked-out ones.

If you think that the 2020 Low Rider S has received just new paint options, then you’d be wrong. It gets a steeper rake compared to the base model at 28 degrees, which the company claims should improve the riding dynamics of the motorcycle. Additionally, the “moto-style bars” now sit on 4-inch risers. While the rear suspension is similar to the Softail lineup, Harley says that the internals of the 43mm front fork has been updated.
