2014 Harley Davidson Dyna Low Rider

Posted on by  

Meet the all-new 2014 Harley Davidson Dyna Low Rider which draws inspiration from the iconic Low Rider that dominated the American streets back in the 70’s.

The bike has been built with agility in mind, so it comes with a relatively low weight (292 kg) and compact dimensions, two features that help you maneuver it without too much fuss.

Power comes from an air-cooled Twin Cam 103 injected v-twin lump engine with a displacement of 1690cc. The unit cranks out a maximum power of 75 hp at 5010 rpm and 126 Nm of torque at 3,500 and is paired with a 2-into-1 exhaust.

The stopping power is handled by dual 4-piston fixed calipers in the front and a 2-pot floating caliper at the rear. There is also available an optional ABS system. The ABS version of the Harley Davidson Dyna Low Rider can be yours for $14,199 (€10,245).

Style

Premium Custom Style
From wheel to wheel, the all-new Low Rider® model is a low riding feast for the eyes, loaded with high-end finishes as it holds true to the heritage of all the Low Rider® motorcycles that have rolled down the streets of the world before it. From the 70’s inspired seat to the chunky mag wheels to the true, sculpted beauty and finish on its 103 cubic inch V-Twin engine, this is premium Harley-Davidson custom style to the bone. So even though you’re riding low, you’re doing it in high style.

Chunky Mag Wheels
The all-new Low Rider® motorcycle rolls straight out of hot rod street culture on chunky mag wheels. The look is true, pure American muscle. There’s no substitute for it anywhere in the world.

Wrinkle Black and Chrome Twin Cam 103™ Engine
At the center of the Low Rider® model you’ll notice a Twin Cam 103™ engine that gets the full-on wrinkle black and chrome treatment. And at the center of that, you’ll notice a pork chop style air cleaner. True to form, the engine is the jewel of the motorcycle. Instantly recognizable as a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle on any street in the world. But if there were any confusion, the sound that it puts out would clear things up in a hurry.

True Custom Details
Here’s what your eyes discover on a journey over the Low Rider® motorcycle: A polished front end, wrinkle black and chrome powertrain, chrome-plated fender strut covers that give a nod to the past and feature wrinkle black cutouts that match the Low Rider® badging on the battery box cover. The headlight is capped off with a classically styled eyebrow that serves double duty as both the headlight and handlebar riser mount. Even the seat cover gets the custom treatment. It’s a perforated material that highlights the performance prowess at the heart of this great motorcycle.

Two-Tone Paint (Optional)
The Low Rider® model comes standard in deep, rich Vivid Black Harley-Davidson® paint. But you have the option to highlight its low profile with optional two-tone paint. Choose Brilliant Silver and Vivid Black or Amber Whiskey and Vivid Black. And see how low the Low Rider® motorcycle can go.

New 2-Into-1 One Exhaust
A new 2-into-1 exhaust that flows like liquid chrome adds some eye-popping custom style to the Low Rider® model. You’ll also like what it does for your ears. It’s tuned for a deep, rich rumble that no rider can ever get enough of.

Wrinkle Black Console with Speedo and Tach
There’s a new wrinkle black console with a speedo and tach mounted on the Low Rider® motorcycle’s classic Fat Bob® tank. The look ties in with the wrinkle black paint on the powertrain and fender strut covers. And gives a nice, subtle contrast to the Vivid Black paint on the tank. Because there’s no such thing as too many shades of black.

Pure Harley-Davidson Styling
Feast your eyes on the Twin Cam 103™ engine and there’s no mistaking its roots. This is authentic Harley-Davidson style through and through with an attention to detail you won’t find from any other motorcycle company. Black powder-coated heads and cylinders are highlighted by machined cooling fin tips and chrome rocker covers. It’s a jewel machined out of metal. Pure. Dripping with power. From the classic edge of the cooling fins to the clean lines of cases and covers—the Twin Cam 103™ engine makes an ironclad statement about holding on to what’s right and staying true to what satisfies.

Six-Speed Cruise Drive® Transmission
You want a ride that rumbles—not begs for mercy—when you lean on it a little. The Six-Speed Cruise Drive® transmission provides smooth, quiet shifting and reduces engine speed on the highway, so you get a better match between engine turnover and road speed. It’s a rare ride when a bike responds like this, and a low growl goes a long way when you’re opening up the road ahead.

Twin Cam 103™ Engine Heritage
The knowledge of what makes an engine truly move a rider runs deep at The Motor Company, and it was put to good use when we created the Twin Cam 103™ engine. We sweated bullets perfecting every cubic inch, pushing design and technology forward. And we did it all without compromising one bit of Harley-Davidson’s unique styling. Evolved, yet carrying on the legacy of the Flathead, Knucklehead, Panhead, Shovelhead, Evolution®, Twin Cam 88®; and Twin Cam 96™ engines that came before. The performance and durability are a direct result of the untold miles logged on the V-Twin since 1909, and the proud heritage that comes from a century’s worth of commitment to life on two wheels.

Twin Cam 103™ Engine Innovation
Fire up the Twin Cam 103™ engine and feel the low-end torque unleashed. Thanks to the lightweight piston design, delivery of the added power is more refined than ever. Then put your foot on the shifter and feel how the engine and Six-Speed Cruise Drive® transmission were designed to work together. Six speeds. A strong driveline and strong internal parts. Low routine maintenance. And a low cruising rpm couldn’t feel better.

Twin Cam 103™ Engine Power
Live your ride to the power of Twin Cam 103™. The air- cooled Twin Cam 103™ Harley Davidson® engine delivers more stump pulling torque, while its Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection jetting gives crisp, lively throttle reaction. It’s a performance punch that you’ll appreciate when passing, climbing hills, or rolling with luggage packed or a passenger in back—all under that signature Motor Company rumble. And it comes at lower cruising rpm, so you ride more smoothly, with less engine vibration and better highway fuel economy.

Technology

Harley Davidson Dyna Low Rider

H-D® Smart Security System
The factory-installed next-generation security system features a hands-free fob that automatically arms and disarms the vehicle electronic security functions as you approach and walk away from the bike. Stick the fob on your ignition key ring and let it do all the work. It’s this attention to details and security that make Harley-Davidson® motorcycles unique.

Anti-Lock Brakes
You may be cruising with swagger, but you know safety counts. This sophisticated, factory-installed ABS gives "stopping power" a double meaning. Its components are tastefully hidden within the wheel hub, so you’ll still turn heads with clean, streamlined design. But more importantly, you get certainty in the saddle knowing your bike’s going to behave when you need it.

Comfort

Perfect Fit Ergonomics
Whether you’re 1m55 or 1m85, thanks to perfect fit ergonomics, you can dial the new Low Rider® motorcycle in to fit you like a motorcycle glove. We developed perfect fit through an innovative look at how riders fit on a motorcycle using both simulation and actual rider studies. The result is a unique handlebar riser that provides 6cm of movement fore and aft and an innovative, yet simple, seat design, which allows you to select from two riding positions that offer an additional 3.8cm of adjustment fore and aft. This is pure Harley-Davidson steel tailored to your body.

Relocated Mid-Mount Controls
The Low Rider® model gives you the confidence-inspiring riding position that comes from mid-mount foot controls. Your feet are right where you want them to be, with an easy reach to the ground when it’s time to stop. Your knees ride naturally next to the tank for a good center of gravity and balance in the corners. And the controls have been positioned to give you easy access to the jiffy stand so there’s no fishing around with your foot when it’s time to dismount.
