One Of The Softail Initiates From The Dyna Family

The blade with which Harley-Davidson streamlined its cruiser lineup cut deep and wide with an entire branch (Dyna) finding itself pruned from the family tree. That’s right, we lost the successor to the FXR family, and have only the Softail lineup for cruiser work. Though we’ve lost an iconic family (that I never cared for, I should probably add), my target for today picks up the torch from a particluar Dyna model that held a special place in the hearts of many, the Low Rider. Powered by the new-to-cruisers Milwaukee-Eight engine with a total of 110 pound-feet of torque, the new agile Softail frame brings heretofore unseen performance to the family. Good thing too, since the MoCo is pinning its hopes for success in the cruiser market on models like the new Low Rider. What else has Harley packed onto the ride? Read on to find out.

2015 - 2017 Harley-Davidson Dyna Low Rider / Low Rider S

When the original FXS Low Rider hit showroom floors back in ’77, it was immediately popular and dominated Harley-Davidson sales. Based on the FX Super Glide, which was essentially a mishmash of parts from the big-frame FL and smaller XL (Sportster) models, the FXS was the first attempt by the factory (under the blighted AMF banner) to emulate the look of the home-job customs that were popular at the time.

Since then, the FXS changed from the original, hard-mount frame to the rubber-mount, FXR frame in the early eighties, and has been built on the new, hybrid Dyna frame (FXDL) since ’91. Fast forward to 2017, and you can see The Motor Company hard at it to further improve and refine the Low Rider, and these latest versions are certainly the best yet. Read on to find out why.
