Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Low Rider

Q. Is the ground clearance of Harley Davidson Low Rider sufficient for our Indian rural road conditions?
  • Harley Davidson Low Rider comes with a ground clearance of 130mm which will be little uncomfortable to ride in rural or rough roads. Moreover, we'd suggest you take a test ride so that you can understand the difference which will help you to purchase - Bike Dealer
  • No. It has to be modified and raised. I have done it and have right now put my bike up for sale
Q. Which bike is better between Harley Davidson low rider, 1200 Custom and Triumph Speedmaster? Feature wise as well as road presence wise?
  • The Speedmaster corners quite well for a cruiser and is only held back by its low cornering clearance. The 1200cc liquid-cooled parallel twin motor might have the same internals as the Bonneville T120’s ‘High Torque’ unit but it is tuned to the same specification as the Bonneville Bobber. It is a highly torquey motor with plenty of shove available across the rev range before tapering off post 6000rpm. Refinement is of top order, with only a small amount of vibration creeping around the top end of the rev band. The gearbox and clutch feature light actuation and riding the bike in the city feels effortless. The Speedmaster looks fantastic, has a gem of a motor, rides well, handles well and ticks all the boxes required of a good cruiser. It is priced at Rs 11.11 lakh (Rs 12.34 lakh with Highway kit, ex-Delhi), which places it between the Harley-Davidson 1200 Custom (Rs 10.65 lakh) and the Indian Scout (Rs 12.7 lakh). The Speedmaster is easy to ride and comes with a host of electronic aids that make it appealing even to novice riders while also offering fantastic value. The only issue we had from the bike was the odd handlebar position but even that can be replaced with one from Triumph's extensive parts catalogue. When compared to its competition, the Speedmaster definitely offers better value. Whereas, at Rs 13.59 lakh (ex-showroom pan India), the Low Rider is the second most affordable bike in Harley’s Softail range in India. Its positioning, though, is a bit difficult to explain, especially in the Indian market. It makes sense in the US market where the Low Rider enjoys massive nostalgia value, and this (slightly) modernised take on the original is well accepted. Do take a test ride in order to judge your riding comfort.
