Harley-Davidson confirms Low Rider S and the CVO Pro Street Breakout.
Harley-Davidson has taken the covers off two new models - the Low Rider S and the CVO Pro Street Breakout, we believe both will make their way to Australia.
The Pro Street Breakout comes from the Custom Vehicle Operations division (CVO).
CVO motorcycles are customised with premium components, exclusive paint treatments and surface finishes and combined with selected items from the Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Accessories range.
Harley-Davidson Styling Director Brad Richards says “The Pro Street Breakout represents a new dimension of CVO motorcycles.”
The CVO program is often used to introduce new custom elements and techniques and the company is developing alternate finishes to bright chrome, introducing brushed or anodised surfaces and tinted clear-coat.
Brad said the Breakout really lent itself to this new styling direction.
As well as styling enhancements, the CVO Pro Street Breakout has also received some performance tweaks.
The engine is fitted with black blunt-cut mufflers, an open-element Screamin’ Eagle Heavy Breather Elite intake and a high performance Assist & Slip hydraulically actuated clutch.
The CVO Pro Street Breakout also receives new 43mm inverted forks in a robust three-bolt triple-clamp, dual front disc brakes with floating rotors, a Reduced Reach front brake lever and ABS as standard equipment.
The Low Rider S is a new performance cruiser powered by the Screamin’ Eagle Twin Cam 110 engine.
This engine is the largest capacity engine Harley-Davidson installs at the factory, and when combined with the Screamin’ Eagle Heavy Breather performance intake and Fat Bob-style 2-into-2 exhaust, this engine generates 13% more power than the standard Low Rider model.
The bike is fitted with a heavy-duty clutch and 6-speed Cruise Drive transmission. Cruise control enabled by electronic throttle control is standard equipment.
The Low Rider S is only available with Vivid Black on the sheet metal and the engine and exhaust are finished in a combination of gloss black and wrinkle black powdercoat. Other black finishes maintain the dark theme from the forks to the console to the rear fender struts.
The only exceptions to black on this bike are the new Magnum Gold lightweight cast-aluminium wheels, and a gold tank badge that pays homage to the 1977 XLCR Café Racer model.
The Low Rider S joins the recently released Fat Boy S and Softail Slim S models as the third member of Harley-Davidson’s S Series cruiser line-up.
