The out-of-production Low Rider is back on the roads. Let's take a look at the features of this all-new legend.

Introduced in 1977, the Low Rider was produced till 1995, when the company decided to stop the production of the bike. Later, it was discontinued from the 2010 H-D line-up.

However, the legend is back now with many advancements and an improved design.
