Harley-Davidson is at it again, and this time the latest limited edition motorcycle from Milwaukee has a bit of spice to it yet is more attainably priced when compared to the company's CVO models.
The Low Rider El Diablo builds upon the 2022 Low Rider ST and joins the Harley lineup as part of the Icons collection. That means 160Nm of stump-pulling grunt from the Milwaukee-Eight 117 engine along with a trick paint job and Rockford Fosgate audio system – and it could be yours for the cool price of $42,750.
“The Low Rider El Diablo is a modern expression of the iconic 1983 Harley-Davidson FXRT and a representation of the creative times it was born in,” said Brad Richards, H-D’s Vice President of Design and Creative Director.
“It embodies the spirit of counterculture in Southern California in the ‘80s in a contemporary package that features meticulously crafted custom paint, including pinstripe trajectories that nod directly to those of the original FXRT.”
Harley says the idea for the Low Rider El Diablo was to create a model to take style and the company’s idea of sports touring performance to an extreme. Looking at it, they’ve certainly achieved that goal.
The Low Rider El Diablo combines the touring capability of hard bags and frame-mounted fairing with the taut handling performance of the Harley-Davidson Softail chassis and the V-Twin muscle of a Milwaukee-Eight 117 powertrain.
Global production of the model will be limited to a one-time build of 1,500 serialised examples so if you want one, you'll need to act quickly.
