Bringing in 3 new Motorcycle's

Harley-Davidson Inc. has introduced three new motorcycles for 2011, including a Sportster meant for shorter and inexperienced riders.

The bikes were unveiled Tuesday at the company’s summer dealership meeting in Las Vegas. Also shown were bikes with changes such as anti-lock brakes.

Just as anti-lock brakes have become standard on most automobiles, the technology has become more accepted in motorcycling, said Harley-Davidson spokesman Paul James.

“It provides you with a good margin of safety when riding in all kinds of weather,” James said.

The latest Sportster, called the SuperLow, comes with a revised chassis, new wheels and tires, a reshaped seat and new handlebars.

Even though it’s another Sportster, the bike handles differently than previous models.

“The new SuperLow is aimed squarely at people who are new to motorcycling,” James said.

The new Road Glide Ultra has a frame-mounted fairing. It also comes with anti-lock brakes, a 103-cubic-inch engine, cruise control, a security system, a luggage carrier, and a four-speaker, 80-watt Harman/Kardon audio system.

The third new Harley-Davidson is the XR1200X that comes with adjustable front and rear suspension.

The original XR1200, introduced in Europe in 2007, has become popular with riders looking for performance and sporty handling.

Harley’s 2011 motorcycle lineup will be available almost immediately, with most dealers having the bikes by August. Prices went down a couple of thousand dollars on 2011 V-Rod models, according to James, and at $7,999 the SuperLow sells for about $1,000 less than the 883 Low Sportster.
