I am a new rider and have been looking for the perfect bike for a few years. I am 5 feet 1 inches so I thought about bigger bikes. I have to say when I saw the SuperLow I didn't realize it was even a Sportster. I thought with the tank and the wider forks it was a bigger bike. Didn't have that Sportster look. It is so comfortable. Being tall I had to put forward controls on it and move handlebars up but now she's perfect. Couldn't be happier with my 2012 SuperLow! Love, love love!

The handlebars are too high. It forces my arms to bend at the elbow and at the wrist. This limits my riding to a couple of hours before fatigue. It also reduces confidence when making quicker turns and creates a large pocket of air at the torso when running on the highway. The HD catalog or site doesn't provide options in handlebars for this model. I think this SuperLow may be the redheaded stepchild of Harley or Davidson.

My wife (5'2") bought a 2011 Harley SuperLow Sportster. We just looked at the new Fat Boy Lo and the Slim. These bikes are supposed to be lower, but she is so short that her legs cannot touch the kickstand. My question is, is there any other seat that will bring her closer to the controls and place her lower to the ground? We have been looking at the Mustang seat with the backrest. Would that help her any?

Hi, Kent—This is a common problem for shorter-than-average female (and some male) riders. Luckily there are plenty of aftermarket options to remedy it! To name just a few, the "Heels Down" seat from Saddlemen, which works for Sportsters, moves the rider lower and forward. Harley-Davidson offers a Reduced Reach Forward Control Conversion Kit that repositions the forward-mounted footpegs and foot controls up and back by two inches, while the company's Reduced Reach Seat for the Sportster SuperLow moves the rider about half an inch forward. You might also check out this article about the pros and cons of changing out a motorcycle's shocks in order to lower the seat height. Finally, another great place to ask this question is the WRN Forum, where you might receive advice from other Sportster SuperLow owners. Good luck to you both!

I took a 2012 for a spin just around the dealer parking lot. I immediately saw the difference...but it was my understanding that there are differences between the 2011 and the 2012/13 SuperLow. I had a 2005 883 Low and had a hard time balancing it and backing it up. I am 5 feet and weigh about 110 pounds soaking wet! I really liked the 2012 but are you saying that the first year for the Super Low was 2011? I am still shopping so any info you can provide will help me.
