Harley-Davidson completes its 2015 lineup with Ultra Lows, Freewheeler

Harley-Davidson has rolled the last of its new 2015 offerings out of the warehouse, and will have no further models to reveal between now and the end of the year.

The striking new models unveiled this week include the Electra Glide Ultra Classic Low and Ultra Limited Low, both vying hard for a new generation of younger and smaller riders.

The updated three-wheeled Harley, the Freewheeler, looks like it might be going in the other direction -- aimed at an aging rider who might not be as comfortable swinging a leg over a big bagger anymore.

The new Low bikes offer lower seat heights, a shorter reach to the handlebars, and even smaller grip sizes for smaller hands.

The new Freewheeler trike, meanwhile, offers a rear brake pedal that engages for front and rear braking systems, as well as a hydraulic Assist and Slip clutch that makes for softer clutch lever engagement.
