2022 Harley-Davidson 1920 Softail Low Rider ‘El Diablo’ FXRST


For her second creation in the “Icons” collection, Harley has chosen to ignite the spirits. the Low Rider ST was selected to shake eyes with an “El Diablo” version. Bathed in a furnace, powered by a heart of beef, this feverish Club-Style blows heat on the road.

As with the CVOs, the paint job shows a very special quality. The craftsmen of the Gunsliger workshop apply the borders and different layers of paint by hand. These red and burgundy filigree effects with gold ombre are striking. And much more expressive than the sad black and gray hues of the Standard Low Rider ST.

The devil is not hiding, with his horns and tail to dress up the manufacturer’s logo. With its fairing and its dress, the Low Rider El Diablo pays direct homage to the FXRT of 1983 – the first FX (Factory Exexperimental) to bear the name of Sport Glide. This is the very essence of the “Icons” range: to seek out emblematic models from the past to celebrate them today through limited series.

It will be 1500 copies for El Diablo, all numbered. Owners will appreciate this model, strong in body and better equipped. It receives a Rockford Fosgate audio system as standard, available as an option for the Low Rider ST. A 250 watt amp sends PA through 133mm speakers, after being processed by a DSP processor and 7-band EQ. The volume may vary depending on the speed. For the music library, the system connects via Bluetooth.

If Terminator has settled on the Fat Boy, the devil could very well crash his fork with this Low Rider. Especially for its engine, very representative of American mechanical temptation. For El Diablo, the biggest of the manufacturer’s twins will gravel the characters and the judgments. More than 17 mkg of torque at just 3500 rpm. The Heavy Breather air filter directly announces the impetuosity of the enormous mechanics behind it. The 117-ci Milwaukee Eight comes close to two liters of displacement, from which we only subtracted a glass of bourbon.

With its semi-fairing, its small windshield and its 54-litre suitcases, Phlégéton’s FXRST invites you on certain trips, at the crossroads of big tourers, baggers and cruisers. With a strong style like a rare and peppery steak bathed in tabasco. Being shy is excluded from origin.
