I think this person is looking at lowered Sportsters anyway. The Superlow is the first HD that comes stock with radial tires. Also the big tank. The SL can improve with longer shocks and fork tubes like the other models. I also stated that the XL883R and XL1200R models would be my choice in the used market. Both have better cornering clearance and dual front disk brakes.

The XL1200X 48 has 27.8 right lean (deg) / 26.1 Left
The XL1200N Nightster has 29 degree right and 30 Left available lean.

STAY away from the Super Low IMO. It is a bike that should not be marketed to new riders.

The XL883N has a seat that is only .5 inches taller and it actually turns!
