Seacoast Harley-Davidson® – 2023 Harley-Davidson® Road Glide® vs Street Glide® Comparison near Hampton NH
The Street Glide® and Road Glide® are touring motorcycles and two of the most popular options in the Harley-Davidson® lineup, and the biggest difference when comparing the 2023 Harley-Davidson® Road Glide® vs 2023 Harley-Davidson® Street Glide® is the fairing. The Road Glide® has a fork-mounted fairing, and the H-D® design is referred to as the shark nose. The Street Glide®, on the other hand, has a fork-mounted fairing, and the H-D® design is referred to as the batwing.
Which fairing design is better comes down to the individual preferences of the rider. Generalizing a bit, frame-mounted fairings have traditionally been viewed as the superior option for long-distance touring, and fork-mounted fairings have been deemed more convenient for everyday use. This is supported by the fact that the Street Glide® has outsold the Road Glide® in recent years. A key reason why these bikes are so successful is that they are versatile and perfect for riding around town.
It’s all about the fairing when it comes to the 2023 Harley-Davidson® Street Glide® and 2023 Harley-Davidson® Road Glide®, which are both available at Seacoast Harley-Davidson®. There are slight differences in overall weight and length, but outside of the fairings, they’re essentially the same bikes. Harley-Davidson® even offers them in the same colors. Vivid Black is included in the MSRP, and Redline Red and Atlas Silver Metallic are premium options. Visit us near Hampton NH. Also serving Haverhill Massachusetts, Exeter, and Rochester New Hampshire.
