Introducing the Road Glide®
A true appreciation for the Harley-Davidson® Road Glide® Special begins with the model that serves as its inspiration. In its design, Harley-Davidson® takes an old-school approach to cruising. A defining characteristic is its frame-mounted shark-nosed fairing, and this is the fundamental difference between it and the Street Glide, which has the batwing fairing. Other notable characteristics include an upright riding position, floorboards, a passenger seat, saddlebags, an infotainment system and an optional suite of rider-assistance technologies that help you to maintain control when conditions are less than ideal. This bike also boasts the Milwaukee-Eight® 107 V-Twin engine, which needs little introduction.
Introducing the Road Glide® Special
Perhaps the most notable difference between the Harley-Davidson® Road Glide® Special and the standard model is that the Special trades in the Milwaukee-Eight® 107 for the 114. This has the obvious advantage of providing you with more power and torque out of the gate, but it also gives you more headroom if you decided to increase power by adding a stage kit. The Special also offers many additional style options. These include a number of two-tone color options, and you have the choice to stick with the chromed aesthetic of the standard model or go with the more modern appeal of having everything blacked out. The Special also has stretched-out saddlebags that are larger and provide more overall capacity.
The Road Glide® Special Is the Ideal Bike For…
Scheduling a Seacoast Harley-Davidson® test ride is the best way to determine if the Road Glide® Special is the perfect motorcycle for you. That said, this bike appeals to a particular kind of rider. It is first and foremost for riders who love to ride long distances. It is also for enthusiasts who prefer the classic H-D® touring aesthetic to the more modern approach. But classic does not have to mean stripped down, and you will find the same premium features that come with the more modern approach as well.
Thrilling and Dependable Performance
Over the standard model, you can expect about 10 more pound-feet of torque and eight more horsepower. This is not an increase that will make a significant difference at the lower end of the power band, but you will certainly feel it in the mid-range and at the upper end. If driving long distances on the highway appeals to you, then you will be glad to have the extra power when you need it. Hit on-ramps and off-ramps with authority. Overtake slower vehicles with ease, and cut through those twisties like a hot knife through butter.
Another advantage of the Special over the standard model is that the Special comes with the infotainment upgrade as standard equipment. This includes the larger 6.5-inch color HD touchscreen but also a wide range of other features not found on the more basic system. RDRS remains optional. It is important for anyone considering RDRS to note that this is a decision that you have to make pre-purchase. This advanced tech cannot be added to your motorcycle after the fact.
