All new model flaunts attitude and mile-devouring function!
Spy photos, gossip and speculation have flooded the internet because Harley-Davidson fans around the globe anticipated the return of the Road Glide® motorcycle.
Weeks before the announcement of the complete 2015 model line-up, we're previewing the Road Glide Special, one our new 2015 motorcycles. Infused with DNA of the customer-led product development effort Project RUSHMORE, the sleek, shark-nose Touring model has been revealed at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota, USA.
The Road Glide has always had an incredibly passionate following, which is why its return to the model line-up is exciting for our customers and company. With Project Rushmore technology, intuitive features and great new styling, we’re delivering an improved ride for the Road Glide faithful and the many others looking for even more Project Rushmore touring motorcycle options.
One look at the new contour of the famous Road Glide Special fairing is all it takes to see form and convention were put aside and a new rebellious design emerged. The Road Glide Special motorcycle earned its status satisfying the hard core and now it is back. From the wicked new Dual Reflector Daymaker™ LED headlights to the hand-adjustable low-profile rear suspension, the Road Glide Special motorcycle is proof of what can happen when you hold a higher standard and take the time required to meet it.
The Road Glide has always been a bike for a rider who’s cut from a different cloth, a person who wants to make a statement as they chase the freedom of the road. This new model respects that spirit while offering a significant improvement in comfort, and the full suite of Project RUSHMORE features that have been such a huge hit with touring riders around the world.
Shaped by countless hours of wind tunnel testing, the new frame-mounted Road Glide Special fairing features a triple Splitstream fairing that significantly reduces head buffeting while still providing comfortable airflow around the rider. The brilliant white beams of the Dual Daymaker™ Reflector LED headlamp cuts through the murkiest of nights. Centred in the inner fairing is the premium Boom!™ Box 6.5GT infotainment system with touch screen and GPS navigation, which can also be controlled by twin joysticks located on a new swept-back handlebar that puts the rider in a commanding, comfortable position.
A High Output Twin Cam 103™ V-Twin engine burbles through two chrome mufflers, its abundant torque output always on tap with just a twist of the throttle. Touring features include One-Touch hard saddlebags, cruise control and easy-to-read gauges. For extra ride confidence the Road Glide Special features Reflex™ Linked Brakes with ABS and an exclusive painted inner fairing and hand-applied pin-striping move the styling up a notch.
The full Model Year 15 line-up will be revealed soon, keep an eye out for updates and to see when these brand new machines will land in dealership.
