The Harley-Davidson® Road Glide® gives you all the power and glory of the Harley touring tradition along with impressive standard features to make your trip as easy comfortable as possible. This is the bike for logging serious miles, and you’ll be thrilled and amazed at how well such a monster can handle. The Harley-Davidson® Road Glide® is a great touring motorcycle with all the Harley-Davidson® styling.
At 820 pounds, the 2018 Harley-Davidson® Road Glide® is a middleweight monster with a 1746 cc, Milwaukee-Eight® 107 engine. The 6-gallon tank typically provides fuel economy in excess of 45 mpg, perfect for long hauls. The ride is smooth and comfortable, with an effortless clutch, air shocks, and a cushy saddle. Add to that frame-mounted fairing, roomy saddlebags, and the overall responsiveness of the power-plant, and you’ve got a great tourer that doesn’t feel anywhere near its actual weight at speed.
Debuting in 1998, the Harley-Davidson® Road Glide® brought back the frame-mounted Tour fairing HD had introduced in 1980 on the famous Tour Glide. Other manufacturers have tried to capture some of this market segment in recent years, but the FLTR Road Glide has the history and expertise of Harley-Davidson, making it the undisputed king. In fact, the Road Glide is considered by many to be the ideal touring motorcycle, in terms of both aesthetics and functionality.
