The Harley-Davidson® Road Glide® was first introduced in 1998. In its two decades on the road, the model has become an icon among American touring machines. The latest iteration, the 2019 Harley-Davidson® Road Glide® Special, carries on this proud tradition with even more power than previous models, as well as a range of new tech features designed to keep the rider comfortable and connected, whether they're riding cross-country or around the corner.
Long on Power
One of the main upgrades to this year's Harley-Davidson® Special touring models is that they all now come standard with the Milwaukee-Eight® 114 V-twin engine. This 114-cubic-inch baby cranks out an impressive 123 foot-pounds of torque at 3000 RPMs. That's plenty of power to handle all the twisting miles of backroads that this bike was designed to carve up with ease.
Tech That's up to the Task
A major focus of 2019 models was improving the integration of technology and the overall user experience. The console display can be operated with the hand controls or by a touch screen. Harley-Davidson® partnered with Gorilla® Glass to create a touch screen that works even with gloved hands in the rain. Riders also have the option of adding Apple CarPlay®, making the bike compatible with a range of devices, granting access to all of the device's apps, and offering voice command functionality.
The 2019 Harley-Davidson® Road Glide® Special is a fine piece of American machinery that gives a rider an optimal level of control and comfort while being powerful enough to handle whatever the road brings.
