One look at the new contour of the famous Road Glide® fairing is all it takes to see that the past form and convention were put aside and a new rebellious design emerged. Shaped by countless hours of wind tunnel testing, the new frame- mounted fairing features triple Splitstream venting that significantly reduces head buffeting while still providing comfortable airflow around the rider. A new swept-back handlebar puts the rider in a commanding, comfortable position.The brilliant white beams of the Dual Daymaker™ Reflector LED headlamp blast through the murkiest of nights. A High Output Twin Cam 103™ V-Twin engine burbles through two chrome mufflers, its abundant torque always on tap with just a twist of the throttle. And touring features include One-Touch hard saddlebags, cruise control, easy-to-read gauges, adjustable air-ride rear suspension and new ergonomic hand controls with intuitive design and improved tactile feel.
Select premium features elevate the Road Glide® Special from the base model. Centered in the inner fairing is the color screen of a the premium Boom!™ Box 6.5GT infotainment system with touch screen and GPS navigation. Reflex™ Linked Brakes with ABS, hand-adjustable low-profile rear suspension enhance ride and performance, and an exclusive gloss Black painted inner fairing (Denim fairing Black Denim models) and hand-applied pinstriping, move the styling up a notch.
