When we discuss how this motorbike carries such heavyweight, which is a huge issue when riding in the city, the weight goes and the sense of reluctance to ride the motorcycle as soon as the 118 Milwaukee 1868cc V-Twin engine ignites and gets the bike moving on the roads.
For lengthy hauls, the total weight distribution gets devised, making the bike incredibly simple to ride vast distances quickly, thanks to the touring chassis. The continuous tarmac with low traffic and few twisties makes the Road Glide Special feel at home.
This motor, which has a tonne of torque, is more than adequate. When the throttle turns, the motorcycle moves effortlessly despite its weight. The bottom end has some of the best overtaking capabilities, which makes it very addictive.
The Road Glide Special is the king of the highways thanks to its 163Nm torque. This Harley quickly reaches some unlawful speeds. But how it accomplishes it is what stands out. The Engine feels not even a little moment of tension. The bike is firmly grounded with that chassis and the extended wheelbase to credit for the unwavering high-speed stability.
Remarkably, the Road Glide is an excellent motorbike in tight turns. There is great confidence to tip the motorcycle in turns even with limited cornering clearance. The back-to-back twists do not cause much tiredness, but this is a minor point. The system provides adequate bite and advancement, and the power is more than sufficient for a bike of this size.
A few distinctive features are included with the Road Glide Special. First, there’s this music system, which provides excellent music. The sound quality and impact on the ears are excellent, even when travelling at highway speeds of triple digits.
The full-colour TFT screen comes next. It has a touchscreen, but because it is so far away from the rider, using it can be a little challenging. However, the touch is effective, and the system has several useful functions like voice recognition, Bluetooth, GPS, and radio.
Additionally, the panel displays the air temperature, oil pressure, and tyre pressure as standard equipment. The bicycle also has a USB port for charging and playing music.
Furthermore, this Harley will have Reflex Defensive Rider Systems (RDRS), which combines cornering TCS and ABS. Every second, the six-axis IMU is at work to keep the rider safe on shaky roads or in emergencies.
A ground-breaking, high-performing system and electronically linked braking that increases riders’ road safety confidence and brake power and predictability. The Harley Davidson Road Glide Special also includes double-channel ABS brakes (Anti Lock Braking System).
Its capable braking system’s powerful dynamism can control the bulky cruiser sports, a product of 300 mm front disc brakes with a four-piston calliper and 300 mm rear disc unit along with a four-piston calliper.
