2013 Harley-Davidson FLHR Road King Features and Benefits
When the original Harley-Davidson® Road King® motorcycle was introduced
in 1994, it didnt take long for it to obtain iconic status. Its heritage
goes all the way back to the original 1965 Electra Glide® model. It may
look like a timeless boulevard cruiser, but it is also a fully equipped, long-distance
The Road King® model features a detachable windshield, an air-adjustable
touring rear suspension, and a comfortable seating position just what

Classic Fuel Tank
Part of the unmistakable style of the Harley-Davidson® Road King® motorcycle is plenty of room for showing off your paint. This classically styled, bold six-gallon fuel tank doesn't just give you a bigger canvas for premium or custom paint; it holds six gallons of go so you can eat up a lot more road between pit stops. A dual-color paint scheme and unique Harley-Davidson waterslide graphics give this bike a truly one-of-a-kind look.
Classic Hiawatha Headlamp
Big and commanding, this headlamp hearkens back to the Big Twins of the 60s. You get nothing less than the latest in materials and technology. Clear-lens reflector optics provide a longer distance high beam and wider low beam. It's a bright, striking daytime lamp that blasts a little further into the night. There's just no beating the classic lines of that sweeping headlight nacelle.
These injection-molded hard bags have room for 2.26 cu. ft. volume of long-haul luxuries and a perfect surface for showing off some premium paint. Even better, these saddlebags open from the top, so your gear won't end up spilled all over the highway. They keep your fancy unmentionables dry, and the chrome latches won't corrode in bad weather. And when you're off the road, one common key starts the bike and gives you access to your saddlebags, keeping your pockets as uncluttered as your bike's classic design.
Tank Mounted Gauges
Tank-mounted fuel gauges boast traditional styling while offering you a clean, unobstructed view of the electric speedometer and odometer. A little chrome never hurts either. You'll only find these unique gauges on the Road King® and Road King® Classic models.
Large 17-Inch Front Wheel
If you crave long-haul agility on rides of all distances, then you're going to love this big, mighty wheel. Its low aspect ratio helps the Road King® model maintain its legendary tight turning radius, balanced feel and superior low-speed maneuverability. The 110th Anniversary Edition comes sporting the classy but just-slightly-sinister looking Contrast Chrome wheels front and back, for a touch of dark that sets off the spokes' shine.
Low Mounted License Plate
We keep the back end clean and classy with a low mounted license plate that features little visible hardware. As an extra touch, we throw some LED lighting around the tag for crisp visibility and stylejust enough to give your tail end a glow when you're riding through the night. This completes the classic, uncluttered look of the Road King® model.
Up to two times thicker than the competition, custom quality paint comes standard on all Harley-Davidson® motorcycles. Clearcoat layering up to five mils deep. Bigger metal flakes. Unique effects in the sunglo and pearl colors. Skimping simply is not in our vocabulary.
Hand Finished Fuel Tank
All Harley-Davidson® fuel tanks are finished by handthat's what makes them stand out from the competition. Their seamless design and unmatched style are unique among all motorcycles on the road. The tanks are one of the first and last things people notice when they lay their eyes on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycleso we make it worth their time.
Twin Cam 103 Engine Heritage
The knowledge of what makes an engine truly move a rider runs deep at The Motor Company, and it was put to good use when we created the Twin Cam 103; engine. We sweated bullets perfecting every cubic inch, pushing design and technology forward. And we did it all without compromising one bit of Harley-Davidson's unique styling. Evolved, yet carrying on the legacy of the Flathead, Knucklehead, Panhead, Shovelhead, Evolution®, Twin Cam 88®; and Twin Cam 96 engines that came before. The performance and durability are a direct result of the untold miles logged on the V-Twin since 1909, and the proud heritage that comes from a century's worth of commitment to life on two wheels.
Twin Cam 103 Engine Innovation
Fire up the Twin Cam 103 engine and feel the low-end torque unleashed. Thanks to the lightweight piston design, delivery of the added power is more refined than ever. Then put your foot on the shifter and feel how the engine and Six-Speed Cruise Drive® transmission were designed to work together. Six speeds. A strong driveline and strong internal parts. Low routine maintenance. And a low cruising rpm couldn't feel better.
Pure Harley-Davidson Styling
Feast your eyes on the Twin Cam 103 engine and there's no mistaking its roots. This is authentic Harley-Davidson style through and through with an attention to detail you won't find from any other motorcycle company. Black powder-coated heads and cylinders are highlighted by machined cooling fin tips and chrome rocker covers. It's a jewel machined out of metal. Pure. Dripping with power. From the classic edge of the cooling fins to the clean lines of cases and coversthe Twin Cam 103 engine makes an ironclad statement about holding on to what's right and staying true to what satisfies.
Six-Speed Cruise Drive®
You want a ride that rumblesnot begs for mercywhen you lean on
it a little. The Six-Speed Cruise Drive® transmission provides smooth,
quiet shifting and reduces engine speed on the highway, so you get a better
match between engine turnover and road speed. And the Isolated Drive System
makes acceleration flow in a smooth, steady stream from your wrist right down
to the pavement. It's a rare ride when a bike responds like this, and a low
growl goes a long way when you're opening up the road ahead.
Four-Point Engine Isolation System
Just get that Big Twin idling and feel the differencethere's almost nothing to feel. Our four-point rubber engine isolation system perfects the delicate balance of shake, rattle and ride, keeping the powerful engines vibrations from getting to you, for a smooth, comfortable ride mile after mile.
Twin Cam 103 Engine Power
Live your ride to the power of Twin Cam 103. The air cooled Twin Cam 103 Harley Davidson® engine delivers more stump pulling torque, while its Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection jetting gives crisp, lively throttle reaction. Its a performance punch that youll appreciate when passing, climbing hills, or rolling with luggage packed or a passenger in backall under that signature Motor Company rumble. And it comes at lower cruising rpm, so you ride more smoothly, with less engine vibration and better highway fuel economy.
Cruise Control (Optional - Standard on 110th Anniversary Edition)
If you're ready to take touring to the next level, the optional cruise feature will help you settle in for the long haul. Get the comfort of the cruise without the cables cluttering up your handlebar. Our electronic throttle control technology makes it possible to have the best of both worlds. Offered standard for the 110th Anniversary Edition.
Anti-Lock Brakes (Optional - Standard on 110th Anniversary Edition)
When it comes to the Road King® model with optional ABS, "stopping power" has a double meaning. The components of our ABS are tastefully hidden within the wheel hub, so you'll still turn heads with clean, streamlined design. More importantly, though, you get certainty in the saddle knowing your bike's going to behave when you need it. Offered standard for the 110th Anniversary Edition, or as part of the optional "Security Package" (which includes the H-D® Smart Security System).
H-D® Smart Security System (Optional - Standard on 110th Anniversary
The factory installed next-generation security system features a hands-free fob that automatically arms and disarms the vehicle electronic security functions as you approach and walk away from the bike. Stick the fob on your ignition key ring and let it do all the work. It's this attention to details and security that make Harley-Davidson® motorcycles unique. Offered standard for the 110th Anniversary Edition, or as part of the optional "Security Package" (which includes Anti-Lock Brakes).
Artfully Hidden Technology
Harley-Davidson leverages the latest in technology without compromising style and function. That means we hide electronics. The whole wiring harness is skillfully routed behind the jewels of the bikethe tank, engine and all the other eye-popping features you want to see. It's just another way The Motor Company goes the extra mile to give its bikes that premium, top-of-the-line fit and finish.
Dunlop® Multi-Tread Tires
The 180mm back tire is engineered to do more than fill out the rear fender and put a bigger patch of rubber on the road. Dunlop® Multi-Tread technology uses harder compounds at the center and softer on the sides for a tire that still knows how to knuckle-down on corners. Perfect for making this bike agile on every curvy stretch of road. And the way it feels going through an abrupt off-camber turn will put a grin on your face that'll last to the next state line.
Confidence. Control. High-performance dual disc Brembo® brakes offer consistent stopping power at all speeds. The 4-piston front and rear caliper with dual front rotor brake system is state of the art and top of the line. It's just another way The Motor Company puts a high level of detail into their bikes to give you peace of mind throughout your journey.
With air-adjustable suspension that comes standard, you can dial in your ride to accommodate heavier or lighter payloads, battle unexpected road conditions or simply set it to how you like to roll. The lighter the load, the softer you can go by decreasing the air pressure a bit, or increase the air pressure for a more firm ride. A convenient air valve is located between the saddlebag and rear fender for quick adjusting. It's all about rider and passenger comfort and setting your bike to fit your tastethe easy way.
Frame and Swingarm
Change everything. Lose nothing. Our complete redesign of the frame and swingarm has only been around since 2009, and it's already changing the game entirely. Stamped and welded parts and bent tubing were ditched for strong castings and forgingsjust like the legendary Harley-Davidson frames of years past. The result is a frame that rides rigid and owns the corners. The acceleration is strong. The ride is tight and responsive. And the feel on the road is confidence inspiring.
Legendary Low Speed Maneuverability
At The Motor Company, we believe you don't make innovative, next-generation Touring motorcycles without shedding a little blood, sweat and tears. And when you get it rightlike with the low speed maneuverability on our Touring modelsall the other upgrades in the ride combine to create a big-boned bike that is light and nimble while carving up tight turns or if you find yourself riding in a parade or group ride.
Tuned to Be Ridden
Harley-Davidson® motorcycles are different than any other bike out on the road. There's a balance to them. The steering, the maneuverabilityit's all in concert. And each Harley-Davidson® model is tuned differently to create a unique riding experience for each individual no matter which bike they swing their leg over. Let's face it, we didn't get to where we are by being like everyone else.
Two-Up Road King® Seat
A classic feature revamped for contemporary looks and performancewithout sacrificing an ounce of nostalgic style. Sculpted with a deep bucket and narrow neck this ultimate Touring saddle relieves pressure on your thighs, while providing more back support and comfort for a wide variety of rider sizes. And the lower seat height26.5 inches to be exactputs your feet closer to the road to enhance your confidence. Additionally, the leather trim and premium stitching accentuate the advanced ergonomics while giving the seat that sharp detail you only find on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle. It's science in service of comfort, and your way to beat fatigue over the long haul.
Full-Length Footboards & Toe/Heel Gear Shifts
Your boots were made for ridingany way you see fit. Our full-length footboards boast a time-tested, tried-and-true design and rubber isolation for a comfortable ride, while the height-adjustable passenger boards add another level of customizable comfort for your riding partner. And for shifting gears, you can use either the traditional toe-shift or the even easier, more convenient heel-shift. It might take a few rides, but once you've gotten used to the smooth shifting rhythm, you'll never give it up.
Wide Set Handlebar
Classic style and maximum comfort. That's the perfect balance of the wide set handlebars that come standard on the Road King® Classic model. They're designed to keep you comfortably propped in a commanding position while making sure your neck muscles stay calm and relaxed mile after mile, state after state. Durable stainless steel insures the structural rigidity you expect from a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle with the deep, lustrous finish you desire.
Go from touring to cruising in a heartbeat. Detach the screen for a clean, cool cruising style, or re-attach it in seconds for a clean envelope of air over the long haul. The windshield is as tough as they comedurable, scratch resistant, low maintenance. And whether you choose to have it on off, your Road King® Classic motorcycle rules with a nostalgic style and versatility you can make your own.
Welcome to the crossroads of pure Harley-Davidson style and smart engineering. The 2-1-2 exhaust helps direct heat away from the rider and passenger, while providing ample performance, and signature Harley-Davidson rumble, and big style.
Engine Idle Temperature Management Strategy
Our motorcycles are built to be ridden. A lot. So that means that rider comfort is top of mind. Always. With the Engine Idle Temperature Management Strategy (EITMS) feature, the motorcycle automatically cuts fuel and fire from the rear cylinder when idling, which helps reduce engine heat felt by rider and passenger. Best part, you can easily turn this feature on or off yourself whenever the bike is stopped.

MILWAUKEE (August 20, 2011) Harley-Davidson rolls into its 110th model year with a line of authentic American motorcycles that includes 110th Anniversary Editions of select Harley-Davidson® motorcycle models and a restyled Dyna® Street Bob® model. Harley-Davidson Custom Vehicle Operations (CVO) offers two new models, the CVO Breakout , a high-performance Softail® model with exciting new finish options, and the CVO Road King®, fitted with an innovative vented windshield and high-output audio system.
Also new for 2013, Harley-Davidson launches Hard Candy Custom , a styling movement rooted in themes first seen in the chopper era of the late 1960s that embraces dazzling metal flake paint, brilliant chrome, and styling details in accessories, gear and apparel. Hard Candy Custom elements include "big flake" paint finishes, three of which will be selectively offered as a solid-color option on five Harley-Davidson production motorcycles for 2013.
H-D1 Factory Customization expands with the Street Bob joining the 1200 Custom as Harley-Davidson models in the web-based program that allows customers to select factory-installed options in more than 2,000 combinations, build a bike on the screen, and then order it through an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer.
More than a century of experience, knowledge and riding passion lies behind each 2013 Harley-Davidson.
Highlights of the 2012 Harley-Davidson line include:
Ten Harley-Davidson models are offered as 110th Anniversary Editions, each
serialized and featuring exclusive paint and commemorative solid bronze fuel
tank badges. Production will vary by model and will be strictly limited to
ensure exclusivity. These models come with all available factory-installed
options as standard equipment. (See separate release for more details on the
110th Anniversary Editions.)
The Harley-Davidson® Street Bob® gets a tougher profile for 2013 with new blacked-out triple clamps and powertrain, and a chopped rear fender with side-mounted license plate and stop/turn/tail lights. This rowdy Dyna bobber features a solo seat and mini-ape handlebar mounted on new risers that make it easier to customize the Street Bob. New paint options include Hard Candy Custom metalflake and a scalloped two-tone option. (See separate release for more details on the 2013 Street Bob.)
The Street Bob serves as a great starting point for customization, and now along with the 1200 Custom it can be personalized through H-D1 Factory Customization with options selected by the customer using the online Bike Builder on Harley-Davidson.com, and installed as the motorcycle is assembled by the Harley-Davidson Motor Company. By choosing from different wheels, paint and engine finishes, the customer can dramatically alter the look of the motorcycle. Different combinations of foot-control location, seat choices and handlebar can be selected to adjust the fit of the motorcycle to rider stature.
Hard Candy Custom embraces a trend that's reemerged from garages around the globe. Now the sparkle of Hard Candy Big Red Flake, Hard Candy Lucky Green Flake and Hard Candy Coloma Gold Flake can be ordered as Original Equipment paint and serve as the foundation for personal customization. At least one Hard Candy Custom color will be offered on these Harley-Davidson motorcycle models: Seventy-Two , Street Bob®, Blackline®, Softail® Deluxe, and Forty-Eight . New and recently introduced Genuine Motor Accessory and Harley-Davidson® MotorClothes® items extend the Hard Candy Custom theme. (See separate release for more details on Hard Candy Custom.)
The 2013 CVO series of limited-production premium custom motorcycles features the new CVO Breakout®, a bold Softail® model that takes production motorcycle finishes to a new level with two paint schemes that feature hand-polished steel sections on the fuel tank and fenders. The CVO Road King® offers the first factory-installed Road King® audio system, and the new detachable Vented Wind Splitter windshield. The super-premium touring CVO Ultra Classic® Electra Glide® and shark-nose CVO Road Glide® Custom bagger return with new features for 2013. (See separate release for more details on the 2013 CVO line.)
