2008 Harley-Davidson FLHRSE4 Screamin' Eagle Road King

The Screamin' Eagle Road King is born into royalty as a Harley-Davidson FLHR Road King, which now includes a six-gallon fuel tank and cruise control, primed for long-distance riding. In addition, the Screamin' Eagle Road King has the new Harley-Davidson Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) as a standard feature. ABS is designed to help you maintain control during emergency stopping situations, especially those that happen in less than ideal conditions, while the new Isolated Drive System enhances accelerating, cruising and shifting.

The Harley-Davidson CVO program creates limited-production, exclusive motorcycles produced by teams of technicians in special assembly areas at the Harley-Davidson plants in York, Pa., and Kansas City. Approximately 3,150 examples of the 2008 Screamin' Eagle Road King including 1,800 serialized 105th Anniversary models, will be assembled at the York Vehicle Operations facility. The suggested U.S. retail price for the 2008 Screamin' Eagle Road King is $29,290 ($29,390 in California). The 105th Anniversary package adds $495.

The Screamin' Eagle Road King has the largest-displacement Harley-Davidson production engine, the 110-cubic inch (1800cc) Twin Cam 110, a high-performance V-Twin engine delivering 115 ft. lbs. of torque at 3000 rpm. For 2008, the Twin Cam 110 displays a new Granite finish. Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI) is standard, along with a custom oil cooler with chrome cover, and chrome cross-over dual exhaust with four-inch touring mufflers and chrome billet end caps. The engine is joined to the 6-speed Cruise Drive transmission for lower cruising rpm in top gear.

Among the enhancements to the Screamin' Eagle Road King are a new electronic throttle control technology for adjustment-free riding, revised mirrors and a new riser cover with indicator lights. The new six-gallon Touring fuel tank, which provides outstanding fuel range, is combined with a new console, gasket and granite colored emblem with hammered finish. The custom leather seat, backrests and saddlebags receive a new design, while new trim chrome strips flow with the bike on the side covers.

The chrome-and-rubber Ironside accessories collection includes hand grips, rider footboards, passenger pegs, Mustache engine guard pads, shift pegs and brake pedal pad. A tail lamp in the classic "tombstone" shape remains exclusive to the Screamin' Eagle Road King. Chrome, Road Winder Forged Aluminum wheels carry 130 mm front and 170mm rear, radial tires. Touring features include electronic cruise control, Mustache Engine Guard with rubber boot pads, an accessory power outlet, and a quick-detachable smoked windscreen.

The Screamin' Eagle Road King will be offered in three exclusive color combinations: 105th Anniversary Crystal Copper and Black Onyx (serialized models); Twilight Blue and Candy Cobalt with Ghost Flame graphics; and Black Diamond and Silver Dust with Ghost Flame graphics. Frame and swingarm colors are matched with each paint scheme. The Harley-Davidson Smart Security System with Smart Siren, an indoor storage cover with CVO logo, and a commemorative CVO key in a presentation box are also included.
