2015 Harley-Davidson FLHTCUL Electra Glide Ultra Classic Low Review

2015 Harley-Davidson FLHTCUL Electra Glide Ultra Classic Low on Totalmotorcycle.com

When you set out to improve the most respected touring machine on earth, you don’t take shortcuts and you sure as hell don’t accept any limits…

The 2015 Electra Glide® Ultra Classic® Low offers the lowest seat height available in a premium touring bike and a package of features designed to address comfort and fit issues fit for riders under 5 feet 7 inches tall.

Those features include:

A seat height of 25.6 inches allows more riders to place both feet flat on the ground when the motorcycle is stopped, and a new low-profile seat reduces the reach to the foot controls. Premium lowered front and rear suspension lowers the bike’s center of gravity and makes it easier to lift the motorcycle off its jiffy stand, yet delivers outstanding comfort and handling.
The overall width of the primary drive housing and derby cover are reduced to further improve leg clearance to the ground.
A pull-back handlebar places hand controls two inches closer to the rider, putting many riders in a more comfortable position that can reduce back and shoulder strain.
Smaller-diameter hand grips reduce the finger reach to the brake and clutch levers.
Assist and Slip (A&S) hydraulic clutch reduces lever effort 23 percent, a key benefit in stop- and-go traffic.
A new passenger footboard mount allows the footboards to be folded up so they are out of the way when pushing the motorcycle in a garage or driveway.
A new toe tab extension reduces the reach required to retract the jiffy stand.

Visually indistinguishable from standard Harley-Davidson Touring models, the Ultra Classic® Low is equipped with the full complement of Project RUSHMORE features that set the standard for long-haul touring comfort and convenience. The High Output Twin Cam 103™ engine provides abundant power for touring two-up and confident passing. A wind tunnel-tested Batwing fairing with Splitstream vent limits head buffeting.

The Boom!™ Box 4.3 audio system features Bluetooth capability and a 25-watt per channel amplifier driving four speakers. A King Tour-Pak® and hard saddlebags with One touch latches, Reflex™ Linked Brakes with ABS, Daymaker™ LED lighting, electronic cruise control, and the H-D® Smart Security System are standard features.

Lower than Low

Harley-Davidson® takes fit further with the 2015 Electra Glide® Ultra Classic® Low and Ultra Limited Low motorcycles, new models that offer the lowest seat height, and the highest rider confidence, available in a premium touring bike. The seat is slammed to get a rider’s feet closer to the pavement, but that’s just one of the ergonomic enhancements built into these new Low models that offer more freedom to more riders, right off the showroom floor.

From the width of the primary drive housing to the diameter of the hand grips, Harley-Davidson went over its premium Touring motorcycles from top to bottom, responding to customer input to develop a better fit for riders as short as 5 feet 5 inches tall. Visually indistinguishable from standard Harley-Davidson Touring models, the new Ultra Classic Low and Ultra Limited Low are also equipped with the full complement of Project RUSHMORE features that have recalibrated the expectations of touring motorcyclists. The look, sound and feel of the premium Harley-Davidson Touring experience is unaltered, but the fit will be right for more riders.

“With these new models we are addressing the important issue of fit, perhaps the ultimate expression of personalization,” said Michelle Kumbier, Harley-Davidson Senior Vice President of Motorcycle Operations. “These Low models will allow many riders to feel more comfortable and more confident when they settle into the seat.”
The Ultra Classic Low and Ultra Limited Low share a package of features designed to work together to address comfort and fit issues specific to riders of shorter stature.

• A seat height of 25.6 inches – 1.7 inches lower than the Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Ultra Classic model and the lowest of any premium touring motorcycle on the market today – allows more riders to place both feet flat on the ground when the motorcycle is stopped. A new low-profile seat reduces the reach to the foot controls. Premium front and rear suspension lowers the bike’s center of gravity and makes it easier to lift the motorcycle off its side stand, yet delivers outstanding comfort and handling.
• The width of both the primary drive housing and derby cover has been reduced to further improve leg clearance to the ground.
• A new handlebar places the hand controls two inches closer to the rider, putting many riders in a more comfortable position that can reduce back and shoulder strain.
• Smaller-diameter hand grips reduce finger reach to the brake and clutch levers.
• Assist and Slip hydraulic clutch reduces lever effort, a key benefit in stop-and-go traffic.
• A new passenger footboard mount allows the footboards to be folded up out of the way when pushing the motorcycle in a garage or driveway.
• A new toe tab extension reduces foot reach required to retract the side stand.

The 2015 Electra Glide® Ultra Classic® Low sets the standard for long-haul touring comfort and convenience. The High Output Twin Cam 103™ engine provides abundant power for touring two-up and confident passing. A wind tunnel-tested Batwing fairing with splitstream vent limits head buffeting. The Boom!™ Box 4.3 audio system features Bluetooth capability and a 25-watt per channel amplifier driving four speakers. A King Tour-Pak® carrier and hard saddlebags with One-Touch latches, Reflex™ linked brakes with Anti-lock Braking System, Daymaker™ LED lighting, electronic cruise control, and the H-D™ Smart Security System are standard features.

The 2015 Ultra Limited Low redefines touring motorcycle refinement. The Twin- Cooled™ High Output Twin Cam 103™ engine delivers steady performance in any riding situation. A Touch screen and GPS navigation are features of the 100-watt Boom! ™ Box 6.5GT infotainment system. Contrast chrome Impeller cast-aluminum wheels, rich two-tone paint schemes, a premium Tour-Pak luggage rack, premium saddlebag travel bags and a premium Tour-Pak travel-pak are among the deluxe features of the Ultra Limited Low.

2015 Harley-Davidson FLHTCUL Electra Glide Ultra Classic Low Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

All the features and benefits of the standard Electra Glide Ultra Classic PLUS:

Premium Lowered Front and Rear Suspension

We added premium 1 inch lowered front and rear suspension on the Ultra Limited Low motorcycle, moving it closer to the pavement than it is on the Ultra Limited motorcycle. It not only gives you a low-slung look, it drops your center of gravity for easier handling and puts your feet that much closer to the ground when you’re stopped. The ride, though, stays smooth, thanks to premium components tested and proven over miles on the test track and on the open road.

Lowest Seat Height In Touring

The seat of the Ultra Limited Low motorcycle is as low as you can go on a top-of-the-line Grand American touring machine. It makes lifting the bike off the side stand easier and puts the ground within a short reach of your boot soles.

Premium Low Hand-Adjustable Rear Suspension

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 taste—the easy way.

Reduced Width Primary Housing and Derby Cover

Getting both feet flat on the ground gets easy on the Ultra Limited motorcycle. We reduced the width of the primary housing and derby cover to give your left leg a straighter shot to the pavement. It might seem like a little detail, but it’s the little details that make the difference between any motorcycle and the one that’s perfect for you to ride.

Shorter Windscreen For Reduced Head Buffeting

Head buffeting is caused by the vacuum of air created by the windscreen. On the Electra Glide® Ultra Classic® Low motorcycle we reduced the height of the windscreen. It’s a simple equation: Less height = less vacuum = less head buffeting.

New Assist & Slip Hydraulic Clutch

Clutch effort goes way down on the Electra Glide® Ultra Classic® Low motorcycle. Thanks to the new Assist & Slip hydraulic clutch, you can ride all day through stop-and-go traffic without wearing out your hand and forearm.

New Handlebar Position and Reduced Diameter Grips

A new, closer handlebar position and reduced diameter grips combine to make working the clutch and front brake levers easy on the new Electra Glide® Ultra Classic® Low motorcycle. Long story short, it’s less reach for your arms and fingers.
