2015 Harley-Davidson FXDWG Wide Glide Review

2015 Harley-Davidson FXDWG Wide Glide on Totalmotorcycle.com

This is the ultimate combination of easy riding, free living authentic 70s chopper attitude and modern technology…

The Dyna® Wide Glide® motorcycle is all about attitude. Its tough, dark styling and retro feel, along with a retro price tag, give riders the confidence to sit low and stretch out.

The Wide Glide® is raw and true to its roots with a chopped rear fender, black rims on 40-spoke laced wheels, a black tank console, “Tommy Gun” exhaust, beefy, raked-out forks and a swept back sissy bar. Throw in the old-school Flame paint scheme and heads are sure to turn.

But, this bike is about more than just looks. 103 cubic inches of V-Twin power, lowered suspension, internally-wired handlebar with 4-inch riser and forward foot controls offer an awesome ride. And the truly attractive sticker price provides amazing value.

Exposed under-seat battery box
Exposed rear coil-over shock absorbers
Forward-mounted rider footpegs with brake and shift levers
Optional Harley-Davidson® Smart Security System with hands-free security fob

2015 Harley-Davidson FXDWG Wide Glide Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Sissy Bar

The black, wire form sissy bar is a nod to the chopper style with a slight pullback for a unique look. Black like the frame with a retro feel adds to the old-school attitude. Give your passenger something to hold, or strap on a bedroll for a weekend run.

Tank Flame Graphics (Optional)

The Wide Glide® motorcycle’s Vivid Black finish is pure and mean, but if you want to make a hotter statement, you can relive the 1970s with the nostalgic ‘flame’ design on the fuel tank. This optional custom look applied by The Motor Company is guaranteed to get stares from envious cagers who spot you blazing down the streets.

Beefy Triple Clamps & Forks

This is what makes a Wide Glide® motorcycle unique—beefy triple clamps and raked out forks for a long, wide style. The sheer amount of steel up front gives this Harley-Davidson® motorcycle a defining look, one you can see coming for miles. Just as fat and aggressive-looking as the first Wide Glide® model built by Chief Styling Officer Willie G. Davidson back in 1980.

Blacked Out Rims & Large Front Wheel

Raw, gritty and no-nonsense—the Wide Glide® model features black laced steel wheels with a large 21″ wheel up front for a quintessential long custom look. Out back, the 17″ rim is wrapped in a 180mm tire for a perfectly proportioned rear end.

Clean Rear Fender Styling

The lines are clean as the distant horizon and the fender is cut short with a side-mounted license plate bracket for an old-school look. Fastened to the fender are retro-style, bullet stop-turn-tail lights that combine to work twice as hard for you—stop beams and running lights plus turn indicators in two low-profile rear lamps.

Drag-Style Handlebar

The Wide Glide® motorcycle features an internally wired 1 1/4-inch bar with tall risers. This beefy custom handlebar is truly reminiscent of a classic, old-school raked-out chopper. And with the wires buried in the steel, you get a clean, minimal look with nothing standing in your way.

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 covers—the 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® Transmission

You want a ride that rumbles—not begs for mercy—when 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. 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.

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® and 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.

Twin Cam 103™ Engine Power

Live your ride to the power of Twin Cam 103™ engine. The air cooled Twin Cam 103™ engine delivers more stump-pulling torque, while its Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection jetting gives crisp, lively throttle reaction. It’s a performance punch that you’ll appreciate when passing, climbing hills, or rolling with luggage packed or a passenger in back—all 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.

H-D® Smart Security System (Optional)

The factory-installed next-generation security system features a hands-free fob that automatically arms and disarms the vehicle’s 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 detail and security that make Harley-Davidson® motorcycles unique.

Standard Anti-Lock Brakes

You may be cruising with swagger, but you know safety counts. This sophisticated ABS gives ‘stopping power’ a double meaning. Its components are tastefully hidden within the wheel hub, so you’ll still turn heads with clean, streamlined design. But more importantly, you get certainty in the saddle knowing your bike’s going to behave when you need it.

Adjustable Suspension

Easily adjust preload with a spanner wrench to suit your suspension to your riding style. The slammed low rear suspension gives you a more laid-back riding position and style. Low-profile, kicked back for profiling down the boulevard and hugging corners.

Michelin® Scorcher™ Tires

Michelin® Scorcher™ tires provide the superior performance, sensational grip, impressive durability and excellent handling expected on a race-bred bike. The exclusive deep-cut tread design improves grip and water evacuation capability. Grip performance and durability is also enhanced by the tire’s rubber compounds, which use the latest generation of Michelin synthetic polymers.

Forward-Mounted Controls

With the custom forward-mounted controls on the Wide Glide® model, you can kick back a little and stretch your legs for the ultimate cruise through town or across the state line. It’s time to take in the open road the way you were meant to—on a two-wheeled machine that’s built to outdo the rest.
