2018 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Ultra Classic Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

Since 1965, the ELECTRA GLIDE® model has been the choice of riders who want the essential touring machine. One ride and you’ll know why.

 

Harley-Davidson Touring Story – Long haul comfort. No restraints.

Harley-Davidson® Touring models feature long haul comfort combined with power that will unleash your soul. Spanning decades of heritage and nostalgia, Touring bikes began their lineage in 1936 when the Motor Company introduced a new engine design nicknamed the Knucklehead. From that heritage grew the powerful Milwaukee Eight® engine with more power, comfort, and handling to go the distance, making piling up the miles
rewarding and comfortable for both rider and passenger.
