2018 Harley-Davidson Road Glide Ultra Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

The ultimate mile-eater for the rider who knows nothing’s out of bounds.

 

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.
