Harley-Davidson Touring Chassis

The Harley-Davidson Touring frame is designed for the long haul, with a rigid backbone design to sustain the weight of passengers and luggage and to support current engine power.

  • Front suspension with dual bending valve internal technology for linear damping performance and a smooth ride.
  • Emulsion technology rear shocks are calibrated for touring and feature a single-knob pre-load adjustment that does not require tools or maintenance.
  • Lowered rear suspension gives Special models a slammed stance.
  • Prodigy cast-aluminum wheels (19-inch front, 18-inch rear) are exclusive to Special models.
  • Standard Reflex™ Linked Brembo Brakes with ABS (Antilock Braking System) is designed to help prevent the wheels from locking under braking to assist the rider in maintaining control when braking in a straight-line. ABS operates independently on front and rear brakes to help prevent uncontrolled wheel lock in urgent situations.
  • Optional RDRS Safety Enhancements (formerly known as RDRS) – A collection of technologies designed to match motorcycle performance to available traction during acceleration, deceleration and braking. Includes linked braking, ABS, traction control, drag-torque slip control, tire pressure monitoring system, and vehicle hold control.
