– 2006 Harley-Davidson FLHR/I Road King
Get in the saddle of a Road King® and instantly you declare there is no horizon too distant. The bold profile hits you first. FL forks. Full fenders. Big chrome headlight and nacelle. Everything here is fit for a royal journey. Like an air-adjustable suspension and refined chassis. Detachable windshield. Weather-resistant, lockable saddlebags. Two-up seat. Beneath all the form lies the function an isolation-mounted, black powder-coated and chrome-covered Twin Cam 88® engine in carb or EFI. More riders are choosing the EFI option for the smoothest, most reliable starting and operating. The Road King commands you to ride. You nod, thumb the starter and gladly obey.
FLHR/I Road King® Model Overview
The FLHR/I Road King offers classic Harley-Davidson styling with the long-range comfort of the Touring chassis. Locking, weather-resistant hard-shell saddlebags and a large, detachable windshield handle luggage and the weather.

The big, clear-lens Hiawatha headlight and new clear-lens auxiliary passing lights, console-mounted speedometer and a deep skirted FL front fender deliver the style.
