– 2006 Harley-Davidson FLHRS/I Road King Custom
The Road King® Custom arrives on the scene with the power and style of a traveling rock-and-roll show, drawing fans from all over. No one can resist a glimpse of the swept-back chrome visor atop pullback beach bars. It’s styling as only Harley-Davidson can push it. Clean leather bags with hidden supports and latches. Electro-formed, chromed metal fuel tank emblems. Streamlined floorboards and passenger pegs. Tank-mounted stretched chrome console. The sweet sounds of a Twin Cam 88® powertrain. And with the Custom’s smooth-riding, refined chassis and lowered air-adjustable rear suspension, this is definitely one show that always hits the road in style.
FLHRS/I Road King® Custom Model Overview
Lean and clean the FLHRS/I Road King Custom rolls with a cool attitude inspired by the California beach scene. A smooth front fender, swept-back chrome wind deflector and pull back Beach handlebars, and leather-covered smooth hard bags give the Road King Custom a streamlined, liquid profile. Low Profile rear suspension and a deep bucket seat combine for a seat height of just 26.1 inches, the lowest in the Touring family. Chrome Slotted Cast Alloy wheels, nickel-plated tank badges, bullet front and rear turn signals, streamlined rider footboards, passenger pegs and brake pedal, and a smooth chrome fuel tank console are exclusive custom features. Offered in eight solid, Sunglo and pearl colors for 2006.
