– 2006 Harley-Davidson FLHTC/I Electra Glide Classic
A beet-red sun erupts over the skyline as you tuck the last provisions into the hardbags. Backside eased into the comfort-stitched saddle, you turn on the new Advanced Audio System by Harman/Kardon™, giving the sunrise a soundtrack all its own. It’s a brand new day courtesy of the Electra Glide® Classic. Odds are, it’ll be a good one. You’ll enjoy the better part behind a fork-mounted fairing with all the instruments, riding on an air-adjustable suspension. Triple-disc brakes. A redesigned Tour-Pak® luggage box for more passenger room. Wraparound backrest. And the relentless EFI Twin Cam 88® powertrain to propel you to the next brand new day and beyond.
