– 2006 Harley-Davidson FLTRI Road Glide
The Road Glide® is all the power and glory of the H-D® touring tradition taken down a different road. One look at this minimalist machine and you can’t resist the urge to log a few thousand adventures. The design is sleek, so the wind won’t hold you back. Frame-mounted wind-splitting fairing with silver-faced instrument cluster and twin headlights. Angled hardbags, a sculpted seat and slashing graphics complete the streamlined look. There’s a new Advanced Audio System by Harman/Kardon™. Only thing more powerful than the stereo is the silver and chrome Twin Cam 88® engine. The perfect machine for propelling you in the opposite direction of everyone else.
FLTRI Road Glide® Model Overview
Clean, unadorned styling and a distinctive, frame-mounted fairing set the FLTRI Road Glide apart from other Harley-Davidson touring motorcycles. Because it’s mounted to the frame instead of the handlebars, the wind-splitting fairing reduces weight on the fork and handlebars to give the Road Glide responsive handling. Weather protection remains outstanding. The fairing holds a cockpit-style instrument display and a new 40-watt Advanced Audio System by Harman/Kardon. Hard-shell saddlebags, cruise control and Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection are standard. New black slashing graphics create a bold contrast on lighter color combinations that were not offered in the past. The Road Glide is available in eight color combinations for 2006, including new Fire Red Pearl and new Deep Cobalt and Yellow Pearl.
