The Harley-Davidson Road King – king of the road!
Timeless cruiser styling combined with all the features you need for the long haul. The Road King motorcycle truly is the king of the road!
The Harley-Davidson Road King is a touring motorcycle for the rider who prefers the look of a classic windshield to that of a fairing. Features include the powerful High Output Twin Cam 103™, bright Dual Halogen headlamp and halogen fog lamps, Impeller wheels, hard saddlebags and a easy-to-read speedometer. Reflex™ Linked Brakes with ABS are optional. Its air-adjustable touring rear suspension and a comfortable seating position are just what rider and passenger demand for long- distance comfort.
The innovative Harley-Davidson Touring chassis, based on a single-spar, rigid backbone frame and a stout swingarm developed to withstand the demands of long-haul touring riders and today’s more-powerful engines.
Feast your eyes on the Twin Cam 103™ engine and there’s no mistaking its roots. This is authentic Harley-Davidson style through and through with an attention to detail you won’t find from any other motorcycle company. Black powder-coated heads and cylinders are highlighted by machined cooling fin tips and chrome rocker covers. It’s a jewel machined out of metal. Pure. Dripping with power. From the classic edge of the cooling fins to the clean lines of cases and covers—the Twin Cam 103™ engine makes an ironclad statement about holding on to what’s right and staying true to what satisfies.
You want a ride that rumbles—not begs for mercy—when you lean on it a little. The Six-Speed Cruise Drive transmission provides smooth, quiet shifting and reduces engine speed on the highway, so you get a better match between engine turnover and road speed. And the Isolated Drive System makes acceleration flow in a smooth, steady stream from your wrist right down to the pavement. It’s a rare ride when a bike responds like this, and a low growl goes a long way when you’re opening up the road ahead.
With air-adjustable suspension that comes standard, you can dial in your ride to accommodate heavier or lighter payloads, battle unexpected road conditions or simply set it to how you like to roll. The lighter the load, the softer you can go by decreasing the air pressure a bit, or increase the air pressure for a more firm ride. A convenient air valve is located between the saddlebag and rear fender for quick adjusting. It’s all about rider and passenger comfort and setting your bike to fit your taste—the easy way.
