The Harley-Davidson Road Glide has always been popular among those who prefer tourers. The Road Glide features a frame mounted fairing, high raised handlebars, low slung seat, a 4.3-inch infotainment system, and a smart security system.
Powering the motorcycle will be the new Harley-Davidson Milwaukee Eight V-Twin engine that produces 151Nm of torque. The engine features four valves per cylinder, and the engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The Harley-Davidson Road Glide rides on 19-inch front and 16-inch rear wheels.
In India, the Harley-Davidson Road Glide will be offered in four colours: Black, Blue, Red, and Silver. Being sold as a CBU in India, expect the motorcycle to cost around Rs. 28 – 30 lakh in India. This will put the Road Glide directly in competition with the Honda Goldwing and the Indian Chief Vintage.
