Second H-D Trike Platform

Harley-Davidson will offer two models on its three-wheel Trike motorcycle platform for 2010, as the new Street Glide Trike joins the Tri Glide Ultra Classic. As its name implies, the Street Glide Trike brings the lean, stripped-down, hot-rod styling of the two-wheeled Street Glide model to the three-wheel category. With a smoked mini wind deflector and no Tour-Pak luggage carrier, the Street Glide Trike is lighter and more compact than the Tri Glide Ultra Classic.

With its Trike platform, Harley-Davidson brings original-equipment design, quality and service to the three-wheel motorcycle segment. Both Trike models utilize a frame and associated chassis structure and geometry engineered specifically to handle the loads generated by the steering forces and weight of a three-wheel vehicle. The rear-axle assembly utilizes an aluminum center section with steel axle tubes. Dual front disc brakes are complemented by a Hayes Brake dual-disc rear brake system with a lever-actuated, integrated parking brake.

Both the Street Glide Trike and the Tri Glide Ultra Classic models are powered by a rubber-mounted, Twin Cam 103 V-Twin engine with Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI), rated at 101 ft. lbs. of torque. The 6-speed Cruise Drive transmission features a new helical-cut fifth gear. An optional electric reverse ($1,195) is integrated with the rear differential assembly and engaged with a handlebar-mounted control with LED indicator.

The molded-composite Trike bodywork is a perfect color match for the tank and front fender. Because the rear fenders are each a separate piece from the rest of the rear bodywork, they can be removed individually for repair, replacement or service. The trunk provides 4.3 cubic feet of storage space and 50-pound capacity. Matching black and machined split seven-spoke cast aluminum wheels provide an integrated, factory-built look.
