2010 Harley-Davidson Dyna Wide Glide | Preview
Tommy Gun Exhaust
The 2010 Wide Glide is a new Harley-Davidson Dyna model done up old-school chopper style – a low, stretched-out custom with forward foot controls that give its rider a real fists-in-the-wind profile. Its name-sake wide front end, black-wire sissy bar and available orange-to-yellow fade flames paint scheme might be hits from the bike-builder archives, but the LED stop/turn/tail light combo is new technology that keeps its chopped rear fender clean and uncluttered. The new Wide Glide is also priced to be a great value – call it affordable attitude.
The Wide Glide motorcycle is powered by a rubber-mounted Twin Cam 96 V-Twin powertrain with Electronic Sequential Port Fuel Injection (ESPFI) that produces 92 ft. lbs. of peak torque at 3000 rpm. The engine is finished in black powdercoat with bright machined highlights on the cylinder fins and chrome-plated rocker and derby covers. The 6-Speed Cruise Drive transmission features a new helical-cut fifth gear for smooth operation. Distinctive Dyna Wide Glide styling cues include an under-seat battery box, exposed rear shock absorbers, and a 4.7-gallon fuel tank with the speedometer mounted in the console.
Key Dyna Wide Glide Features
>> The lowered front and rear suspension reduces seat height to just 25.5 inches.
>> The 49mm front forks are raked out to 34 degrees. Wide polished aluminum triple clamps create more space between the forks to open up the front-end styling and accentuate the 21-inch by 2.15-inch front wheel.
>> 40-spoke laced wheels with black steel rims.
>> The handlebar is internally wired and mounted on four-inch-high black risers.
>> Black mirrors and headlamp bucket match the black risers.
>> Battery box and rear fender struts are finished in wrinkle black powdercoat. A chrome strip on the battery box has an embossed “Wide Glide” logo.
>> The front of the fuel tank is tilted up .75-inch to accent the Wide Glide chopper profile.
>> Chrome 2-1-2 “Tommy Gun” exhaust with styled exhaust shields and staggered dual mufflers.
>> Low-slung solo seat with a separate passenger pillion.
>> Black one-piece “wire” sissy bar.
>> A chopped rear fender exposes the 180/60B tire.
>> Dual red LED rear lamps combine the stop/turn/tail functions and eliminate a large, central tail lamp. The license plate mount is moved to the side of the chassis.
>> The Wide Glide model has a base price of $14,499 in Vivid Black, and will also be offered in an optional, limited-production Red Hot Sunglo and Vivid Black base with Flames paint scheme.
