2016 Harley-Davidson Road Glide Special

When it comes time to make a bike a Special, Harley-Davidson knows what to do. In the case of the 2016 Harley-Davidson Road Glide Special, the Motor Company took the new Road Glide and added Reflex Linked Brakes with ABS, the loud and clear Boom! Box 6.5 GT sound system with GPS navigation, hand-adjustable low-profile shocks, and hand-applied pinstriping.

All the things that make the standard Road Glide are there, making the Road Glide Special a nice upgrade on the open road or while profiling in town with a 19-inch front Enforcer cast aluminum wheel. A reduced-with primary housing and derby cover show up on the Road Glide Special in 2016.
