2016 Harley-Davidson Road King

Powered by the High Output Twin Cam 103 with hydraulic clutch, the 2016 Harley-Davidson Road King is a premier bagger.

The hard saddlebags have convenient new One-Touch latches, as well as a new bag guard that leaves more room for the passenger’s legs.

Stiff triple clamps grab beefy 49mm forks, and the Road King has a dual halogen headlight for high visibility and night functionality. The cast aluminum Impeller wheels are stock, though laced wheels are optional, as is ABS. There are plenty of new colors this year, plus the narrower primary housing and derby cover.
